Pittdave, it bolts straight onto the manifold where the original filter housing was attached. The air temp sensor is bolted to the plate in roughly the same position as it was with the factory setup. An easy install, just make sure u leave the "O" rings on the 2 pipes that come through the plate.
Of the 4 bolts removed from the factory housing that attach it to the manifold, 2 of them get used along with 2 from the kit to reattach the plate to the manifold. The idle air solenoids are no longer used so tape up n cover the wiring, so as no water can get into it, then secure the loose wiring out of the way.
You will also get 2 spacers that go underneath the rear mount of the gas tank so there's enough clearance between the air kit and the bottom of the tank.
Used locktite on all of these bolts/screws.
There's 2 plugs that block off the 2 air idle tubes that extend through the plate, make sure these are fitted after the plate is fitted.
