    Video Review & Installation

    Hey, what's up, guys. I'm Ryan from AmericanTrucks, and today, I'm here with a Whipple 2.9L intercooled supercharger kit fitting your 2014 to 2018 Silverado 1500 with a 6.2L motor. Now, this is gonna be for those of you that are looking to gain a ton of power to your truck, unlike something that you would get with just any old bolt-on. Your basic bolt-ons are going to be cold air intake, throttle body, and exhaust systems. However, the idea of adding a supercharger to your truck really doesn't come across a lot. We have a 2017 Silverado with a 6.2L motor and even though this thing is pretty much stock except for a cold air intake, we've got a very good baseline. We've got 361 horsepower and 364 foot-pounds of torque. So, this is a really good start and that cold air intake is gonna make a difference of about 5 to 10 horsepower. With this supercharger, we got some very impressive numbers. This thing turned out with around 460 horsepower and averaged out at 480 foot-pounds of torque. This is a huge improvement over the factory numbers. You're getting over 100 more horsepower and 100 more foot-pounds of torque at peak RPM. However, with this supercharger, we dynoed at 311 horsepower, which is over 200 more horsepower at 3500 RPM than the factory motor, and we got 460 foot-pounds of torque. Not only is it gonna make it a lot easier to tow anything that you're trying to tow with this truck, but it's really gonna increase that fun factor when you're driving on the street. And with that eight-speed automatic, you're really gonna rip through those gears. This system is gonna add a ton of throttle response acceleration and you might even add some additional fuel economy while you're cruising down the road. Now, this system comes as a very compact intake mounted system, leaving plenty of engine bay room and looking just like that factory GEM unit. This supercharger system is really gonna come in handy whether you are towing, racing or if you're just looking to increase that fun factor of driving your Silverado around. The performance gains you're gonna get from this system is really what's gonna seal the deal as far as the purchase goes. This system is constructed of heavy-duty aluminum making it lightweight but very heat-dispersing and it has a built-in water to air intercooler, which is gonna keep that intake charge nice and cool. One of the nice features of this system is it's pretty much gonna work for each and every individual. Whipple can tune for pretty much any after modification that you have on your vehicle. Now, make no mistake, this does not come at any small expense, at around $6,500. However, the power that you're gonna get from this is unlike any other and the increase is gonna be incredible. The fact that this system comes with pretty much everything you need to install, even to tune the vehicle, leaving out no extra parts to buy in addition to this system really makes it worth it. Now, as far as the install goes, I am gonna give this a three out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. Expect this to take a day or set aside a weekend. Now, if you don't feel comfortable with wrenching on your truck, you're not familiar with it, or if you just don't feel like taking on the challenge of installing the system, I would recommend professional installation. However, in this video, I'm gonna walk you through each and every step and show you how to get this thing on intuitive. So, with that being said, let's hop into the install.Tools we use for this install: Blue Loctite, T15 Torx, Phillips head screwdriver, flathead screwdriver, wire cutters, needle nose pliers, channel locks, an adjustable wrench, pliers, prying tools, sparkplug gapping tool, a torque wrench, various socket extensions, half-inch drive breaker bar, standard and metric Allen key set, standard and metric socket set, quarter-inch drive ratchet, 3/8s drive ratchet, standard and metric wrench set, a razor blade, one and a half-inch hole saw, 3/8s drive impact, and a drill. Also, recommended items: A drain bucket and a funnel to fill your cooling system.So, before we get started installing the supercharger, I'd like to mention two things. One, installation of this supercharger requires the use of 91 octane or higher. So, if you're running around on any lesser grade, you wanna use all that up and fill your tank up with at least 91. Second thing is we want a very clean engine bay to work with. So, if your engine bay is really dirty, you have a lot of debris in there, you wanna blow it out with an air nozzle. Now, if it's really dirty, you can steam clean that because we don't want anything falling into the intake when we take that off. So, once you got all that stuff squared away, we're gonna start by disconnecting our battery on the negative side. This is gonna be the black wire back here. It's actually gonna have a minus sign on the battery. So, we're gonna use a 10-millimeter wrench, and we're going to take that off. All right. So, once you get that battery disconnected, we are going to set that terminal aside. We wanna wrap a rag around it, make sure that doesn't retouch that terminal because we're not gonna connect that back together till we're completely done with the installation. Next thing you're gonna do is you're gonna move on to at disconnecting your factory airbox. Now, like I said, this guy has a cold air intake in this truck, so some of the things that I'm gonna be doing, I'm gonna be slightly different, but I'm gonna tell you how to disconnect your factory stuff as well. So, the first thing we're gonna do is disconnect some of our sensors. So, this is our mass airflow sensor, the first thing we're gonna disconnect. You have a little red locking tab here, you just wanna pry up on that red locking tab, and then you're gonna press the tab underneath of it, this black tab in, and that's gonna allow you to disconnect it. So, we're gonna set that aside for now. After that, we're gonna disconnect our throttle body. So, same thing. You have this little red locking tab, we're gonna just pry back on that, and then you're gonna have a tab right here. You just press that in and disconnect that. Same thing, we're gonna set that aside. So, the next thing we're gonna do is disconnect this tube coming from the valve cover to our intake. Now, on your factory setup, you're just gonna have a tab, a little gray tab that you press in, and that's gonna quick disconnect that. Since we have a different setup on here, we're gonna use a flathead screwdriver, undo this clamp and take it off. So, same thing goes for this line for the factory, is this is coming from the other valve cover, just press that little gray tab in and that'll disconnect. After that, we're gonna disconnect it from our throttle body. So, it's gonna be a big old clamp around there, just use a flathead screwdriver, unscrew that, and we'll loosen it up from the airbox and get this thing out of here. Same thing on the airbox. So, you're just gonna have a clamp that's holding the intake tube onto the airbox. Let us loosen that up with a flathead screwdriver. All right. So, the next thing you're gonna do is take off the top of your airbox. Your airbox is in two pieces, you have a bottom section of filter and then the top section. So, you're gonna use a Phillips head screwdriver to take out the four screws in the corners of the airbox. That's gonna separate that top section and then you can pull out that filter because we have a brand new filter from Whipple to install.Next, we're gonna disconnect our map sensors, those are little blue lock on the backside. You can get here and just pry that out. After that, we're gonna press this little black tab in and that's gonna disconnect it. After that, we're gonna take a 10-millimeter socket, take this bolt out, and completely remove the sensor. So, we're just gonna gently wiggle the sensor out. So, next, we're gonna disconnect our EVAP solenoid line. This right here on the front right below that sensor, we just disconnected. We're gonna press in on this little gray tab, and that's gonna disconnect that sensor for us. So, after that, we're gonna take off this EVAP solenoid. So, we're gonna use this 10-millimeter socket to take this little bolt out here and you wanna keep that bolt because we're gonna reuse that later on. You need to unplug this, so once you flip that around, pull out this little red locking tab, and then press down on this black tab back here, that's gonna let you unplug that. After that, we're gonna take our throttle body off. So, we have four bolts holding this thing in, we're gonna use a 10-millimeter socket to take those out. So, next thing we're gonna do is take out these air duct support stands. So, you can use a 10-millimeter deep socket or you can use a 10-millimeter wrench. I'm gonna take these off so we can get this plastic cover off. After that, we're gonna go around and free up all of these wiring harnesses from our plastic covers. So, we have all these little gray zip ties, you can just take those and cut them off because we're not going to be reusing them. Then, we'll do the same thing on the other side. All right. So, next thing we're gonna do is go to the back of this cover right down here, we're gonna have a fastener. So, there's gonna be a bolt here and pretty much in the same spot on the other side, passenger side, there's gonna be another one. Use a 10-millimeter socket to take both of these bolts out. Next thing we're gonna do is disconnect our two vent tubes on our valve covers. So, if you have a factory one, you're just gonna quick disconnect it with that push in style, we're gonna take it off with a screwdriver. Next, we're gonna take that vent line off of the front because this is keeping us from getting this intake manifold off. So, same thing, you're gonna have these quick disconnect connectors. You're just gonna press in on the opposite side and that's gonna disconnect that and then we can pull that line off. We're gonna do the same thing on the bottom as well. So, after that, we're gonna loosen all of our intake manifold bolts. So, it's gonna be these little silver bolts that are all around the bottom of our intake manifold. We're not able to get this shield off because there's some cable ties in the back, so we're gonna loosen and remove these bolts on our intake manifold and slide that out underneath. So, you need a 10-millimeter socket on an extension, we're just gonna go around and get all those out.So, once you get all 10 of those bolts out, next thing we're gonna do is lift this cover up and we're gonna slide that intake out from underneath. Now, you may wanna grab a second set of hands if you feel so inclined. All right. So, you can't really see it while I'm doing it back there, so I just took it out already, flipped it around. On the backside of here, basically, there is a cable tie here and then there is a plastic bracket that has three push pins in this. So, you just need to pull all these out of this cover and then that cover is gonna come right out. So, once you have the intake off, next thing we're gonna do is go around and clean all of these intake ports. Now, you're gonna use brake clean on a rag, after that, we're gonna cover up these holes. So, you can either use masking tape, tape off all of these ports, or you can take a rag like a paper towel and just stuff them in these individual ones. So, what I'm doing is just taking that paper towel, balling it up and sticking it in there. This is gonna keep large dirt and debris out of these intake portsNext, we're gonna use a big old breaker bar, half-inch drive, we're gonna put it in the end of our tensioner right here in the middle of the motor. After that goes in, we're gonna press down towards the bottom, and that's gonna allow us to take this belt off. All right. So, we have our supercharger on the table and this thing comes preassembled. You're probably thinking, "Awesome. It already comes together." Well, we have to take it apart. So, the first thing to do is to disassemble this. We're gonna separate the supercharger from the intake manifold. There are 16 bolts all around here, somewhere up top, somewhere underneath on the bottom, and we're gonna use a five-millimeter Allen key to get all those out. Now, this thing isn't filled with oil, so at this point in time, we don't have to really worry about flipping it upside down. One thing that we need to know and pay close attention to is there is an actual waiting rod over here on the bypass valve. Now, once we get this separate and we've got to pull it off, we need to shift this thing so we can get this little rod out without messing it up. So, I'm gonna start on this side, work my way around, and then we'll flip it upside down and get those last few off. So, we're gonna put a nice cloth down so we can flip this supercharger upside down. So, we have four bolts underneath to take out. You're gonna have two next to this valve over here, then we're gonna have two over here. Same thing, use that five-millimeter Allen key to take those out. So, we wanna set all of these bolts aside so you can remember where they came from because these front bolts are a little longer than the ones that we took out from the up top. So, we're gonna flip our intake manifold up like this and then we're gonna slide it out. This has a little notch in it and so does this little bracket, so you need to line those two up to get these as separate. So, now that we have our supercharger torn apart, we're gonna focus on the intake manifold side. So, on the backside of this intake, you're gonna have a red plug and a bolt. We need to get that red plug out and we need to get that bolt out because we're gonna install our map sensor. So, we're going to do that first. So, to get this bolt out, we're gonna use a four-millimeter Allen key, we're just gonna crack that loose, spin that bolt all the way out. Now, before you put the sensor in, you wanna grease up this O-ring just so it slides in nice and easy. And then we're just going to wiggle this gently into the intake. Once it's in, we're gonna reinstall that bolt that we took out. Make sure that you keep that washer on there. This bolt needs to be torqued to 32-inch pounds and also be a good idea to put some Green Loctite on it. So, next thing we're gonna do is flip our intake manifold over, we're gonna remove this tape. So, you have this pre-installed tape, we need to peel all of that off, then we're gonna take a nice clean rag with some brake clean and we're gonna prep this surface. After we do that, we're gonna switch over the gaskets from our old intake to our brand new one. So, we're gonna spray this clean rag with some brake clean or carb cleaner, we're just gonna wipe these surfaces clean. Now, you get all that glue residue off. All right. Now, we're ready to switch over some gaskets. All right. So, we've got our stock intake manifold over here, we have our brand new intake manifold, and we're going to switch over some of these gaskets. So, we wanna orient them the same fashion, we have both of them facing forward. We're gonna go ahead and get these old gaskets out. So, you have a little tab on the side here that's gonna help you get that out. You may also want to gently get underneath of these and just pry them out. We wanna make sure that we don't rip or mess them up. After that, we're gonna install these on the same side. So, we're just gonna go around and do that same thing for the rest of these. Get them all switched over. If you want to, you can always take a rag and clean off that little bit of oil residue as well. So, we're just about ready to install this intake manifold, but before we do that, there's a few things that we need to do. So, one of the things is we're gonna install our map extension harness. There's gonna be a brand new harness that they give us and it's gonna be a three-pin harness. So, you have two that kind of look alike, you wanna use the three-pin one. So, this end, it actually has the clip on it, is what we're going to plug into that map sensor. We're gonna do that because once this is in the vehicle, it's gonna be really hard to get to. So, this little tab right here that actually unlocks it, we're gonna face that backwards. We're gonna press that in and make sure that it clicks all the way, then we can push in that blue locking tab. All right. So, the next thing I wanna talk about is at the front of the intake. Now, this is the back of the intake where the map sensor is. Front of the intake, those two long bolts that we pulled out from the bottom, it's actually a good idea to get these installed now because once we put this on the truck, they're gonna be really hard to get into. So, there's two ways that you can do this. You can slide both of these and these go into the two most inner holes, you can slide these in and take a piece of tape. So, one way to do this is to put a piece of tape over top of them. All we basically are trying to do is to keep these in the holes, that way they don't fall out. And also once we get this thing installed, they're gonna be really hard to access and get in. So, this tape's just gonna give us a little bit of an edge, keeping those in place. Another way that you can do this is you can go up to the threads and just put a zip tie around the threads. So, the next stage of preparation is gonna be in the engine bay. We're gonna take out this foam insulation here that's in the center of this motor and also we're gonna clean all those ports, make sure they're nice and clean so we can put that supercharger intake on and then we'll pull all those rags out that we stuffed in. So, most likely, this bad boy is gonna have a little bit of dirt and debris on it. So, you wanna be real careful when you're pulling this out because we don't wanna dump anything into these cylinder holes. After that, we're gonna take our handy dandy rag, spray some brake cleaner on it, then we're gonna wipe down all these cylinder ports. So, we'll do the same thing for the other side.So, next, we're gonna install our intake. Now, you wanna make sure that all of these little O-rings that we put in stay in place and don't move. So, we're just gonna flip this over. Make sure that our harness is up and out of our way and then we're just gonna lay it down on the intake. Now, once that's down on the intake, we're gonna take our 6 by 65-millimeter bolts that they give us, the brand new bolts that have an Allen head, and we're gonna install 9 out of the 10 of these. So, we're gonna get all of these threaded in by hand, then we'll go around and we'll torque them down. All right. So, once you get all of these bolts in, we're gonna go around and torque them all down. The first pass, we're gonna torque them to 89-inch pounds. After that, we're gonna go ahead and retorque them again. So, after you torque all those to 89, we're gonna do the second round of torquing, which is 130-inch pounds. So, next, we're gonna take our map extension harness, we're going to route this down the passenger side in between the intake manifold and our valve cover. Then we're gonna hang this on the front like this. All right. So, while we're back here, we're gonna take our IAT extension harness, this is the long harness that has a double plug on the one side and a little tiny gray plug with a blue grommet. This is gonna plug right into the sensor back here, and we're gonna face this little clip up. So, we wanna go back there, reach around, push it in until it clicks. Once it clicks, we're gonna do the same thing. We're just gonna route this thing around the passenger side. So, the next thing we need to do is drain the cooling system. We have a brand new thermostat that we need to install provided by Whipple. So, the way we're gonna do this is there's a drain valve on the passenger side of the bottom of the radiator. I'm gonna slide underneath on a creeper and you wanna get a bucket to catch all that fluid. So, we drained a good amount of coolant out of the system enough to empty out these lines up top and we closed that valve. So, we're gonna come back up top. The next thing we have to do is take out our thermostat. So, the housing is right here on the front of the motor on the driver's side, and the way we're gonna do this is take out the three bolts using a 10-millimeter socket on an extension. So, hopefully, drain enough out so that it will not make a huge mess and it looks like we're good. So, we're gonna pull these three bolts out of here. And we have to disassemble this thermostat because we have a new element that we need to put in. So, the way we're gonna get this apart is we're gonna push in on here, it has these little cutouts right here, we're gonna push in and then we're gonna turn. That's gonna unlock that and that way we can take this whole assembly out. Now, this is the piece that we need to switch out right here. So, we're gonna take that out, then we're gonna put our new one in and put it all back together. So, we took out our old element, we have a brand new element to install, so we're just going to place this down in here. There's a little valve right here and a little pin that's gonna line up in that hole. Put that back in and we'll put this whole assembly back on. Then all we're gonna do is just push this back together and then turn it until it locks into place. Then we can reinstall this. So, if your gasket, if your O-ring happen to come off, we wanna place that back on to here. So, we're gonna pull that back off because ours was a little stuck on there. We're gonna put it back into this housing. Once we get it back in there, we can put this back on. Reinstall these three bolts and then we'll tighten them up. So, I'm gonna use an impact, you can use a ratchet if you'd like. We're just gonna tighten these up just a little bit because we actually have to torque them. Next, we're gonna grab our torque wrench, we're gonna torque all of these to 89-inch pounds. So, the next thing we're gonna do is switch out our spark plug. So, we're gonna come down here to our spark plug wires, we're gonna pull each one of these wires off of the spark plug, then we're gonna use a 5/8s socket on an extension to get those plugs out. So, what you wanna do is just grab down here and then you're just gonna pull that until that wire comes off. After that, we're gonna sneak our way in, get on top of those plugs, and then we'll get them out of there. Now, you can use a 5/8s socket or you can use an actual spark plug socket. The only difference is a spark plug socket is gonna have a little piece of foam or rubber inside, and that's gonna grab onto the spark plug making it a little easier to get these in and out. We're trying not to pull from the wire and actually grab this rubber section with this metal collar around it because you don't wanna pull the wire out of the actual end. If you have to, you can twist them a little bit just to get them to free up a little bit and that should allow you to unplug them. So, basically, the same thing on the other side. So, the next thing we're gonna do is install all of our brand new spark plugs. You get eight brand new, beautiful NGK iridium spark plugs, however, they are gapped improperly for this particular install. So, these come gapped at 52,000. You need to close this little gap in here to 35,000. So, at your local auto parts store or any handy mechanic that you know, you can get a spark plug gapping tool and you wanna make sure that they have the proper gap. Now, we've already gapped all these, so we're gonna go ahead and install them. I'm gonna show you how to do that right now. So, like I said, the nice thing about a spark plug socket, you're gonna have a little rubber boot inside of there and that's actually gonna hold on to that spark plug, that way it doesn't fall into the abyss when you're putting these things back in. So, once you get all of those in, you can put all of your wires back on. You're gonna need to feel around with your hands. Now, once you press the wires on, you're gonna hear them click. You'll feel them click as well and you can give them a little tug. Make sure that they're clicked on there. All right. Now, we get to do the other side.So, at this point in time, we are almost ready to install the supercharger on our intake manifold. We have a couple of things that we need to do. This thing comes empty, so we need to fill it out with oil. Also, we have some O-rings that we need to install in the intake manifold. So, now with our supercharger on the table, first thing we're gonna do is fill it out with oil. So, the nice thing about this is this thing takes eight ounces of oil and they give you a prefilled bottle that's eight ounces. They even give you a nice little top so you can fill it and not spill. So, we're gonna do that right now. So, at the end of this rod, you're gonna have this little fill plug up here and there's a sight glass below it. We're gonna take that plug out, use a quarter-inch Allen. Once we get that plug out, we're gonna fill it up. So, you're gonna take the cap off of your bottle, you're gonna screw the new cap on there, pull this little red plug off the top. So, you're gonna need to trim a little bit off of the top of this bottle. After that, we're gonna go ahead and just fill this thing up. This thing should take all eight ounces. So, we wanna keep an eye and make sure that it doesn't overflow out of here. So, we're gonna let that sit for a little while, try to get all of the oil out of this bottle, then we'll put that plug back in. Once we run it and it gets through all the gears, it'll probably get it down a little bit, but it still should be the recommended amount. We're gonna go ahead and just snug that thing up. Next thing we're gonna do is install some hoses. So, we have these two ports back here that are water jackets. And since these are gonna be really tough to get to once this thing is already in the truck, we're gonna install them now. So, we're gonna have two very long hoses. One is gonna be over two-foot long and one is going to be over 88 inches long. So, the longest one is going to go on the driver's side. So, this is the front of the supercharger is the back so we're gonna put it on this side and we're gonna install that 90 degrees. So, each one of these is going to get one of these clamps. We're gonna do this side first, and then the other hose, the one that is over two feet long, there we're gonna have a straight in and that's gonna go on the opposite side. We want both of these hoses to go around the passenger side, so we're going to route both of them that way. So, we're gonna squeeze this clamp, a pair of pliers, then we're gonna get this thing installed, slide them into place. Same thing for this other side. So, next, we're gonna go back into the engine bay. Now, with your kit, you're gonna get two different black O-rings. You're gonna have a very large one that's gonna go all the way around this intake manifold, then you're gonna have a little one up here for the front. So, what we're gonna do is install both of these and we're gonna use a little bit of grease to hold them in place. First, we're gonna do this big one. What you're gonna do is just set it in this little-etched line that goes all the way around this thing. Next, we're gonna do this little guy up front. Now, we need both of these O-rings to stay in place. So, a trick that you can do is just to use some grease, make them a little tacky, and that's gonna hold them down in there. So, we're just gonna go around and put a little grease on top of these just to hold them in there. Also, it'd be a good idea if you wanna install this earlier on and just stretch it out a little bit and let it sit in there. Wouldn't be a bad idea. All right. We're gonna lower the supercharger down on the intake manifold. So, the next step is to install this actual heating rod into our butterfly. However, we're not gonna do that right now. We have two bolts back here that this bypass valve is in the way of. So, what we did is we took the two bolts out of the side. So, you can use a five-millimeter Allen key to take these two bolts out and then you can actually pull this thing up and off. So, we're gonna focus on getting these supercharger bolts in and then we'll get that valve back on. So, all the bolts that we took out of these top ones, we're gonna start with this first. So, all we're gonna do is just place them in the hole, line the holes up. Once we line the holes up, we're gonna get them started. So, there's two sneaky ones all the way in the back, you got one on each side, passenger and driver side. And we're just gonna go along the passenger side and get the rest of these in. All these bolts around here are the 6 by 20 millimeters. Now, the very two front bolt holes right here, they're gonna get the 6 by 25 millimeters. From this hole under here and that same hole on the other side, they're gonna get the 6 by 22 millimeters. Now, last two bolts to get in on the front are gonna be those long ones that we taped in. So, we're gonna gently pull that tape off, making sure that they don't fall off into the abyss, and then we're going to thread them in. Just makes it a lot easier not having that valve there in the way. Now, I get to go around and tighten them all up. All right. So, now we have all of these installed, we need to torque them. The first pass we're going to torque them to 49-inch pounds. All right. So, now that we have all the intake bolts tightened down, we're gonna put this bypass valve actuator back in. So let's take it back up through this hole in the intake manifold, swing this butterfly down so we can get this rod in there. Now that we got that in, we can put those two bolts back in. All right. So, when we go to tighten this thing up, we wanna apply a little bit of preload to this arm, then we're gonna torque both of these to 18-foot-pounds.So, next, we're gonna take our bypass hose for our actuator and we're gonna install that on this fitting down here. So, they give you two zip ties, what we're gonna do is wrap it around this one end, zip tie it nice and tight that way this doesn't have a chance to come off at all, and we're gonna're gonna have two ends on this. So, there's gonna be a quick connect in and there's just gonna be a rubber end. We're gonna install that rubber end on there and then put a zip tie on that as well. So, next thing we're gonna do is open up our EVAP bag of items. We're gonna have a billet adapter with a thin little nipple on there and you're gonna have these mounting brackets. So, what we're gonna do is we have a welded nut up here, we're gonna face that through there and then we're going to put our factory EVAP in with that factory bolt. So, we wanna grease this O-ring up here and we're just gonna slide that into there and we're gonna use a 10-millimeter socket to run this bolt in.Before we get this EVAP purge solenoid installed, since we have a fitting down here by our bypass actuator valve, we're gonna install our hose. Now, you're gonna have a straight hose and this hose is labeled in the bag, they have a 90-degree fitting and a straight side. So, we're gonna attach the straight side down on this thing, make sure that it clicks in place, then we'll move on to that EVAP solenoid. So, that clicked in place, is eventually gonna attach to that intake. Then next we're gonna take this, we're going to shove this down in this hole, ever so gently, and then we're gonna install that bolt. So, like I said, we're gonna use that last bolt that we left out for the intake manifold, we'll get that thing threaded in and then we'll tighten it to 130-inch-pounds. All right. So, we're gonna stay basically in the same general area, we have some fittings that we need to install into this intake. So, you're gonna get all of these male fittings in a bag, you're gonna have three of them, each one is going to get an O-ring. You wanna grease these O-rings up. Once you have all that done, we're gonna pop these out one by one. You can get these from the inside. Now, you're gonna have one that is slightly larger than the other ones. This one is gonna go in the very back, so we're gonna screw that one in, get that one started. The other two are the same size, so we're just gonna thread both of those in and then we'll tighten them up. Now, to tighten them up, we're going to use an 11/16s socket. We're gonna make sure that our O-ring sits nicely and then we'll just snug these up. So, that in line with the 90-degree that had the straight end that we connected underneath of
