Put them on the boot and clipped on the first tab before installing the intake. Clock them so you can easily access them without removing the air rail in the future and snap them in place using a good set of needle nose pliers preferably with teeth if you don't have the special tool. It will take a good amount of force (two hands) to snap them in place.

^ bang on, I'll just add that I like to have straight needle nose and the offset or angled
needle nose pliers too as some situations favor one over the other. I'll even sit in the engine bay (mostly on pass shock tower/top of engine, just to get in a great position to get enough leverage for cyl 5 esp 6.

I prefer the clip to need to come up to snap rather than down, that way the clip's tabs are facing more towards the front of the car - more exposed (3 o'clock instead of 9). You can set this up ahead of time as L0aded said, and snap them on the first level before putting the airbox on.

Thanks for the tips guys, I eventually got it with this in mind - using very large/long pliers made the job much easier too, just by virtue of having more leverage. This video proved useful


For anyone else tackling this I would suggest getting some worm-gear clamps as they should be much easier to use, just make sure they are 10mm or smaller width or else they won't fit on the rubber boot.

One more question though - for those who went IAT/MAP, what did you do with your MAF? Mine's just hanging free in the engine bay now, I wonder if I should zip tie it off somewhere? Any other ideas?

Used a broken MAF to make a plug and play adapter for the IAT.

Or just buy the proper tool. Makes getting them on/off a 5 minute job.

Oe clamps look much cleaner and seal better. Having said that, I got worm clamps.Should be changing that soon

Another question for the gurus here. I haven't properly attached my OEM snorkel to the Karbonius box yet, looks like there are 4 attachment points.

On RealOEM here it says I need 4 x Fillister head with washer (PN 07119901780), but when I was looking at the snorkel/airbox I kind of figured it would need a nut or something on the airbox side. Does anyone know if this is truly all I need?

Well that explains my problem, based on videos I thought needle nose pliers were the proper tool Will definitely pick some of these up for future projects with these kind of clamps

The flange on the OE intake has threaded holes to accept those Fillister screws. With the Karb box, a black cap acorn hex nut would work well with the OE Fillister screws to keep it looking clean. I forget the size of those OE Fillister screws though.

It's true that it is a lot easier with this tool, but the cyl 5/6 clamps still usually take me 30+ minutes and a ton of swearing to get on even with the damn tool. If it took me 5 minutes I feel like I'd be obsessively cleaning my ITBs every couple months :P
