Comptech recommends that you read through these instructions before starting installation and that you use an Acura Factory Shop Manual to supplement these instructions. All Comptech products are intended to be installed by a professional installer. Always use jackstands to support the vehicle when a car lift is not available. Always work in a clean environment and use the appropriate safety equipment to avoid any potential damage or injuries.

Tighten (2) supplied short bolts and one long stock bolt to 6-8 ft/lbs. Reconnect Intake Air Temp sensor (IAT) plug.
