element is installed in the MAF housing which is in the same location as stock. No
changes are made to the stock ECU calibration or any other part for proper installation.
Installation of the Air Intake System requires the removal of the stock air filter
housing and intake air tubing. If the stock air filter housing contains the vehicle‘s
tune—up & emissions control decal, a replacement decal must be placed in a
similar location.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the Air Intake
System will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those
submitted by the device manufacturer.
