HOW-TO: ETS Intake and ETS UICP Detailed Install Guide

EDIT DEC 11,2017: Been awhile since I've been on here. Thanks to whoever rehosted the pics. If these drop off again, perhaps a mod can email me, and I'll put them back up. I won't get rid of the original pics.

..
I know there's another install thread running right now, but I promised the guys at ETS I would get this done.

First a review of the ETS intake and UICP.

Fitment:
- excellent. Nothing need to be modified at all. The MAF adapter fits perfect.

Quality:
- top notch quality. When installing it, there wasn't once where I wished they used something different.

Sound:
- the rush of air you hear is amazing! And the BOV comes to life too.

Performance:
- Much more responsive over stock.

Update: The heat shield needs to mount directly on the frame rail instead of the factory intake bracket.



Thanks!

Fantastic write-up and great pictures. I hope to be doing my intake/intercooler/uicp install this weekend if the parts arrive by then. This will work <Mr. Burns Voice:> "perfectly."

Thank you for the awesome photos - I just installed my intake (not ETS, sadly) and the instructions that came with it were utter crap. Better used as toilet paper.
I have installed an intake before (naturally aspirated engine), but this was a whole different ballgame with the vacuum line and bov return hose.
And OMG, that stupid hose clamp on the turbo inlet is a nightmare! I don't know how you got such clean photos of it, I could barely feel it let alone see it.

In short, I was utterly lost until I read your writeup. Also have learned my lesson and will get ETS parts in future.

THANK YOU!

I'm guessing you didn't replace the I/C piping too. Taking that out frees up alot of space.

You really need to do that piping.. it makes a difference!

I can't tell you how much your guide helped with my install. If you're ever in Denver give me a ring and beers are on me.

This helped the intake install so much!

I have just the upper portion of the uicp coming from ets, can I install that without taking out the lower part of the factory uicpiping?
