Default how do you install an AEM short ram intake for a 2002 acura rsx type-s?

Hi, i got an AEM short ram intake and was wondering how to install it on my 2002 acura rsx type-s...does anyone have any links to download instructions or anything?and the reason im using short ram is because i dont want to get hydrolock from a CAI....i live in washington so it rains alot here and i will probably just use a heat shield

return it and get a cold air intake, short ram intakes wont do much espically for a k20 engine in your rsx type S your gonna be sucking in hot air so no point, if the intake came with a heat shield use itinstalling a short ram intake should be easy remove the stock intake box you gotta take off your valve cover 1st < thing that says ivtec on it.. fit the intake with the sleeve on your throttle body tighten the clamps and after that its easynow installing a cold air intake is a btch , a short ram aint nothin

AEM short ram instruction is very easy to follow w/photos. Installation takes about 45 min. to hour.You'll notice some improvement in throttle response.
