No cobb doesn't have any. But is should not be that difficult. Disconnect the battery(trust me it, is better to do it now). Remove the stock system by unbolting the pieces, I think 10, 11, 12 mm sockets (an extension would be good too). Disconnect the IAT sensor. Then construct the Cobb CAI (don't oil it, it comes pre-oil). Make sure the silicone sleves are connected firmly. Place the thin strip of silicone on the fender wall. Place the head of the CAI (the part that goes into the fender) first, then connect it to the throttle body with another sleve. Then bolt everthing up, and attach the IAT sensor. Now reconnect the battery (By now I sure that it has take you at least 20 minutes, longer is better, if not more to do the CAI, so ) Start the car up, let it idle for about 10-15 minutes, then take if for a drive. Rev it up to nearly redline in first and/or second. It will take about 1.5-2 weeks for the MAP to fully adjust itself. Vola!!!

also note that the rubber filter opening end goes twards the fender, the black plastic housing is meant to work like a velocity stack after the air is drawn through the filter. The silicone coupler is used at the end of the filter twards the motor.

Back December of last year mine came with instructions... It's pretty straightforward... one thing to point out is the filter goes in with the filter facing > not < like most application.

You actually got them in the 6-8 weeks they told you? You should be ecstatic, not pissed of. And did you check under the packing slip? They generally put then there and not in the box...

I got the instructions e-mailed to me.
but anyways while 1/2 throttle before pushing it there
is a squeling noise, then it makes the grumbling noise.
Is the noise normal?

mine screams Seriously though, I am not really sure what sound you are describing and whether or not it is an issue. Expect it to be significantly louder than stock. Many people do not realize that an intake add more noise to your engine than an exhaust. With that CAI, you are opening the throttle plate like 2 feet from your face with only a milli-inch of alluminum and the firewall between you and it. You probably have nothing to worry about. If you aren't getting a CEL, it is a non issue. And I am not familiar with a Cobb CAI throwing a CEL ever on a MAP based car...

I not that concerned about instructions, it's already installed.
Before WOT there is a whistling type of noise, is this normal?
Also the 2 blue tubes that replace the stock ones are not the same size.
interior width not length.

In my 00 RS they replace 3 tubes on the stock intake, thats why they arent the same.
