Hi, I want to install cold air intake on my car but the air box is holding throttle body in place. So when I remove air box throttle body is free to move as you can see on picture. So how can I install aftermarket intake?
Do you

Hello,

Usually with a cold air intake you use silicone rubber peices to hold the metal plastic together. An example would be how I have my cold air intake configured on my 1997 supercharged mustang gt. I have a round cone filter attached to my upgrade 90mm Lightning Mass Air Flow(MAF) with screws by the MAF mounting plate. This is attached to a 45 degree elbow with hoses coming off the elbow, one to my idle air control, and the other to my Positive Crankcase Ventilation(PCV). The elbow is attached to the MAF with a silcone rubber boot. Then the elbow is attached to a vortech intake tube, attached with worm gear hose clamps. Next is attached a 90 degree elbow with another worm gear hose clamp. The other end is attached to the supercharger via another silicone rubber boot. The supercharger outlet to the throttle body is a discharge tube with my Intake Air Temperture(IAT) sensor it and it it attached at both ends with silicone rubber boots. Let me know if you have any more questions or concerns about this.

Thanks,
Alex

Yeah, but the problem is still the same that throttle body is not mounted to intake by screws or any clamps, but the big OEM air box is holding it down. So when I remove it and add cold air intake and press the gas it will pop out.

Hello,

That is a tough one. You probably will have to fabricate something that will clamp around the throttle body and the cold air that will hold the two in place. There really is no right answer here, all I can say is you will have to be creative. Sorry, I know that's not what you want to here, but in this case there just isn't a silver bullet I can offer you.

Thanks,
Alex

Thanks actually. It is helpful because I know that there is no part out there that I am missing.
