Introduction

In this installation guide we have provided step by step instructions to setup, remove the OEM boost tubes, and install the 27WON Performance Boost Tubes.

Advisory:

  • Working under the vehicle requires a safe and sturdy location for the vehicle to sit on jackstands.
  • The engine bay will be hot after recent vehicle operation. Allow the vehicle to cool or use a fan to cool the engine bay before working on the vehicle.

    • The 27WON Boost Tubes are designed as an OEM fitment replacement and closely match overall size and routing, however fitment with non-27WON aftermarket intake systems is not guaranteed.

  2. As of June 2021 this kit comes with Throttle Body Silicone. Installation instructions for that part are separate from these instructions and can be performed before or after the boost tubes.

  6. Using the 5.5mm socket and ratchet, loosen the two OEM clamps securing the intake tube Remove the valve cover breather pipe from the intake tube This breather pipe is secured with a permanent OEM clamp. This clamp cannot be removed easily so the pipe will need to be pulled free without removing the clamp. This can be difficult the first time. This permanent clamp will be replaced with the provided regular hose clamp during re-installation

    • The inner groove on the 27WON boost tubes will "pop" into position when the intercooler pipe is fully seated in the silicone

  14. Slide the other end of the 27WON hot side boost tube over the outlet of the turbocharger Image 2 on this page shows what we mean by "correctly positioning" the clamps. There should be a small gap between the clamp and the end of the silicone (2-4mm). This gap should be even all the way around the silicone. Use this image as a reference when tightening all supplied clamps Correctly position the two 60-68mm clamps and tighten with a 10mm socket and ratchet until the silicone starts to bulge slightly at the edge of the clamp
