Mitsubishi Magna V6 Cold Air Intake

You have purchased a RPW Cold Air Intake Kit for your Mitsubishi Magna vehicle. This kit will dramatically drop the air intake temperature going into your engine and improve torque and fuel economy. Below is a guide to installing this kit into your vehicle. We will try to be as specific as we can with detailed photos.

Installation Guides

(A) Tools Required ..... - You will require the following tools.

  1. Cutter pliers
  2. Soldering Iron
  3. Electrical Tape
  4. Trolley Jack or Hoist
  5. Hack Saw
  6. Socket set with 6" extension and 8, 10, 12mm socket
  7. Screwdriver set with medium phillips and medium slot
  8. Screwdriver set with large slot with long extension
  9. Allen key set
  10. Small hammer
  11. Small container to place all screws and clips so they don't get lost (Trust me on this)


(B) Step 1 ..... - Removing Stock System

1. Remove the Mitsubishi’s stock Cold Air Induction kit and the MAS sensor so there is nothing from the front grill of the car to the Throttle body. Then make an extension of the MAS sensor electrical lead by soldering 6 to 8 inches of cable. This can be done by you if you are handy with a soldering iron, however I am not so I got an auto electrician to do it for about $30.

2. Jack your car up, use a trolley jack and a stand. Then between the bottom of the coolant bottle and the engine bay there is a plastic guard running from the left side wheel ( from the passenger’s side ) to the lower front grill and joining the guard around the left side wheel. You need to remove this as you have to cut a hole at the end next to the coolant bottle for the piping to go through. There are 2 bolts, one near the wheel and the other next to the bottom of the coolant bottle. Also 2 plastic plugs joining the wheel guard and 1 joining to the bottom guard under the engine bay, be careful of these plugs as they burr easily. After removing it safely, grab your handy hack saw and cut a square out of the plastic where the piping will be, file off the edges with a metal file to make it look pretty. Leaving the areas where it bolts on to the car and other guards.

(C) Step 2 ..... - Fitting New Kit to Vehicle

1. Fit 90 degree silicon hosing with nipple fitting (Already fitted) onto throttle body

2. Then fit longest pipe to end with hose clamps

3. Fit 90 degree silicon hosing and face down towards the ground

4. Then fit 2nd longest pipe to end with hose clamps

5. Fit 90 degree silicon hosing and face towards side of vehicle (Passenger wheel just in front of)

6. Then fit 3rd shortest pipe to end with hose clamps

7. Fit Silicone hose adapter to end of small pipe with hose clamps and other end onto Air Flow meter with original hose clamp

8. Fit the K&N filter adapter onto the end of the air flow meter. Note there is 1 Allen Key bolt which is longer than the rest, this is to be located on the corner from which the below bracket is to be mounted to. Fit and tighten all bolts with the supplied nylon lock nuts.

9. Fit Filter and if supplied, dry charger kit and then mount into vehicle.

10.. Supplied in kit is two mounting brackets.
- the first long bracket is mounted on the top of the gearbox and sits under the hose clamp joining the 2nd Silicone hose 90 degree to the first pipe work. Place under the hose clamp so when it is tightened, it is between the clamp and the hose.
- the second short bracket is mounted off the air flow meter and supports the weight of the air flow meter. There is a 8mm bolt hole directly above the air flow meter into the chassis of the vehicle which the bracket is pre drilled to bolt up to.

11. Now that everything is bolted up tight underneath, tighten the hose clamps and support brackets every where else.

(D) Step 2 ..... - Final Steps

1. Ensure that the air flow meter is mounted with the terminal plug facing towards the sky. Otherwise it can get water into it. After fitting the plug terminal onto the MAF sensor, then using siliastic or an equivalent, cover the whole top of the plug and wiring with a good spread of silastic to stop water from slipping down the electrical lines and the breathing holes that lead into the electrical connections.

2. Fit the K&N Pre Filter Sock (If purchased) for additional water protection when wet and dusty conditions when dry. Does not effect breathing but protects longer.

3. Run vehicle and check for leaks. And enjoy.
