I did the DYI SRI on mine and just took the box out, the rest is still in there. Fail :(

im not sure why the guage is on that box , but mines an 06 , and it goes throttle body - res box - maf tube - lifetimefilter.

so underneath where this box goes on yours should be a tube ( the maf housing) then there should be a u bend tube going to the lifetime filter box which is located inside the drivers side fender behind the wheelwell splash guard , and beyond that filter should be some tubing for the end of the intake for a cold air effect.
