Intake Manifold Runner Control?

Anybody here ever had to replace one of these? It's what switches the dual stage intake at the predetermined RPM (5500 for most). Mine went out and was making a weird pumping noise. Anyways my main concern is once I get to it which should be fairly easy (remove front driver side wheel and plastice wheel well liner) where does the one and only cable that is on it go to? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Its actually on the right side of the intake manifold. You will see the dsi cable running too it. You dont have to remove the wheel wells to get to it.

So the cable that goes to it is that the DSI cable? That would make sense. So all I have to do is find the dsi clip and bolt the intake runner on and I'd be done right? What way do you have in mind for replacing the intake runner? I would think that the easiest way to get to it would be to take the wheel off but if you have a better way I'm all for it. Thanks for the help.

The DSI cable is on the left side (driver's side) of the intake manifold.
It's right underneath the TB.
If you remove the airbox, it will be in plain site.
There's a link with pics in a thread...somewhere.
But I don't have time to look right now.
The Daily Show starts in two minutes!

Try searching for DSI AND pics in SVT Performance Chat.
Maybe that'll find it for ya.

I would remove the drivers side head light and its right there , there is a box mounted there that runs a cable to the arm (IMRC) on the intake just below the TB

Thank you all for your help. I'll let you know how it turns out. Is it common for these to go out? I've been on this board for awhile and have never heard of anyone having problems with them before.

Put the front end on jack stands and look in the drivers side wheel well, I don't think you even need to pull the wheel off.

I certainly wouldn't go through the headlight.

Actually tom is spot-on, Go through the headlight..... It's ALOT easier, I'm putting a Supercharger on my friends SVTF and You can see the DSI box in plain View with the headlight out (3 bolts are easier than removing the fender liner and wheel)

Thanks Tom, you were correct as always. Man it was a hell of a day, I tore the whole thing apart with out checking the dsi clip post thingy and when I came to the part where I remove it I was like " what the hell its not connected to anything". So I checked the boards and found out the screw trick and got that all done and complete. Hooked everything back up and was thinking I wasted $80 on a part I didn't need. Started my car up and it was still making the funny pumping sound. I couldn't belive it,so I had to tear everything apart again and replace the part that I thought needed replaced in the first place. After I put everything back together it was running like a dream. I was amazed I was F'd on both ends, the clip end of it all and the intake runner manifold itself. I was double screwed. So its all done and I ended up looking like a greased monkey but if any needs to do it I've been through it twice in one day so drop me a pm or post back. Thanks to everyone for there help.
