how would you put in the 3" tubing without moving the filter box? and by moving the filter box you would have to unbolt from the radiator........... right?

You have to COMPLETELY remove your stock airbox, tube, etc, before installing the new intake.

no, theres no need to.
Hans, he means the resonator that comes of the front of the airbox and bolts to the radiator cover. Tanner, that piece doesn't do anything, it'* just part of the airbox, and when you take out the airbox, you'll have to unscrew that to take the airbox off. There will also be a bolt on the intake horn that goes from the airbox to just behind the head light, and another down at the bottom of the airbox. You will have to take the back of the airbox out by unlatching it from the front half, then loosening the accordian hose from the throttle boddy and pulling it off. There is also a sensor on the back half that you will have to unplug and carefully pull out of the plastic. You'll need that later. Once the back half is out, look down at the bottom of the front half and you will see a bolt attaching it to the fender, remove that, and the entire thing should lift out with some wiggling.
Now, assemble your new pipe, filter, and reducer and tighten all the clamps. Before you instal it, you have to put that sensor in it, so drill a hole just big enough to fit it, and then you'll need the little retainer ring that held it in the airbox(pull that out carefully with a pair of pliers.) insert the retainer ring in the tube, then the sensor goes in that. Make sure to test fit before you drill that hole, to make sure the wire will reach. Now slip the assembled tube onto the throttle-body and tighten the clamp, and finally, plug the sensor back into the wire you took off it earlier. Done.

He does not have a resonator since hes not boosted.

That particular piece is the same on both the boosted and unboosted motors. They needed the mount there, so the resonator kind of got grandfathered in.
