5. Service and Maintenance:

a. AEM Induction Systems requires cleaning the intake system’s air filter element every 100,000 miles. When used in dusty or off-road environments, our filters will require cleaning more often. We recommend that you visually inspect your filter once every 25,000 miles to determine if the screen is still visible. When the screen is no longer visible some place on the filter element, it is time to clean it. To clean, purchase our Synthetic air filter cleaner, part number 1-1000 and follow the easy instructions.

b. Use window cleaner to clean your powder coated AEM® intake tube.

NOTE: DO NOT USE aluminum polish on powder coated AEM® intake tubes.
