Arlen Ness Stage II Air Filter Kit

I had a stage I filter kit but as part of my winter project I had decided to a add a stage II air filter kit. Now, I have the pesky M&M EFI and thus had to make sure to get a kit fitted for the M&M throttle body (easily recognizable by the double "butterfly" air-intake whereas the Delphi is a single "butterfly" design).
I first had to remove the old backing-plate, breather-bolts, stand-off bolts, washers (x4) and gasket.

I have heard that you first add the gasket to the flange then the backing-plate; a real pain if you are alone as you need someone to hold the gasket. Well, I used the old trick of adding some grease to "glue" the gasket to the flange of the throttle-body before adding the backing plate. This kit comes with 4 rubber O-rings instead of washers. I used the same trick here; adding some grease to the O-rings before placing them in the grooves on the front and rear of the breather-bolt opening.

There is one thing I don't understand: why not attach the -4- 1/4-20x 1-1/4 set-screws first for the stand-offs before placing the back-plate on the throttle-body? In this manner the gasket is held in place before attaching the backing-plate. The holes in the backing-plate are not threaded which would dictate the other procedure of attaching the backing-plate first and then the screws for the 4 stand-offs.

This kit comes with 4 breather-bolts - 2 for EVOs and 2 for Twin Cams, they are easy to spot which is which. Leave the breather-bolts loose until the 4 screws are installed. The four set-screws for the stand-offs have an opening in one end for a hex-key and are tourqed to 3-5 ft/lbs. The breather-bolts are torqued to 10-12 ft/lbs.

The air-filter has several holes so to fit both a M&M and Delphi throttle-body. If you don't plan on using a cover you'll need to plug the holes not covered by buttonheads (screws) attached to the stand-off bolts. In my kit there was a cover for the filter element. This cover had a nylon spacer and a Allen head screw.

The whole job took about 20 mins since I'm very thorough!

Here are some more photos of the air filter element and cover. The holes in the filter element is clearly visible. I added the black cover and put on a SE-sticker. The sticker looks a bit cheesy and it will be replaced by a H-D medal that I've ordered!
