Great DIY! Got me motivated to do mine and it was closer to 10 minutes going slow. Here are my $0.02

Open a beer and eyeball everything
Loosen the hose clamp on the far left
Unscrew the cover to the airbox
Pull out the stock filter by pushing it towards the right and pull the hose in the opposite direction to the left
Replace it with the AFE
Put everything back.
Set down your half full beer, and go for a spin. *growl* when you crank it up!

The ONLY tricky part according to me is lining up the airbox lid back, make sure its flush with the base and if you are using too much force, you are bending or stressing something.
