There are quite a few install guides in the "Install Guides" section:

You'll need more than one air hose to make the install functional. Here is a pictorial of an install detailing that.

Here are a few example pictures [Injen] of everything that should have come with your basic Short Ram Intake -- It should at the very least, come with the following items: Intake tube, Air Filter and metal retainer, Four air hoses [IIRC], Rubber grommet & two metal retainers, a Vibra-mount. Many brand-name Intakes also come with a small rubber cap/nipple to plug an unused air sensor from triggering your check engine light, and a few zip-ties.

Sorry to hear. I hope you used a verified PayPal account. File a dispute/chargeback as "Not as advertised" since it wont install to your Celica with everything that was included, or rather, not included.

Here is another "EBay Intake" that also only came with a single air tube:

Dont waste your time asking them to ship you another air tube, chances are that there will be more hassles with the product not fitting correctly or the filter disintegrating within a year. So many other factors can happen with "Generic Intakes"

thanks for all your help! I will send this piece of junk back and buy either a K&N with heat shield short Intake or a Injen one that way I will at least get all the parts and probably will let the engine last longer..
