Default Noob with Intake Questions

Hi, y'all. Don't worry. I'm not one of those guys who don't know the difference between SRI, CAI, AEM, WTF and UNICEF.
I just bought a used AEM CAI for the 1992-95 Honda Civic DX/LX/EX/Si from Ebay after hearing most of your guys' comments about intakes.
Not that I'm dissing the seller, but I'm pretty sure that important stuff will be missing from the intake, like the bolts and the brackets, but without the mounting instructions, I just can't tell. If there's any one of you who could send me the instructions for this, or at least give me a run-down of the parts I should expect to get, I would really appreciate it. There is the filter, the tube, the soft mount, and that small and short hose that goes near the engine end for certain. Could you guys tell me how to mount this sucker with Murphy's law applied? (It's "If there's anything that could go wrong, it will", if you don't know)
Also, the filter is very dirty. I'm pretty sure these things have pretty long life spans, but I'll just ask to be sure. Is it worth cleaning with a recharger, or should I just spring for a brand new K&N filter?
Thanks for the comments in advance.

go ahead and clean it, unless its so caked that its obviously not worth it. install is pretty self explanetory. you have to remove the bumper to get all the old stuff out, then you drop that in place.

Thanks, sacicons. I'm getting ready to get all the parts that might not get included in the package. Hopefully, it won't cost me more than what a brand new CAI would cost. By the way, anyone here know where I could get illustrated instruction on how to mount this thing? I could imagine how all of this could be put together, but I better be safe than sorry. Any help would be appreciated.
