Car pulls much harder now, and sounds different too...

So I definitely recommend it!

My butt Dyno definatly feels and hears a big difference compared to just the CAI....definatly recommend the scoop. One of the best cost to performance ratio's Ive done so far to my Camaro.

Took me all of an hour and a half to install.

I put it up on blocks to get the jack under it, took off the wheel, took out the wheel well liner and went to work. It's VERY straight forward and directions really aren't needed... I mounted the washer inlet inside the rotofab CAI. Looks like it was meant to be there. Works great!

Thanks!

I would like to say APEX has super fast shipping, I placed my order on Friday evening and received it on Wednesday. :clap:

Well I have waited until there was a good washer bottle replacement solution to install my ADM scoop so now I have finally installed my scoop using the Apex washer tank replacement kit.

It produced fantastic results!

I have to admit my biggest fear was cutting the plastic behind the grill for proper placement of the scoop. So here are some of my tips and pictures during my installation.

First of all as suggested by the folks at ADM I taped the plastic piece to be cut vertically at the edge of the reinforcements and then horizontally to the left using this as a guide to make the cuts straight. I did not however get a picture of the how I taped this onto the plastic. Sorry.

Here is a picture of the plastic after the cut:

http://i218.photobucket.com/albums/c...ofIMG_1253.jpg

And here is the piece that came out:

http://i218.photobucket.com/albums/c...ofIMG_1265.jpg

Here are a couple of suggestions for cutting this piece out. First I used a Dremel tool with a circular disk to make the vertical cut. Put the Dremel on its low speed setting, this will make it easier to guide the tool while you are cutting and it still has plenty of speed to cut through the plastic. You will have to use the round metal tip to make the horizontal cut because there is very limited room so I went with the round metal bit. It is more difficult to be careful making the cut straight so take your time and leave the tool on low.

Next you will need to cut off an eraser sized piece of plastic on the washer pump for it to fit properly into the new washer tank. This is described in good detail with your instructions you get with the APEX kit. I used the round metal tip on the Dremel as well and used the low setting again. Just start at the top and work down the piece until you get it worn down. This was very quick and easy.

Here is a picture of the circular blade, the metal blade (on the Dremel), and the washer pump after I removed the plastic piece:

http://i218.photobucket.com/albums/c...ofIMG_1257.jpg

Next I used a conical stone grinder bit on the Dremel to clean up the opening where the scoop will go, I placed the scoop into the hole and found I needed to take off about 1/16" to 1/8" more off the bottom so the scoop would fit in better and was snug when in place.

Here is the cleaned up opening:

http://i218.photobucket.com/albums/c...ofIMG_1260.jpg

Next is the installation of the washer bottle to the scoop. Place the washer bottle on the scoop far to the right and to the top to mark where to drill the holes for installation. Make sure you go as far to the right as possible because my washer bottle fit very snug up against the back of the DRL light on the inside of the bumper on final install it worked but could have been a little more to the right about a 1/2" more would have been just right.

Drill some small holes first:

http://i218.photobucket.com/albums/c...ofIMG_1268.jpg

Then your 5/16" final holes:

http://i218.photobucket.com/albums/c...ofIMG_1270.jpg

Here is the washer bottle installed on scoop with washer pump installed into the bottle.

http://i218.photobucket.com/albums/c...ofIMG_1274.jpg

The inside:

http://i218.photobucket.com/albums/c...ofIMG_1273.jpg

Next I took off the CAI housing to install the filler piece, I went on the outside of the housing and went ahead and attached the hose so I could route it when I reinstalled the housing which worked out very well. I routed the hose along the bottom and then back to the front there will be space of about 1" in the front that you can fit the hose through when you get the housing back in place.

Here is the housing with the filler installed:

http://i218.photobucket.com/albums/c...ofIMG_1275.jpg

Install the scoop with bolt supplied on the top that will go through the front side of the horn mount. Install the bottom bolt which is one of the original washer bottle bolts. Replace the hose on the bottom pump that goes to the wiper blades. Finally plug in the wiring harness to the pump.

Here is everything finished on the bottom side before I put the fender well back in place:

http://i218.photobucket.com/albums/c...ofIMG_1278.jpg

Fill the bottle and you are finished:

Three great products that work fantastic together!!

Here is a post made by Camaro5 member Darth Emma after she installed the Apex Washer Tank Replacement Kit on her Roto-Fab equipped Camaro SS.

1) Mount the fill tube piece INSIDE your intake. If you mount it outside the intake box, there is no easy way to route the fill tube to the washer bottle because the bottle is directly below the intake. Here is where I put it:
http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5112/...cbd92245_b.jpg

We put the fill tube inside the intake in front of the filter. We had to be careful where we mounted it so that the bolts and nuts wouldn't touch the air conditioner lines outside the air box. So we took the intake box out of the car, drilled the holes, and mounted the fill tube with the bolt heads toward the AC lines and the nuts inside the air box. That way, the bolts didn't touch the AC lines.

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5038/...98862cc2_b.jpg

2) As it says in the instructions, mount the bottle as far back on the scoop as you can like I did in this picture. If it had been any further forward, then it would hit the DRL light recess on the front bumper.

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5153/...1cb0e9be_b.jpg

3) You don't really have to cut the little nub off the pump. It would fit in the washer bottle recess just fine with the nub on.

Thanks to Apex for a great kit! It work perfectly.

So i'm replacing and ordered it yesterday along with your washer reservoir relocation kit. Our club has a drag racing event saturday so would love to be able to get it all installed by then!

thanks

Thank you for your order. The items you ordered have shipped and should arrive about mid week. We do have the scoops in stock as well and could have shipped that today if you had ordered it.

will the scoop and your relocation bottle work with the stock intake until i can get a aftermarker intake?

The scoop is only beneficial to an aftermarket intake system with an open bottom like the CAI Inc or Roto-Fab. The stock intake is completely inclosed and relies on a small "snorkel" to feed in air.

I figured out a little trick to help with the scoop bolt the goes throught the horn mount. I could get it finger tight, but I could not get a socket or wrench on it. I used two nuts and locked them together and then used that to tighten the bolt. After that, I removed them and just tightened up another nut on the inside to be sure it stayed secure. Sorry, no pics. I was on a mission to get it done. It's tight in there, but I got it done. Thanks for the quick shipping and quality parts Chase! This setup it too cool! :bow:

The pricing will be identical to what is listed above. Here is a link to the V6 CAI and the black V6 CAI. Here is another link to the scoop and washer tank relocation kit.

Ordered it Sunday, got it Tuesday, now just gotta wait for my car to get home from the body shop. I never had a filter like that before; I read the cleaning instructions but is there a video on how to clean it and re-oil anywhere? The instructions said what kind of oil to use and said not to use too much, how much is too much? What kind of brush do you clean the inside with? I just don't understand the instructions.

CAI intake systems use S&B air filters. Here is a link to their FAQ page. It has the answers to your questions as well as links to those products.
