CAI and Vmax Installed!
 
Installed my CAI, scoop and Vmax TB today. Must say I LOVE them!! As an added bonus, the factory exhaust is much louder now when you get on it.

Here's a shout out to Apex and SC2150 for both being great vendors.

And here's some pics. I didn't take a pic of the Apex washer relocation kit because I installed the filler neck on the CAI box close to the front of the car and in this location you can't even see the filler neck with the lid on.

Thanks.

Yes I have. There use to be a second pause but not any more. The car performs much better now.

Thank you for your order and the mention. :thumbup: It looks great but I am sure the sound and extra power are even better.

I got the TB from SC2150. Send him a pm if your interested. He's really quick on the shipping too if he has any in stock.

Wow looks great! im thinking about getting that same set up. Do you feel a noticable power diff? I've scene pretty big numbers on the dyno with the CAI + scoop. Also was wondering if the oil catch can came with the package at all? if not how much? Thank you in advance!

I would have to say the power increase from adding the TB, CAI, and scoop is noticeable from the very first day, not a whole lot but it's there. The very next day after installing all three I went for a ride and managed to chirp the tires all through 1st gear and again after changing into 2nd without even trying or meaning to. Stock, I had to actually put effort into chirping the tires but not anymore. And let's not forget I'm already seeing a 1 mpg increase AND that's with me having more fun and getting on it more often. If I took it easier I bet I would get more.

No, the catch can I purchased from SC2150 almost a year ago, long before the Vmax TB was ever offered. How much I paid for it, i don't remember. He has a catch can thread down in the vendor section. http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=109416 I love the catch can, it was easy to install and it's super easy to empty. My only beef with it is I wish the drain tube connection was free spinning but I don't think that's possible. When you try to open or close the drain, the tube also wants to spin so depending on what you are draining into, the tube may turn away from your container and create a mess. You don't have to use it and can take it off which I think next time I empty it is what I'm going to do. But all in all I like it and prefer it over some of the competitors.

Sweet man. Sounds like after the computer adjusts to the new mods it's of the hook!? I'm looking forward to this a whole lot :happyanim:

Truthfully, I don't know. You would need to talk to one of the Vmax vendors on here to get the technical data.

You will definitely be happy with those mods, with just our CAI alone you will notice an improvement in the throttle response. Add the scoop and TB and you should be really happy!! Let me know if you have any questions regarding our intake, I would be happy to help in any way that I can. :)
