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!

When I pull out on the main road leaving my house there is a blind corner. It usually is not an problem, unless someone is speeding. Well, today, a truck came flying around the corner right as I pulled out and gave me the official "op-test" opportunity.

I did not expect the scoop to work so well with my K&N intake, not being a top 10 intake on the forums. Well, a good combination of cool morning air, a good step on the gas, and I felt the difference. I felt the front of the car lift more than I had ever felt and I even started to come sideways a bit. I shot up to about 45mph in first gear before I realized I was going to end up speeding before I even shifted. Somehow I found the willpower to ease of the gas and shift normally, I am sure the approaching red light had something to do with it.

Op-test SAT - Thanks APEX!

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

Four months and six thousand miles later, my 2013 SS automatic convertible was ready for its first modification. Research on Camaro5 forum pointed me to the “air intake” from CAI as a simple but helpful upgrade. But, wait! There’s more to it than just the cool looking intake. While I am at it, I might as well put in the Apex air scoop. And, oh yeah, the air scoop requires that I relocate the windshield washer bottle.

As I read through comments from forum members, my confidence was bolstered that this was a good decision. I ordered the parts. Worst case scenario, installation would give me a very impressive looking device in my engine bay. As luck would have it, I was immediately sent on a weeklong business trip. Parts arrived and a friend hauled them inside my home while I was away. The following weekend, I opened all the boxes and carefully laid out all the parts. I opened the hood of my car and began to study the instructions. I looked again at my engine. I looked over the parts. I closed the hood of my car. No way. Not going to happen if I had to install it.

The next several nights were fitful. I would open my garage after coming home from work and carefully park next to a table full of beautiful car parts. I glanced at them, I checked the instructions and each time I reaffirmed my decision. I would then sheepishly go inside for a well-deserved glass of wine. Several days later, a co-worker asked me what was wrong as my attitude at work began to sour. I explained to her the problem and she giggled at my exasperation. Women can be cruel sometimes. She told me that her husband is really good at mechanical work on cars and she was sure he would volunteer to get it done.

Sure enough, he would do it, and we set up a date. Still another long week at work waiting for my new best friend to be available for the task. Finally, this past Friday night, he took my car and all the parts. Agony! We text a few times as he wanted decisions from me. Then, another text that he needed a tool from his dad and it would be the next day before I got my car back. More agony! At noon on Saturday his long awaited text announced that the project was finished and I could come over to pick her up.

At this point, I have convinced myself that the money was well spent even if only to have a really good looking air intake installed. At the very least, I would now be worthy enough to open the hood of my car at the next Saturday morning “Cars & Coffee” meet up.

My wife and I arrived at his home and there it was, my beautiful Camaro, resting comfortably after surgery. I inspected the engine bay and felt some of the engine parts to make sure that the operation went well. We chatted a bit, as he explained the scope of the project. He was actually quite happy to do the work. He wanted to install one in his car. Now he knows exactly how it all goes together. My car and I just became an essential part of his “learning curve.”

Time to drive! I carefully backed out of his garage. It seems the computer has already figured out that the car has new lungs. No roughness. No hesitation. My wife followed me as I drove through the subdivision at less than 25 miles per hour. Nothing was different. I knew it was in there. I’d seen it. I’d touched it. Nothing! Already, I was rationalizing once again my purchase decision and in my mind practiced defending it to my wife. Surely, we would be having that discussion later this evening.

After an eternity, I turned on to Charleston Avenue. Just one more block and we’ll be on the highway home. Radio is off, top is down, and I’m intently listening to the engine purr. Turning left on to the 215 entrance ramp, I checked the gauges and all were “up and green!” My radar detector was silent. It was time. I floored it.

My car literally leapt in to action. Suddenly, a loud growl came out of my engine. I’ve never heard that before. Pushing through the gears the growl came back with each shift, time and time again. OMG! This was a new car. Racing on to the highway, we were mercifully given very light traffic and no police. I kept up my incessant demand for more. The V8 gladly gave it to me. We were passing through 100 miles per hour and it felt effortless. No drag, no hesitation, just pure raw power.

Air now flowed impressively through the scoop and up in to the air-box. The filter cleansed it and sent it on its way along the tube and in to my engine. Air is what my engine demanded. I never knew. I felt as if I had been suffocating her for four months. Now, I was rewarded with power and speed I had never known. Slowing. Speeding up. It was always the same as the growl came back every time. Even in the higher gears, no matter the speed, if I demanded it, she would growl out her approval and pin my head back to the head rest.

Once off the highway, we came to the inevitable stop lights at intersections. Idle was again a calm 500 rpm. Light turns green and I discover that I need to relearn driving. Yoda came in to my head screaming “calm down young Jedi.” Acceleration from a stop light is quick. Since, I had no desire to run down pedestrians, I quickly learned how to control myself and my car.

The garage door opened and I pulled inside. Again the engine returned to a calm 500 rpm. As I turned off the ignition, she gave me one last delight, the sound of “whoosh” as air evacuated the air-box. My wife, behind me the whole trip in her own Camaro, heard and saw it all. No defense of my decision would be needed this night. She simply turned to me and said, “I need one of those too.”

Chase, Is there a difference between the Roto-Fab washer tank and the Apex unit? I ask this because I have a Roto-Fab air intake.If there is no difference will the scoop and the washer kit work with my air intake kit?

Avalnch 02-12-2012 07:33 PM

Hey Chase,

I tried to order your scoop and washer bottle relocate kit today but couldn't sign up with my Canadian address. Your website does not allow selection of "Canada" for the billing address. How can we Canucks order your kit??

Thanks
Tom

Our kit and Roto-Fab's are completely different systems. Our kit is set up in such a way that is works just fine with any intake and scoop set up. The DIY thread listed above by Camaro5 member Darth Emma features a Roto-Fab intake.

Canadian orders have to be placed over the phone or via email. There are some software issues that we are working on but they currently prevent us from being able to accept Canadian orders over the website.

I'll be ordering soon Chase! Got the pesky tax thing to deal with right now. Unfortunately, no matter how hard I try, I always have a number in the "owe this much" box on my tax form!!:mad0260:

What kind of real to the wheel gains can i see with the scoop? I've already got a C.A.I.

On a dyno you will see something like:

Average HP gain: 5
Average TQ gain: 6

Peak HP gain: 5
Peak TQ gain: 7

This is in addition to your CAI. Sitting on a dyno there is very little air flow over the car, even with a wind machine you are very limited, so a dyno number does not give a realistic snap shot of the real world gains with a scoop. All I can say for sure is that it is noticeable.

Thank you, I can understand how it would be hard to measure gains on a Dyno with the scoop, but wanted to see if there were any numbers.

The reservoir in our kit holds a half gallon of fluid and if you over fill it the hose holds a lot more.

Got mine installed today - I went with mounting the fill tube INSIDE the CAI so it is not visible (had to make sure bolt heads would clear the a/c line on other side).

Looks good. To me that is the best way to do it. It is all but invisible when installed that way but it is still accessible.

IROCanSS 03-29-2012 06:05 AM

Got mine in too...
