Apex Motorsports Washer Tank Relocation Kit & Air Scoop

By: SOPMOD & Billy Speed
I have to apologize to Apex; I have been overwhelmed with my real job, car shows and starting a car club. Nevertheless, Chase sent me their Washer Tanker Relocation kit and Air Scoop last August. I finally got it installed today. The install was very straight forward and anyone with basic mechanical skills should be able to complete the install with ease.
The car we used is a 2010 Camaro 1SS and already had a CAI previously installed. We also removed the front bumper cover in order to do some other work. While we had the bumper cover off, we also completed this review. The removal of the front bumper cover is not necessary to complete the install of this kit.

The kit removed from the package
*

Once we had the car jacked up and wheels removed.
It was necessary to remove the attached screws and
push pins that retained the inner fender cover.

Inner fender (wheel well) cover removal points.


Once push pins and screws are removed
the inner fender cover can be pulled back
out of the way to allow access to
accomplish the installation.
*
*

This is the factory pump before removal
*
*

Pump removal and draining of the tank.
*
*

This is the area in the plastic shroud
that needs to be removed. We used
masking tape and made the cut
with a wiz wheel.


Making the cut with wiz wheel.

Bumper cover is removed.
This made it easier for us to
photograph the install process.

Note: This install does not
require bumper cover removal.


We used a hand file to clean the
edges after we made the vertical
and horizontal cuts.

This is the scoop from the front,
showing the two mounting locations.


The new 2 quart tank mounted on the scoop and the factory pump is in place.


Routing of the remote fill hose. We
used zip ties to secure it outside of
the CAI.


We decided to mount the remote fill
on the CAI as suggested in the
instructions. The CAI was removed
and marked for drilling locations.


Drilling the mounting holes for remote fill.***


Once remote fill was mounted,
we re-installed the CAI.


This is what everything looks like
after the installation is completed.
Note: Bumper cover is removed
for photos.


The scoop also lines up well with Stillen air ducts.


We did have to modify the scoop to
clear the Stillen air ducts.

This was a well thought out kit and I really think Apex knocked it out of the park! It was a very simple installation and only took about an hour to fully complete. Most anyone with basic mechanical skills should be able to accomplish this install with ease. We honestly did not find anything negative about the kit and found everything needed to complete the install was included in the kit. So if you have a CAI, this is a must do modification that is very reasonably priced. Contact Chase at Apex Motorsports for this kit and many other aftermarket components. They are truly a customer service oriented company that will go above and beyond to meet your needs.

Only one nut to remove it after cover is off.
Makes it alot easier to drill the remote fill holes.
I guess if you had a right angle drill you could do it in place?

Great DIY thread. My CAI w/ scoop is on the way and I appreciate all the info. I'm planning on using two jack stands. Will that work? Also, do I need a torque wrench for the wheel?

Thank you for your order. Two is plenty. I definitely recommend getting one and torquing your wheels to spec.

I have these ducts in my lower grill. What modification to the scoop is necessary?

Yes, you may have to trim more plastic than is described in the instructions.
