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.

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

I like the common denominator here!! We hear a lot of great feedback from our customers who use our CAI in conjunction with a scoop and washer bottle relocation kit.

I have the CAI, Apex scoop & washer relocator group. I love this setup! Looks awesome and works well. I do have to fill up the washer tank a little more often but it is well worth the hassle. The best part about it, is that when I take my car in for service they no longer fill my washer tank with generic fluid becuase they can't find the filler. I only use Rain-X.

No cutting necessary. It bolts right up from Apex. It takes about 1hr 15min to do the complete installation (including CAI intake).

There is a plastic "stalk" (it is non-functional) on the pump that you may have to trim off. You just take a pair of snips or scissors and clip it off. It helps the pump fit better in the tank but some find that trimming it isn't necessary.
