*UPDATED* DIY: CAI Intake, Scoop, Washer Bottle, MRTv2's, & X-Pipe Install w/ Vids

Hi all. I just wanted to post these write-ups I did on installing my CAI intake with air scoop and washer fluid bottle relocation kit and also my MRTv2's. I designed a custom bracket to mount the remote filler neck in a better location (I think). It keeps you from having to drill into the new air box as well.

The last page of the attached PDF can be printed and used as a template to create your own bracket if you'd like. The bumper removal was not necessary to do this job, but was easy and made the job a lot easier.

There are lots of pics and I tried to show every step of the process and be as detailed as possible in the PDFs, so I'll let them speak for themselves.
Enjoy.

Edit: Here is a video I made, comparing the stock intake and exhaust sounds to the CAI and MRTv2's. (best audio quality when using quality headphones)



Edit Edit: I FINALLY got around to installing the MagnaFlow resonated x-pipe and doing a resonator delete. I did the install/welding myself. Pics and cold-start video here: http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=360523

Here's the video. (sorry for the noisy camera mount) (and no I didn't get pulled over by the cop)

Outstanding post!

One note I will add because it gets asked constantly is that removing the front bumper is not required to install the scoop. It does make the job much easier though.

Thank you for your order and for creating such a great post.

Yeah, I thought about that after the PDF's were already created, so I just noted it in my post.

Great video, thanks for sharing it. Can't wait to do my axle back exhaust. Elite CC and Roto-Fab CAI done, very happy.

Good luck.

Didn't get to do it laid out all my tools and supplies, went to go jack up my car, and the jack didn't fit under my Camaro I haven't jacked the car up since I lowered it in march, and it never occurred to me that my current jack wouldn't fit. I'm gonna look for a new jack and am gonna do the install as soon as I get it
