Does the scoop work with any CAI? Mine is roto fab.

Thanks,

Scott

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.

Whoosh!







That is one outstanding DIY. Thanks for taking the time.

It works with any intake system that has an open bottom, which is most of them. Roto-Fab included.

Good job OP on the DIY! Just got my Apex scoop and bottle relocate done and everything went pretty smooth! My Dremel was junk so I used a utility knife to cut the plastic for the scoop! Took about 5 min and came out neat! That horn bolt is a booger! Lol, I installed my included bolt from the back and put the included nut on the side where the OEM bolt was going in! Made it a lot easier for me!! Hope to try the system out soon! Still got it on jacks for more upgrades!

Can't wait to read your thoughts after you go for a ride.

Yeah pretty bad here, literally drank 3 large bottles of Gatorade to do the job, Drove this am, and it's a pretty good combo, car feels great and pulls nice , I would highly recommend this combo, was a little worried about doing the washer bottle relo, but that came out perfect as well.

In that case just go with the scoop and be done with it.
