I got an ADM race intake with their washer bottle but decided I like the look of the Roto-Fab washer bottle better. I'll do the install next week or possibly this weekend.

The quality of the ADM stuff looks to be top notch. If you aren't going to hang a bottle off of it there should be no issues with its strength.

But the light weight wheels and the scoop definitely helped in the top end. Car felt like it pulled a lot stronger. And like I said, it was 92 degrees out.
That is awesome! Above 3000 RPM is when you really start to feel the effects of that extra air flow. Glad to hear you are happy with the upgrade.

That's a good point I never thought of using Rain-X washer fluid......

I also like the way this APEX washer relocator unit looks and works....
I'm in the market for one please PM me the info as well.....

I'm sure it's on a DYI or something but do you have to remove the front fascia to install this combo? I've done that to install my lower grille ducts but would rather not mess with it again if it is avoidable.

Yeah, the Rotofab is awesome! Not sure why people are worried about a sheet of steel "breaking" though. :P Supposedly the Apex scoop is thicker, therefore heavier, plus the added weight of bolts. XD I just liked the look of the Rotofab and the fact that I can actually fill it and I don't need a big long ugly tube that could "break." Looks and feels solid and OEM.

I didn't. It's a little tough to get in there to cut the plastic from behind the fascia but I was able to manage with a Dremel. I didn't even take my front wheel off. Worked great. I got the ADM scoop though so I don't know how much the washer bottle down there gets in the way, if any.

There are several DIY threads on installing our scoop. Removing the front fascia IS NOT REQUIRED. Some choose to do so but that is not how it is done in our instructions.
