My review of ADM scoop and Roto-Fab WW kit

I just installed the ADM scoop and Roto-Fab WW relocation kit! Took about 1 1/2 hours start to finish for both! Very straight forward and piece of cake for both mods!

ADM scoop: I had no instructions that came with the scoop but the FYI that ADM posted up helped and some other posts with pictures! Pretty straight forward install with the exception of the horn bolt, PITA! Got it after about 15 minutes of struggling. I used a hack saw blade to cut the plastic opening.

Roto-Fab WW relocation kit: The kit was very well packed for shipping and all parts were there. The instructions from Roto-Fab were excellent as was the quality of the product! The hardest part was getting the reservoir bottle to snap into the grommet. Also being black in color it was hard to see the fluid as I filled it and it overflowed My fault though not enough light to work with! I like the pump mount and hose routing and general fit and finish of the kit!

Overall I give both products 2 thumbs up! Now I can't wait to get the car out of hibernation once the snow thaws to try it out!

Very Nice.

That's definately the most factory looking setup out there.

Cool! Looks like you didn't waste much time in getting your install complete. I agree, aligning the stud with the grommet is the toughest part since it is done in an area where you can't see. For Roto-fab guys it is easy to see with the air box out.
FYI, our air box will go straight in and out with the reservoir in place.

Thanks for all your comments! I can't wait to get the car out on the road soon as the weather breaks! I've added the VMax CNC TB and Rx Catch can as well so I'm eager to see how it all works together! Nice Job Mike on another quality product from Roto-Fab!

I have an ADM Scoop waiting to be installed. Mine did come with a nice write up. I also have a Rx Can but I installed it where the roto W/W goes. SO now I have to get some more hose to put it in another location.

Look great.

Here's my thoughts and some pictures on my install from this weekend:

The fit and finish on both the washer bottle and the scoop are excellent. The washer bottle went in easy and the pump is secured in a great spot. Roto-Fab's attention to detail makes this install pretty much idiot proof. I did end up using a few more zip-ties to secure everything, but I am anal.

The scoop was relatively easy to install and as many have said previously, the hardest part was cutting off the plastic shield. My scoop was supplied with a longer 6mm horn bolt and an extra nut, which made it easy to get the tab secured. Many of the install pictures I have seen have shown the scoop tab on the other side of the horn bolt nut, which would be very difficult to secure. Make sure that you get a bolt and nut with your kit or buy one prior to the installation.

I have driven the car a bit since the install and I will say that it is hard for me to tell what kind of peak horsepower this mod picked up. 5-6 HP on a 450 HP car is almost negligeable and would probably only show up on a dyno. What I can tell is that the powerband on the lower end is much smoother. Before this mod and with my cam, the car would tend to really wake up at around 2.5k to 3k and give you a swift kick in the pants. Now the power transition from the lower RPM ranges to that magical RPM range is much smoother. For me, this mod seemed to help the low end a lot and that was just what I was looking for. I'll be heading back to ADM sometime soon, and when I do, I'll re-dyno and post more additional thoughts.

On to the pictures (please excuse the poor iPhone pictures):

This is a picture with just the scoop installed. You can see how I was able to secure the tab using the supplied bolt and nut.



A couple pictures of the pump installed with the scoop:





A view of the filter area sans washer reservoir:



A view looking down into the filter area. You can see the pump, the scoop, and how much more room there is for air to get to the intake.



A few pictures of the final overall product. It looks OEM and I am extremely happy! Thanks ADM and Roto-Fab!

That scoop looks awfully close to the wheel?! Think a lowerd car would have any issues with the location of the scoop?

My car is lowered and I think what you are seeing is where the scoop gets close to the fender well liner. It in no way will come into contact with the wheel.

That is a VERY nice looking engine compartment. What do you have going there for plug wires, coils and valve covers?

Thanks Doc. The valve covers are by Katech and so is the coil relcation kit. I custom designed the valve cover inserts (the part that says "camaro ss") and the plug wires came with the kit. Hope this helps.
