Great tip. It is pretty tight in there. We appreciate your business and the feed back.

The pricing will be identical to what is listed above. Here is a link to the V6 CAI and the black V6 CAI. Here is another link to the scoop and washer tank relocation kit.

Ordered it Sunday, got it Tuesday, now just gotta wait for my car to get home from the body shop. I never had a filter like that before; I read the cleaning instructions but is there a video on how to clean it and re-oil anywhere? The instructions said what kind of oil to use and said not to use too much, how much is too much? What kind of brush do you clean the inside with? I just don't understand the instructions.

CAI intake systems use S&B air filters. Here is a link to their FAQ page. It has the answers to your questions as well as links to those products.

Im wondering if the design changed, I was a little worried about this part but had no issues at all. Did you put the bolt through after putting the scoop in place? I put the bolt in, tighted it, then put the scoop in place as per instructions. There was plenty of room for a ratchet and socket?

Also some have mentioned placing the water bottle as far right as possible so it dont hit your drl's, the new scoop I got from apex was predrilled so that is no longer an issue.

It appears that there was. Paul and Nathan encountered both configurations while the kit was being developed. One is super easy with plenty of room to install and the other requires a little more effort.

Well I finally got around to ordering the bundle with the black CAI today (my gun hobby has been taking up most of my money). I can't wait until it gets here.

Thank you for your order. I can relate. I just finished an AR-15 build. Well, they are never really finished are they? I still have a couple of odds and ends to wrap up but it is fully functional. Now I just need time to make it to the range and zero the BUIS and EoTech.

That's just what I finished building myself lol. Mine was a 6.5 Grendel on the AR-15 platform. Took me 3 months and over $2,000 to get set up the way I want it.

Mine was a 5.56 for about the same money. LMT lower, BCM upper and bolt carrier group, lots of other goodies. I think I am going to do a 308 AR next.

Nice.

Looks like I'm not the only one with BGD (Black Gun Disease).

If your thinking about doing a 7.62 build then I would recommend looking at the Grendel. The Grendel has almost the same ballistics as the 7.62 at short range and better ballistics past 300 yards. It's the same overall length as the 5.56 so it fits in the AR-15 platform instead of the AR-10 platform the 7.62 requires. AR-10 parts are more expansive and seems to be harder to get and less to choose from.

If you may be interested head over to http://www.65grendel.com/forum/forum.php and look around. Bill Alexander who developed the Grendel round is fairly active on the forums as well as other manufacturers who specialize in the Grendel round.

P.S sorry for derailing the thread.

No worries, it will get back on track eventually. Thanks for the link and the recommendation. I guess I should have said I am looking to build something that will be effective beyond 500m. I default to saying 308/7.62. An old Army buddy of mine built a 338 Lapua that he is really happy with but he is in Alaska so I haven't had a chance to give it a try. I like the idea of the Grendal being on the AR15 platform. I will have to check it out.
