CAI intake with adm scoop and roto-fab WW relocater installed



Oy, that was a rather stressful install lol. The intake itself was like i dunno 5minutes to put on, the scoop and relocation kit was a nightmare though lol. Granted i'm not really all that much of a car guy, but still oy lol. Though ADM scoop install never said anything about having to cut off a welded on bolt, thank god i had my multi tool lol. Also getting the lid on the cai intake was a huge pain thanks to the roto-fab WW relocator, had the adapter, but still had to use a mallet to get it into place. And damn getting that relocator into the stupid hole lol. I dunno maybe its just me, but wasn't a quick/easy install at all lol, then again i was able to eventually get it all on, so maybe it was lol. Oh and switched to a strong MAF too.

Over all car is definitely a lot stronger and love that whoosh sound you get when the hood is open

Was going to install catch can too, but got sent the short bracket rather than long, soo gonna have to wait on that on. After thats installed going to go ahead and switch out brake pads to hawk ceramics (after i get a breaker bar, cause they did not hand tighten these bolts lol). Think after that i'll put on some trailing arms and sway bars and toe links. Wish i could do some more HP mods though without voiding the warranty :( would love to get some LT headers and tune it.

You did not have to remove that nut on the ADM scoop install. I almost started to myself.

I just put a washer on the bolt to keep the scoop from partially slipping over the (welded on) nut... the hole in the scoop is almost as big as the nut. I remember thinking about drilling the hole (in the scoop) out so that it would completely slide over the nut, but I tried the washer first and that seemed to work well.

BTW, I'm getting a dyno next weekend (Mar 31) to see the actual gains from the CAI with scoop.

CAI. Inc. develop your own vareation of the scoop, sence it works so well. But not so you have to cut the inner pannel. I think you can come up with a better design. just keep it simpel.

As far as the ability to create a scoop and the demand being there for it if we were to design one, I don't see an issue with either of those items. The problem lies in having time to design, develop, test, and put all the items in place to manufacture it with the demands being met for our ISO certification requirements. Right now we are wrapping up a GM truck/SUV system for years 07-08, right after that are doing the 09-11 GM trucks/SUV's, then a Diesel Line. As soon as that is done we have 2 other vehicle lines we want released by end of summer including the new Camaro ZL1. The simple fact is, we need to pour our time and energy into expanding our product line before we branch into accessories. Hope that explains a little better why a scoop is not top at the top of our list right now.
