Show a pic with the scoop if possible. I would like to see how that's set up. Did you have to make any adjustment to the front bumper to accommodate the scoop. I'm thinking of the scoop as well just wanted to know the "all's" before making that purchase. Thxs ! The CAI looks nice btw !!!

I'm getting my new Heritage grill on Tues or Weds, so I'll try to get a pic of the scoop when I install it later in the week, other than relocating the windshield washer res. the only thing u do is cut a small piece of the plastic that's behind the lower grill. Not too bad of a install just a little patience.(Had a small problem taking the nut off the horn, it stripped) I would recommend getting it!!!

I'm too lazy to look for the thread, but there is a documented-with-pictures install out there somewhere.

Doesn't look too hard at all.

Thank you both for your business and feedback. Glad to see you are both enjoying it. We had A LOT of people pick up this package at Camaro5Fest this weekend.

Correct, it looks like on the drivers side the lid is resting on top of the lip rather then underneath and in the middle. Other than that looks great!!

Thank you for choosing Cold Air Inductions Inc.!

Thanks,

The system shows that it was sent but it wouldn't be the first time one of those emails was lost in the interwebs. PM on the way.

Four minutes from the time I asked until you responded with a tracking number. That's service, Man. Now go home!
