CAI inc install question

Got my CAI put on tonight and when it came time to put on the silicone hose I didn't because mine fit and seems to work just fine. Does this seem ok? Also I will be putting on the scoop tomorrow. I don't plan on lifting the car, so with that being said I just turn the wheels as far as I can to the right and pull back the fender liner. Anything thing else I should know or tips?

Here is a DIY w/ pictures on the scoop install: http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=257133

All of the DIY installs I have seen show the wheel being removed, I'm not certain if it can be done with it on, I've never installed a scoop.

I am however very intrigued with your hose setup... It looks like the factory hose, but it doesn't appear to be pre-formed like the others I have seen... It also looks longer??? Did you just pull out the "snap in" part that would go into the factory intake tube and jam it on the CAI tube? While I have never tried that, I was under the impression that it would not reach... As long as it seals fine, I would imagine you should be ok. Is that the factory hose, or something aftermarket? It looks nothing like what I've ever seen.

Factory hose. I used to have a K&N air charger I took off. I guess it's good then.

Also I see that I have put my lid on wrong. But I could the life of me not get it into place while trying to get the lip in place on the fender well.

After looking at all the pictures of other CAI's I saw none had a hose like mine. So I looked at my instructions for the K&N and saw that the longer hose was provided with the K&N system.

Makes sense. You should be fine with it.

You'll have a hell of a time putting that scoop on if you dont raise the car and remove the driver side wheel.

+1.. it may be possible but it may not be advantageous.

It actually wasn't that bad. I read that you needed to turn the wheels all the way to the right but that didn't work out. I cranked them all the way to the left which was enough for me to take out the torq screws and two plastic push pins. With that done I popped the wheel liner out a little and taped it to my tire. I didn't have alot of room to work with but it was enough. Got the washer bottle off easy enough and the plastic cut. Like I had read before I put the horn bolt in backwards which made it fairly easy to put in. But that big bolt was a pain. I did end up jacking the car up enough for me to slide under the front end so I could look at was what going on with the bolt. Got it all done within about 3 hours. Haven't had a chance to really "test" it out but I would imagine going from a K&N to a CAI with scoop will be quite a change. But still can't get the CAI lid into the fender like it's supposed to be.

It took some force for me to get the lid on. I pushed down on the box while my Dad pushed the lid into place...really tight fit. I was about to take the intake off and see if I installed it wrong before my Dad came to help.

Dude how in the **** did you get your scoop installed with the wheel and fender shroud in place?!! :O I had a hard enough time with the car off the ground, wheel and shroud removed, especially when it came time to cut that plastic air dam. O.o
