I didn't get those either, but I don't think they are using them anymore. But honestly that big black fill part is huge and doesn't need to be use. I paid a dollar or two for a hose plug at Lowes and drilled a tiny pilot hole for a breather.Then just routed the hose to a location where it is safe. When it is time to fill, pull the plug and use a small funnel.

Well tested out my car this morning on the highway alone (most of the time). I can definitely tell the difference from my stock intake. Soon as I hit the gas it took off. The sound is much meaner I especially did it when passing the one or two cars on the highway. Along wing my LED sidemarkers and the roar I'm sure I woke them up. This was at 4am, so I'm very pleased with my latest mod.

Glad to hear that you are enjoying your new CAI from Cold Air Inductions Inc. so much! We really appreciate your business and support!

Our whole system is designed to keep the heat in the engine bay on the outside of our system as opposed to soaking thru to the intake air. That is why we ceramic coat our intake tubes and insulate our airbox. What these insulating factors do is keep the heat on the outside as opposed to soaking thru and increasing your IAT (Intake Air Temperature). So yes it is perfectly normal for the intake tube to be hot to the touch, and means our ceramic coating is doing its job. We are far more concerned with the IAT, which we can keep within 2 degrees of ambient with our insulating factors.

Let us know if you have any other questions, we are always more than happy to help!

V8 forum, so that probably isn't going to happen.

There was a separate V6 intake test but Spectre was not involved. They only tested systems if the manufacturer gave them the ok.

Not necessarily but it is not optimal. The factory radiator is designed to be mounted vertically. More importantly in your case, is that Vararam does not offer an intake for 2012+ Camaros.
