Correct. If you have trouble getting the scoop in place you may need to remove slightly more plastic than the instructions say to.

Chase you have a PM....I don't have to install the washer bottle right? if I don't the scoop works just as well, and the only downside is on the CAI, I have to remove the plex plate top to fill, correct?

Your stock washer tank has to be removed to install the scoop. If you do not use the washer tank kit you will not have use of your windshield washers.

yeah but I'm not one to do much analyzing of how much more it gets...it feels about the same to me - I did it because I like mods and I knew it was what the CAI needed as the stock washer bottle is blocking everything. Kit was easy and instructions good.

I just went thru two days of 2 inches of rain a day - I wonder if the scoop sends water up and soaks the filter? Does the filter catch he water if it does?

There is no additional risk of water ingestion with the scoop. In order for water to get to the air box it would have to enter the scoop, negotiate a 45 degree corner, make a 90 degree turn upward, and then climb about 12 inches vertically. While the scoop does direct additional cool dense air flow into the intake it does not create a vacuum capable of doing all that. Water vapor condenses against the back wall of the scoop and is drained through weep holes in the bottom rear corners. The only way I can see forcing enough water into the intake to hydro lock it would be for you to hit standing water at least as deep as the fog lights and with a bit of speed. And if you do that you are going to have plenty of other problems too.

You can see one of the weep holes in the bottom rear corner. There is another just across from it but it is concealed by the near side wall in that photo.

It attaches to the car just below the air box. It sits directly under the filter.

The whole bumper slides off with about 12 bolts in 20 minutes...personally, I would never do this mod without taking the front end off, it's so easy and allows you to do a better job with cutting and routing.......my install here

Removing the bumper cover is easy but it is not required to install the scoop. Our instructions do not call for it to be removed but it does allow for easier access.

They are oiled. Oiled filters are pretty much the standard for performance applications.

Is anyone using the Injen Long Tube intake like this one?

If so, what are your impressions/observations? I was using the v6 version of this on my LS, and it seemed to work really well.

Any info at all will be appreciated.
