CAI Help with Scoop/Washer Relocate

Yes, I tried the search function.

Okay, here is what I did today. Started with the APEX scoop. By far that took way longer than I imagined. I have a 2014 1LE and those two little vains they show in the pic to use as a cutting guide is not what I have on my car. My plastic was smooth as silk. So I had to cut multiple times until I got a good fit.

Washer bottle relocate wasn't too bad. That horn bolt is a pain! I only put 3 of the bolts in to attach the bottle because I couldn't get to the front top. No biggie, tight as can be with three.

CAI inake install easy.

Now my problem...

How did you route the aux fill tube to the washer fluid spout? I only see it possible by drilling a hole in the heat shielding.

Pics please!

Thanks,
SBG

Okay, that was my mistake. Easy fix. I mounted mine on the outside because I was trying to keep the inside as empty as I could. Plus I wanted to try and make it so I didn't have to take the lid off to fill the fluid.

Did anybody do that?

Here's my thread on my install (also in the DIY sticky list).

Look at the first PDF (specifically starting at sheet 19) to see how I made a custom mount for my remote filler neck. Just another option for those that don't want to drill into their CAI.

You can run the fill hose through the gap at the front of the CAI box. Just put some flex loom over it so that it doesn't rub on the exposed metal seams and cut into the hose. Mount the filler outside the box.

I've never had to fill mine, plus it kept the engine bay a bit cleaner.
With the cover on you can barely see it.
