There is a plastic "stalk" (it is non-functional) on the pump that you may have to trim off. You just take a pair of snips or scissors and clip it off. It helps the pump fit better in the tank but some find that trimming it isn't necessary.

The construction and fit on the Apex scoop is outstanding! The one piece design seems like a no brainer.
And I can definitely feel the car pulling harder on acceleration. It seems to have made a big difference combined with the CAI Intake setup.

Also, I DID NOT have to cut the washer pump stalk. On my setup the stalk resides on the outside of the tank from where the pump clips in.

Anyway another for Apex.

I installed this kit and it is everything advertised. Nice quality and fairly straightforward install. Having the stock washer bottle inside your CAI is counter productive

For full disclosure purposes, I later had to murder the scoop when I installed a ZL-1 front end. The scoop became essentially a mounting bracket for the bottle...but all does work/fit still

Thanks for the feed back. By "murder the scoop" do you mean that you had to modify it?

I get a little more pickup at freeway speeds, thats where it helps, and maybe around town just to help the cooler air get to the filter easier I would think.

This thread and plenty of other threads like it are full of people who actually have one on their car and would disagree with said sponsors. Below is one of my favorites.

Whoosh!


And a few quotes from members here on Camaro5.

Car pulls much harder now, and sounds different too...

So I definitely recommend it!

My butt Dyno definatly feels and hears a big difference compared to just the CAI....definatly recommend the scoop. One of the best cost to performance ratio's Ive done so far to my Camaro.

Sound has improved! and throttle response is smooth and shifts cleans. I recommend the Scoop WW kit and CAI to anyone.. got mines from Chase at APEX-great guy to to business with!

I would like to say APEX has super fast shipping, I placed my order on Friday evening and received it on Wednesday.

It's a cheap enough mod that can't hurt so worth a try. I'm doing the scoop, washer relocation and Vmax next. That should take care of the front end before I get my headers and tune.

I love the Rotofab washer bottle. It sits in the perfect position right outside my CAI intake. Not sure if the race scoop really does much or is just a marketing gimmick, but it's kind of neat to feel like it helps increase cold air flow anyway. :P

You probably could but our legal counsel has advised us to discourage such an act.

Vmax is next on my list. And that will about do it until I can grab a cam.

Well got my washer bottle, scoop and strong maf installed today.

Got a little creative on the scoop lol








I guess I feel it on the butt dyno a little bit. I'm going to the track on Friday for the super chevy show. We will see if there are any gains to show at the track.

Alright well I hit the track last weekend with the new scoop and washer bottle...I was able to cut a new personal best time and MPH and it was in dreadful heat (and I mean 3 tents and 6 mph faster). The only new mods are wider tires, TSW Nurbergrings, and the scoop/bottle/strong maf. Now I know he tires aren't helping because my 60' still sucks haha. But the light weight wheels and the scoop definitely helped in the top end. Car felt like it pulled a lot stronger. And like I said, it was 92 degrees out.
