I have the ACS T3 scoop on mine and used the K&N typhoon and it seemed to be louder and a bit more peppy than others with similar set ups. Eliminate your washer bottle when your doing it because it opens up the cavity so much more and gives you all the air coming in through the scoop and travels up the wheel well.

Currently I have the fast lane pipeline intake and the intake doesn't fit the best, but the filter is right where the air comes into the scoop. Awesome synergy!

I'm sure you could. Honestly not sure what would be involved though or how much air actually goes into that little scoop. It's not a very big opening.

even with other scoops like ADM or APEX not big opening !!
but i'm thinking if i'm going to install T3 scoop mybe it'll work like others, sure i have to replace the washer tank also with other to make space for inlet..

No, the pipe line intake goes directly behind the hole, slightly to the left of the driverside scoop. Word of caution, you WILL have to tune I don't care what anyone says my car chugged all the time until I got it tuned.

Works the same way! Honestly I would go with the CAI intake and possibly scoop with washer intake along with the ACS T3 scoop, they all hit that wheel well and flow up right where the CAI filter would go. The only reason, is the fitment with the pipeline isn't the best it won't bolt up to the frame like it is supposed to unless you modify the T3 scoop and YOU WILL HAVE TO GET A TUNE! Ya my pipeline is awesome, but you could spend your money on other modifications, if you are planning a tune in the future then hey I would go with the Pipeline, if not go with the CAI. this is all from my personal experience.
