DIY: Washer Bag Installation for ADM Race Intake

hello boys and girls, Ryan here with another do-it-yourself camaro mod!

all i did with this one was replace the stock washer bottle with a washer bag, so that the ADM race intake and scoop could be installed!

on the other forum, someone has a DIY on how to install one of these, and it turned out to be a fairly easy mod! all i did was drill 2 holes, connect 2 wires, plug the hose in and fill the bag up!

if you notice, i installed it inside the heat shield, making it completely hidden, and the only thing restricting the air now are those little wires

i don't drive the car daily, and i have used the washer fluid maybe twice in the 6000 miles on the car, so the little bag is plenty and the fluid inside will last at least a year. so now i have an excuse to inspect my filter everytime i run out

enough typing, here are some pics:




SOMEBODY PLEASE CLEAN MY ENGINE BAY... AAAAHHHHHH!!!!

Good to know now what my Cold Air intake will look like under the hood.

Now are you glad you bought that windshield washer bag rather than deleting the bottle all together like most do with that CAI ? Told you it would look good


I will give you Credit on the cool place you decided to place the bag but im taking credit for telling you to go with it


Looks good man you did a Dam good job



btw when you go to the track remove that dam engine Cover what are you trying to do keep it nice and cozy and warm ? you can always put it back on when you leave if you must have it.

i drove it around my parking lot. it is less noisy than the LMR intake, and feels a little more solid. probably picked up a good 5-10 hp at speed

they sure made it a tight fit and it seals up really tight!

i take the engine cover off when i go to the drag strip, and i'll take it off before running on the dyno this saturday, that's for sure!

i just leave it on there during normal driving so it doesn't go missing in my cluttered garage!

thinking about getting that roto-fab engine cover

Please tell me that's not excess filter oil drips I see on the bottom of it in the second picture!! If so, i would highly recommend blotting the filter to remove the excess.

Hot **** RJ, you are a mod machine! That bag looks clean being hidden inside the box. And no heat-soak for your blue fluid!

you guys are funny.

when i looked under the hood with the bag, i tried putting it by the firewall like others, but i would have had to get longer wires for the connection and no good place to mount it. so i started looking, and thought, "HEY! i can put it right there where the original bottle was, but this one won't be in the way"

Nice job RedJewel. I have the ADM street intake and was thinking about converting to the ADM race. Your set-up keeps everything nice and clean. On a side note, did you do any data logging to see what your intake air temps are in relation to ambient air temps? With the street intake and in cold weather my IAT's were 2-3 degrees higher than ambient. Earlier this week air temps were in the 90's and IAT's were 4-6 degrees while cruising at 70 MPH but started to really climb at a standstill.
