Cold Air Inductions Inc. ZL1 CAI
 
**7-30-13 UPDATE**

The time has come to release some details of our new ZL1 system, enjoy:

System Details:


First off let me just say that this system has been completely re-designed from any other Camaro CAI we offer. Every component from the TB to the filter was engineered specifically for this vehicle, tested, and proven. The most important design feature of this system, and the piece that is where much of our time has been spent, is the billet MAF housing which is deigned not only as the transition piece from the coupler into the air filter, but also serves as a velocity stack to ensure that the airflow properties are exactly where they need to be to make power, reduce restriction, and stay within the vehicles fuel trim parameters so that a CEL is not thrown. This piece is nearly the size of a softball, and is cut from one solid piece of aluminum, and it allows the MAF sensor to be plugged right into it. The filter is the largest filter we could fit given the space inside the airbox and the angle at which the filter sits in the airbox cavity. Due to the insulated and sealed airbox, the thermal coated billet MAF housing/velocity stack, and the use of a silicone coupler coming off of the TB, heat soak is greatly reduced.

Part# 501-1099-10-Z (Near Chrome Finish)
Part# 501-1099-10-ZB (Textured Black Finish)

Performance: :headbang:

Average HP gain over stock + 19 RWHP
Average TQ gain over stock + 20 FT-LB TQ

Max HP gain over stock + 19 RWHP
Max TQ gain over stock + 21 FT-LB TQ

** These gains were on an otherwise stock ZL1, with the only change made being the CAI. There was no tuning done on this vehicle, and no CEL’s were thrown. Fuel trims looked very good and full pound of boost was gained. We actually seen some higher gains HP on a few pulls, some as high as 24 rwhp, but the 19 rwhp we are claiming should easily be seen should you choose to Dyno the car yourself after installing the CAI **

Price:

Due to posting rules we cannot list the price in a non-advertisement section of the forum, but product details, pricing, and ordering are all available at the following link: http://www.coldairinductions.com/store/cold-air-intakes/chevrolet/camaro/6-2l-zl1-supercharged/2013?___SID=U

Available in our standard “Near Chrome” or “Textured Black” powder coated finishes.

**We are looking into a carbon fiber option as well. The details for a Carbon Fiber finish are completely up in the air right now, I know it would add cost (speculating around $30-$50) and we don’t even know for sure if it’s going to be an option.

Availability:

ZL1 CAI’s are now available for purchase on our website!!! :happyanim:

Shipping will be 6-8 weeks from time of order or from 8-1-13.

**We are really pushing ourselves as well as suppliers to have this system available and ready to ship out in 6 weeks, but wanted to leave ourselves a little window for delays, hence the 8 weeks.**

Pictures:

**NEAR CHROME PICTURES TO BE ADDED AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, WE DID NOT HAVE THE TIME AT THE FEST TO INSTALL BOTH COLOR OPTIONS SINCE THE CAR WAS NEEDED OTHER PLACES, WE ONLY HAD IT FOR A SHORT AMOUNT OF TIME, AND WITH BEING OUTSIDE AND THE SUN BLARING IT WAS DIFFICULT TO GET REAL GOOD SHOTS. THANKS AGAIN BECKY FOR HELPING US OUT!!**

**Here is the MAF housing w/ built in velocity stack. This is made in house and is where much of the time testing and tweaking was spent to ensure to best readings were available to the MAF to ensure the most gains while staying within the parameters of the vehicles computer so that a CEL is not thrown and no tuning is required. THE PHOTO SHOWS THE NEAR CHROME VERSION, THIS PIECE WAS A TESTING PIECE SO THE WELDS ARE NOT EXACTLY "PRODUCTION" SPEC**

A red air box to match the engine cover would look great, just a suggestion.

Sales @ CAI Inc 02-28-2012 06:57 PM

Deke736 03-01-2012 08:37 AM

I want one but am not willing to give my car up for testing. Should I still fill one out? A carbon fiber intake would be nice and match the heat extractor.

Yes you should, we will not need your car for testing, we already have that covered.

Have one on my current SS and will be getting one on the ZL1 (providing there are proven gains above the stock setup)

zlonce 03-02-2012 04:41 PM

Does anyone know if you can track a ZL1 if you have a GM order number?

I think the product is great and I would love to install one on my ZL1

Not getting a Z, just turning my SS in to one.. heh.

Bumping as an owner of a CAI intake. They are definitely a very nice piece. I get compliments on mine all the time.

Yes I'm very interested in the development of a cai for the ZL1, I think the development of CAI. Incs. development of your own scoop for the cai without cutting up the inner pannels, would complement the cai unit. After the cai shootout, and how well CAI. Inc. did with the ADM. scoop I think CAI. could come up with a better design to enhance an already great product.

Thanks for your support. If you are definitely going to want a CAI for the ZL1 make sure to fill out the form on our website. As for a scoop, unfortunately our development schedule is just far to dense for us to squeeze in any time for a scoop. I know we could do a great one, but the time for it is just not there right now.

OVRKLL 03-22-2012 09:09 PM

Submitted...but I don't even have a ZL1 on order YET!!
However, when...and not if, I get mine I would definitely be interested in a CAI for the ZL1.

I even submitted for a car you don't have listed...I hope you have one though.

Hi All,

I just placed my order for the CAI for my 2LS 2012 after reading all the positive feedback I am looking forward to its arrival, So 1 question does it make a difference? this is the 1st upgrade I have done besides tinting the windows I also went to camarocollection.com and just ordered inferno orange knobs and kick plates so to say the least i'm excited for all its arrival. Cant wait.....
Thanks

Hey Bill,
Any progress on a new and/or retrofit kit for the ZL1?
...I'd like to use my LS3 CAI, Inc. box.

Sean Summers 11-25-2012 06:41 PM

Had a CAI airbox on my SS and just traded it in on the ZL1. How will the new box be designated on the site differently from the Camaro 6.2L?

Sales @ CAI Inc 11-28-2012 09:57 AM

Sending off the CAI for some 3rd party testing in a day or two!! As soon as we get some results we should be able to start offering the pre-order option that so many of you have been asking for! More information coming as soon as the testing is complete!
