Roto-Fab Cold Air Intake Installation Video

Ok guys and gals. Several of you have asked us about doing an install video, so we put one together over the weekend. We tried to keep it as informational as possible, while keeping it "short, sweet and to the point". Enjoy!!

Very well done. At least I know Mine is installed correct. Mine also came with the 'T' fitting for the catch can, he should have mentioned that.

Very nice! Thanks for taking the time to do this guys!

Best regards,

Very well done from start to finish. Now I'm much more confident on attempting the install myself. I really needed this video being a novice, and I found it a big help. Thank you.

Good point, I ordered a dual check valve catch can, and I'm glad to hear the T fitting is included.

Thank's guys for making it easy

Does the filter element come pre oiled or is it run dry? Thanks for this video. Exactly what I was hoping for before I tackle my install. It was great to see the dreaded breather tube process done as many have have trouble with breaking it

Very nice, well done rotofab

well you sold me. Very well done. Thank you

charlietuna 04-30-2013 06:42 PM

thanks for that...... I've had my Roto-Fab for several weeks now and have not installed it yet (waiting for a base dyno pull next week) this will be extremly helpful.

MODS STICKY PLEASE !!!!

Awesome. Great product.

Never have I seen an aftermarket company do so much for its enthusiast. Well done!

Thanks for the video Jeremiah! :w00t:

OC ZL1 04-30-2013 10:18 PM

Excellent video! This mod is on my list. :popcorn:

IcePick06 04-30-2013 10:39 PM

I thought the photo instructions that came with my RotoFab intake were great but this video would've been even better...now there is no excuse to get this mod if you're on the fence :D

Thanks again for giving me the idea of using electrical tape to seal and re-attach the top of my breather tube after it broke off while removing it from the stock intake; it's very thin plastic and it happened to a few other owners too I heard. But everything seems to be working fine now about 1000 miles so far with the mod and zero issues :thumbsup:

joes407 05-01-2013 07:25 AM

lol, great video but mine did not go in nearly that simple. in fact i had to remove the filter and put it on last as i needed the extra space to get the box in. also my negative cable was so short/tight that it would barley reach around the intake box. fyi, the entire intake does not need to be removed to change the filter either as it says in the instructions. one small detail that bothered me was that mine came pre-stickered in silver so right away i had to remove the sticker to put on the red ones which left me none for my toolbox :( ive put a bunch of these on friends SS's and mine went in the hardest. very happy they included the fitting for the rx catch can though so i didnt have to drill. still happy with the finished product and also noticed 2 mpg gain on highway as long as i stayed 70 mph or lower, above 70 mileage went back to normal.

The filter comes pre oiled.

Great video, but the included instructions ARE straight forward. I don't know how anybody could screw it up. 45-60 minute install tops. Good job Roto-Fab! :happyanim:

Very infomative. Geting ready to do mine this week. Can you tell me the order of install with the WW reservoir relocation, CAI, and the big gulp? I think somebody on the thread had said he might do it differently if doing it again. looked easy though.

A few have said the reservoir is easier to engage the bottom mounting grommet with the factory intake removed and the Roto-fab not yet installed. If you go this route, install the tank, but don't route the tank outlet hose to the pump until after you have installed the air box as the line will run along the bottom of the air box, then drop down to the pump.

The WW pump itself may be easier to mount before installing the Big Gulp.

Another thing to keep in mind during the process- iif you have the stock WW reservoir completely out of the way before installing the Roto-fab, you have the possibility of damaging the pleates of the filter with the neck of the WW reservoir during removal.

Aside from these minor points, I don't think the install order really is too important. If you have any pointers after doing yours, please share them as you certainly arent' the first to ask.:thumb:

I know lots of folks have purchased the Roto Fab CAI. I'm getting closer to putting in my order, but does it really increase power? I've read an increase of approx 20/22 HP. And does that increase affect the exhaust sound. Faster and louder, that gets a sale from me. I don't want anything that effects my warranty so this intake sounds like a good deal. Any feedback is truly appreciated. The longer you've had it installed the better, really like to hear your opinion.

There is a great gain to be had with this system. Here is a dyno sheet from a bone stock ZL1 overlapped with another run 30 minutes apart after installation of the Roto-Fab intake system. Keep in mind this dyno was done with the hood up, but I would expect similar gains coupled with the Big Gulp at freeway speeds.

Are you serious or joking around? You post here everyday as do I and I know you have read the numerous praises for the Roto-Fab intake? You have seen the same before and after charts? Just buy the damn thing already, how many posts have you read that are titled, "I removed my Roto-Fab because it didn't do exactly what the others have said"? ;)

Are your kids using the computer again? Password protect it just in case.:biggrin:

Normagene 05-03-2013 07:04 PM

So do suggest going all the way. Big Gulp, Reservoir kit, and CAI? I at least got the catch can finally ordered!

OldScoolCamaro 05-03-2013 08:07 PM

...ordered a Roto-Fab ZL1 CAI from Phastek yesterday....sounds like this is the ticket by all accounts, can't wait to get it on....figuratively,...and literally...;)
