The time has come to release some details of our new ZL1 system, enjoy:
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)
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 **
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.
ZL1 CAI’s are now available for purchase on our website!!!
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.**
**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**
