LOL!!! My wife thought my 07 camary had too much power. Im still in the 1500 mile break in period on my 2012 ZL1 so I haven't tested it yet. I'm itching to step on it and see what it can do.

I don't know how you can resist not going for one highway blast.

I installed the roto fab no tune intake and love it my average mpg just went down.

Damn Rotofab, they tell you $400, but they don't tell you about increased gas cost and speeding tickets

is the old standard algebra equation for me.

(horsepower) H = (lenght) L + G (girth) - DL (drivers licence)

That's Funny! They don't mention how much faster the tires wear down/out either!

The gas cost the same , but you just use more
They are right on the money about the $400 .

HUH?! Really? I have more power everywhere. Less from a stop, huh?

Bad gas? Was a fuse pull required to reset fuel tables? Maybe that would help? Wierd.

I just read down through this thread, something caught my eye, and I just would have liked to quote it and say "are you an idiot." Then I thought, "what do you drive?" It made sense then.

...you bet! It takes traction loss to another level....haha.... Wheel spin and shift chirps are more pronounced and unpredicatble. I was amazed. The first word to come to mind was rediculous. The blower whine is insane. It's wicked crazy. I had the biggest grin from ear to ear at WOT. Best bang for the buck you can do no doubt.

Mine should ship in this week! I'm more excited than a ten year old on Christmas morning! Can't wait to "supervise" my husband doing the install.

I'm glad you are enjoying it! I appreciate your business and support! Just curious, did you get to try the Intake system separate from the Big gulp? or did you install them both together?

Best regards,

Tyler

Forgot to post a pic. Also really like the way they put their "Roto-Fab" logo in gray, the one inside the box, to match the car, AGM, and included an extra red one which my husband stuck near the hood latch.

Super easy mod. The instructions are excellent and I watched the install video while doing it step by step. Plus the OEM CAI fits in the box perfectly. Didn't install the "T" because I don't have my RX Catch Can yet, but its easy enough to switch out when I do the that install. I guess I could've and just plugged the one open end. Sounded great on the hiway when I (husband) opened her up!
