Personally prefer companies that are flexible and at least listen to customers needs rather than outright dismissing them and just saying tough - wouldn't be that hard to make a provision for a catch can - hardly a request to reinvent the wheel.

After all, the other company listened and had a fix within a few days...

Also, love how everyone keeps saying the "ugly child" when there are no pictures or data from this intake yet - surely people are jumping the gun a bit and we need to see some side by side tests and data released first before any options are dismissed.

But anyway, choice is a good thing and I hope this works out to be another great solution for those with a ZL1 who have been waiting for this option

I'm guessing you did not read my previous post regarding catch cans. Maybe I was unclear or over complicated it, in which case I apologize. Let me put it very simply and in large print so everyone who enters this thread who apparently does not see it or understand it, can very clearly understand what I was trying to say in my previous post.

We understand people want compatibility with a CC.

We appreciate everyone's feedback and suggestions regarding compatibility with a CC.

Before we make design considerations for a CC we first want to release a CAI for the ZL1, since currently we don't have one available. Once we actually have a product for the ZL1 we will then look into other requests, which there are many, including compatibility with a CC and make our best efforts to meet demand as long as it makes sense for our business.

Thank you!!

Wow CAI, you must feel like you are having to teach a pre-school class here. Do people really not read anything you have been posting. I would think the ZL1 crowd would have a little better reading and comprehension skills than this. I understood exactly what you said in your original post regarding the CC request, and thought you answered it more than adequately.

I give you much applause for keeping your cool in the light of all this nonsense from people who obviously don't take the time to read any of your informative responses to their questions.

Too bad people don't actually take time read through a thread before they pop in for a one time post. The term wasn't even 'ugly child', and had nothing to do with looks, performance, or anything else. It was a metaphor. Then again, by looking through a few posts one could have determined that.

Actually we have been here all along since our original post, and have never went a month without posting updates. I believe that the admins deleted some pages that were un-constructive, hard to believe right.

Given the last 2 days though, I'm leaving this thread until we announce Dyno time, talk to you all soon.

Some people just gotta be nasty, guess its in their nature to be like that. Can't help em just have to learn to ignore them. Good luck with testing.

I can't believe that you hung on this long given how a lot of the people have been. Good luck with your testing and your true followers are willing to wait.

Haha - you guys in here bite WAY too easily!

Hope the Dyno tests go well though....would hate to think you've waited this long for something that isn't any better after all.....



But seriously, competition is good as is more choice for the ZL1 community

I hope I don't have to swallow my pride after this long wait. But I am confident CAI will come through.

I for one have complete faith that CAI'S intake will be well worth the wait! Perfection doesn't come overnight.....
