Finally installed my ROTO-FAB CAI.

Thanks to Phastek Performance for the great price and seamless transaction!

I spent a couple of hours last night installing my ROTO-FAB CAI. (So my wife signed off on my purchase of the ZL1 because I told her I was paranoid about all the engine work I did to my 2011 GT Mustang and the fact that I had definitely voided my warranty. I justified buying either the ZL1 or the GT500 buy saying I would have everything I needed and wouldn't need to do anything that would void the warranty...)

Well, thanks to ROTO-FAB for this awesome CAI! And I got my fix for doing even a small amount of modding... I love the sound and appreciate any performance it may have added. I love the way it looks too. Very nice!

Look. If the mod bug hits you and you want your warranty, a few appearance mods and fuzzy dice go a long way....


....plus the SLP headers and download tune installed at rhe dealer don't void your warranty.


But it was kind of fun installing the Rotofab wasn't it

Thanks for the comments...

When ever possible I try to keep the engine bay looking factory. Of course anyone that knows their way around the LSA will see the mods but try not to bring attention to them.

I was asked which black paint I used for the Moroso catch can. It was a Krylon product. Paint and primer combo. Goes on well. I let it dry for a couple of days between coats and then a couple of days before the install.

What is most important is the prep. I reduced enamel reducer to wipe down the unit but most folks don't have that laying around. I would use isopropyl alcohol instead. I installed the two barbs with teflon tape prior to painting and masked off where the hoses go over the barb. The bottom hole was plugged with the right angle barb that was masked as well.

Got it at Walmart for about $5.

Hope this helps.

Rob

I love it. In another thread someone said put away an extra $20 per week for gas... No kidding. Turning down the stereo and accelerating.

hello RTG I noticed that your clean air intake canister looks dangerously close to rubbing on the pulley.. you can re-route like mine.. here's a pic; mine has a nice clearance away from the pulley.

Thanks for pointing this out.

It looks close in the picture but around 3/4" to 1" away. Should be OK unless it moves around.

I did mine as well, finally! How and where did you guys route the ground cable around the box to the stud? Mine seems to be very tight going around the air box and the fender. I can see where in time the edge of the box would cut the insulation on the cable. Any suggestions from RotoFab installers would be appreciated.

See if you can pull a little more slack thru the black tie down near the battery +(red) port. I got about another inch.

Take a look at the instructions for the Lingenfelter system. They run it under the seal where there is already a dip in the body that creates a lower pressure spot in the seal. That's where I ran mine. Lingenfelter's box is made by RotoFab.

They also remove the ground stud and change it for a bolt. They get rid of the clean air canister too.
