Roto-Fab CAI installed today and it's awesome

I finally installed a CAI today and absolutely love it. I right away noticed a difference in engine sound and performance not to mention I love the way it looks. Well worth it!

Took me an hour but if I had to do it again I could do it in 20-30 min.

If you've never done one before give yourself about 30-45 minutes. Once you do one you could probably do it in less than 20.

Glad to hear are happy with the intake! It's good to consistently hear positive things from those that actually have our system on their car. We use only high quality products and pay lots of attention to the little details that are usually only noticed by the installer or end user. There are lots of choices out there-thanks for going with Roto-fab!

The others are close on install time-just give yourself an hour to be sure, but you may be done in a half hour. If you have his and her Camaros sitting in the garage, the second one will go a little quicker!

Our instructions are thorough and include color pictures. Also you will not modify or remove anything to install our system. (except for the stock intake itself). Thanks for considering our products.

I originally considered getting the Hennesey CAI but that required cutting and reusing a hose but the main reason i went with Rotofab is because it was recommended by many. I saw a camaro that had 750hp and cost over $75k. It was built by a retired professional drag racer. I figured that guy knows what's good.

Looks just like mine, except I have the oiled filter. Love mine too. A little HP gain, a little better sound and really adds to the under-the-hood look. When I was researching which CAI to get, I can't remember one thing bad ever said about Roto-Fab.

Luckily for us many of our customers have stepped up with their own very positive testimonials about overall customer satisfaction as well a dyno numbers with our intake system. We appreciate all of you using our intake and other components.

Thank you! That is a sweet looking engine compartment and a very nice photo. It always makes us feel proud to see our products contribute to such a great combination.

Thanks for choosing our system. There is always much debate about intake systems, but when it comes to high horse power cars ours is often the choice of very knowledgable builders.

...and we get compliments on your engine compartment from other RJT owners. The metallac Camaro colors applied to our engine covers supply the "bling" under the hood for those that want something that stands out without adding a bunch of chrome.

I wish I had enough $$ to get those engine covers too. They would look sweet next to my roto-fab CAI. I like the IOM ones with black CAMARO lettering along with the black center cover.

I like the IOM covers too. They do look good with the black lettering and stripe. And yes, our high gloss black plenum cover really adds to the appearance. It's not necessary to add the plenum cover, but it really pops when the entire area has that shiny, high gloss look.

We did a IOM set of engine covers with cyber gray lettering and stripe-they look really awesome!

Have you signed up for our Christmas giveaway in the vendor section? It will give you a good start!

This is with a tune-check out the torque difference! Peak HP is good, but more importantly, there is a solid gain across the RPM range.

We appreciate your support and use of our products. A large percentage of our Camaro intake sales come from tuners like you that have tested our intake combined with other mods.
