Installed my Roto-Fab today!

After researching the CAI's on here, I decided to go with Roto-Fab. They were great on the phone and answered all my questions. I paid on Friday and package arrived Tuesday (even with the monday holiday).

I got it out and put it in, was easy. I went to shut the hood and it was too high. There is a plastic piece on the CAI that fits into existing grommet on your car. I thought this was all the way in, but it was not....so this error was my fault.

This little bugger is a tight fit so here is a tip I learned along time ago. Put a drop of dishwashing liquid on your fingers and rub it in on the plastic piece....presto it fit right it.

Assembly was a snap and if it wasnt for my stupid error i would have been done in about 25 mins.

I recommend them for their ease of use and customer service. Here is a pic of my finished product. Sorry but the engine cover is off being painted as we speak. Should be back tomorrow so maybe more pics then.

This will be my next mod. Waiting for their tax sale.

Looks good without the engine cover. I ditched mine, including the heat shield and support bracket.

It was 45 and sunny today, so I did the install.




I took it out on the highway and pushed it a little. It great!

I didn't notice a whine either as is the case with a lot of CAI's. I prefer it that way. I put a CAI on my wife's Mustang and it always had a whine when accelerating, which I didn't like.

guys look, I have installed this an have been 100% happy with them. I had a question on installation and called them and guess what....I spoke to a human, and someone who could answer my question.

the quality is great, results are great, look is great, customer service is great.....can't say much more than that.

so if you are looking for a reason to buy from them, take my testimonial into account

Here is a dyno sheet comparing our intake to the stock intake. One very important thing is our intake shows good gains over a wide RPM range, not just a good peak number at an RPM level you will seldom reach.
