WOW - this took a nasty turn

I for one am most anxious to see the final
product I've got a vested interest

It's a great product and I want all my cars to
have the same system!!

A. You obviously didn't read CAI INC'S response, because what that guy said was not true at all. They made pretty clear that they don't have a stance on catch cans and they never told people otherwise, they simply have not yet designed a CAI with a CC in mind. That would be putting the cart before the horse since they have not even released their ZL1 CAI yet. Rather than just quoting and commenting some guy before you why don't you take the time to actually read the manufacturers response.

B. Plastic mold injection is an entirely different process and has very different design constraints. I don't think they are viewing this as a race, and if anything I would be glad that they are more concerned with putting out a quality product than being the first here to sell something. Who said being first means its the best product?

C. If you already bought a CAI, that's great, why are you in this thread commenting their CAI and how long they have taken. I hope you love your
CAI and that it makes you very happy, but the only thing you are doing coming here is causing negativity for a product that you already know you are not buying, what exactly are you trying to accomplish here?


Go into a roto-fab thread and praise there product as opposed to coming in another manufacturers thread in attempt to bash theirs, that accomplishes nothing.
Here because it's a discussion board. We are consumers discussing products, I bought one because it was available and came with the necessary fitments for a catch can.

Good. Sounds like you are all set. I have a single catch can and am awaiting the testing results from CAI to see what direction I want to go in there. So everyone's happy.

I can't wait to see/order your system. I loved the look of your system on my SS and it also helped with throttle response. Hoping that you have your system out soon for the ZL1!

So you wanted to buy a CAI but due to the fact it was not ready you went with Roto-Fab, or you just bought the one that was ready earlier? I wanted to go with the Roto because it was ready early but liked the look of CAI better so decided to wait.

I liked the look of the rot fab/read great reviews/saw decent power gains without a tune. And it was available to purchase. And I am adding a dual check catch can. It is what it is..

LMAO! CAI isnt even in the catch can business... Go buy a rotofab. I'd be embarrassed to have someone this retarded driving around with a CAI intake anyway.


Hey CAI I won't buy your intake unless I can use it on a jet powered go-kart that runs on kerosene. Please make it do this.

Judging by your response, the quote in your signature about knowledge and wisdom, and the comment next to your Honda in your signature about "still looking like a tool when driving it", I think we have the same sense of humor, and I like your style. Thanks for making my afternoon a little better, all of those things I just mentioned made me literally lol. Oh and btw love the avatar pic, Hangover 3 comes out tomorrow baby!!!!

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.

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
