I was not actually at the testing, I was doing some product training for a new customer out of state. I was told by the engineer that he was unhappy with the gains, knew what needed to be done to fix it, and would let me know when it's ready to be tested. Other than that we never really got into any other details.

I think at this point it is a safe bet to say they are trying to toe the fine line between getting moderate gains without a tune. But are having a very difficult time doing that.

We had to press pause on it to wrap up a few other items. Hitting play again this week and going to start making the changes that we figured out from the last time it was on the Dyno.

This is just me, but I would think they are trying to work the numbers to the effect of keeping the same volume of air entering the intake but at a lower temp. Thus it would not require a tune.

Now if they were to increase the volume of air into the engine then I would guess it would require a tune.

I could be way off, but that's how my mind is thinking today.

I certainly hope CAI is developing the most aggressive intake they can. I've waited this long because I want the temperature reflecting properties of their intakes in addition to vast amounts of air flow. If not, this is a bust. Car has already been tuned twice, so no concern.

Just an FYI since I told you all we would keep you in the loop. We are having a ZL1 brought to us tonight (compliments of the wonderful Becky from Rodgers Chevrolet). We will be working on the prototype more this week, and I will update accordingly.
