Damn dude, I can almost guarantee you that with CAI intakes it will definitely be worth the wait, all of their intakes are top notch!

Wouldn't you rather have an intake that will gain you max power without a tune, rather than an intake that will gain you minimal power with or without a tune?

I think it will be worth the wait, just be patient.
I can understand his frustration, there is already a company that has built a CAI for the ZL1 which does not require a tune and has been shown to give you a 25-30rwhp bump. Your right CAI does build great products, but they are losing market share the longer they take.

A few things have delayed this launch to longer than we originally anticipated. We were out of power due to the backlash of the storms for nearly 5 days, the part we are waiting on has taken longer than expected, our original prototype part arrived incorrect and we had to re-make the tooling which takes time, and we are busy with normal production and other important items to keep this company operating smoothly. Unfortuantely the ZL1 is not our only priority right now, its at the top of the list but right now we are waiting on suppliers and can't do anything more until we get parts.

Bottom line, we are working as fast as we can, are waiting on parts to arrive which should be here soon, and we apologize for the delay. I understand many of you are patiently waiting for this intake, which we appreciate and want to fullfill as soon as possible, obviously we don't want to lose interest. As soon as the part comes in, if everything tests as we believe it will, we will be putting the car on the Dyno to confirm performance results and we will notify you of the pre-order option that so many of you have been requesting.

We should be really close now, thanks for your patience and cooperation.

Some ZL1 owners are not as loyal as I am to CAI but yall need to hurry up bc I believe you have already lost hundreds of orders to rotofab. I will wait for CAI, but some wont.

I'm trying to wait to see what CAI gain numbers are, but 5 months have passed from the start of this thread til now. I am highly considering the roto-fab one at this point because I just want an intake.

We should have something in terms of numbers very soon. Obviously we can't make you wait longer than you choose to, and we definitely appreciate you waiting up until this point, this system has taken much longer than we anticipated. I am hoping to have the part very soon and as soon as it comes we will be putting it on the ZL1. Obviously everyday we don't have it we are losing money, so it is our #1 goal to bring it to market as soon as possible.

I would wait til hell freezes over for the CAI unit if I had a ZL1. The fit, finish, appearance and performance will all be excellent. I am generally very loyal to "my" products, but can be swayed if availability is not forthcoming, in the CAI case, I would be waiting.

I'll be waiting to see how yours does. I do like the look of yours being totally enclosed better, just my 2 cents. I don't plan on doing anything until Natasha comes out from her hibernation. So I can wait. I would rather you take your time and do it right then hurry and not get it perfect. So at least for me take your time I'll be here.
