I think I'm going to wait on my order just a little bit to include the new big gulp to install everything at one time.

Ah, pull up and it's off! Wanted to make sure I did not break it. Will reinstall the stock air box as is for trips to the dealer.

For others, a quick pull straight upwards does the trick. If it isn't pulled straight up, the threads grab much more.

Hey Rotofab guys. I installed mine this morning and then drove it 700 miles. No Cels and 1 more MPG. On the way to Goodguys southwest nationals to run in the autocross. Love the yellow sticker and hoses. I will post pics tomorrow too tired tonight.

Do you think we would have to switch it back to the stock air box take the car in for service?

Based on what I have done to my SS, I would say no.

If you have any doubts 'rpepka', talk to the Service Folks that would take care of your ZL1's maintenance. I did and he said "bolt-on's" are not a problem...just don't get into the guts or tuning. I then shot them an email thanking them for their stellar customer service capturing what we've talked about and bammm--I got it in writing

FYI, the Big Gulp will also have a feature to prevent water intrusion.
How does the roto fab make so we can hear the blower whine? If the top is sealed where do we get the extra sound from?

The stock box acts as a muffler/restrictor

After looking, yes that would cut the sound. I like the sound so I ordered a roto fab.
