What do you mean an additional air inlet source? Are you talking about a new CAI, or something that compliments the current CAI you just completed?

I installed mine last week on my 6 speed manual. Have not dyno'd but it runs great. Feel the change for sure. It also makes the supercharger scream which sounds way cool.

What was the difference in amibient air temp between the two runs? Engine temp? No offense, but we've seen differences almost that large by just letting the car sit for a while.

I am interested in the Roto-Fab CAI as i had one on my 2010 camaro but I wanted to check and see if you would ever offer the polished tube for the ZL1 CAI like you do for the other camaros. Thanks Kyle......

We are working on a new product that compliment the existing intake.

We are hoping to have the polished elbow available for custom orders in the next month or so.

You are correct...and that is one of the things that can make dyno #s fluctuate. Variables were kept the same as much as possible on the two runs posted. These were the avg. pulls for the stock and Roto-fab respectively.
The variables you mention do leave room for great variation. We do our best to keep things "real" to be fair to our customers.
FYI, our intake was tested 2nd which was in the afternoon at higher ambient than the stock intake.

We do have a few intakes out there which was made possible by one of our dealers working with us on fit-up. Once we were able to acquire our own car, we basically started over.
While maintaining the basic design as yours, we revamped the air box, created new tooling for the MAF housing as well as the inlet elbow. The new MAF housing is the result of testing over 25 variations. This is where designing, machining and molding our plastic products in-house was a huge advantage for us. This housing was "tuned" to the stock calibration of the ZL1.
The inlet elbow is molded to fit the application and has the breather fitting molded in a position allowing us tie into the stock breather configuration. We are currently debating on whether or not we will offer the stainless steel polished elbow such as yours. They are expensive and difficult to fabricate due to the entry/exit locations. We've had several requests for the polished version already, so we are leaning towards a special order only. It's doubtful you will see it available on our site. The good news is if you ever decide to switch to our plastic tube, you shouldn't have any problems getting rid of your polished tube!
Mike

Maybe they do not want to give away thier secret. They did state, however, that they tuned the MAF to match stock specs.

Quick question. Was the hood up or down for both the stock and CAI pulls?

25 RWHP looks really good nice with no tune.
