We have a thread in the ZL1 section that we will update as soon as it becomes available. The system is 99% complete but we want to do some more testing and confirm some things. We should be releasing more details soon. We are working on it though, and understand that there are many waiting for it, so we do want to get it to market as soon as possible.

I have a 2013, and the notch was much larger than needed. I'm not complaining, just saying it fit great.
Looks great!! The lid is made to fit snug for a really nice and sealed up fit around the engine bay. So sometimes you have to position it carefully when working inside that lip on the inner fender well as well as around the rubber seal that contours the front of the engine bay. Glad to hear that you are impressed with the fitment, that's what we like to hear!

If you search you can find the testing that Jannetty Racing did with the scoop, I believe it added an extra 2-3 WHP with our CAI.

Love my recently installed CAI! Got a question about filter maintenance. What is the recommended interval? What is the process?

Great to hear, thanks for choosing Cold Air Inductions Inc.!

When the filter comes to the point where it needs some maintenance (also known as a "recharge"), which is basically cleaning and re-oiling it, we offer a "Recharge Kit" to make sure the job gets done properly. Here is a link to where you can purchase the recharge kit on our website: http://www.coldairinductions.com/filter-recharge-kit

The kit is typically good for 2 complete recharges, comes complete with instructions, and is the only kit that should be used for you Cold Air Inductions Inc. Air Filter. The kit also comes with some more basic instructions as well, but its pretty much rinse, clean, rinse, dry, oil, dry.

The frequency in which you need to "recharge" your air filter really depends on the driving conditions that it is in. It is not uncommon for a filter to last 20k miles or more before needing a full "recharge", but again that is completely dependent on the driving conditions. A simple visual inspection will tell you when the filter is needing a recharge. Once you notice a build-up of dirt/debris in every individual filter pleat and covering the majority of the filter media, it is time for a recharge. Cleaning larger debris from the airbox as well as the filter from time to time also decreases the frequency in which a full recharge is needed.

I hope this answers your question, feel free to let me know if there is anything else that you need. Thanks!

Did my CAI today with the new MAF and ported TB. Definately a snug fit and I too had to fight with the lid screws to get it sealed. I have a 2011 camaro and no battery cable....because this system uses a sealed box for best results, am I supposed to seal the notch for the battery cable or is it not an issue? Dont really want to be sucking in hot air anywhere...what is the fix...duct tape?

Looks great!! Thanks for choosing Cold Air Inductions Inc.!

No need to worry about the small notch, your CAI is going to pull the most air from the path of least resistance, which is from below where the ambient air is coming in at. We did some logging with the notched box, no difference at all in temps or anything else, the notch is very small and will have no effect. All you need to do is enjoy your new CAI!
