Roto-fab continues commitment to the ZL1...

Here in the shop, we have been working day, night and weekends to create innovative products for you. I personally eat, sleep and breath ZL1 and have every since we brought our ZL1 into the shop. Although I'm no longer permitted to say "ZL1" in the house, I do go to sleep thinking of what we will make next for this amazing car!

Our ZL1 cold air intake system has been a great success so far. Whether you want to go "no tune" or get wild with your ZL1, this is a great intake for you! In addition to our cold air intake, we are offering some cosmetic products such as carbon fiber finish engine cover, strut tower brace and fuse relay cover to match the finish offered on our intake system.

Back to performance-we have our own SC coolant reservoir for the ZL1 which mounts behind the air box. The kit will be available later this month. The reservoir itself is available now for those that can't wait, but we would rather supply the complete kit with instructions which will happen very soon! We have put our ZL1 Big Gulp air intake scoop ahead of everything for the moment-more on that in a minute.

Our W/W kit does mount in the same location as the S/C coolant reservoir, so we will be developing another WW washer reservoir for those who want both.


As many of you know, we are also in development of a very unique air scoop just for the ZL1. Below is a look at our Big Gulp air scoop and brake duct combination.

We will continue our commitment to this product line and to you as a ZL1 owner. Your input has been appreciated: and as you can see, has been integrated into our products.Thanks for your continued support-we aren't done yet either!
Mike

Thank you for your commitment to the development of products for the ZL1, and especially the no tune required CAI. I installed mine a couple weeks ago, and it is a high quality product with well written instructions. Love the sounds coming from it and the additional performance. I'm interested in the air duct and the SC reservior too and they are at the top of my mod list. I could spend every spare $ I have on this car and then some. Thanks again!

Ok maybe you covered this in another thread but when in the air intake position does the big gulp still apply air to the front break?

No, in the "air intake" position virtually all of the air is going to the intake. However, in the "brake duct" position you are receiving appr. the same amount of air to the brakes as the stock duct while providing air to the intake. In other words, you can run all air to intake, or a combination of air to intake and air to brakes. This is possible because our duct is using more of the opening in the grill and maintains a larger cross section which allows more air flow than the stock duct. We decided there is no sense in running more air to the brakes than stock which would also be cooling more than the other side, therefore, a position of "all brake" duct isn't required.

We are shipping our first batch of Big Gulps tomorrow! We will be working on our new W/W reservoir for those like you who have or plan to purchase our S/C coolant reservoir. For those of you that don't plan to use our S/C reservoir, we already have a W/W reservoir kit which mounts behind our air box.

Does the addition of the Big Gulp to the standard CAI which adds more air into the system require a tune?

I had an original Roto-Fab for my 2010 SS. I just ordered one for my 2013 ZL1. Guess I am a habitual Roto-Fab customer.

Received mine today, very well packaged for shipping, the pictures do not do this intake justice. I will install it tomorrow when I'm rested and there is daylight! Thank you for such a nice first mod.

Thanks Mike for mentioning the grommet, turns out I rushed it without re-checking, fits with no clearance problems great CAI. Love the sound under WOT now, that's how the car is supposed to sound with just enough blower whine to put a smile on our faces!

Glad to hear it! We certainly appreciate your comments. I'm sure feedback from our customers is more valuable to those "on the fence" than anything we could possibly say ourselves.

We always try to put out the best product we possibly can. Sometimes that means looking at what we already have and finding ways to improve it.

We are in development of an alternate WW reservoir which mounts under teh master cylinder. This will allow you to use our SC reservoir behind the air box. I think we will have to come up with some sort of upgrade kit for those who already have our WW reservoir behind the air box.

Any ETA on the alternate W/W reservoir. Been patently waiting I'll be picking my car up from the shop in 2 weeks and hope to have the tank by then.

We've were briefly back on the project this week, but a large volume of orders are making it tough for us to stay on it. If we can't have it in two weeks, just make sure the pump is mounting and the tubing we supplied is ran up to the engine compartment. If this is done, the reservoir will drop in in just a few minutes from the top side.
