Few things to consider.

1. Demodding due to sale of their ZL-1
2. Going a different direction, maybe full upgrade from a known modifier and they have their own set up.
3. Cold Air Inductions recently released their intake.

Just something I could think of off the top of my head.

Love mine. If you are worried about low end replace your TB with a ported. I put a VMAX from FSP and i noticed low end power increase in the butt dyno.

Only a smile on my face. I run 93 octane down here in Fla also. I dont know if it make a difference. The TB was only $150 if you return your original. I kept my original and paid $350.00 Took 10 min to put on, I also have a big gulp from rotofab.

I took me 30 min to put her back to stock for a visit to the dealer for some new tires. (only 5000k is that good or bad? I just keep telling myself I am driving it how I should..lol)

I was at my dealer yesterday for an oil change and the service writer looked right at the Roto Fab and said nothing. I did remove the decal off of it awhile ago! I doubt he would have even noticed a TB. The aftermarket part has to be shown as the cause of a "failure" which as far as I know has not happened. My rears were gone at 5K also! The fronts are still good at 10,600 miles and climbing.

I feel reassured. Just wanted to make sure people that weren't selling them because of non noticeable gains or warranty issues.
When you did the TB and intake did you tune it too or just do the bolt-ons?

No tune yet. I want to do headers and pulleys and tune in the near future, thats about it for the power. I will move on to some cosmetics next, i cant imagine going to much faster on the street.

...what's up with this post? The product works great. There are no known issues or documented problems. Give an example to follow up with other than a shallow post with no facts.

Relax dude, just a question. Not knocking any manufacturers or anything. Just popped on marketplace to look for one and saw a bunch for sale. Usually if somethings great people wouldn't be selling it

The Roto-Fab is easy to install, and not very expensive. It gives a little sound increase to the whine in the supercharger, and supposedly a little uummph to the gettyup.
I prob need to get the big gulp, so it has better access to air.

...I am chill miky, but you used the highlighted phrase which prompted my response. I just asked for an example of what you posted on so that we may all see what it is you are referring to...no biggie......don't get so defensive...really...
