Part of the reason a CAI was not installed from the factory, is because the drive by noise emission requirements would have been over the DB level with the extra supercharger noise thrown into the mix. The Z/28 does not have to worry about supercharger whine.

...I agree, the restricted air intake port on the factory air cleaner assembly plus the baffling noise reduction orrifice reduces engine noise/super charger whine to pass drive by noise regulations.

I bought mine at that price from them. Best deal around.

If they have it in stock they ship fast. I was shocked how quickly I received mine but mine was basic black. My hood is rarely up so color was not a deal for me.

No tune means just install and see the HP increase. (A conservative 20 BHP) The CAI was designed to not cause issues with air fuel or driveability. You can tune but if you don't the car will run fine, see an increase in HP and retain the warranty. Best "bang for the buck" mod on the ZL1.

Painted finished will take longer as they are painted to order. We will update you via email as soon as we have any info for you.

Thanks for the business and support guys! I truly appreciate it!

The lightning isn't the only car in the stable

Unlike you, I don't buy a product just because someone says it makes the most hp. It takes more than a butt dyno to impress me. I could raise the hood and take the air box lid off and gain hp on a dyno but thats not all I'm after. I'd like to know if the IATs are lower than stock in traffic and on the interstate. Does it lean the car out any compared to stock?

Anyone installed the Roto Fab and tune only? If so, what where the HP gains after the tune with the Roto fab combo?

I did the RotoFab on my 2011 SS L99. Great product, easy to install and makes a noticeable difference.

In my opinion, it would not be worth it to tune with only an intake system installed. I suggest waiting until you do more modifications and getting to the point where you need a tune before doing so. The Roto-Fab works great on the stock tune. Feel free to call, PM or email me anytime with questions.

Best regards,

Tyler

I know this will change the supercharger whine to be heard much more clearly. But, will it make the exhaust note change at all? I really like the stock exhaust note and don't want it to change.

Should not change the exhaust note except a tad louder since it will breathe even better.

Carbon fiber

I'm interested in the RF intake, ww relocate, and big gulp as the first mod to my vert, but I have a question. Is the carbon fiber finish real or just hydro. I'm trying to think through why its typically so much more money compared to painted.

Thanks,
Anthony

Hydro Dipped. I would suggest looking at one first hand before making your choice.

Anthony,

They are Hydro-dipped. The only system made of true Carbon fiber is the K&N, but that comes with a higher price tag and honestly, I still prefer the Roto-Fab. There is not really any benefit to going with real carbon on an intake system, other than being able to say that it is.

The Carbon fiber finish does look great though.



Feel free to call, PM or email me anytime with questions.

Best regards,

Tyler

Feedback from more than 1 source shows 25+ HP gains with the hood closed. 30+ HP has been reported to us with "hood open" pulls. The additional gains with the hood open helped influence the decision to develop the Big Gulp to get additional air to the intake.
Keep in mind on the dyno it is very difficult to simulate the air flow. Therefore, some of the additional gains seen with the hood open on the dyno may be realized with the hood closed under actual driving conditions.
