Roto-Fab intake

Ok, installed my intake this morning and got everything done and secure but when I went to shut the hood it was tight and at the center tip of the hood I had to push to get it to shut is that normal on these intakes do to the seal sealing against the hood?

Your box is prob on top of one of the rubber hoses run along the bottom. Mine fit perfectly.

Found it after watching a video from Roto-Fab. I had it sitting on 1 of the black clips that hold the line in place under the box. Fixed!!

I'm glad you got it sitting correctly. The Roto-Fab is a great intake system!

Best regards,

Have another problem! Got in to drive it to work and when I started it up it sounded fine at first and than got rough. When I gave it gas it bogged. When I installed my Volant I never had any issues like this. What is it?

Maybe something is off with your MAF sensor or it is dirty. That is all I can think of.

Before you put the MAF in do you take the black gasket off or do you leave it on?

I didn't touch any gaskets so I am pretty sure you leave it alone.

Did you do a fuse pull or Batt disconnect? You should.

Same thing! I remember reading on here somewhere about the MAF from GM. Some were good and some were below standards. I think I have the weak 1 not the strong 1. Does someone sell a aftermarket MAF sensor?

Jet did but it was found to be worthless. The weak vs strong only affects the ss, you could get some MAF cleaner and try using some of that it could be dirty.

I took the sensor out and blew it out gently with some air. It only does it when I sits idle for a couple of minutes. When I first start the car it sounds fine but within a minute or two it lowers the RPM and sounds like it is not running. But when I drive it I have no problems. I might contact Roto-Fab and see what they say. Thanks

Your not the first to have an initial issue. From what I've read they (sensors) recalibrate and all is well in just a few days. It's not use to getting so much air, but it will be fine. Go easy, then try to open her up and after a few rides it should be fine. Also on the hood adjustment Roto Fab tells you to lift the weather stripping up about a quarter inch then shut the hood to get the perfect seal.

Ok, I will give it the weekend and see how things go. If not better I will call them Monday. Thanks

So when you bought your Roto-Fab intake did you decide to go with the dry or oiled filter? Any advantages from 1 over the other?

I went with the dry filter because I didn't trust myself cleaning and re-oiling the oil filter. I think the oil filter performs a little better than the dry filter as far as air flow but I could be wrong.

I prefer and recommend the oiled filter. The oiled filter flow's better and is serviceable and will last longer. The dry filters do filter a little better, but they also flow less and will continue to flow less and less throughout the life of the filter.

Best regards,

Tyler
