Stock dyno/rotofab cai dyno/tuned dyno.

I will have dyno sheets as soon as they get email to me.

But anyways.

1. stock run 321hp 333tq at 82 deg
2. Rotofab 336hp 349tq at 80 deg
3. tuned 347hp 352tq at 82 deg.

Run 1 was about a month ago. The other 2 were on the same day with about an hour between them.

Tuned at speed inc. With the trans tune its like a different car. Totally worth money. It pulls all the way past 6k now and shifts like the car should of stock. Im going to try and get a few track times before headers and a stall.

I'm glad to hear you are seeing some good numbers! We did see even bigger gains on another dyno test-we are also waiting on the dyno sheets! They picked up over 20 HP! As we all know, dyno numbers can fluctuate. The important thing is to not only see good gains on the dyno, but feel the difference in the seat as well.
How was your install? Since this is our newest intake in the field, your feedback is appreciated.

You guys overnighted them to me so I could get it tuned by speed inc the next day. Thanks for helping me out. The install was really easy. The only thing that made anything difficult was some of the pictures. But I pretty much had it figured out before even looking at the instructions. Everything fit perfectly too I might add. I think it made the car louder than the muffler delete. Great product at a price I love.

I like the sound under acceleration. It's a Camaro-you need to hear some power when you put your foot in it! At cruising speeds, however, it sounds very close to stock which is nice on a trip or when you want to talk with the person sitting next to you! Thanks for using Roto-fab products.

Its a great piece for the price and they hooked me up quick so I could get it tuned while I was in Schaumburg for a few days. The car arrived at the dyno hot and wasnt allowed to cool down for the pulls. Anybody thinking about getting tuned, do it. It pretty much changes the whole feel of the car. I will be heading back to speed inc after I get my headers and stall done. Im trying to get to a track, but St Louis Gateway is the closest to me at 2 hours away and they never have t&t days except for like once in two months.

LOL. Wow. You seriously looked up my thread to try and look smart. Im not trying to sell a product. I never said that the CAI specifically gave me those gains. I was just sharing my experiances with people, because there isnt much info out there yet.

Go buy your $500 intake and run somebody with a shitty $350 intake. See if you beat him, let me know.

Ill put up the cost difference between the 2 intakes on the run if you win.

Run along now.

I was guessing. But, I was just told the group buy would be under $400, which makes it not as bad as I was thinking.

How was your install? Since this is our newest intake in the field, your feedback is appreciated.

In this picture I don't see any rubber trim on the bottom of the intake shield? In a different thread there's some pictures of a rotofab CAI with rubber trim on the bottom of the intake shield.

Just wondering what's going on. I'm having some issues with my LMR CAI and want to make 100% sure that whatever CAI I go with in the future won't cause any paint damage to my car.

I think you might be referring to the pics of my install on a black SS. I asked for that extra piece of weatherstripping to finish off that side of the airbox. It can't rub your paint though if you don't have it. I just thought it looked like it needed it.
