Slim,

Have you received the prototype from Roto-fab yet?

As you know, it's always much cheaper to go with our powder coat finish as opposed to an automotive color. However, once you've had a RJT box on your car, it would probably be difficult to settle for less.
Any updates on this?

Our prototype air box provides the alignment necessary, but we still need to create a tube to go from the MAF housing to the throttle body. As we did with the Maggie, the polished stainless steel tube will most likely be available first. Afterwards, we will follow up with a plastic tube for this application.

Any update on the prototype airbox yet?

I have been working with Roto-Fab. The new air box was sent to me and fitted up to the car. Now we are working on a new tube. Roto-Fab is hoping to have the tube done today and shipped out. If that happens I will have the tube on Friday if not it will be Monday. Once I have it all on the car I will post up pictures.

Thanks Slim2SS for the response and how much fun are you having with the Supercharger?

The tube and first mock-up box should have make it to Robert on Friday. While he is test fitting the combination, we are ironing out the air box design for production. It's looking good so far. We should have some pics of the final air box by tonight-Saturdays are good for R&D work!
As of now it appears the air box wall and the tube will both be changed to fit this application. We are taking this approach to achieve a correct fit, but also we want to use our existing MAF housing. It's already proven to make great power and tune well with in a S/C application; therefore, it's the one part we definitely don't want to change!

I did get everything from Roto Fab on Friday. I mocked it all up and sent it back to them first thing this morning. So it should be real soon!!!

Your roto-fab is still on your car

I made some small modifications to your wiper reservoir, and tweaked a couple of things(mods are unnoticeable). Long story short, you officially have the straightest intake tract I've ever seen on a camaro.

We go on the dyno tomorrow with our first stage 2 eforce system.
Can't wait for some #'s

Thanks
Mike Haddad

Pending one last test fit, here is the final version of the Roto-fab CAI for the E-force equipped cars. We've modified the air box, the inlet elbow and the changed the hose couplers. We are posting some views that show the diffferences in the air box itself.
The hump hoses we send to "Slim2SS" will be black in color and they are cut shorter to fit properly. We've already had good feedback from customers that have dyno tested our intake by turning the MAF housing enough to couple to the throttle body. The set-up pictured will yield the same results.
We will be sending the prototype to "Slim2SS" Monday for a final test fit before releasing the intake. He has been very helpful to us in the development of this system.

That looks really nice Mike @ HaddadMotorsports made some small modifications to make my Roto Fab fit the E Force.

We've sent out a handful of these kits already. We only have one more in stock; however, we are building another batch of them this week.
Send a pm if you are interested in one!

We've just finished our first production run of the E-force boxes. While they are at the powder coater, we will be building the stainless steel intake tubes. We will have more kits available next week.
