Roto Fab CAI installed.... disappointment..

So I installed my new rotofab intake today and I have to say I'm kinda disappointed in my quiet supercharger sound. I've had supercharged cars before and with a cai the SC would scream! Why does this SC sound tame? I am planning on also installing a 2.85 pulley for now so no tune and then the hub will be on there for the next pulley drop, will I notice more SC whine once I start going smaller pulleys?

Side note: while installing the rotofab my daughter came out to the garage and said she loves the new car.and hugged it ! LMAO!

I have to say the same except I have av 18% pulley on mine now and I thought the wine would be louder. Maybe it's because I have headers and no cats and it's really loud at wot

Remove the weather strip from the cowl if you want to hear more whine. Helps with heat as well.

headers will tame down the boost sound because the exhaust is so much louder and you loose some restriction.


These are factory blowers they are not going to design them to be aftermaket loud. they have to apeal to the people that would be annoyed by too much blower wine.
