Installed my Roto-Fab intake, I'm pleased. Looks great, with good quality components and R&R instructions.

I like that it's not obnoxiously loud when I step on it but you can tell it's there, it's more of an aggressive intake sound now...like it's growling!

The truck feels strong under heavy acceleration, still stock exhaust but you can note a slightly deeper note at idle and rev!

Fuel economy....we'll see!

I like it!!

this is for everyone who hasn’t seen the video..


but, so far, it’s been great. The auto start/stop lifter light stayed on. But the vehicle hasn’t turned off once while at a sign or light. I know the DFM is off because I have more on demand power, and my fuel economy has dropped. Sorry steelboss, you’re about to be in the single digits lmao.
Funny story to me at least. Im a Chevy dealer technician and there was zero information on how these connectors came apart. When the new body style trucks came out I had an electrical issue and TAC wanted me to check terminal tension in this connector. I had myself and 3 other guys trying to figure this crap out. It sounds stupid now with a video showing how to do it but we were soo confused. One guy grabbed that corner on accident and BOOM thing pulled right up. GM gave us no information on any of this. Ever since then I have loved these connectors.

I had the same issue just doing everything I could to separate them lmao! But I will say, they are genius!!

Yes. We trimmed the mud flap and a decent amount off the bottom of the inner felt liner and that took care of it. If I really get after it though it’ll rub on that little black frame extension. So to remedy, I may cut it at a 45 degree angle to give it that final clearance and weld a patch on it to cover.

Ordered a Roto-Fab Cold Air Intake System today! I will be sure and post a review and pictures after I get it installed.
I'm anxious to get it on and experience the improved sound, performance (seat of my pants anyway) and fuel economy...and of course the great looks of this quality component!!
How is it

How is it
See my post on this thread on Nov 19th.

To update further I would say that I continue to be very pleased with the intake, had to tighten it down again after a road trip but that is normal after initial installation. Fuel economy has stayed about the same but the seat of my pants performance feels it is an improvement. Great sound too, probably why the fuel economy has not improved (always have my foot in it), love the growl! Looks great too!!

It's a keeper!!

Any idea how well it holds up through snow/ice and car washes?
Over time it will peel off. I have Plastidiped lots of things. Looks good for a while but eventually comes off especially in a car wash. I would highly recommend just getting new black emblems.
