Nino, thanks for the pics on the scoop mod. Looks great and I imagine it will help get some cool air in. In looks well done!
Agreed...I finally just installed mine today and after stock, a Volant, stock again, and Orssom OTR from Oz, stock again, etc. the Roto-Fab is awesome. Fits and looks like OEM, AND, unlike others so far, gives the car a distinct sound that's not just under hard throttle. Love it. Especially with the VMS tune modded for it that I flashed in at the same time. Finally, the sound, feel, design, fit, etc. I'm happy with.Got my Roto-Fab account and ordered a handful of intakes and now I have one on my car. (and several sitting here)
I must say, perfect like OEM fitment, Great instructions, and the quality is awesome!
Let me add... The sound is an added bonus as well.
Tuning should be done on Thursday. Hopefully I can break the 420 mark ATW's.
Just as an FYI, my Rotofab CAI made the engine sound A LOT louder when driving her hard. However still pretty much sounds the same under normal driving.Where's those dyno results Nino? Are you going to dyno it before AND after the tune, to prove how much you got from the hardware and what came from the tune? Also, which tune are you applying? Or will a local shop roll their own for you?
I ask because I'm very strongly considering a CAI and tune for my GT, but it has to be no-muss no-fuss, and I really don't want the car to be any louder either, so I most likely won't do any exhaust work. So I figure CAI and tune is about the limit of what I'll want to do for now, and I'm reading opinions and hoping I can find a combo that works good and isn't too expensive.
Thanks, that's good to know. I think I can live with more engine noise when driving hard, I just don't want more overall noise all the time like you often get with exhaust work. I made a BAD choice with my trans-am and ended up with fairly loud drone as low as 1400rpm even with the throttle barely open. Yea it sounds awesome at WOT, but it is too loud during daily driving at cruise too. So that's what I'd like to avoid with the G8, hoping for it to remain quiet during daily driving and at freeway cruise. If it wakes up a bit when I put my foot in it, that's okJust as an FYI, my Rotofab CAI made the engine sound A LOT louder when driving her hard.

Absolutely, positively agree. Normal driving, as expected, not greatly different. Any harder throttle, or really hard throttle, it's suddenly lets out a roar so deep and mean it scared me the first time yesterday...had to do it again this morning, just for fun, thoughJust as an FYI, my Rotofab CAI made the engine sound A LOT louder when driving her hard.
