    Well I think I have the only Spectre intake. I mocked it up for them but I'm not sure if they have advertised them or not. I love mine, of course I would, I built it. There will be one more on the forum before long. I sold the other one that I had to another g8 owner.

    Well, let me be the first to whine about the RotoFab. I installed mine several days ago, just before going on a 1200 mile trip. It had to help my gas mileage because I was/am embarrassed at how loud it is at WOT. SOP feels better than stock and 2/3 throttle sounds mean but WOT? I want to take it off but I am waiting for the VMS tune and am not sure how much the CAI lends to the tune. Anyone know?

    If its tuned for Roto there is a difference. Do my lower panel mod and the noise will let up because its not starving for air.

    I fabbed up my own intake using off the shelf Spectre parts. I believe you helped me out here cluing me in on the fact that the 3"-2.5" reducer would indeed fit on the intake manifold side of the MAF.
