    I spoke to sales in the States a couple of years ago about wholesaling them, the margin wasn’t there with increasingly poor exchange rate.
    Still isn’t really, versus VCM and others.
    Point is that availability / popularity at retail has little to do with product quality or effectiveness.
    Personally been a champion of the thing for five or six years, only reason I don’t have one fitted is under bonnet space with the oil accumulator.

    When I purchased my Rotofab CAI last year, the exchange rate was $0.73. Its slighlty better now. Delivery took less then a week (better then Aus Post).

    Looks really good.
    I've got the walkinshaw 310 cai on mine and it's basically just a cover over the top of the pod filter. It not enclosed and doesn't have the section that goes down in behind the headlight like that one. Probably ok but worries me a bit at how exposed the filter is.

    A fellow member here (chris) showed me how he originally fit his and I fit mine the same.
    Below pic is my car with the Chev SS intake elbow that suits LHS Sound Enhancer.

    Chris has refit his and gone more the traditional path by purchasing the normal Intake elbow and plumbing in the sound enhancer.
