Despite the Roto-Fab site saying Harrop do sell their products
'Some' of their products.....
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.
Just curious how did you plumb in the sound enhancer mate.
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.
I too contacted Harrop. Their response was that they don't sell Roto Fab. Can anyone who's purchased one, post the sellers details? I want to ensure I purchase the correct one for my MSE.
Best place to buy one is from Roto-Fab direct in the States. I suggest order the 2014-2015 Chevrolet SS sedan system with the 2017 ¾” NPT to 1” hose adapter . If you email them and tell them what you want they will send you an order you can pay with paypal or similar. I opted for the dry filter option.
I originally bought the 2016-2017 system, but with the MSE on the US cars being on the left side compared to ours which is in the right side it required a lot of hose and plumbing to get it to work. I later bought a 2014 inlet elbow and drilled a hole in the side and fitted the ¾” NPT to 1” hose adapter held in with high temperature JB weld glue and was able to fit the original MSE hose which made for a much neater original finish. It is working well with no problems.
Here is one place
They also have some other stuff that I think looks good like the carbon splitter
Just not sure if they ship to aus or not
Thanks heaps crvee8. That's very helpful. I've emailed them.
Cheers. I like the splitter.
If the transport charges are killer, consider a local version.
Just an update for anyone looking at https://www.maverickmancarbon.com/ they do ship to Australia.
The price for the front splitter is $475
Because of the size ($175 + $300 in post).
So if except the roto-fab to be like $200-$300 in postage.
Imoengnr I do like the look of the local one except it’s gloss black and I kinda like the textured plastic look.
Email Rotofab directly from their website.
2016-17 Chev SS intake system (to keep the sound enhancer). Give em your postcode, suburb, country and they will advise postage cost (was very reasonable for the size of the intake). Also advise any options like extra air filter (dry or oiled). They will send you an invoice to pay via paypal, once paid they despatch (Fedex or DHL, can't remember).
Have a look through VCM's website, they had a simple, textured black plastic splitter that's usually not in stock.
Also a couple of V8 supercar type splitters, if you're into that sort of thing...
Is $726AUD including postage from the USA, a reasonable price for a 2017 Roto Fab airbox with oiled filter?
How much of that is postage?
