The Roto-fab cold air intake system for the 2016-2019 Cadillac CTS-V is a high quality, no tune required intake for Gen 3 CTS-V owners. Chassis dyno test results from three very reputable shops have shown gains ranging from 20+ HP up to 30+ HP with the Roto-fab cold air intake alone on otherwise stock cars. Gains with a tune were even more impressive! Now CTS-V owners can enjoy great performance, sound and appearance from a single bolt-on product. Roto-fab has long been a recognized performance leader in the 5th and 6th Gen Camaro ZL1 cold air market. Now we are well on our way to earning the same status among CTS-V enthusiasts.
The Roto-fab third gen CTS-V cold air intake system features a powder coat aluminum air box custom formed and TIG welded to mate to the stock air inlet duct while hugging the CTS-V contours all the way around. The top perimeter effectively seals to the hood providing all of the advantages of a lid while maximizing air box volume and providing space for a huge filter.
Our unique MAF sensor housing/air box adapter features a 6 inch diameter mounting surface for filter mounting. The housing then transitions down as it passes through the air box wall to create the air box mounting flange on the exterior while simultaneously creating a velocity stack type of entry on the duct's interior. Due to our rigid air box mounting system, we incorporate a silicone hump hose connector at the inlet elbow to absorb motor rock.
To increase air velocity, the inlet elbow is custom molded with a slight taper throughout its length as it transitions down to the throttle body. To maximize air volume, we maintain a large ID on the inlet elbow then use a silicone reducer to step down to the throttle body clamping diameter.
The coupler clamps are stainless steel as are all of the mounting screws. From start to finish, the Roto-fab cold air intake for the Gen 3 CTS-V is hand designed and built by US craftsmen using high quality materials combined with American ingenuity.
