Talking Introducing the JacFab CAI system! Dyno numbers and video inside...

It's been a couple months coming, I've dropped a few mentionings here and there, but didn't really want to show it off until I had the cold hard proof from the dyno...

The car (mine) used for the baseline is essentially a stock car, major "performance" mods are:

Dynomax #39494 axle back, and JacFab X-pipe w/ resonator delete.

Nothing that probably effects anything in a positive or negative way... The car has the STOCK tune, and was not tuned to run with the JacFab intake.

The baseline was done at 10:30am, Friday 4/27, and the comparison with the JacFab intake done appx. 30 minutes later after we removed the the stock and swapped in the JacFab unit, ambient temp were 5 degrees hotter while running the JacFab intake.

Baseline : 370.25 hp / 363.83 ft lb tq
JacFab inake: 387.95 hp / 373.11 ft lb tq
That's a +17 hp peak gain, and a 9 ft lb peak torque gain, but there are large areas in the curve where both hp and tq show a 20+ gain over the stock... Here is the video...


Please pardon the dirty car, I had to drive for 4 hrs to get to the dyno, as the only one locally is about 4x the price, and it was cheaper to just drive.

Everyone says that cone filters are superior to flat panel filters because they have more surface area. But my theory was that a flat panel filter will allow a straighter air flow path, while also removing the turbulence in the air stream. Combining the flat panel filter with a large, magic if you will, velocity stack like affair built into the filter clamp allows for maximizing the usable surface area of the flat panel filter, and increasing air velocity at the same time.

We are very happy with the outcome of our first prototype, as it looks to have exceeded numbers of most of the competition without the ADM/APEX intake scoop according to both JRE tests... It should also be noted that the ADM/APEX scoop is not installed on the test car, the factory washer bottle is in place, and the fender wells have not been modified in ANY way to attempt to increase airflow... This was tested just as if it had shown up out of a box to a customer, no further modifications, or additional products!

These numbers are also backed up by track (drag strip) testing where the car picked up 2.5 tenths from last years best time with the only changes being the JacFab intake, and short throw shifter modification. However everyone at the track was running a tenth fast due to good air, so if you consider that, we still picked up 1.5 tenths which is right there with what the dyno numbers show.

We currently working on pricing, available color options, and looking at tweaks for the production version to further improve performance, and ease of install.

Thoughts?

Looks nice! I like that you are willing to put some additional thought into your design by straying away from the cone filter and not just using that because that's what everyone else is using. Nice job on the performance increase too!

We've pulled the trigger with a plastic forming company up north of us to have the velocity stack affair made of one piece ABS plastic. Our expected wait is 4-6 weeks for the tooling to be completed, and to receive the first 2 "prototype" pieces for approval.

Once we receive the first to pieces, we will construct 2 more "final prototypes" and head back up to the dyno, and should hopefully be able to start producing these for sale shortly after that.

The final piece is looking like it will be a very nice product, and should be well worth the wait!

We are currently working with a local high end powder coat materials manufacturer to color match the paint colors of the Camaro, so our intakes will have the option of a color matching powder coat finish!

We are expected to get a velocity stack/filter clamp piece machined out of hard coated polyurethane foam for approval around the middle of this coming week, with the pieces expected to start being made upon approval!

We're getting closer guys! I think a lot of people will love the final product!

I got a foam mock up velocity stack/filper clamp piece this last Friday and played with it over the weekend, gave the injection molding place the OK to start producing the pieces yesterday. Just ordered material for the first run of boxes. More air filters in production now, hoping to receive them late this week/early next week. Still waiting on the color matching powders. We're gearing up for production, with more in house testing as well as some 3rd party testing to follow! Keep your eyes peeled!

Just talked to the injection molding company, they said they should have something for me to look at next week sometime... More air filters showing up today... Pretty much have all of the materials in house now to start making these, just waiting on the plastic guys... Wish I had more exciting news.

Here's some good info that was in response to a question on C5:

The direction we are leaning on for the lids is that they will be one solid piece of polycarbonate material, the name of the intake as well as 2 small "windows" will be left clear, and the remaining will be frosted/etched into the lid... It would easily be completely frosted on the back side to give the text, and windows a neat 3d effect, or colored vinyl could be applied to the backside, to give the lid some color and make it unable to see through... See the crude picture below.

Once the injection molded pieces start rolling in, and we get the first handful of intakes completed we are going to be sending 2-3 out for independent testing, and one on the shop car to begin more road/track/dyno testing. I'm thinking when these first few go out for testing I will officially start the "name the intake" contest, in which the winning name will be used on the box lids, and the winner will receive a *FREE* intake!

We do have a rough idea on pricing, but it is still subject to change on the final cost I get from the injection molding company. The current price I have in my head is based on a hopefully worst case scenario price I got from them, and I've got my fingers crossed we can get it down from there...

The bottom is open, so you will be able to take advantage of any brand scoop you choose to install. The intake will be able to retain the stock washer bottle if desired, and the lid will be available with, or without a quick access hole and plug to easily fill the washer bottle without removing the lid.

Still waiting on the powder coat materials manufacturing company on the color matched powders to be offered as an option on anything still powdercoat-able.
