No, definitely still beer with the aFe, but instead of a Coorslight with the Volant, you need a Sierra Nevada.
No but really. After driving around with the intake on I do like the sound of the aFe a bit more. Its less "resonating plastic" sounding like the Volant is and more "full, or throaty". Volume level is approximately the same.
As for the butt dyno: I have to say I like the throttle response of the aFe along with a nice burst of pull around 4500rpm. The Volant seemed to have these "pull points" as well, but this one on the aFe is a bit more pronounced. Maybe that means the aFe loses a little bit of power up to the 4500rpm mark and then the gains come into play; who knows without a real dyno yet.
I would have to believe that the aFe flows just as much or more air than the Volant especially as aFe manufactures Volant's air filters. That being said, gains between the two are probably very similar, but so far, I like the sound of the aFe more.
