EDIT: Just read through more of the thread and saw $85 for shipping.

Has anyone got this onto a dyno yet?
More noise than anything (the stock is so quite) but normal driving cant tell the difference, slight better fuel economy.

My HEMI has always been responsive no lag at all.
I would say it is a little crisper but that could be the sound giving me the impression of a crisper response.
Open the throttle you know you got a V8. That's what I missed before.
Love overtaking road trains, up behind them at 80k's by their cab doing 160k's and its roaring

Re: Volant CAI

So I was installing my CAI today and ran into a speed bump. How do u remove the bolts on the inside bottom of stock box? Does the rubber come off? I see that it's a relatively easy install but my problem is getting the stock box out. Any help would be appreciated!

After you remove the weatherstripping from the front intake lip, just pull the box out. Those rubber things at the bottom are grommets that are squeezed over little formed plastic pegs.

Taking the top of the box and air filter out help with removal (Less stuff in the way.) Also make sure you cut the zip tie connecting the lower air intake box to the set of wires...

Hope this helps.

You should be able to pull the bottom half of the stock box straight up and out of the engine bay w/ a firm tug. Be sure there are no hoses in the way...

Re: Volant CAI

The Volant that I ordered a week ago finally arrived from Auto Anything. My net cost was ~$220 after using a coupon and the $20 rebate they have. I can't wait to get it installed tomorrow!

It's the same one for the Durango which Autoanything does list.

Re: Volant CAI

They had a one day coupon for 15% off and the price last week was $302 before coupon. I also got 6% back through Fatwallet, plus the $20 rebate. We got everything installed this morning and love it! The install was also pretty straight forward and the fit/finish are excellent...so easy that my wife was able do most of the install! (it is her Jeep after all...)



...and a picture for good measure with the 18% front tint and chrome bezels added.
