Re: Volant CAI

Just wanted to give you guys a heads up.
I have no affiliation with this company, I just wanted to pass on a good deal that I just found.

Truckaddons.com is running a Memorial Day sale. I just ordered the Volant CAI for my 5.7L and total price $219 with free shipping. I would jump on it if anyone out there is on the fence.

Re: Volant CAI

I just wanted to follow up and see if anyone ordered this intake from Truckaddons.com?
It turns out the part number was listed wrong in their system. I just wanted to give you a heads up so you can contact them right now !!!!!!

The correct part numbers for Volant cold air intakes are;

16157 CAI for '11~'12 Jeep GC (Oiled Gauze Filter Kit)
http://www.volant.com/edetail.asp?ID=67&ptype=f

161576 Power Core CAI for '11~'12 Jeep GC (Donaldson Dry Synthetic Media Filter kit)
http://www.volant.com/edetail.asp?ID=75&ptype=f
I ordered the Power Core kit @ $279.00 from Truckaddons

Mine was just delivered today, along with the Corsa exhaust and Eibach springs. Can't wait to install on the new 2 week old Altitude!

Re: Volant CAI

Did you order from Truckaddons?

They just called me and said they need to charge me $50 more for the correct intake.... and if I choose to send back the one that was wrongly ordered on their part I might get hit with a restocking fee.... WTF

Re: Volant CAI

Ordered mine from New Level Motorsports (http://www.volant-intakes.com/). Maybe not the cheapest, but it shipped Monday, I received it today and had good email updates the whole time.

Re: Volant CAI

I just looked that up and they have it for 244 shipped. Truckaddons is telling me the lowest they can go is their invoice price of 269. Im a little irritated with this. The have the wrong part listed on their website with a price of 219 then once I get it after waiting almost a week and a half they want me to send it back and then charge me 50 more bucks for the correct one even though it was their fault for listing the wrong part. Im even more irritated they they said if I shipped it back they would charge me a restocking fee.... Im call tomorrow to see if I can cancel my order for 269 or if they can match the price of New Level.... and if they can't they need to not charge me for their mistake.

Will do. Turns out the springs didn't show up, but should be in sometime next week.
Doing a JRZ coilover suspension on my '08 M3 AND trying to get the Jeep sorted out as quickly as possible, so parts are showing up left and right. Not sure which project I'll get busy on first....with our 10 month old son time for projects is limited.

Re: Volant CAI

Just completed the intake install... well mostly.
The supplied bracket to secure the intake near the fender is way too long and won't work, so I'll need to come up with something else.
As mentioned earlier in the thread, the air box does come close the the brake lines on mine as well. I reused one of the rubber grommets from the factory airbox and added it to the hole on the bottom of the Volant box... looked like it should go there. That seemed to help some of the interference with the hard line.
I also chose to hide the logos on the silicone couplers for a cleaner look.

Here are a few crappy iphone pics.

Re: Volant CAI

There is a post on another thread about that bracket. Seems Volant has been packing the wrong bracket in the parts kit. Call Volant and ask them to send you the correct shorter bracket.
