I'm using the dry filter and have no complaints.

Does one have an advantage over the other?

Oiled filters can get oil on the MAF sensor over time and are a pain to clean/oil. The Volant dry filter is good for 100k miles before maintenance is needed. However I'll take mine out and blow air through it when I change my oil just for piece of mind. Check this out if you haven't already.

The filter clamp keeps coming loose on mine and is a pain taking the shroud out to tighten it. Any tips to avoid this? I was thinking maybe some locktite on the clamp might do the trick.

Re: Volant CAI

So, I'm starting to make my christmas list...
Has anyone on here gone from the K&N drop-in to the Volant CAI? The K&N sounds quite a bit better than the stock filter, but I was wondering if anyone could comment on the noise increase from the K&N to the PowerCore/CAI. I need more sound out of this engine without buying exhaust. Santa's sack won't be able to deliver a Corsa...

Re: Volant CAI

I installed my Volant the other day and I've noticed a slight whistle at roughly 1400-1700RPM's. It only happens in that RPM range and only under load, if i'm coasting down a hill in a lower gear and the engine runs in that range I don't hear it. I'm going to go through everything again and try and find a small leak but I would think it would make that sound acroos the entire RPM spectrum if it was a leak. Any ideas of where to look or is that normal?

Re: Volant CAI

I just installed the volant cai on my 2010 5.7 gc. I know that they don't technically make a cai for this model but I got the one for the 2008 srt to fit (model 17861 I believe). I also purchased a powercore but the volant rep said that this model isn't designed for the powercore. If I can get the powercore to fit, can anyone see any reason why i shouldn't use it? I like the idea of the dry filter with a longer life.

So far I just have the filter that came with the volant installed and it sounds 100x more manly than stock. Definitely worth the upgrade. Now time to decide what filter I want to keep on there permanently.

I don't think so. I haven't seen under the good hood of the 14s in person, but I'm pretty that its a completely different setup than the wks. You may be able to try the volant for the 2013s but not sure. If nothing else, wait a little while and I bet volant puts one out for the 14s sometime this year.

I am not saying they are not a pain in the butt to clean.

Still a K&N fanboi I see......

Whats K&N's response to the fact that their cotton gauze oiled media filters allow more dirt and fine silica particles into your engine that an OEM paper or an aftermarket synthetic media filter does not???????????????????
