Re: Volant CAI

Ok follow up.. Drove it down to the mall today about 20 miles. Smooth as ever..kick down when hitting the accel. Hard ... No drama... Just smooth power and some sweet noise. Now for mph...you will see modest gains at best if you drive it the same way. However, if you are like me... And punch it ...you will be filling up more often.

Really.. The drive quality is vastly improved.

Re: Volant CAI

Re: Volant CAI

Just ordered mine, it seems to be the best designed plus I've known a few people with them on other vehicles and swore by them. It was 260 shipped with the discount code and free shipping promotion. I haven't even had my WK2 for 24 hours yet ... This is going to be just as bad as my JK. Just Empty Every Pocket still applies

Re: Volant CAI

Just installed mine and the sound is really nice coming out of it, motor revs up faster it seems. Anyways, it looks like the airbox clamp (pipe side) is right up against the pipe for the AC condenser. Over time with movement and rubbing I think there may be an issue with it wearing through. Does anyone else's touch? or is it just mine?

Re: Volant CAI

Just wondering. Can Volant air box replace V6 OEM air box like Airaid did? I thought both V6 and Hemi had same 4" intake tube.

Re: Volant CAI

yes the volant is completely open air facing the fender and still utilizes the snorkel for fresh air as well. just think of your average intake sound and add the manliness of the old spice guy to it
