Re: Volant CAI Install Issue....
My Volant intake is finally installed!!!
I ended up boxing in the hole with starboard, which is a similar plastic to the actual volant air box. I did my best to fit the pieces to the contours of the box and used a bit of rtv silicone for good measure. It's air-tight and very solid. If it had been in an area where I could actually see it once installed, I would have spent more time making it pretty. In any case, it's in.
The amount I cut out is the absolute minimum necessary to get the box to fit. Based on the area that needs to be modified, I see no reason why Volant couldn't easily and inexpensively modify their mold to allow the box to fit correctly.
Here's some photos....
