Volant CAI... your experience
I decided to take the plunge and begin the mods on my WK2. Iíve ordered the Gibson Exhaust and this morning purchased the Volant CAI. Having read all the threads on CAIís and members thoughts/opinions of the many array of intakes to choose from, I settled on the Volant.
What I am trying to get as a solid answer is the following:
- Does the Volant have that ďsucking air/vacuumĒ sound? Does the heat shield it comes with help alleviate that?
- In terms of install, is it pretty much just plug and play?
- What are things I should look out for?
- Is the filter oiled or dry?
I have always had K&N CAIís in my SUVís and trucks, and loved them but the WK2 application just looked cheap and didnít look to offer much insulation from the engine compartment. Moparís CAI is overpriced for what it all offers and comes with. Airaid I love (had it in my 5.0 Mustang) but I didnít like how it kept the stock tubing and silencer in place.
By the way; DiscountAutoPerformance is offering the Volant CAI for 5.7 Wk2's for $218. In case any of you are looking for one.
