Volant CAI - bracket too long??
 
1 Attachment(s)
I'm a little confused, everything went very well and easy to install (instructions are weak). However, I am unable to figure out how to attach the bracket to the Filter Box and Stock Bolt. The bracket is too long.

Any idea's??

Flip it over so the "long" leg is up against the Volant enclosure.

See attachment, I still cant get the bolt in. It would have to stand up pretty high and not flush.. what am i missing here? Can someone take a picture and post me how the bracket is suppose to mount.

You have to fuss with it, but it fits. I'll take you a picture as soon as it stops raining.

Look how much smaller your bracket is then mine. Thanks for the pic, I'm going to call and ask for the correct bracket.

You may have the right bracket. It took me a long time to finess that puppy in there. It's quite arguious. Let us know how it goes.

If you look at the picture again that I had with the bracket in place. The filter box is already sitting flush with vehicle. When I squeeze the bracket and align it with the bolt hole it pulls the box up about an inch which then isn't flush. I'll probably just run up to lowes and grab a smaller L bracket and be done with this. :)
