Re: Volant CAI

Got mine today. Snapped some pictures of the unit and the finished install. About to go fill up the tank and romp around. I will let you know how it sounds and feels later today.

Re: Volant CAI

Here are the specs. I think the airbox has a 4" connection and the tube into the TB is a 4.5 to 3.5 reducer. The airbox also looks like it might be open on the right side (fender side), even though...

Re: Hardcopy Owners Manuals

Just got my 2012 manuals in the mail. Called a week or two ago and the lady paused when I told her it was a 2012, said it was her first request for a 2012 manual. No VIN needed either.

Re: Need advice. Is it worth doing this....

Umm, how did you get pictures of the inside of my ride? I have the same exact hole, on a 2012. They must carry or mount them with a tool that is sharp because mine is in the exact same place.
