Volant air intake just arrived....looks great!

The Volant intake arrived, can't wait to install later this weekend. I will also try to "clean up" the lower brake snorkle - dryer flex line - intake connections. I will try and do back to back tests next weekend at Rockingham Dragway. I am sure that tis will not hurt performance like so many others, may even help over my modified factory air box.

Any hints on getting the sensor out of the existing rubber tube?

If the Volant didn't come with it's own grommet, and you need to re-use the one you have now, use a hair dryer or heat gun to warm the grommet up a bit. Be really careful if you use a heat gun, to not melt it. Soapy water also works well.

I see the Volant has a rubber grommet, so squirt the soapy water onto the existing grommet / sensor, apply some heat and pull straight out?

Nice Floors.

I'm guessing that the "snorkle tube" for the lower opening is sold separate? Or do they not offer that yet?

Thanks for the pics. Let us know how it performs.

The optional "Ram-Air" tube is not available yet.

Lower snorkel assembly not included. I am trying to come up with something that looks as classy as the rest of the assembly. It is certainly the best I have seen to date.

Hey Edwin,

Do they have an ETA on when it will be ready? Just curious.

Thanks.

I have just put together the pieces for the ram air snorkel...show quality for less than $ 100 including 2nd day shipping (couldn't wait).

GE2: you may want this just for the aesthetics!!! Lets see how it goes together next week.

AWESOME!!! I have a volant that should be here before too long. Tell me more about the snorkel Bill. Can't wait to see it.

And yes-- soapy water, twist and pull straight out. If you don't have to re-use the grommet, you can also cut it with a razor blade.
