Installed the CAI today

Installed the Volant today. Seems well designed, the install took all of about 20 minutes.

Also put in the Silverstar Ultras, and debadged the car.

Now just waiting for the catback...

Appears to be a bit of a different intake tone. Can't say that there's any noticeable performance difference, but I really wasn't expecting any until I install the catback.

Re: Installed the CAI today

What did you do with the hole in the bottom of the air box did you seal it up or just leave it open

Re: Installed the CAI today

I installed my new Dubair yesterday.I haven't driven it yet so I can't say what difference there is.Today I'm putting on the new window in channel vent visors.The air filter unit went on without any problems.Looks really great.The only problem I had with Dubair is they didn't supply the small red vucumm hose,so I went to the hardware and got a piece of red air hose.

I left mine open until the ram air option comes out. It's on the underside so I don't imagine I'm drawing warm air in, and I'd rather not restrict air by closing it up.


But BuilderBill did this:

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

What cat-back are you installing with your Volant ?

I've just ordered a B&B. I've held fire on the Volant because it's going to cost $225 to deliver it into the UK - nearly as much as the CAI itself.

Let us know your feeling on performance gains with both installed.
