Photos of Volant Intake with lower brake scoop
Attached are the photos for the lower ram air for the new Volant CAI. I ordered the 3 parts (4" * 4" elbow, 4" polished tube, 4" * 3.5" coupler) from SFX.
The biggest mod was cutting off most of the stock air box mounting bracket (with the rubber grommet) to allow for the 4" tube to extend from the 90 degree elbow up to the bottom of the Volant box with the existing 3.5" inlet. This bracket is not used with the Volant. My brake snorkel was previously shortened when I modified the stock box by connecting it with the 4" flex dryer vent tubing to the brake snorkel.
I did drill and install a screw in the plastic factory grill snorkel to the front of the Volant air box as it was a bit of a sloppy fit.
Oh yeah, I ran a 12.93 at Rockingham yesterday with this setup. My previous best with the '07 was 13.17....don't get your hopes up too much as I also changed from the original thermostat to a 180 Stant (p/n 14248). I believe that the thermostat change with a fan mod (NOT GSM) made the greatest difference. I will post the slips on another link.
