Re: Volant CIA

I'm happy.

I haven't heard anyone say they're not.

Re: Volant CIA

Just ordered one from Southern Hot Rod $295., along with the Corsa exhaust. From what I have read on the forum, it should be a positive result.

Re: Volant CIA

I am very happy with mine. Just pick a CAI you like though... they are all roughly the same when you get into the name brands.

Re: Volant CIA

I tried the stock/snockel mod with ram air. My best time was 13.37 in 50 degree weather. My best time with Mopar CAI was 13.22 in 39 degree weather. My best time to date was with stock airbox with KN. It was 43 degrees and I ran 13.16 at 102.51.

I recently installed the Volant. In 60 degree w, I ran 13.28 at 102. I believe w temps in the 40s, I would best my 13.16 by at least at 10th. Why? my quickest time with stock box, KN when it was in the 60s was 13.37 at 101. The Volant is better all around based on my track experience and daily driving. It is smooth, quiet, and the fitment is precise. I had the GSM CAI. Sent it back.

Re: Volant CIA

Very good unit. Keeps the hot air out and you can adapt the ram air to the brake scoop for under $15 with parts at Home Depot Or what ever the what ever the Canadian equivalent is, Maple Depot you choose.

Oh, congrats on St. Pierre (spelling?) beating Matt Huges, It was bound to happen eventually, St. Pierre is a good fighter.
