    I think the Volant looks kinda dumb, but that's just my opinion. I went with a SLP lid and K&N filter, I felt a difference, nothing huge but definitely a bit more peppy. I'm a money tight college student as well and would have a tough time forking out $250 for a CAI system vs. $90 for the lid.

    I vote Volant, cant beat them really...by the time you buy the lid kit filter and ramair setup you have more into i than a volant in the the first place and still a bit more restrictive... worth the extra $$$ IMHO, but I am also the type who will wait on buying something vs. buying a cheaper alternative...

    what did you have to cut?

    If you're only taking HP into consideration, then Volant claims to have the highest gain.

    I like beauty, and have seen some pretty trick Lid setups but i view the volant as a look of raw power kind of beauty, kinda fitting for a Trans Am...

    Get some 4" PVC Heat it to the shape then cool it. PVC fors and stays so you wont have to worry about loosing shape. Especially 4" takes a while to heat it with a gun just to get it to bend easy. last paint it to Black or whatever color goes with your motor.
