    volant air intakes

    I'm about to order a slp H.O. hood I was wondering if a volant air intake
    would work with the new hood? does anybody have this combo or the
    ws6 hood with the volant intake? I called up volant and they dident know
    if it would work because they only test fitted their intake with the stock
    hood. any ideas!!

    you have to use alittle weather stip to seal the volant perfect to a ram air hood. i have a volant. they are made for non ram air cars.
    the weather strip is easy to do.

    so it will work on a slp H.O. hood I just need some weather striping?
    see im a little confused the slp H.O. hood does not come with a new
    air box it uses the little half inch slot on the stock air box. so how
    is the volant air box going to work? the hole top of the volant air box
    is open right? sory if that doesent make sense im confused my self.

    I have a WS6 with a Volant CAI. The Volant will not seal to the hood with the weather stripping that comes with the kit. What you need to do is put the provided weather strip on and then pick up a tube of copper pipe foam insulation from Home Depot or Lowe's. The one I have is a very dark gray color and almost looks like it came with the kit. A 6' or so length costs about $3. The foam strip will be split down the middle and have adhesive tape strips down the length of the split. Simply cut one solid length to fit completely around the box (except for the front) and pull away the adhesive tape and press it over the provided weather strip.

    Good luck...
