    Well IMHO it is all about fit as both will deliver the same RWHP results.....
    So fit and finish is the decision to make.....I would however use a dryflow filter like AEM or Amsoil versus the oiled cone filter.

    I just installed a Volant. I have Volant for no other reason then because I got it for a whopping $120 shipped. It looks great and it was easy to install. Other then that, I have little input as to what is better.

    Ya, that was one think that I thought of immediately when I saw it was "heat soaking!" Heat soaking issue aside, power gains about the same? How's the sound?

    I like the Volant box............Since it is enclosed and only sucking air from the core support area.
    The 04 K&N kit I seen was open on one side of the box sucking that nice warm air by the motor.
    Don't be afraid of the bottle!!! Be afraid of your tune!!!
