    Cool Volant CAI

    Hi,

    Thinking about putting in a Volant CAI. Likes / dislikes? Will the service engine light come on because the engine is not used to that much air?

    Thanks

    I have the Dual Volant air induction and love it, sucks so much air through it to the 102 fast throttle body and 102 intake that some people hearing it think it's supercharged. lol

    There are members here who run the Volant setup and have no complaints.

    No check engine light should occur.

    Just don't do anything silly like descreen the MAF.

    I ran the dual cone on my SS, never had any trouble out of it. I liked how you could hear the air being sucked it when you hit the throttle. i also liked how much cleaner it was since my car was no longer a bottom feeder.

    I'll be the first to vote in the dislike column

    That's the ugliest looking filter setup I've ever seen.

    Nope. They don't it has to seal to the hood to work properly. I honestly don't like the Volant mainly because the fitment to me was horrible. Not to the car but that the "lid" was two pieces so there was a huge potential for air leaks and I could never get the neck to sit how I wanted it. If it was 1 piece I would definitely love it, that and if they had a 102 or 104 version to match up with my tb and intake so there is no or virtually no turbulence and or restrictions in the intake tract. I sold mine to go with a FTP 104 lid.

    I was curious if it fit with the 102 setups...any modifications to make it fit? Are you running a MAF or not?

    Yes technically but the neck opening at least on the one I had was only 85mm. So 85 to 102 equals a good amount of resistance.

    I had a minor fitment issue, the filter body, MAF, and TB didn't line up QUITE right, but it worked just fine
