    Angry Volant on WS6

    Ok so i'm pretty pissed because i got my blackwing from my camaro and bought an amsoil EA filter for the new WS6 and the angle of the raised lower airbox put too much stress on the plastic clips and broke one off of the lid. I would love to put another lid back on it to keep the use of my new filter but all the other lids out there look relatively cheap in quality to me.

    This stuff has been over more than enough times and i feel like i've been through the whole intake stage but this is really annoying me right now.
    So i was wondering if anyone out there has a WS6 with a volant airbox. I know it's made for all fbodys but i want to know if the raised airbox changed the fit at all and if you had to modify anything, what and where did you have to do it?

    The Blackwing fit like a glove on my Z28 but fits like crap on the WS6
    If anyone has any suggestions throw em at me
    Thanks

    I think BADASS200SS has the Volant in his SS.

    Yup he's got one but he doesn't have the WS6 lower airbox on his. It looks good on his but i have heard complaints about fitment issues.

    The Volant replaces the Lower Air Box.
