    if you have stock intake and exhaust now, get a lid and a catback, good combo to start.

    Do the exhaust first.

    the loudmouth 1 has a more raw sound to it. the loudmouth 2's is a deeper smoother sound. the volant is probably one of the best CAI's you can get. i would go for the exhaust first tho. thats what i did. both add about the same horsepower.

    the long tube headers are really loud on the loudmouth 1's but the 2's would be fine with long tubes.

    Exhaust first. The car will sound a lot meaner than putting on a CAI.

    Here's the only problem with the Volant CAI and I found out firsthand. If your getting the cold air box, it does seal the box from the engine bay when the hood comes down so yes it's not pulling hot air from the engine bay. However, there really isn't anywhere for the air to get sucked from when the hood is latched down. The Volant CAI box was designed more for Ram Air hoods. You can drill holes to let more air in, but you will want to invest in a Ram Air hood if you do decide to go with the Volant.

    the volant was not made for ram air cars.
    when people buy a volant and have a ram air, they need to add weather strip or something so it seals to the hood.

    The Volant box already comes with a rubber stripping around it that seals it to the hood.

    i know it comes with rubber stripping, i have a volant.
    the ram air hood is raised unlike a t/a hood. thats where the extra weather stripping is needed.
