    Default Volant (well CSI) CAI Review

    Hey guys, i know im new here but just like all of you i couldnt wait to mod my truck. I put my Volant CAI on today and i will say that i am more than pleased with the results. I did the install and it was easy and quick. The only complaint i have is the predrilled holes in the bottom one of the bolt holes did not line up. And Also you can get one of the lid screws in because of the fender but thats ok with me. It sounds great and i deffinently noticed a difference in the seat of th pants dyno. Ill let you know about fuel mileage increases too. As far as me saying imeant CSI, it is built by volant, the filter even says volant on the side, the only difference is the color of the silicone sleeve, and the design on the lid. Other than that it is an awsome product, and i will get some pics of it up asap

    I know that the one i put on my dads 05 (volant also) has a very deep growl to it. As far as the one on my truck it is hard to tell i mean i can hear it above 3500 RPM, and when heavy on the throttle. But i also have an exhaust done so that kind of hides it. But i will say this much, that when the computer does give the engine full power (above 3000 rpm) it really is a kick in the but. Honestly it almost feels like a small nitrous hit. With the intake and the exhaust together, it really makes a big difference.
