    I have an 09 silverado 1500 4x4 crew cab. I dont know much about the mechanical side of trucks, so I'm hoping to pick everyones brain on modifications before I put them on my truck. So far all I have done is put a flowmaster exhaust on it, but I will be posting some questions soon. I look forward to everyones advise.

    I think my next mod is going to be a cold air intake. I know K&N is very popular, but I have been reading about the Volant with the power core dry filter and the Injen power flow intake. I like the idea of a dry filter. Injen seems like it is more custom tuned to specific vehicle, but Volant is advertising more horsepower and torque improvement. Has anyone tried either of these on a newer silverado 1500. I have an 09 with the 5.3 V8.

    Welcome aboard! There are quite a few members here who have experience with the Volant CAI and absolutely love it. I have yet to hear anything bad about them. In fact, it may just be the next mod for my 09 as well! Look around the 'Performance and Fuel' sub forum and you'll find plenty of threads about the Volant CAI. You can also try doing a search to find some more information. Just search "volant" and that should yield you plenty of results. Other than that, i'm sure others who know a thing or two about them will chime in here. Best of luck and again, welcome to GMTC!

    Thanks for the links Vincennes. I ended up getting the injen pf7060 on eBay. Just waiting for it to get her so I can install. I'll update when I get it on.
