Yes my Volant was the kit with a box that has openings to the front and towards the fender. The k&n only has a heat shield around the tube and doesn’t stop hot air from the engine from getting in. I think that the K&N and Volant are both expensive for what they do, but you are paying for the name. I made a intake for a 4 cyl Dakota out of pvc pipe and couldn’t see any difference when I replaced it with a k&n.
