Volant Intake installed.

So i got my volant CAI in. I will say i do love it. I am not going to say its totally noticeable HP gain being well thats mental ************. I wil say it makes a nice noise at 3500 - 6000. I see a little less throttle lag, it also makes this sort of whistling noise like a turbo spool or a blow off valve on one.

I have noticed mpg gains though, I am getting close to 19 mpg on winter fuel where i was getting 16 maybe 17.

It was simple to install, comes with a new air box and the suction holes are alot bigger than stock and sit on the fender side as well as behind the headlight. That way it limits the hot air it takes in.

Great product so far, I would recommend this to anyone looking for an intake that is not K&N.

Another thing is i drove all day on it one day.. popped the hood to show a friend and the tubing was not even hot.

I can't believe you got a gain in MPG that accounts for 2-3 MPG.

Any pictures of said setup?

I dont see why it wouldnt. But you could always call Volant I am sure and get a true answer.

The problem with the 04 and up trucks is that they use the slide in style MAF sensors that go into the tube not into its own housing. It won't work on your 06.

Thanks, I have seen some for around $200 which isnt too bad. usually i find em 250 - 300.

Filter is HUGE though. I can hear it sucking in at idle.

Well I saw this intake and I kind of like it. If I do anything, performance wise, to this truck I may skip on the Volant. Ignore the circle.

I dont like the idea of the filter be exposed.. hence the recent K&N incident with sucking water. nothing against k&n just the idea of sucking in water. especially where it snows and slushs alot.

Its not exposed. If you have inner fenders its protected.
