you are going to need oil once you clean the filter so I would pick up some filter oil anyways.

Does the Volants have those neat boxes to surround the filter for colder air? Or are they open filter?

It's a closed box so it will be a little quieter than an open element system. You can see a pic here. Last one on the bottom:

the volant uses a closed box design that pulls cooler air from the stock location. It also helps to cut back on the noise of the intake and helps cure annoying harmonic noises that are common on aftermarket intakes.
