Volant Upgrade
Took a drive to the border yesterday to pick up a couple of packages, this was in one of them. I have to say that although it looks and sounds very nice, for the price I did expect a little better quality as far as fitment. The pins that the air box sit on the fender are very highly stressed to get them both on and when attached to both pins the air tube does not line up with the throttle body. You need to pull the air tube partially out of the air box to make it line up with the throttle doby then tighten the hose clamps (over 2" behind). And lastly the box does not mate with the fender at the bottom leaving a large gap there to suck warm air from under the hood. It just seems to me when you pay that much for a product supposedly designed for your truck it should fit A LOT BETTER. That said I will fool with it and make something to seal it up to the fender better. I just hope it performs better than it fits. As it is I would not recomend this product to a friend as it is. jmho

i have an 2005 with the volant cai i did see some improvement with performance and the fit was perfect sorry you had problems hope the performance makes up for the problems but if nothing else it looks awsome.

I've gotta chime in and say I did not have any of the issues you described. I have been completely satisfied with the quality on my 09.

here are a couple of pics of what I encountered during install

I sure I can tweak this to fit better, I just feel for the money I shouldn't have to

Sorry you have had issues, I have heard all good reviews on the Volant until yours.

Sorry to hear you are not 100% satisfied. That is a lot of money spent to not be perfectly happy with a product.

Do you have a write up on how you got your hemi letters to light up?

Crash 03-02-2011 05:29 PM

Yeah I detailed that project here at "hemi hat sneak peak" anything else you'd like to know feel free to ask, I'll help you out any way I can

All modding takes a bit of tweaking. Once you get this one tweaked I think you'll like it. I've used Volant systems on 3 vehicles and they worked well.

Good Luck!
