I got home afterwork yesterday to find my new Volant waiting for me (got my tracking notice at noon actually)
....was going to wait until the weekend to install so I could fab up a lower pipe ram-air feed with the help of Home Depot's plumbing department.
While eating my supper and browsing over my instructions, I decided it would be about a 5-10 minute job to swap it with my Airaid...Yup!

Done deal and no fitment issues, although it is a tight squeeze.
I just re-used the Airaid breather hose and dont use my stock engine cover ( because its just a huge Heat Trap) so that really helps.

I know, pics...or it didn't happen lol!





a little foam rubber pipe insulation to seal to the fender opening...




before pic:


Track testing to follow next week... going to compare a stock box with K&N drop-in, to Airaid and the Volant on two different 4G Hemi Rams.
Time slips will prove which is better (if any), I'm guessing it will be close.

The Volant is the Best looking CAI by a long shot, and sealed so I can wash my engine bay at the car wash without having to worry about the filter element getting wet.

In November the lower optional lower scoop is scheduled for release...

(silverado version)


I've already opened up my lower bumper for a Ram air to use with a "Home Depot Special"until it arrives
