Default New Volant just installed

Well guys I just installed my new Volant CAI. Very easy to install only took 30-40 minutes. I will take it for a drive tomorrow and post some pics. Just started it in the driveway and you really cant hear it at idle. The quality is amazing. After I was done I just stood there staring at it.

It's my first real mod. I also have a Jet 180 T Stat and a Sonnax line pressure booster.

I went for a drive today and I was very surprised how quite it is until you get on it. Then it sounds amazing. The best was I can describe it is it sounds angry. I would actually like a little for sound from it at idle but I am still very impressed. Throttle response is a little better and there is a noticeable difference in power.
Hopefully I will see an improvement in my gas mileage too.
Now I'm just waiting for my Fastman throttle body and Billet Tech catch can to get here.

There is a slight difference with the Sonnax but not what I was expecting. It is a faster shift but not any harder of a shift. I guess its not bad for 40 bucks.
