The Vararam on the third gen takes a little extra mounting support to make it last. Power wise...it is on top or very near as far as results go. I would get a Volant for the 3rd gen if it were me!

Like Timmy said, gearing will help you accelerate quicker. It's a torque multiplier. Just be careful because there is a such thing as over gearing.

I cannot comment on the vararam but on the volant for 4th gen I can and it is ALL bad the fit just sucks for a 400 dollar plus part the response to my several emails was ZERO... no reply whatsoever! If you want a volant I'd sell you mine and buy the vararam in a heartbeat

I'm ready to pull the trigger also, I've installed a CAI on my previous 2 hemis and I'm well aware of the benefits that the RAM will recieve.
Based on the reviews of so many others (especially you CRASH) I will NOT buy the Volant. I'm not paying that kind of cash for a part with a design flaw.

The Vararam seems like it has great functionality, I'm just not ready to stick that thing on there.

I'm considering waiting for the S&B Filters CAI system to be released. I like the enclosed design, and it appears to be a high quality piece of equipment at a reasonable price. Other than they get released on 3-15-12, Does anyone have any feedback on these?

That S&B looks really nice, I would wait. If I never was able to get my BFI I would get one of those!

speaking on behalf of the third gens, I put a Volant on mine and won't turn back. the fit is a little off for the box yes, but once everything is tightened down it doesn't move at all.. the benefits of it are more than evident. I coupled it with my Flowmaster exhaust (both were installed same day) and I couldn't be happier with the increase from these two mods. so for a third gen, though i might be slightly biased, i did take the time to pour through all the threads about CAI's and for the third gen it seems the Volant is the best to do. i even put a write up of the install, it's easy as can be (besides a drop in of course they are the easiest)

I just installed the Volant in my 2011 and it was definitely a trying experience. The instructions were not the greatest especially for someone like me who has no experience with mods. Thanks to Brad12kx and his thread which helped out a lot!!!
http://ramforumz.com/showthread.php?...volant+install

I did have some trouble getting the Volant to fit at first but now that it's in place, it's not going anywhere. Mine actually fits pretty well once I got it under the AC pipe. I just hope I never have to remove it now. =)

After the install, I started my baby up and noobie me was expecting to hear a difference. It wasn't until I got on the road and let it open and man does it sound so much better. So take your time (and a few beers) with the install and I guarantee you will be happy.

Like I said, I am a noobie here so I have no basis for comparison with other CAIs. I just like the look and the massive PowerCore filter of the Volant. I could have sat on the boards all day going back and forth, like I am currently doing for other mods , so I just pulled the trigger on the Volant. And I got my Volant for under $300 with free shipping/
