LMAO you gotta love American horse power! Way to go! I'm thinking of making my own air ram scoop when it comes in. Shouldn't be to terribly hard but we'll see in about a week. I'm really looking forward to it! Now that I have the input of air, I'm working on the export of it with some headers and muffler. We'll see how that goes later this year. A few projects stand in my way before that expense is taken on. Thank you to everyone for your support and comments! I'll let everyone know how the install goes and post up some pics!

According to UPS, my volant should be here tomorrow sometime. The weather is suppose to be gorgeous so there shouldn't be any issues with installing. Just as long as it is what it was advertised as. (Always weary about ebay sales). I'll have PLENTY of pictures for everyone and am going to go out and clean the engine bay up this afternoon. I hate anticipation! LOL

Ok, the big day has arrived. My Ebay SPECIAL arrived with no issue and actually a day earlier than originally expected. I saved over $100 on this deal from ebay and it is great. Came with the PowerCore Filter, which is the dry filter and never will need oiled! Installation wasn't to horrible! Worst part of it was taking off the old air "system". I'll do my best to write this review, however I neglected to take a few pictures but I think everyone will get the main idea of it all. Really didn't take much, just be sure you have the proper tools to make everything easy.

On with the installtion:

What you need:

Screwdriver and socket/wrench set
Volant CAI
About 3' of 3/8" ID 5/8" OD air hose (more on this later, which will have to be purchased at you local hardware store. About $3.00 worth)
Original temperature sensor
Original rubber coupling from stock breather hose
Maybe a cold drink, if you're thirsty

Take one more look at your engine bay, it is now going to change forever for the better!



First take the box

and unpack it


Unsnap the stock filter box lid and remove the filter


Unscrew the 2 screws that hold the box to the inside of the engine bay and remove the filter box. Just lift up and wiggle a little and it'll come out. You'll be leaving the grey box holder.


Remove the tubing that goes to the "hat" on top of the throttle body then remove the hat. This was probably the most difficult part of the demolition as I had to climb into the engine bay to unscrew the clamps on the throttle body.



This is what you should be left with.


Now on to the INSTALLATION!

Take the rubber reducer and put it over the throttle body. Clamp down the clamp.


Next take the Filter box and put it in place of where the old filter box was. Go ahead and leave the top off as you'll need access to the inside later. Basically it just sits down around the "stems" that stick up from where the old filter box was. There is no tie down of the box itself.
<sorry no pic>

Take the original temperature sensor and put in in the rubber gromet that is located on the Air Duct. Make sure you put it all the way in, past the blue rubber gasket.

Take the Air Duct and put it through the large opening on the Filter box. It only goes in one way so the other end then gets coupled to the Rubber reducer by way of the clamp. Tighten down the clamp.


Next put the filter over the Air Duct and clamp it down as well.


This is where I ran into an issue. Normally you would hook up the breather hose to the Air Duct and be done, however they only send you a 6" piece of hose that has to reach from the left side of the truck to the right side of the Air Duct. You can see in the picture where the stock breather hose is (by the oil stick) and where it needs to connect on the far side of the picture on the Air Duct.


Simple solution is buying about a 3' long "air hose" from your big box hardware store. I trimmed mine down to about 2.5'. I also used the original rubber coupling from the stock breather hose and cut the larger end off. It's a coupling that is "L" shaped and goes from 3/8" to 3/4". I cut the 3/4" part off and slid the new air hose into the 3/8" side. The other side of the coupling goes into the stock breather hose. Loop the new hose to the nipple on the Air Duct.

Attach the temperature sensor harness to the sensor.

Your end result will look like this (or similar)



The last thing you have to do (before driving) is figuring out what to do with this:


I made my decision very easily! LOL

These instructions should help some people who, when looking at the instructions sent, should help eliminate some confusion. This is the instruction page I had to follow.


Now that it's installed, starter up and let her rip! I've included a few videos of me on the highway and what it sounds like stomping on it. You can really hear it then, but I also notice it just going up a gentle hill so there is definately some power gain. I'm going to finish out my 1/2 tank of gas and see what kind of MPG gains I can get. For now though, Imma let her RIPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP!

Feel free to ask any questions you may have and I'll do my best to answer them as soon as I can! Thanks for reading my review! Now enjoy the video's! Oh, you may need to turn up the speakers a bit!

Great write up Looks great on there, and you won't be disappointed with the gains you'll get.
