Default Cold air intake/programmer chip

Whats going on? I have a 09, 4.7L. I want to throw a CAI on mine and was recommended to go Volant? Does anyone know how good of a brand that is, about how much HP it may offer and any other good details I may want to know? Also, I would like to know what a good programmer chip is for my truck? Any recommendations?

Hello and welcome to the ForumZ ! I have a K&N Intake on my 4.7, although I wanted to go with a Volant kit it is not available for 08 Models yet. I have read quite a few posotive reviews on them from members, but I'm unsure about the HP number increase. I've only read a couple minor negatives on the fitment of them, but only a couple. All others seem very happy with them and the fitment and IMO are one of the best looking out there, Good Luck !

I've had several Volant kits. They are good ones. I never measured the gains I got with them, though. They are well made and install without any fitment issues.

I've got a buddy with the volant on his '06 4.7L. It sounds great, and looks good under the hood at all. He's been really happy with it. I think any of the big name intake are all going to be good quality. I believe Airaid & K&N both have dyno results on theri websites.

My friend w/ a volant on his 4.7 loves it looks to be solid and for a programer Id suggest superchips or diablo idiot proof quick easy power but still have some more advanced options if wanted
