Default Volant CAI and Magnaflow Installed.... Awesome

Wanted to update any other RAM 1500 5.7L Sport members who are thinking about these two basic mods...... bottom line.... DO IT.......

I first installed the Volant the weekend before last and that absolutely made the throttle more responsive. Plus, the added air flow makes the truck sound so much better when you get on it.

Now that I installed the Magnaflow exhaust, it sounds GREAT and I have no doubt that is this combo is making more power. By simply using the very accurate SOTP meter.... (seat of the pants)..... it is way more responsive, sounds great and the tires now break lose when getting on it in situations that didnt happen before......


Diablo..... come on guys..... get that 2011 Tune done.... cant wait for the extra few hundred RPM's, advanced timing curve and stiffer shift points.


Thx
Vinman

sorry frozenfame, I dont know. But I'm sure if you do a "SEARCH" on this forum or go to the Volant web site, you will get the right answer.


Thx

7.08 to 6.5 would seem about the right SOTP improvement I'm feeling when I get on it. Just need to get it tuned, the stock shift points are very conservative.

Thx

awesome to hear man, wanting to change my k&n out for the volant, feel like the boxed in volant would produce cooler air, and with the option to make a ram air attachment done that would also make highway conditions better! need to sell this k&n...lol

I made Huge gains with my Airaid, Magnaflow CatBack and Diablo 93 tune.
...13 second 4x4

The lure of the sealed Volant got my attention,
but the optional lower intake option and the anouncement of the RamAir tube (available Nov./11) finally broke me and decided I need to try one!
Local shops wanted over $600 (in Canada), but a quick search on ebay turned up a new Volant for just $315, so I ordered it on the spot.

I needed something new since I picked up a Huge credit on my card when JBA pulled the plug on my Shorty Header order today.
I already waited 2 months so far with two shipping delays, so Next spring I'll be ordering ARH Long Tube Headers instead.

If there's anything that concerned me about the Volant, its replacement "power-core" filter is almost $90
My Airaid can be recharged for under $12 a year...so I may hang onto that for the off season (Winter/Mid-Summer) and just use the Volant for Race Season (Spring/Fall)
