Nice job Brad. I really didn't have any problems with mine, but it looks like you sorted yours out.

What Brad, your engine cover is not painted yet. Well an excellent write-up like that and all the agrevation you went through to get it installed properly deserves a healthy amount of Rep points. However, the system won't let me "something about spreading them around"
You should seriously give Volant a call and ask if you can join their design team. Well done, keep these great DIY Mod instructions coming.

I had the same problem with the Volant not matching up to the opening in the fender well. What a horrible design flaw for something as expensive as it was.

Very well done. Thanks for the pics and the patience to post them here for us. A thread like this make me think about buying a CAI instantly, lol. Very shortly everybody going to start to blame you instead Maddog for craving to do MODS.

Nice job Brad. I can't agree with you more about the poor R&D Volant did here but what do you expect from a company that couldn"t even get their name right side up on their own product lol. By the way don't even bother emailing volant with your thoughts/opinions, you won't get any answer! I am working on a ram air duct for mine now and will post up pics once I get it just right. cause I will not give volant ANY more of my money

Your is 3rd gen....which apparently they got right. It's us 4th gen owners that have to contend with a bit of 'Close Enough' attitude.

Yup....I was less then impressed. IMO, a premium product should pay attention to the fit and finish details, as well as the performance aspect.

Well....if they do that, I'll make sure the blame falls in the right lap.

Even so, I think I will write them anyway. If they choose to ignore this....well....that will be 'Their' business decision. I will include a link to this thread, as there are a few posts that support my disappointment.

Really nice install, and great post. Thanks for sharing the experience. A quick question if you'll indulge a novice question (and one I could probably get an answer to in search I'm admittedly too impatient to perform): What swayed you to the Volant CAI over others available on the market? No judgment from me as I am wholly unfamiliar with all of them - just curious to know as I contemplate one.

Thanks!
