Default Volant cold air intake

Does anyone have one of these. I purchased it off the forum but there were no instructions. I have a few questions [:I]

Gonzo,

I had the Volant system a couple years ago. Here's a picture so maybe it can help you with your question.

Crewzin,
Thanks for the picture. Did you have any trouble latching your hood prop back into its resting place? also the hose that comes from the side of the OEM box with the foam air filter to the manifold what did you do with that?

Gonzo,

If you notice. I had to leave off the rubber surround that parallels the side of the hood so the hood latch could fit between the airbox and the latch. I can't remember a hose with a foam filter, but there was a small plastic hose from the side of the engine that fits into a hole in the black tube.

SteelBluePT,

Thanks..but it doesn't look like that anymore. Here a more up to date pic.

My wife and I went to the movies last night and I got caught. She asked me why my car was making a different sound when I accelerated. Couldn't think fast enough and told her that a box came the other day. I tried to to explain it away about better gas mileage. She didn't buy it! oh well back to the dog house I go Crewzin your under hood looks awesome both ways

Gonzo,

I take it you went from the stock air filter to the Volant? Yea, that would make a heck of a difference in sound, especially when you put your foot down. I also take it that you got the answer to your questions with the hood latch and tube. You need to get yourself some hood supports from Blane. They are the best mod a lot of us have ever made and now they come in almost any color you want. They only made black when I bought them but I covered them in chrome tape. I kept the original hood prop but painted it black so it wouldn't stand out and just keep it latched up on the side.

I took my hood prop out, after installing the hood struts, I was afraid someone might still use the prop rod even with the struts.Then I'd still end up with a dimpled hood!

I hate stealing posts - but Crewzin - where did you get that battery cover in this first picture you posted? I have a intake, and the battery really takes away from the look under my hood.

Thanks, and again - Sorry Gonzo on the post steal!

Matt
