So My Volant Finaly Got Its Cold Air

So i went to CT and picked up a bunch of stuff to make my Volant CAI work better as it is :).
I know that green pad looks funny and all but it will do its part later on


this is what im gonna be using as a hoes for cold air connecting to volant intake


so in between i started paiting this "knee" pad so it matches the color of the car


when that was done i cut it to the shape of Volant's top part (thats right its gonna cover it when the hood is closed so no hot air gets inside) and painted again with the same color (not the best pic)


so to make everything easier, i took drivers side headlight out and started running the hoes


connected it to Volant (no worries that tape is gonna get cut later)


started fixing the hoes with wire ties...there are plenty holes out there for wire ties so to make that black hoes stay in the same place is very easy




now i wanted to run the hoes right beside the fog light, but the plastic part was on the way....well that had to be cut out


here it shows how everything is in the right place


now let me see your grillZz....thats where that cold air is cimming from.....lets see how good it will do in the rain :ph34r:


thats where the cold air is comming out :)


finished product


im gonna finish the the foam later on....i have a plan for it

Good ideas.....I've heard of doing both before, and its not a bad idea. I plan on doing the same with the hose going from the side of the volant box to the front grill. We should definately notice a bit more power from this. As far as rain goes, theres no way rain can get into the volant box from that, the angle is too much, so we should be fine with that. Seeing all these options just shows how badass the volant really is, and can be.

I built something similar to this except I used the stock air box and also attached a scoop on the grill end of the hose. No rain to worry about however if you are getting a good amount of air flow it will throw a check engine light eventually that will have to be tuned out. I know its not accurate but I used a Gtech to check against original and modified. The car picked up 10 hp (torque too) across most of the band and as speed increased horsepower increased over stock as well. I have the graphs and they are stable not squirley looking like alot of Gtech graphs. Before the Gtech we did tempeture testing on the stock air box, header, intake manifold and engine temp, all dropped noticeably. I have the data written down in my log book in the garage. I posted pictures a while back when I wrote up about it. We even made a custom radiator deflector plate out of sheet metal (made a template, cut the metal and put it on a homemade brake). When I get time I'm going to make a mold out of the pipe we used and go all carbon fiber with it (we painted the everything but it would be nice to really not have to worry about rust).
