See.....I told you the volant was the best. I wouldn't trade mine for any other intake out there.

Hey loudfocus01, I see you’re using an SVT snorkel with your Volant. What did you have to do to make it work? If it doesn’t involve cutting a larger hole in my Volant air box I would be interested to know.

I was storing my stock intake in my parents garage and they somehow lost the snorkel (and nothing else of course) so I need to do something about it, and I thought while I'm at it why not get an upgrade.

As far as I know the SVT snorkel fits with no modification.

Nope, you have to mod the svt snorkle itself. No modifications are done to the volant box.
There used to be a how-to for it, but i can't find it anymore.
You connect the flexible part from a stock zetec intake pipe to the svt snorkle after cutting off
the end part on the svt snorkle.
You can see it in this picture I took above the motor mount:


That flexible section of the zetec intake tube fits the hole on the bottom of the volant box perfect.
I actually bought an already modded svt snorkle that already had this done, but it was
easy to tell what had been modified to make it work.
The svt snorkle made a noticeable difference in the butt dyno, especially on the highway.

I think I found the how-to:
http://www.myfordfocus.com/how-to/volant-svt.htm
I just bought a stock Zetec intake tube and I'm in the process of buying the SVT snorkel from Mike. Thanks for the info.

Also I finally got the breather filter installed. I had to cut the U shaped tube off. It was like melted and fused to the valve cover. There was no way I could have pulled it off by hand. And then the breather filter wasn’t the right size to fit the valve cover either. All the auto parts stores where I live only had one size so I had to use an exacto knife and hollow out the inside of the rubber connector on the filter. Fits nice and snug now.

The opening, and tubing is MUCH bigger than the stock one, which allows much more air into the intake box.

This isn’t the greatest, but now that I have mine in here are some before and after pictures to give everyone an idea of just how big a difference there is in just the size of the two snorkels.

SPI snorkel:



SVT snorkel:



As you can see living on a dirt road has not been kind to me. I miss having a clean engine.

That volant is a very nice piece but I find it hard to believe that it outflows the stock intake that much. $250 is a pretty high price tag for something that nets you less than 10hp and might hurt fuel economy.
