Volant feedback

I just put a volant on my car (used the K&N recharge before i put it on) and it sounds/works way better than the stock svt air box w/k&n filter. I dont care what "dyno proven" point you bring up, is there even a stock svt dyno comparing the 2? I can stomp it on the highway in 6th and definately feel the difference there and also inbetween shifts it revs up easier. more airflow=more powarrrr

why wouldn't it? mine has absolutely no problem with the vf nor the ram air hood. The volant does nothing but sit in that space.

Is there a stock dyno? Not that I know of. There is a dyno of the two on a JRSC'd SVT though, and the Volant did worse.
