Volant or ICE MAN
I have had my volant on order for awhile and I'll get it tomorrow.[:D]. But I wanted to see which CAI you people think is better. I have yet to see any numbers on either, I would guess that's because most people don't Dyno their cars with just the CAI mod. How much is the Volant going to produce? Is it going to be noticeable? All I have for mods to the engine now are the Magnaflow CAT back.

I have the volant as far as of # I dont know, but I can tell you that my but-dyno felt a difference with it!!

either or if u ask me. i have the volant and love it. ice man was dynoed at most torque. both are great, if u get the ice man make sure u pick up the itg panel filter. biggest advantage for the volant would be a cone filter and u can upgrade to a functional ram air hood. but ice man looks stock if u have tough cops over there and the itg filter will flow comparable to the cone.

Euro, doesn't the ICE MAN make more torque? Cause I'm thinking of ditching my MAC and going with that one.

Do you know what the number are on it drewzx3? jus curious if you do.

The Iceman loses any advantage it had as soon as you make more mods.
The flat panel filter cannot flow as well as the conical on the volant. Plus the volant simply gets more airflow.

Thanks Focal, that I didn't know. (The Iceman loses any advantage it had as soon as you make more mods.) So instead of getting the Iceman, I should just get a Volant? What makes the Volant stand out better then the rest anyways? Is it because of that box type thingy? and how the air comes up underneath that hole and has the hole on the top to breath easier? JW.

its just the top design. ill be posting about a new ITG intake soon gotta wait for some things first. but the volant has a # of advantages... build quality, can upgrade maf to 70mm with little work, ram air hood (only way hole on top is functional) upgradable to SVT Snorkel, with some work maybe even an ITG filter (im workin on that right now) and it has the second runner off the side... which believe it or not, u can upgrade too (with dryer hose nuttin huge)
