There are many cool air intake kits on the market, but how many deliver what they promise? All claim to position the air filter where it will draw in cool air. Some include barriers that are supposed to shield the air filter from engine heat. Only Volant features a sealed Cool Airbox that thoroughly insulates and protects the air filter from engine heat, moisture, dust and debris.
The engineers at Volant designed the Cool Airbox to house a large free-flowing Donaldson's® PowerCore® Filtration Technology air filter. This filter increases engine airflow while also increasing filtration efficiency. It works by directing air into the front of the filter, where it's channeled into its fluted design. The channels are alternately sealed, allowing air to enter through an open flute and forcing it to exit out an adjacent flute. This allows the air to be filtered in one pass through the filter media with less restriction. Airflow is increased and filtration is improved up to 99.97%! The airbox air intake is located so the air filter can only draw in cooler, ambient air. Access to the air filter for servicing is provided by an attractive polished aluminum or carbon fiber look lid.
From the airbox, cool air proceeds to your engine through Volant's Cross-Link polyethylene air duct. Unlike OEM air ducts that have sound baffles and make awkward bends, the Volant air duct is sculptured to give the engine less restrictive breathing, incorporating larger diameters and unique bends that can't be duplicated with metal ducts. (Also, unlike metal ducts, the polyethylene Volant air duct doesn't conduct engine heat right into the intake airflow, thereby defeating the purpose of a cool air intake!) The end result is maximum airflow velocity and quicker throttle response.
Every Volant Cool Air Intake Kit comes complete with everything necessary for installation, including comprehensive installation instructions. All clamps and connectors are made from quality materials. The Silicone connectors provide flexibility while maintaining strength and thermal stability; they won't crack or deform over time like rubber connectors. The marine-grade stainless steel clamps provide a solid seal that won't loosen or deteriorate.
The Volant Cool Air Intake Kit is backed by a one-year warranty. The Donaldson's® PowerCore® Filtration Technology air filter is guaranteed for 4 years or 100,000 miles when used in urban conditions.369.48

Product does all it claims. Car sounds great too. It was pretty tough to install because of the tight fit and the angles, but I have to say it was worth it. CARiD is a pretty good, one stop shop. I'll be back.Was this review helpful for you? YesNo(5)APPEARANCEEASE OF INSTALLATIONPRICE/VALUEQUALITYVolant is Strong| Posted by Gerald S. | 2004 Cadillac CTS (Edinburg, TX)
The Volant cold air intake was delayed a couple days, but I didn't mind once I heard and felt the power of the Volant. Installation was a little bit of a challenge, every part fitted each other perfectly, the problem was the airbox assembly fitting in the space given, but was nonetheless doable. As soon as it was installed, I revved the engine and could not help but smile in amazement, it was better than I could have imagined! The sound was incredible, and has a mean growl. Next, I took it to the streets, floored it from 20 to 70, and got pushed back very forcefully and about twice as hard as usual, maybe more, the engine roared hardcore, I haven't been able to report fuel efficiency for highway mileage, but I get 1-1.5 better mileage in the city. Hope this helps you in buying a Volant because I undoubtedly believe they make the best :)Was this review helpful for you?

I would have been excited to start putting after market parts on my Cadillac CTS. I researched Volant and decided hands down they were the ones I would use. Then I was informed it would void my warranty so...sad not to improve my performance. But the ordering and the return part of the process went well and I was returned all my money.Was this review helpful for you?

The intake does all that was claimed...an additional 4 mpg and the sound is excellent. I can really notice a big difference in performance with the additional hp. Installation was not simple but was doable. I did need to slightly reem out one of the holes for all to come together and the hose to gasket to box bolts would have been much easier to put together if they were 1/8 inch longer. The instructions are pretty cryptic.Was this review helpful for you?

Great quality product. Holes for the MAF did not quite match, so had to file holes a little bigger. Product looks great in the engine compartment. Now engine has a nice little growl to it when accelrating. Seems like it has a bit more power in the upper rpm range. Not stats yet as far as improved mileage (trying to keep my foot off the gas, really like the sound). Would buy product again.Was this review helpful for you? YesNo
