Well I finally got the Volant air intake kit today and I started the install. I had problems in every single step of the way with this kit install. It has the most components out of any kit on the market for Explorers which is good, because I'm sick and tired of the standard MAC-type "kit" fare.
But every single part of this install was really a PITA. HOWEVER, I must say that I wouldn't use any other kit. I'm so glad I got rid of that MAC intake tube and the KKM air intake. I was not satisfied with that setup.
This air intake kit sounds great...it's just barely audible over the exhaust though normally. It sounds mean as hell though, a hell of a lot better then most aftermarket air intake setups I've used or interacted with. That's the next thing that will be replaced - the flowmaster exhaust - with a Gibson.
