hardly any hp increase. a lot of expense for imo an ugly plastic box that gains 1 or 2 hp

it's slightly better than say using a k&n filter in a stock airbox.

it's not bad. just hard to justify the price it is.

I would suggest either the Injen, AEM or Weapon R intake systems. Go a company that has a rep not just some fansy design

naa...Fujita F5...the quality of their intake is unsurpassed. Darren is right, you will see minimal gains on a n/a setup with the Volant. With a f/i setup you might net about 6whp which is a lot better than 1-2. I know of someone that was using the volant on their supercharger setup but it was nothing to drool over.

Yup, F5 Fujita!!!!!!!

And here I fibreglassed a duct to work in conjunction w/ the foglight cover/insert and never went into production with it.

I guess I should get the protoytpe and its mold back, and see if I can 'glass up a few more pieces.

trust me . ask anyone in the scion community it does not get 8 hp.......


any dyno sheet can be doctored , any dyno run can be very , very wrong. their design is virtually the same as everyone elses and their filter utilizes teh same design. you really think that magically it just gets approx 4 hp more? you must be high.

i'm not being a prick. you can doubt me and believe a companys info which I can guarrantee you is BIASED. they wouldnt post up lower than correct number would they? but sure as hell they wouldnt mind upping their numbers.


I know i'm not wrong so i'm not going to admit i'm wrong and move on.

sounds good. did you dyno on a perfectly stock car?

no ac either run?

same exact ambient temperature?

same exact oil and coolant temperature?

probably not. dyno's are not that reliable unless done professionally in closed off extremely particular environments.

if the k&n really had double the horsepower coupled with it's lower cost. why would anyone buy another brand? and why would the k&n actually be one of the LEAST popular xB intake?

we ran it stock 3 times with just the intake , not too sure about the oil and coolant temp. i let the pro's take care of that. I trust these guys and their machines, but obviously you don't

wow, someone knows how to take their anger out on the world......

can we TRY to get back on topic here...if you don't like it, you don't like it, super

i've always been happy with just a drop in filter honestly, and i'm not going for too much performance out of the toaster ;-)
