While I was at it I decided to open up the bottom front corner of the airbox in an effort to get as much flow as possible. I also added some silicon sheeting to replace the odd stock rubber piece on the front of the stock box. The additional sheeting seems to deflect more air into the box.
    No, but I've been thinking about doing something simiilar with my LPE-- like some kind of sheeting to act as a louver to direct air from in front of the rad into the air box. If you cold post pics of what you did that would be, um, rad

    Re: volant cold air intake

    Nice Thread...I've been trying to locate a Volant CAI for my '12, w/ no luck.

    So, I wrote Volant to see if, they had any info on the CAI for my 2012 CTS-V and haven't herd anything back, yet.

    I've had the Volant CAI on my 2010 Silverado Z71 for a couple of yrs. now and really like it.

    Re: volant cold air intake

    I used the volant tube with LPE CAI box, it worked the best for me. However, i am now taking it up a notch, with a 102mm Maf and custom heat shield.

    Given my situation where i dont have much room between the pulley and radiator, i am relocating the heat shield about an inch and a half to the right, then addin in a 45* elbow with custom short filter from AFE. Will post pix once i get the car back from the body shop. Having a new side skirt installed, they broke the old one while install my new front fenders.

    BTW, anything is better than stock, and if you search the forum you will find DIY setups where they show similar gains but at a frction of the cost. The only big problem with the volant is installin it between the larger ron davis rad and tb. then lining it up so it doesnt rub on the ps pulley...

    Taking it off is too easy...

    This is the best pic I have on my phone but I will try to get one that is a little more zoomed in.

    I'll try to get something a little better. It is just the silicone intake tube split and screwed into the volant box. It comes out even with the front of the AC coil.

    I have a volant and Maggie with your radiator and it all fits, very close fit but it fits.

    I forgot to add I am using a MUCH larger filter and 4" silicon intake tube. Finished product below.

    I had to use two 45 degree elbows cut them to adjust the angle between the TB and intake tube and couple them together.
