    I have used K&N FIPK on several of my Suburbans, on the Escalade I went with Volant, the fit, finish and performance is very good, I would buy another one of these for sure

    Does it make the truck sound more rough?

    You get a slight vacuum noise at certain rpm's, but nothing like the vacuum sound you get from the K&N FIPK

    does the k&n or volant affect/void the factory warranty in part or in whole?

    I saw my dealership installing one for a customer, I think it would depend on your dealership

    Dealers Can't Void Your Warranty for Things that Help The Car,
    Meaning Like a Air Intake, The After market air intakes helps the truck breath better makin this Better for your engine, So Dealers cant void it, BUT Lets say you install a Air Intake & A Big Ass BUG Gets thru Your AFTERMARKET Intake system & Causes Engine Damage Then They Can Say "IT WAS NOT OUR FAULT YOUR TRUCK BROKE!" Because you installed a After Market Part Because of that A Bug Got In & Caused Engine Damage,


    But the odds are bugs are not gonna get thru & They won't say crap about it,
    My Dealer Seen Nitrous In My Camaro & He Said if the engine breaks BECAUSE OF THE NITROUS then there not going to fix it, But The starter broke a week later & They fixed it under warranty.

    As for Intakes i Got a Aem Brute Force, it sounds great but it's made from steel vs K&N System thats made from plastic & I Think the steel would hold more heat causeing a loss of HP. But other then that there pretty much the same, If i was going to buy a new one i would buy K&N Intake, The only reason i got the Aem It was used on Ebay for $70 vs 250.00 for a new one.
