I just replaced my TonyA system with the Volant. I thought maybe somebody with limited funds would be interested in my TonyA. I took my time and did it right. I would need your air box in exchange as I'll remove the Volant when I eventually sell the CTS. I also ask you to cover the UPS fee. Here's a few pics:

3xo,
Did you take your idea to Reed regarding some sort of fit in the FAQ section? I think your idea has merit. Reed is a bright guy and has some programming savey.

Robert is that a better set up tan my stock , and if so will it fit my 3.6 where its a 06 model ??
No changes from '04 to '06 Boston. It's an easy swap. The AirHog Filter costs $40 alone.

According to the dyno results, it gives about a 5HP increase.

I haven't had the time to check the UPS rate. This was the cheapest HP per dollar in the contest.

If I recall Robert e-mailed me the stuff if I still have it. I'll put it into a html file, and I can host it if we can get it put into the FAQ.

BTW, how do you like the sound Rob?

A tad quieter in the mid rpm range. I like it.

Boston,
I imagine you might see some fuel mileage increase. This would be a "plug and play" as all the work has been done to the airbox.
UPS says a package that size should be about $15. The AirHog alone is worth $40. You can see by my cuts on the box it was done well.

If you don't want it Boston i'll take it
BELIEVE ME THE TONYA MOD WITH THE CTS-V EXHAUST SOUNDS GREAT!

The box the Volant came in should fit the OEM box perfectly. I don't need the MAF or the induction box near the intake manifold. We can share the same box.

Bob

So how do you like it?
I think I made a good buy PJ. You know how crazey I can be. I removed the Volant plaque and replaced it with the Caddy logo and wreath. My parts guy will think it's stock!!:D
