Well got the Volant today, and just finished getting it installed. Man what a pain in my @ss to install it. A friend would of helped a whole lot! I havent driven the car yet, but it looks good in the bay, and the slurp slurp sound of the intake has already got me jones'n to drive it. throttle response seems improved - little better free revs- anyone else feel the same way?

Volants cause nut cancer. Or something else less deadly but I can't remember.

Sorry, 04ctsvfla, go to pep boys or similar autoparts store and you can find something that will work. You could also use a soft silicone tubing (clear) that you can glue to the lid, that may work great.
Good luck,

just cuz u dont got one, dont piss on it
I had one, it gave me 4 horsepower with a pcm tune, let's see, at $300, that was $75 per horsepower, what a bargain.:suspense: :suspense: :suspense: :suspense: :suspense: I did not figure in dyno or tune time.

Go to the hardware store and get a very thin weather stripping for the top and the thick stuff if you wish to seal the side against the ineer fender wall.

Ya but Urby speaks the truth. Is it that hard to spend 60 seconds doing a search prior to starting a new thread? The weekly 'Corsa vs. B&B, which should I get' threads get old.

To actually ad to this thread. I got the following numbers from the LPE CAI that I installed:

Peak Gain:
+8.9 RWHP 3% Gain (295.5 @6150 vs. 304.4 @6350)
+2.8 RWTQ 1% Gain (285.2 @4900 vs. 288.0 @4850)
