Volant Cool Air Intake system Offer's a Complete Air Intake system For 2002-2004 3.2L & 3.6L Cadillac CTS.

Cadillac CTS (2004) this is one of our easiest to install kits. The new intake fits like OEM and features a removable top for easy filtration access. You will be able to feel the power improvement in all RPM ranges.

Features

Volant Filter Box: Cross-link polyethylene filter box is engineered to specific design. It insulates and protects the filter from pulling hot air from the engine compartment, thus, increasing horsepower.

Volant Air Duct: Cross-link polyethylene air ducts are sculptured to give the engine a less restrictive air pass to breathe. Larger diameters, unique bends and smooth transitions gives you maximum horsepower and awesome throttle response.

Volant Ram Filter: Cleanable and reusable high grade filter media reduces air restriction and increases engine output. Precision pleat geometry optimizes airflow throughout the intake system.



High Performance Silicon Connectors: High performance silicone hose connectors provides flexibility while maintains strength and thermal stability.

Stainless Steel Clamps:Marine grade clamps allows optimal performance with large operating range and available for virtually any application which requires maintainability and versatility.

:welcome: to the forum:p :D :bouncy:

There is a seperate threads going. Two members have access to the TonyA intake, the Volant and the K&N plus the stock system. They plan to run them all on the dyno to see any HP differences. They are using the 3.2 & 3.6 engines.
I'm betting on the $40 TonyA system but we will soon see . you may wanna wait.

The K&N FIPK and the Volant are similar, except the Volant includes an enclosed airbox. The difference being clean cold air through a snorkel next to the radiator, vs. leaky hot underhood air and noise of the K&N.

HaveBlue will be doing his dyno runs in the coming weeks comparing the stock, TonyA modified stock airbox, the K&N and the Volant, back to back in the 3.6L car. I'll be doing the stock, TonyA, and Volant in a 3.2L car (which incedentally are the same color cars, lowered with Eibachs, and 18' wheels!, LOL) I don't think they made a K&N FIPK for the 3.2l.

i put it on here in 2 posts prior that i was selling it, and that is was going to end up on ebay if not. i didn't get any replies so i figured no one would want it. i'm sure people on here were probably sick of me saying i had one laying around, so i gave up on it. if you know of anything different, by all means let me know. it's basically brand new, used it in the car for 2 weeks, took the car to the dealer for something unrelated, removed, never put back on...i'd like to maybe get 100-140 for it...shipping will only be what it costs and no more.

Since I've got the TonyA now I'm probably not interested, but I might have been if I'd known about it a week ago...

I do have a question about it though, does the FIPK include a tube to straighten out the path from the airbox to the motor? I've never been able to look at one in person, this path seems kind of convoluted so I might be interested if it'd help me out there.

DDS,
You wouldn't want just like we didn't or 3-0 didn't. It's not a good system. Itgets a lot of engine compartment hot air and it whistles. You have the best system and the best price IMO.

I'd imagine the differences will be marginal at best. I've seen similar arguements on other car forums and typically it breaks down to build quality vs. what you can afford.

and what you're willing to spend. I too think it will be close. That seems like a no brainer when you look at $40 vs $250.
I was talking about the Volant vs. K&N. I don't know anything about the TonyA mod. ;) I bought a K&N the first week I had my CTS. :)

You familiar with the K&N? The ones (several) I know, including me removed the K&Ns. A bad choice. TonyA and Volant use similar medium material and style. You must be pretty new to the Forum not to know about the Famous Member Invented TonyA Ram-Air Intake. There are complete instructions on how to do it in the FAQ.:thumbsup:

I joined just last month. I didn't like the Volant I have in my Envoy so I thought I'd try the K&N. Guess I have 2 intakes I won't like now. ;)

The only thing I might want the K&N for would be the pipe running from the airbox to the engine to straighten out that pathway. Now before you all start firing off "damn noob" messages, I know the K&N is supposed to eliminate the factory air box, but I am curious if the pipe from the K&N kit could plug in to the factory box I've modified. Now that I've done the TonyA though, I probably would be willing to pay as much as TripleOught wants for it (and I know how much they cost, I'd want more than I'm willing to pay too).

The Chances of the K&N plumbing and the TonyA Airbox lining up are nill. StealthV has a polished aluminum plumbing over the the OEM V Airbox. I'm not sure what's in the airbox. I imagine a fabric/oil medium like the K&N & Fram AirHog. You may wanna check the V Forum for StealthV. He's a Vendor. I think the our airbox and the V box are similar. I really don't think that minor bend in the plumbing is gonna have any affect IMO. If you feel like doing something, pull your front wheel well panel. You will get a good pic of the air chamber. You will also see spots where dirty air and heated air can enter. I blocked those with black duct tape. My thinking is it might increase the front bumper boost while providing cleaner air.
