Volant CAI

Figure I would start a new thread about this CAI.

So does any one have any leads on where to buy on yet?

I found it through New Level Motor Sports.

Price seems on par from what I have paid in the past. Yeah shipping sucks but that's what you get for living in Alaska. Let's hope they actually have it and they ship it out tomorrow.

Re: Volant CAI

Has anyone ever used the PowerCore filter? They don't look like they would be less restrictive than a cloth filter, or even a stock paper one. Maybe the pictures are misleading. This kit looks awesome though, Probably sounds awesome.

I have and they worked great as far as I could tell.

Re: Volant CAI

The donaldson powercore filters started showing up in the diesel truck world a few years ago. Major advantages were flow levels did not degrade as the filter got loaded with dirt, and the design could trap and hold significantly more dirt than conventional pleated designs. They are oem on the ford powerstroke and scorpion diesels now, and have something like a 60k change interval. Good technology, not reuseable though, you will have to buy a new one eventually.

Well it's in the hands of FedEx. Should be here Thursday sometime. I'll keep y'all posted.

PS the Jeep is really liking the cold air (19-30) we have now up here. Lots more power than when it was 50-60 out.

Re: Volant CAI

i wonder how much more air this thing will allow to be pulled by the engine since the inlet hole is basically the same size as the current snorkel hole with a K&N. I also wonder how much louder this will be over my K&N drop in with stock guts. Because I like that, but louder is better. who doesn't want a snorting cherokee at WOT?
