I was wondering if the volant intake is any better than the K&N. I had a K&N on my 2000 excab and liked it. I was wondering what the volant is like.
The ram air tube sucks from behind the tow hook opening. :read:I have looked at the Volant w/ ram air but I don't think it will work on my because my truck has fog lights
That's not true - The rubber lip seals away the engine compartment when the hood is closed.The ram air tube sucks from behind the tow hook opening. :read:
The FIPK is not a true CAI, is it? I haven't seen an FIPK in-person, but my understanding is it sucks hot air from the engine compartment because it doesn't have a closed-lid box.
Here's a dyno chart off of Outlaw's site comparing it (being a closed-lid CAI) to a heat-shielded open element filter and the stock air intake, for what it's worth.That's not true - The rubber lip seals away the engine compartment when the hood is closed.
I monitor my IAT via EFILive - On a 80ºF day, my IATs are around 90ºF - Typically 10º warmer than the ambient outside air temperature. There will obviously be some amount of heat soak - as under hood temps are typically 150º-160ºF on a warm sunny day, and the plastic composition of the intake tube and mass air flow sensor (where the IAT sensor is located) will conduct some of this radiant heat.
