Okay, I ordered a Volant intake and installed it tonight, well, half way through the process I noticed something VERY weird.... the end of the air tube (where the air comes in from) is a TINY hole instead of a hole the size of the tube (like where the air goes into the throttle body).

Check out these pics...

Now, when I saw it I was like "okay wtf??" but I continued to follow the instructions anyways, and cranked it, listened for noises tightened everything blah blah blah.. then took it for a drive. Well, when I was driving it it felt like I had 10 plastic bags stuck in my air filter, barley any air was getting through!


Anyways, I put my stock air tube back on.. works okay...


SO TELL ME, IS THE HOLE SUPPOSED TO BE THIS SMALL OR IS IT A DEFECT?



ahhh,

Justin :flame:

call them up and offer to email a supervisor the pics directly.

at WORST case you could bore out the hole like it should be, but i have a feeling you will be getting a new tube from volant

Yeah its not suppose to be like that, I installed the whole kit on my lil bros tahoe, with the ram air kit. The whole kit works great just a bit expensive.
