Anyone tried this air intake?

Just wondering if anyone has tried this air intake? I am starting to look into what I want to buy down the road for performance parts and came accross this.

It looks kind of cool, but I dont think you will see a gain over an S&B or AFE intake for half the cost.

looks a lot like RBP intake, i'd stick with AFE or S&B since they're both proven and cheaper. But then again, it would be cool if you got that and tested it out for us!

The scoop is a PITA to install. I suggest the S&B or AFE.

Thanks for all the feedback. I would have to see an increase in hp to justify the price. Thats why it never hurts to get others opinions.

I don't have experiences with Volant on diesels but I do with gas engines.

Every Volant intake made minimal increases and in cases of Ford Lightnings they actually lost power.

Does it pertain here? idk, but from my dyno experiences I'd stay away from Volant

Reminds me a little of the cowl induction intakes that was used on the old mustle cars late 60's and 70's. The idea was to get 100% charge from air outside the engine compartment

I have been in the Lightning scene for 7 years now and totally forgot about how bad everyone talked about Volant. Thanks for pointing that out!
