? on volant intake

I was looking at a volant intake with the ram air scoop. Does anyone have this setup and what kind of power gains are you getting and does your gas mileage improve. I know alot of u guys have the URD intake and you are really pleased with it. I was looking at going a different route. I dont really like the fact of having the filter in the front of the truck like that because it rains alot where i am at. So il like the setup of the volant ram air intake. Any info on the matter would be appreciated.

i hear that volant makes a good intake. check the buy/sale/trade forum here....someone had one listed for sale. you may get a decent deal for it.

I really love my Volant CAI, i noticed increased gas mileage and throttle response. Not to mention it makes a badass noise when you really punch it. There are a few guys on here who have the scoop as well but i dont see the need for it.
