    Anyone run it? Recently got the Volant CAI, love the sound, curious if anyone has the ram air scoop?

    Do you know who? I'd like some questions answered before throwing down a couple hundred bucks for it, especially since that could go towards a lift :)

    Think there's any gains in HP? I really like the sound of the volant by itself so I'm not sure about spending the 200 just because ya know? I like the principle behind the ram air but I'm not sure if that design will work with a satoshi. The mesh has larger holes so I think it might but still. Also not sure about the 90 the ram air makes from the scoop to the filter to the throttle body, seems less than ideal for airflow but you gotta put the filter somewhere I suppose.

    Does anyone know if the volant used with ram adds any hp or torque?
