This is what is provided for $350 dollars, i'll let the pictures of that cut speak for themselves. There isn't a straight edge on this thing. And fitment? It doesn't even remotely fit my 2013 SV Frontier. For $350 you think you could get three holes in the right spot, gonna require major modification to make it fit. I was hopeful after the review Z1 gave but wow, just wow. Swearing off Volant products after this one. I'm only writing this as a warning to others, don't get swindled.
Everything is good about this intake except for the fact that all they did was take the older intakes and cut a large gaping hole where the horn would normally get in the way. The end result is you have a cold air intake that is actually open box. If you were planning on doing water crossings or going Offroad I would choose an alternate system that is actually closed box. The kit I received had the wrong hardware which made it impossible to secure to my vehicle frame without a trip to the hardware store. Also it was missing the cold ram air intake. Really disappointed in this purchase and in Volant cutting corners with a really lazy fix here. Either buy the older version with an actual closed box and relocate the horn or shop elsewhere all together.
I viewed a You Tube video of this cold air intake and bought it. I wish I would have read the other posts about holes not lining up. This box was clearly not made for these trucks or it was made by 5 year olds. Holes don't even try to line up even with "gentle massaging" and the box does not conform to the area it was supposedly designed to fit. Why are there huge open areas of the box not closed? even if I chose to put a snorkle on the space provided it would **** up the water in that giant hole. Try again Volant, Maybe this time get a 6 year old to design it!
Install is easy however the box only has one mounting hole and doesn’t line up well. The sound and peddle feel are both good. My mpg has dropped however I don’t think my ecu is used to the extra air just yet( I’ve been babying the gas). My only real complaint was that the plastic cover for the air box came broken but the customer service/ tech guy I spoke to immediately sent me a new one. Haven received it yet but hopefully it will get here soon.
The quality of the product is good. Installation of the box was extremely difficult. Had to have my neighbor help me. We ended up reaming out the holes so the bolts would fit. There was so little length we couldn't use the lock washers. The unit is very loud when you accelerate. Has a nice tone when not accelerating. Probably wouldn't buy it again.
Easy instructions to follow for install. Just wish I would have received the "no taxes" when I ordered mine. I ordered mine 3 weeks before that special.
I love the extra power and the sound, but the fit and finish leave something to be desired. I had to struggle to get all three mounting bolts through the air box. The plexiglass lid doesn't exactly sit flat on top of the box. The seal between the box and the fender was an awkward fit. Lastly, there would be a lot of modification required to use this box with a snorkel. I'd say this kit is a good value, but it's not for the serious off-roader or the mechanically disinclined.
