Overall, a great part
Minus the few setbacks, this is overall a really great and functional cool air intake. Sounds great on the Nissan Xterra. Had to fiberglass the gaping hole on the bottom of the box and purchase an extra plug for the snorkel location to actually seal the box. Installation holes did not line up with factory holes. It is obvious they spent little to no time designing the box, but after getting in, it does work well.
Great intake once installed, but for the money, could be better.
The intake performs well and sounds great once I got it installed. The primary issue with it is the grommet that holds the IAT sensor. The stock elbow has a nice molded in rubber piece that the sensor pushes into and locks. The Volant elbow has a rubber grommet that you need to push the sensor into. When you do this though, the grommet pushes through to the inside of the elbow and you have to start over; it is really difficult. For the price, a fitting should be integrated.
