The instructions were a somewhat weak and the pre-drilled housing holes were a little off. The MAF was tricky because the natural position to insert it was backwards. As a novice it took some trial & error to figure out what I did wrong. The Volant website should add some troubleshooting ideas to help out. Overall, I am very pleased with the look, sound and performance. Combined with my Borla exhaust, my power and sound upgrades are terrific!

After a little trouble getting it put on it worked wonderfully. Be prepared for quite a bark when you step on the gas. Much better response and you can really feel the power. I didnt expect that much of a gain from the v8. Wow. I would buy again no doubt.

Removed factory unit with a screw driver, 10mm wrench and a 12mm socket on rachet. Installed the new Volant with the same tools and had to relocate the ground wire for the map sensor from the quarter panel to the top of the fender well (fit right in the alternate location)the wire is to short to clip into sensor in the factory location. Low and mid range response of the 4Runner is very smooth; the high end has a noticiable sound difference (pedal down and holding high 4's to mid 5's on the tach) but still in the "break in" period. I have not checked mileage or pulled my boat with it yet.

Had this for a year now. I honestly can't say it has increased gas mileage any. I added a Gibson catback as well and the combination has helped performance, but not noticable on gas mileage which was why I bought it. I calculate gas mileage with every fill up and it is fairly consistant at 17 MPG with my driving conditions....before and after the upgrades. There is more power and more appealing sound.

The "instructions" were worthless. And the hose they gave me didn't even work, the bend I needed had such a sharp angle I had to use the stock one. The holes for the Mass Air Flow Sensor wasn't even drilled out. Next time I'll stick with K&N, a lot better quality.

Delivery was slow (more a problem with UPS then Autoanything), instructions were lacking to say the least but the install is simple enough to figure out. *Make sure you have your air mass sensor in correctly*... easy thing to mess up and the "instructions" don't remind you of this. Don't judge it by it's performance the first day or two. Allow time for the onboard computer to adapt. Sounds great during acceleration, but gets obnoxious when hitting the high RPM's. The performance is there... the gas mileage is hard to tell... maybe +1 mpg. Get rid of that nasty back pressure with a new exhaust and the two will work great at raising those mpg's. All in all i would buy it again.

I purchased my Volant intake after researching all the available models for my 2006 4Runner v8. Volant was the obvious best choice for appearance and performance gains. I installed it after the installation of the Borla cat-back dual exhaust kit and it made a huge difference in sound and power verses with just the exhaust.
