Took about 2 hours to install including cleanup. Instructions were lacking, limited to diagrams and callouts, but with a little mechanical intuition, this is easily overcome. Installed for two weeks now, immediatly noticed a differance in the sound of the intake, particularly when the wastegate opens, reverberating like someone exhaling into a four inch pvc pipe. Unfortunaly, no "seat of the pants" improvement in performance, and a meager half mile (0.5) per gallon increase on the highway. However, throttle respose is improved as a result of the less restricted air flow. EGT's down about 10F under normal use. My particulary reasoning in looking at this intake vs others, is its ability to bring in cold air, while avoiding waterloging the filter and engine when splashing through water puddles and heavy rain, which can be a problem with other, exposed filter intakes. Overall good purchase, time will tell the rest.

The box arrived in very good condition. I laid out the parts on my bench, everything was there and in good shape. I began the install and realized that there are no install instructions with this kit. If you look at the one diagram Volant sends with the kit you should be able to figure it out. Everything cam out and went back in with no problems. The fit and finish were very nice. I can notice a mild performance difference and can now hear the wastegate valve more. I have not noticed any difference in millage. Overall i am happy with this new part of my truck.

The look is great and the performance is spectacular. I lowered my EGT temp and the turbo spools up alot faster. Instalation isn't bad but the directions are teriable. You can figure it out but plan on scratching your head on a few things. Over all the power gain was well worth the price.

I like the air intake alot. I was not sure how much it would help with performance, but I was pleasantly suprised. Pick up power was really noticable. You can really hear the air swirling under the hood now. Sounds pretty cool. I was suprised at how much difference it made. Not sure on fuel milage yet. Still too early to tell. You should get one.

The volant is extremely, and a superb cold air induction. For my 7.3 2003 it is doing an excellent job. Fuel mileage increased and the power is gnarly! I absolutely love it! Also auto anything gave me an excellent price. The sound of the volant is great also, you can really hear the turbo at work out under the hood. Also the installation was easy. Excellent product--keep up the good work volant and auto anything.

It took me a couple of hours to install the cold air intake even tho there were no instructions, just a diagram. Had to take the OEM battery box off, and the intake fit very tight. The really good part is the intake pulls air from the front and thru the fender. I also ordered the "sock" to keep bugs and water out. Actually was an easy install and works great - looks great.

not to knock volant but the oem air box and filter gave the same intow mileage and better highway mileage thant the volant cold air intake. i would really like to return it but since i travel alot and dont have alot of time to remove it i guess i am stuck with it. but i would not recomend buying the volant product.

My son and I installed a Volant cold air intake (basic model) on our 2002 F350 7.3L about two weeks ago. The installation was a breeze even though the so-called instructions were a joke (nothing but a parts list and a bad diagram). The fit is very good. We noticed a significant improvement in throttle response. Not enough time in yet to gauge mileage changes. So far we had one check engine light warning on a VERY cold morning at highway speeds, but it cleared itself and I suspect the adaptive learning mode had just not caught up wiht the apparently confused Mass Airflow Sensor (frigid morning = more concentrated oxygen). No problems since then. The box does drone a bit at highway speeds but its not bad. Exhales audibly when you let off the throttle, but again not an offensive sound. Overall quite pleased.
