I thought it was easy to put Dustin's Volant in my truck...maybe he did all that craziness already!

MAD PROPS for the tailgate seal idea! That is exactly what I was going to use on mine!

In no specific order -

I'm very pleased with how the tailgate seal worked...and looks. I achieved both a positive seal and the finish looks....'Factory'. Even if the air box sat down the additional 3/4" needed to properly fit the OEM seal, the final finish would not have been as nice. The Dodge OEM duct has a great fit and finish to it, so I would have expected a premium unit to at least equal that.

Tried to put mine in Sunday evening and had the same problem Brad. No extra hole for a proper fit. It was too late to tackle it then but it looks like I will need to drill the extra hole like you did. Agree this is second rate quality for such a high dollar part.

....perhaps a Fastman Throttle Body ?

Fabulous write up and photography. I like your writing style and never say die attitude. Thanks for taking the time to document your adventure Volant owes you some serious R&D royalty bucks! I'm off to follow your other mod links in your sig. Anxious to see the Fastman TB mod and results. I'd give you REPS if I had any REP Power. I owe ya!

Thanks Tenn4Hemi. Might be a while before I install the TB. It arrived right in front of winter, so I will likely wait till spring. With the roads the way they are, I sure don't need any additional HP, and would not find any road sticky enough to 'test' the results. LOL
