Just installed the K&N CAI. Very happy with it, noticable difference, little bit louder than i thought but overall impressed. I havn't had any other brands on the truck to compare as previous was stock.

Is a Volant Intake worth it for $225 w/ power core filter ?
Or a S&B for about 35$ more

^ I've read of some fitment issues with Volant, some interior rattles/resonating with S&B. I personally do not like S&B's filters. Take your choice. Both have their pluses and minuses. Honestly, I'd pick the cheapest.

Where are you finding those prices? They are good.

Local resellers.

The S&B is now at $240 ..........

SO there $15 isn't much.

I just prefer to have the better of the two, overall.
I do like the filter from Volant more. The S&B seems to be a typical filter.

I've always heard good things about Volant, but seems like fitment would be one of the worst problems to have.

WELL LET ME TELL YALL SOMETHING. IAM CURRENTLY RUNNING S&Bs NEW COLD AIR INTAKE. FEETS 4.7S WITH NEW COUPLER. ITS REALLY FOR THE 5.7s. 03-08. IF YOU DIDNT KNOW ITS A TOP QUALITY PRODUCT. THEY ALSO HAVE AN OPTINAL SCOOP FOR IT FOR EVEN BETTER PERFORMANCE. WELL LATELY I BEEN KEEPING IN TOUCH WITH THEM TO BETTER THEIR OPTIONAL SCOOP.

Well scoop arrived today. i have to say its top quality like always. iam super impressed with this new scoop. just installed it, WOW!. this thing sucks, in a good way lol. so much air now that iam lean. goin to add more fuel now. needs just a little more R&D for fitment, but will report to S&B. notice my IAT drop real quick as soon as i started to accelerate. notice a better super response, better part throttle. oh let me tell you, WOT is a whole lot better. i can feel my truck pull a whole lot better.

I WILL CONTACT S&B AND ASK TO SEE IF ITS OK TO POST PIC OF NEW REDESIGN SCOOP. FOR RIGHT NOW ITS C-14 CLASSIFIED
