    I would think twice about using a oil type filter.

    Ok folks, so last weekend me and a buddy of mine with much more mechanical knowledge than me changed out the stock air filter system on my 2006 base model XLR with a Volant cold air intake system. The price I paid was $317.00. It was a whole lot easier than we had expected. I had in 2015 replaced the stock filters with Air Raid filters, and really didn't notice much improvement. But now with the Volant system it sure seems to have more acceleration, and the sound is really nice. I can't help thinking that with any stock air intake, even if you change out the filters, the engine is gasping for air because of the inefficient design. The Volant system is a more direct air flow system. I've had no mass air sensor issue yet, and I'll report back on any increase in gas mileage. And by the way, I'll be putting the old system up for sale if anyone needs that.

    Just now reading this thread,,,and the same thing immediately crossed my mind,,,perfect example of those TV commercials.

    This owner (not rexster) who is too damn busy to research their own needs,,,,, wants others to do all the work for them.

    IMO, people like that need to take Uber rides instead of owning a vehicle.......

    Default Volant air intake system

    I'm now a month or so into the new Volant cold air intake system, and still noticing more throttle response and acceleration, along with that great sound. Gas mileage has not improved. And, at least for now no MAS sensor issues or a code problem showing up.

    Still have the OEM system for sale if anybody is interested. I'd like to get the $317 I paid for the Volant system, and I'll throw in the two Air Raid filters (they cost a little over $50.00 new and they are 3 years old) and ship it to you for a grand total price of $350.00.
