Just another gimmick someone came up with to separate us from our money.

No doubt measured on the "seat of the pants" dyno, right? Hook it up to a machine and I'll bet you find that there was an insignificant increase.

OP - save the money for some skids/bumpers/sliders etc.

I've got a volant w snorkel on my 05 tj. Like it alot. I'd probably have more power by leaving the cover off the airbox under the hood, but it's nice to know I can drive through five feet or so of water if I want.

Volant makes a nice CAI, I have one on my '02 tahoe with the scoop they offer. It made a differance on that, but what EVERYBODY says is that the 4.0 doesnt need any more air, it is good from the factory. I cant disagree, i have never seen any real improvement on the 4.0 with most of the gimicks. good spark, air, and gas is all you need for your jeep. If you realy want more power and your jeep to do wheelies, put a small block in it. :-)

did you re-plumb all the breather tubes? If you drive through 5' of water without relocating the breathers on the tranny and the pumpkins you're going to have some $erious problems.

Volant Intake

I know you posted this a while ago, but I don't check this to often. I've had the volant intake for about 8 months and I like it. If I had to do it again, I would buy the same one.
