They used my car to measure for a tube. I never heard back from them.
Which reminds me of a company that owes me an intake...

I don't know how everything would look at fitment time, but how does it not fit?? Is the maggie tube too short to reach the Volant box?? In this case, a quick trip to Home Depot would take care of that. Let me know how it won't fit.

The tube is way too short. The Maggie tube tapers down to fit over the pulleys and under the hood to the stock box, as you know. The Volant box looked nice but the mounting holes were also drilled in the completely wrong spots on the bottom. Their quality control on the hole-driller leaves a lot to be desired. Some members have stated theirs didn't have ANY holes drilled in them.

Interesting about the holes.

Install on my volant went very well...Holes were pre-drilled
correctly. They must have gotten it tight with time and
feedback from customers. Doesn't excuse not getting it right the first time though.

I had to order an elbow for the maggie end of the tube before I can put it on correctly. Mounting holes were fine but couldn't get the tube alligned without some mods. A search didn't turn up any pics for a Volant and maggie install. Did any of you guys take pics?

I'm running the volant with the maggie. I am not 100% happy with it yet, but I'm still working on it. First thing I used was a ghetto, DIY, home depot job with a piece of PVC to extend the maggie pipe to reach the Volant. However, the belt pulley was contacting the intake tube and actually wore through one of the clamps, so that aint gonna work. I took another stab at it and replaced the pvc with a hacked up version of the Volant intake tube. Basically I shortened the volant tube to line up with the maggie intake tube, and used the "notch" in the back of the volant tube to give the clearance from the pulley. I'm still getting the occasional contact on the tube from the pulley but I think a couple shims under the volant to tilt it a hair forward will do the trick. I planned on playing around with it a little more this week, so I'll let you know.

Thanks, much appreciated. I like the Volant kit, so I am going to do everything I can to make it work. I am getting it for free, so it WILL work:)

Too late dkhead, it's already on my car and your little bro even helped me:gr_jest:


Anyway, I got the Volant kit to fit with the maggie tube. I cut the Volant tube and made everything fit. Looks pretty sweet. Blower is louder too!! I will be at Magnaflow tomorrow, so if you wanna see the Volant/maggie set up, just hit me up:)
