after my nightmare of attempted install yesterday for the VOLANT CAI (which didnt fit properly in my engine compartment) i am selling it to someone i work with and am looking at the INJEN #PF1959P

i cannot find whether this will fit my '10

any body have an '09 out there that has this & does it fit ?

I know you are asking about the INJEN but do you have any pics of the Volant in your engine compartment? I am curious to where the fitment issues were.

The injen for 05+ should fit fine. I have read a few times that the end of the injen doesn't fit the hole in the inner fender perfect, but they all love the intake

I had minor fitment issues with my Volant but nothing that I would complain about.

Well, it's wasn't just the horn-relocation, I knew all about that before I ever bought it and didn't consider that an issue. One of the screw holes didn't line up (a drill fixed that) and the screws for the MAF sensor were a little to long (a few washers fixed that). I also don't run the scoop because there is a metal cylinder (my dad said it was a condenser?) thing right where the scoop would have gone. Like I said, nothing major, just little things that were easily taken care of.

it all started with the horn issue - what a b*tch to get to (didnt have a extention long enough) then once i finally got it removed & the Volant airbox to where it SHOULD be the pump behind the box was holding it out - it actualy sat @ 1" OVER the fender

i have read that they can be a pain to install but was at the point of frustration & bleeding hands and just said F it :smileyshell:

will admit though, being my first attempt at an install, i was surprised how straight forward removeing the factory intake was, just had to cut a few wire ties !

Dont see why the injen wouldnt fit. The box is a bit smaller then the volant box too. Both great intakes!

You do realize that the official fitting Volant for the 2009-2010 model is not yet available, right? Yes, I realize that some users out here said they were able to use the 12640 model (at least I read one post where someone said they used the 12640 model on their '09 -- have yet to see a similar post for a 2010), which specifications are for 2005-2008 Frontier 4.0L. The model for the 2009-2010 model is Part 12540, and according to email I received from Volant this morning, it is now available. I did call AutoAnything, who in turn called Volant, and said it isn't quite available - YET, but it should be sometime soon.

For reference:

I hear ya... I'm just waiting on AutoEverything and Volant to get their act together and have the 12540 available, and then I will be ordering it for my '10 as well.. Volant says yes.. I email AutoEverything -- they check with Volant and tell them yes they can order.. AA emails me back, says 'Call up and speak with our sales tech, they can order for you' -- I call AA, the guy is like 'I dont think so, but hold on' -- he gets on the phone with Volant, Volant tells them its not available. I email my contact back at Volant -- he says 'I just checked, it is available'

The Injen will fit a 2010. I Installed the wrinkle black one this weekend.
A little more power. I don't hear it until after 3K RPM. Rattles just off idle sometimes.
I don't care for the single rubber isolator mount either. Be sure to clean the intake pipe, mine had metal shavings in it from manufacture.

If you would have bought my tools..... you would of had everything needed to install this intake, or do exhaust, or install cams, or do a V8 swap, Titan suspension swap, CV joint replacement, or just about anything else you could do to your truck....... Just saying! :)

What is the advantages/disadvantages of the wet/dry filter?
Wet requires cleaning/oiling every 5k or so.

Dry (powerflow) can cause too much flow and throws a CEL.

Most that have the Wet have choosen to replace it with an AEM/Amsoil/etc... dryflow.

The ones with Powerflow are still fighting issues and I am unsure if a final solution across the board has been found besides getting a programmer or something.
