Is it the ram air horn? I dont have volant but i think the trucks horn has to be relocated to use the ram air. Someone with a volant will chime in.

i think you can get a mounting bracket from volant for free for the relocation of the horn. but i'm not 100% on that just going off memory of what i've read on here since i don't personally have a volant either. i hear of alot of fitment issues with volant but from what i've seen once you get it to fit you'll be very happy with it. hope someone chimes in with a definite answer for ya so you can get to enjoying that thing

The holes in the box for the bolts need to be slightly enlarged so they align with the holes in the wheel-well. This is a common thing needed.

The horn also needs to be relocated so the box will fit correctly. You can either push the horns under the headlight if they will fit or extend the wires and mount them between the grill and radiator like the 05 models have OEM.

There is also a condensor containor or something that is technically in the way of the ram air horn. It does cover up some of the area but what can you do, lol.

That is about it. Just make sure you clean the tube prior to installing it since it usually has some dust and plastic particles inside of it.

x2 on the cleaning. My injen had dust and metal filings in the tube. Would hate to see that go in to your engine!

Honestly you would probably save a ton of money and skip most of the mods or you would loose a ton of money having to do mods over and over to find the one that is right for you.

Yes, Volant will send you a bracket to relocate the horn if they didn't include it in the box. I got the bracket but there was nothing in the box explaining what it was. After I moved the horns, 2 of the 3 holes lined up perfectly. I didn't even use the third hole as it was at the bottom and would make for a good drain hole if I were to ever get any water in the box. I've been running with the intake like that for 15,000 trouble free miles. I also have the condenser in the way and just capped the whole for the ram air scoop. I think this part was put there beginning with the '07+. The intake still made a noticeable difference in the performance of the truck, even without the scoop.

So basically, what you are experiencing is considered normal with the Volant.
