Just wondering if all of your engines ran warmer after installing your Volants.

Mine seems to be, but I'm not sure. I can smell coolant (mildly) when I stop at a light or get out of the car. No leaks though.

I want to take it into the dealer but I don't want any hardship for installing the Volant.

Any suggestions?

Just make sure everything is installed correctly. if you are scared, then put the stock one back in.

It's a 10 minute swap once you have done it before!

And the engine should not run hotter and you should not smell coolant!

I never had any problem with mine. Does it do the same with the stock back on there?

Havn't tried with the stock box on.

I think I'm just going to put the stock one on and roll it into the dealer. Just to be safe.

well i have a garage. so it does not have to sit out much. any water that gets on the motor just steams off and any that gets in the filter is just fine.. oh wait i forgot its a ram air for my fuse box... none of them have rusted..
