      Video Review & Installation

      Jake: Jake here for AmericanTrucks. And today, I'm taking a look at the Volant Closed Box Cold Air Intake with the MaxFlow 5 Oiled Filter for 2019 to 2022 5.3-Liter Silverado 1500s. If you've got a newer model, 5.3-liter Silverado, and you're looking to pick up something that will improve the sound and the drivability of your truck without the need for a tune all while being relatively headache-free. This option from Volant is gonna be an excellent choice for you.Now, there are a few standout features here, but I wanna start with what is perhaps the most obvious and that is the closed air box. Similar in concept to your stock setup, having a closed air box like this helps keep the intake from pulling in hot air from all around the engine bay and instead just pulls cooler air in from the outside. Cooler air is more dense and more air density means better combustion and better combustion means more power.You're also gonna get a bigger volume of air coming through this filter and the intake tube versus your stock air box. Now, Volant does include a high-velocity venturi filter adapter, which is right here to help aid in that transition from the filter into the intake tube. It's gonna smooth out the airflow and allow the engine to breathe nice. Volant also includes a high-velocity venturi filter adapter right here at the base of the filter itself. And that is to smooth out the airflow going through the filter into the intake tube. So it's gonna smooth out and speed up the flow going into the engine. However, airflow is only as good as the filter attached to it. And in the box, you also get one of Volant's MaxFlow 5 air filters. Now it comes just like this all ready to go.Now, this is an oiled filter. As opposed to a dry filter like you have in your stock setup. Oiled filters are great for trapping dirt and dust out on the street. And this one, in particular, features multiple layers of cotton gauze to blend airflow with filtration. And these deep pleats that you can see here really provide a ton of surface area to help catch any unwanted particles and maximize that airflow.Oiled filters are known to provide really high airflow and that layer of oil on the outside of the filter is also super sticky. So it can even catch particulates that might otherwise slip through a dry filter. And the best part about all of that is that these are reusable. So you can take this out, wash it, reoil it, pop it right back into your truck. Volant claims that you can go up to 25,000 miles between cleanings, but that will, of course, depend on where you live and the conditions under which you use your truck.Now you may have noticed it already, but there's also something else unique about this air box that's meant to help you figure out when you need to service that filter. That is this clear Plexiglas window at the top of the box. Not only does it look really cool, but it also allows you to check on the health and cleanliness of your filter without having to disassemble anything. Just pop the hood of your truck, and there it is.Then we also have the intake tube itself, which is this big ABS plastic unit. Unlike most stock intakes, there's no accordion joints here. So it's totally smooth, which means it's gonna flow well, and it's gonna give you some added sound when you put the pedal down. So between the resonance of this and the airbox itself, you're gonna get a really nice growl when you open up the throttle. And that's the best part about intakes is that you get that sound, but it's not obtrusive at all when you're just cruising around under partial throttle. You really are only gonna start to hear it when you get to burying the throttle.So, how much is this all gonna cost? Right around $350 is the answer. And that's pretty closely aligned with other closed box air intakes on the market for these trucks. It is gonna give you a different driving experience than stock, as well as that additional sound in airflow. And like I mentioned, at the beginning of the video, a tune is not required with this one. However, if you are looking to extract the most out of this kind of setup or any kind of engine modification, a custom tune is gonna be the way to go.Now, as far as installation is concerned, this is gonna get a one out of three on a difficulty meter. It's a simple bolt-in install that should take you around an hour to get completed. Everything you need to get the job done is in the box, including the adapters here for the tube in the box, new hose for the PCV, and all the clamps that you need to do it. It is definitely a job you can accomplish at home with hand tools and to show you just how to get it done, let's head to the install bay now, and we'll show you the process.Man: The tools you're gonna need for this installation include an impact gun, a ratchet. I'll be using a 3/8 and 1/4-inch drive. Long and short extensions, an 8-millimeter socket, a 3/8 to 1/4 adapter, a T20 Torx socket, and Phillips and flat-head screwdrivers.What's going on, guys? Today, I'm gonna show you how to install a Volant cold air intake on your '19 to newer Silverado or Sierra 1500. Now, we've previously uninstalled the factory air box, so I'm gonna send you to that clip first, then I'll be back to walk you through the install. All right. First step, we're gonna remove the mass airflow plug. To do so, we're gonna use a flat-head screwdriver, slide the safety pin out of the way here. And then it's a push clip. So you just push down and slide the connector off.Next, let's locate the vent hose that's located on the back of the intake plenum. We gotta remove that. To do so, we just push in this gray clip right here and pull straight back. Next, we're gonna loosen up the clamps that hold the intake plenum to the air box. One clamp is right here, and then the other clamp that holds the intake plenum to the throttle body, which is right in here. It's hard to see on camera, but I'll give you a general idea when I put my tool down there. To loosen these clamps, we're gonna use an 8-millimeter socket with an extension and an impact or a ratchet.Next, we can pull the plenum off of the throttle body and then pull it off of the air box. Now, it's removed. We can get it out of the engine bay and out of the way. Now we're gonna remove the screws that are holding in the upper part of the air box to the lower portion. To remove those, we're using an 8-millimeter socket with an extension. And there's three in total. So there's one, the second one is here. And the third one is hard to see on camera, but it is back here by the coolant overflow tank.Once the screws are out, you just have to tilt it up in order to get these tabs out of the lower air box. And the third screw that you couldn't see is right here. With the upper portion of the air box off, we're gonna remove this filter as it's gonna be replaced. So we have the factory air box out of the truck, and there are a couple of pre-assembly steps that I need to walk you through before we put the Volant intake into our truck. So, let's get started. First thing we're gonna do is remove the MAF from our factory air box. To do that, we need a T20 Torx socket and a ratchet. And these screws should be in there pretty loosely. This is a fragile piece of electronics, so you wanna make sure that you're careful when uninstalling and reinstalling. Two screws, and then it slides right out.Now that that's out, we can move our factory air box out of the way. All right. Now, to install the MAF sensor into the Volant intake, take this supplied gasket, put it onto the MAF sensor, like so, does have to be oriented in this position, then slide the MAF sensor into the intake with the connector facing the numbers you see here. And to secure the MAF, use the two supplied screws. Thread them in just a couple of threads to get it started. It makes it easier to line up the holes if you don't tighten one down before you get the other one in. And they are Phillips drive, so I'm gonna use a Phillips head screwdriver just to snug them down. Like I said, previously, this is a fragile piece of electronic equipment so make sure you're not over-tightening. You'll know you're tight enough when you can see that the gasket has just a little bit of squish to it. And you're good there.Next, we have to install the filter with the supplied clamp onto the filter adapter in our airbox. And to tighten down the clamp, we're using an 8-millimeter socket and ratchet. Just make sure your filter is seated flush. And you're good to go. Now, we're gonna install our hump hose onto our air box using one of the supplied clamps. Now, there are three larger size clamps and one smaller size clamp that come in the kit, make sure you're using one of the larger size clamps. I'm gonna place my clamp on the hump hose first. And we wanna make sure that we orient the clamp in a way that's gonna make it easier to get to when we do install the box in the truck. So I'm gonna put it this way, put it on to the filter adapter, and with our 8-millimeter socket, just gonna snug it down a little bit.Now I am only gonna tighten this down just a little bit as when I get it into the truck, I'm probably gonna wanna rotate the clamp just to make it easier to get to. Now that we're done with our pre-assembly, we're gonna start installing our components into the truck. And we're gonna start right here by the throttle body. All right. With our pre-assembly done, we're here at the truck again at the throttle body, and we're gonna install the reducer hose. So the smaller end of the reducer hose is gonna go onto the throttle body. And we're gonna use one of the supplied clamps to secure it down.This is the smaller of the two sizes of clamps, so make sure you got the smaller one. Slide the clamp over the reducer hose. And I like to orient it in this position just to make it easier to get to. Then slide the reducer hose onto the throttle body. Make sure it's nice and flush with this tab that's back here kind of hard to see on camera, but this tab right here will show you that you are flush against the throttle body. Position, your clamp to make it easy for you to get to. And with our 8-millimeter socket and ratchet, we're gonna snug it down.All right. Now, we're gonna install our Volant air box into our lower factory air box. Couple of things I wanna point out before we do that. There's three holes of the Volant air box, one, two, and three. And they line up with the corresponding holes here, one, two, and three. And also these three tabs in the back of the Volant air box are gonna line up with the three holes in the back of our factory lower air box. So, let's slide those tabs in first, line up our holes. And we're using the factory screws that came out of the air box and our 8-millimeter socket and ratchet.For the other two screws, I did grab another extension just so I could reach back here as they are buried a little deeper. And then for the last screw back here by the coolant overflow tank, again, it's a little tight, but with the longer extension shouldn't have any problems screwing it in.Next, we're gonna install the supplied breather/vent hose. If the factory vent hose got left behind during uninstall like ours did, just push in the gray tab that's at the bottom of the connector, slide it out. And this is the gray tab right here that I'm talking about. So you just press that in, pull up. The supplied hose just slides right over the factory fitting. And this end, we'll go into the Volant air intake pipe.Next, we're gonna install our Volant air intake pipe using the remaining two clamps. So I'm gonna put the clamps over our hoses first. Then I'm gonna take the pipe and put the air box side in first. I like to put that side in first because it gives you a little bit more wiggle room to get the throttle body side in. And you might just have to wiggle the pipe around a little bit just to get it into the throttle body hose. And this one went in relatively easy.Next, we have to tighten down our clamps. And I'm just positioning this to make it easier to get to. I might actually have to loosen that a little bit before we tighten it. And again, we're using our 8-millimeter socket and ratchet. So, I'm just loosening it a little bit to make it easier to position. Make sure you feel around the clamp, make sure it's relatively square to the reducer hose, and snug it down. All right. And we have clamp on this side yet. Same thing. Just make sure you're nice and square to the hose. You can press in a little bit on the pipe while you're tightening it down so it stays seated properly.All right, guys, the last couple of steps here. Very important. Make sure we plug our MAF connector back in, slide the safety clip into place so that it doesn't come out. Then we're gonna move over to our vent hose and this vent hose adapter here does move around, position it properly, and simply slide into place. Now mine came off from this end. Make sure you get it on there firmly. We're good to go.That's gonna wrap up this review and install of the Volant Closed Box Cold Air Intake with the MaxFlow 5 Oiled Filter for your '19 and newer 5.3-Liter Silverado or Sierra 1500s. Thanks for watching. And for all things Silverado and Sierra, keep it right here at
