    I am working on a new Aluminum Cover for the 2012+ Volant CAI. It is a little way off, but I thought I would give you a sneak peak.

    First off I would like to give a HUGE thanks to Coupe for making such a great CAI cover. First impressions, this a quality, thick piece of aluminum compared the flimsily plastic cover the Volant comes with and was really surprised. I have always wanted the first gen TRD CAI but since having a 2012, that is not easily done without modification and didn't want to go there. So I settled for the Volant. The manufacturing tolerance are far from great but with the RAM air scoop it does work great with 2 degrees above ambient. The problem I had was the looks and Coupe solved this issue and hit out of the park. As you can tell from the picture it looks a million times better and now my engine bay has some class and style compared to the cheesy rice look I had before. I re-used the original hardware with the rubber grommets and it seals up nice an tight with the rubber gaskets attached to the cover. To make an incredibly long store short, I absolutely love the cover and now I cant stop staring under the hood. THIS IS A MUST HAVE. Next will definitely be a batter holder in the same style and TRD Supercharger will look great next to this as well when I start plying the lottery. And if you actually read this long drawn out paragraph, you can now enjoy the before and after pictures.

    I am glad you are happy with it.

    I made a few of these, if anyone else would like one, the price is $150 shipped to the lower 48 states.

    Thanks for the write up Jason.
