Maybe it was b/c I didn't have my coffee yet lol. It seems to be idling like before, when I took it for lunch. It's referred to as a air deflection plate, my assumption was it would direct the air towards the stock air box bottom inlet. I'm not positive if its supposed to be removed b/c the scoop sits against it or if Volant doesn't think the scoop will fit down there with it in. If anybody knows please answer.

So you just attached the fender tube to the bottom of the air-box and dropped it down in like that. Good idea, I should of thought of that. I didn't take my wheel off though just my wheel well liner.
OhSnap, did you remove the air deflection plate when you went in the wheel well?

I'm attaching the make shift install instructions pics from Volant if anybody can tell me the purpose of the air deflection plate (pic5) and/or if its preventing proper air flow to the snorkel.

1. Remove the (3) push pins holding the skid plate to the driver’s side wheel well

2. Remove the 7mm, 10mm bolts holding the skid plate to the bumper

3. Once you remove the skid plate you will remove this air deflection panel

I have the 20'' rims/tires on mine and its a very tight squeeze between the wheel well and tire, plus the car sits pretty low to the ground. It can probably be done, but to save yourself the headache and frustration, I would probably just jack up the driver side and take that tire off. I did not do this, I just dropped it in from up top like I believe you did. I'm just curious if this panel is sitting right against the snorkel and restricting air flow. If the weather gets better this weekend, I'm probably going to pull skid plate down and take a look.

Ok according to what I got back from Volant was this:

"The deflection panel will need to be removed for the proper airflow"

So I guess I will be removing it this weekend.

mattyj724, if you pm your email address, I can send you the complete install instructions word doc that Volant sent to me. It's too big for me to attach it on the forums.

My question is:


How loud is this thing? My AFE was SUPER loud and borderline obnoxious.

There also is a noticeable difference in sound between the stock box and the 6.1 box that I have on there now.
