have the volant with the power core and dynomax delete on wife's sahara, hear the muffler or lack of over the intake, bought the intake for the donaldson filter, nano fiber filters better, used in mining and industrial equipment

Hi, I put the S&B cold air on my JLUR and it is a lot louder i can really hear the intake pulse on acceleration. Over time i got use to it.

I'd like to install a aftermarket intake on mine, really more for filtering area, however every open system intake I've ever installed on vehicles is loud as hell.. I'm def investigating closed systems or even a snorkel type.

The Volant like VNT's is a closed type which should be much quieter.

Unless your punching it you will defiantly hear it. But under normal driving its just a deeper hum but not obnoxious at all. I posted a before/after video on my instagram.


I do have a video of not punching the gas with normal driving

That’s exactly what I was looking for! Thank you.

I have a Gibson exhaust. Do you have an exhaust on yours?

Have to? No.
Dyno tuning after a few more mods (short of forced induction) will likely give some improvements but all that money spent would be better saved for a supercharger. You don't need anything else.
