Check and make sure everything is tight, the whistle could be an air leak.

every CAI ive ever had or heard makes a whistle sound at some rpms. idk about volant but most CAI get rid of the resonator which is why it makes that sound. but yes do still look for a leak just in case since our MAF sits so far north.

I just put one on mine and I havent noticed a whistle from mine. But I do ride with the windows down most of the time so that may have drowned it out and I just couldnt head it

Nope, no whistle on mine. If the Airaid throttle body spacer was still on there then I would have a whistle. But I removed that a couple years ago because it didn't seem to provide any performance improvement.

Have you noticed any performance/mileage gains? I just ordered my Volant this morning from Autoanything. They gave me $20 bucks off the system and free shipping, Volant is also giving $20 rebate on their systems, so it was not a bad deal overall.

I had a muffler installed early on and think that I need to open up the intake to balance out the system. My mileage dropped to 11.2. Hopefully, the intake will help.

Don't you love when that happens!? I was heading home from work yesterday with my cruise set on 80 when an older Dodge crept up on my @$$ and stayed there for a cpl mile. When he decided he has enough balls to pass my T said no no lol.... Pretty sure he dropped it to 70. Brought to you by Volant lol
