Installing a Volant Intake on a 2002 Dodge Cummins

The Cummins Forum Truck was in need of an intake about a month ago to help the engine well fed with cold air. We had already added a Turbo, Exhaust, Injectors and Chip, we needed an Intake badly. Volant happened to call us and when they found out what we were doing, offered to get us a new Intake for the truck. We were excited.

The first thing you need to do for this installation is remove the old intake tube and box. This is very easy. All you need is a screw driver to loosen the tube from the turbo and the box. Then, you need to remove the lid from the box, remove the old filter, and undew the 3 plastic nuts in the bottom of the intake box. Pull the old box out.

You will need to assemble the new box and all of its components before you go any further. Make sure to put the gasket material around the hole where the intake tube comes in. Place the Intake Box in the engine compartement exactly where the old one was and use the original plastic nuts to tighten the box down.

Place the 4" rubber coupler on the small end of the intake tube along with the 2 - 4" clamps. Place the large end of the intake tube in the intake box. Butt the small end of the intake tube against the Turbo Inlet and push half of the 4" rubber gasket over the Turbo Inlet and clamp both sides.

Put the new cone filter in the box, and over the large end of the intake tube. Be sure that it is seated well, and tighten the large clamp around the filter, on to the tube.

Screw the plastic lid back on the intake box. Be sure that all the clamps are snug. Be careful not to over-tighten. You are done!

I really like this intake. I had installed MBRP's exhaust but it definitely needed a good intake to make it complete. Now we have plenty of air coming in and out! Definitely feel a power increase. I can also here the Turbo spool up quicker. If you have a 98-2002 24V Cummins, I recommend this intake to you.

Thanks Volant!

    Thats the same what Volant print, nothing about the open tub in the back of the box "optional air intake"
