I know it's debatable about the horsepower improvement, but does an Air Intake really change the sound of the Hemi? I want to upgrade the sound of the Hemi, but don't want it too loud in the back where people won't want to ride in the car. Just a more stronger sound. Will just the Air Intake give me that? Which company seems to be the best. Thanks!

My Volant is supurb, the sound is incredible but can not be distinguished from stock when granny driving. When putting the hammer down it comes alive with a great 4 barrel intake roar. I can easily drive this car and a passenger will not know it from stock all determined by the right foot.

One small point and it may be a matter of semantics but I would say it does not change the sound of the engine but rather the sound of the intake.

Have any of our vendors considered coming up with a pure replacement kit for the air silencer so as the holes don't have to be ugly plugged up?

Yeah, what holes are you referring to? I took the ENTIRE silencer out, popped in the Volant, and I don't understand what holes you are referring to?

Could you please clarify?

Is it the same sound as in the import intakes like the hondas and acuras?
No, those Hondas and Acuras I think you are referring to have those fart can mufflers/tips, young ricer junk, to give the illusion of power. This sound is from under the hood not the tail pipe, a nice mid bass mellow whoosh only when stepping on it 30-40% throttle which is ideal. Some may recall I was the first to remove my Zoomers exhaust because it was too loud for me. I am a stickler for that "just right" look, feel, and sound. I am the world's expert on what I like and my opinion which really has nothing to do with your tastes and nuances. As Hemeee said sound is subjective and there really is no way to adequately describe the intake melody (believe me it is pure music IMO). I think any of the aftmkt intakes make good sounds from what I can gather, find a member in your area who has one and go for a spin.

My Mopar says YES! Reminds me of flipping the breather top on my Dad's '73 Camaro when I had it for the weekend, so you could hear that V8 when you floored it. Only the Hemi is louder at WOT. Never know it's there up to about 1/3'rd throttle. Then she starts to sing! :love:

And while there is no discernable performance increase, I am getting slightly better mileage (about 1 mpg), now that I don't make her sing as often as I used to. :wink1:

Bay Area, just asking; too loud for the passengers in the back? Intake sounds? sounds like an impossibility to me.
But that's me.

Only if removing air silencer & going with K & n drop in is that applicable. At any rate, it's too much of a hassle. I myself will be going with the volant as well. Thanks

My Volant CAI said Grrrrr...
Since adding Zoomers it says R-O-A-R...
It's definitely speaking my language!! BUT what sounds like one of the romance languages to me, may just sound like Pig Latin to you... try to do as II kings suggests, fly before you buy!
