I figured I would post in here instead of the classifieds...IT rarely gets visited by most members... So, I was wondering if anyone has their complete air intake assembly for a 5.7L. I need to get my hands on a complete system. Mine went by the wayside many moons ago when I installed my Volant CAI. So, basically....anyone got a complete factory air assembly... Thanks

I thought that the classifies were visited by most people, as much as any other section. What makes you say that?

I rarely go into the classifieds section unless I am looking for something, as most others probably do, as well. I am mostly making an educated guess. The main forum sees much more action from more people on average. :beatsme:

I rarely (if ever) visit the classifieds. I have a K&N drop in out of my '05 4Runner and was going to list it in the classifieds, but it's like a ghost town down there. I'll prolly do the same thing...list it in the classifieds, then post a link in the 4Runner forum so people will see it.

Yeah FUNGUS... you'll be keeping the bottom piece. I actually visit the classified's about twice a week or so, just for $hits & Grins.

What's up with your Volant... issues?

Well, I think I may have inadvertently found my issue. There is another thread on here (I think... I bounce around so much) discussing the issues I was having. My truck was randomly dying and would not run right. Ultimately leaving me with a vehicle which would not go over 11-12 mph.

The first time it died, it was towed to the nearest dealership (30 miles away). They told me the MAF needed to be replaced as it was throwing all kinds of lean codes and running very lean. I paid.

A couple of weeks later, I tried to start it up in my driveway to go to work. Same thing happened. Towed second time. This time they replaced the MAF again, cleaned the injectors twice, checked for vacuum leaks, and said the CAI was probably causing the issue since it was bringing too much air into the engine. They said I would need to replace it with a factory one before they could do any more testing. I threw my factory one away 50k miles ago. After picking it up from the dealership the second time, I got CEL's popping up not five minutes from the dealership. So, I came on here looking for help.

Back to my possible solution. So, I took off work early yesterday to remove and package my Volant for shipping. I had found an individual on here who would swap everything stock for my Intake. I started with removing the metal cover on the intake canister. When I did, I saw the Donaldson air filter was completely off the inlet tube-it and just sitting in the bottom of the canister. So, I thought since there was no restriction on air flow and there must have been turbulence with the air flow going over the MAF.....I reattached the filter, tightened the bugger out of it and reset my codes and lights.

I took it out and beat the heck out of my truck for 20 minutes or so and it ran like a scalded ape all while not throwing a single code or giving a single hiccup. I drove it today to work (48 miles one way) and no problems. So, hopefully, my issue has been resolved. It is really quite silly. The culprit may have been the simplest thing to check. :rolleyes:

WOW! I can't believe that after all this time, you and/or the dealership never checked! No offense man, but JEEZ! Hopefully nothing got into your engine as a result of the filter being off so long. I'd put the stock one back on anyhow (and go to a different dealership) so that IN CASE something DOES happen to your engine, your warranty won't be voided.

*SIDE NOTE* I've heard of other members with Volant's having similar issues (ie the filter falling off).
