Which air intake is the best for the Armada? I am interested in horsepower and gas mileage savings. Also does this affect the factory warranty?

Ask this question to ten different people and you will probably get ten different answers.
I have the Volant, and if I was to purchase a new CAI today I would still go with the Volant. It is one of the few systems that is a true CAI; no air is drawn from the hot engine compartment. In dyno tests the Volant has been first in power gain in most of them. If not first then a close second. It is a well made unit that will stand up over years of use.
I have the Volant and the Gibson single cat back system. The two work very well together.
I think the gains in mileage will be very small for any CAI.
Neither the CAI or a cat back system will affect your warranty.

Does the Injen intake use the factory resonator box?

Overall I love the idea and looks of the Volant intake. But the engine cover void where the resonator used to be is UGLY!

INJEN comes with everything you need to install it. Fairly easy too. You do however need to make a slight modification to the cover. Make sure you have a dremel tool kit around. COSTCO sells them for 19.99 for an awesome kit.

As far as mileage savings go, it is almost non existant.
