You are going to want the closed box if you want to add a snorkel, I believe it is the model designed for 2005-2007 models part number 12740.

^^ This. If adding the snorkel you will need the box for 05-07. Relocation of the horns may be required.

On the 08-13 models, why is it not a 'closed box' version?

Picture does not provide a shot to the underside of the filter housing.
There is a giant cutout for the horns as they 09+ x horns were relocated to sit right in front of the airbox. The Volant 12740 does not have this cut out and is the best one to get for that reason as well as if you want to run a snorkel. Otherwise, you will need to seal the later model as some people have managed to do.

Me and The Coalition (Rob) installed my volant out of my 06 and put it in my 08. It is a closed box and I had to relocate the horns both times. I prefer the closed box versus the box with the cut out.
