they are farly cheap ?58 posted or so. the filter prob isnt the greatest of quality, and i thought i would like a change and have a bit more growl and woosh to my 1.8t for now (ill keep the airbox and ducting for when ever i get bored or the 'chavvy' sound lol). now i have got this small little filter that has come with it. i have seen it in some of the 1.8t engine bays, can any one post a pic of where its meant to go or tell me where its meant to go... i no how to fit the rest of it no probs... cheers

You have another pipe that runs to the left hand side of the standard airbox it fits on the end of that pipe, I think it is the oil breather pipe. Once fitted just secure the pipe to something with a cable tie so it does not drop down and get stuck in the gear s elector linkage.

Thats the one, its the secondary air pump feed which is taken from the filtered side of the airbox hence the need to put a small filter on the end.

is there an echo ?

Gary does your airbox require any other pipe placement as myk3 asked as I know your car is a later reg than mine ?

Same as the picture he posted.

If you have a blue tube that comes off the CAI pipe then this goes directly to the secondary airpump feed and the filter isnt used.

Have you got the kit yet ?

if so just have a look and see if the pipe will fit over the secondary air feed pipe, I personally prefer the look of the other mini filter.

Either way enjoy.

update for any one who missed it:

i have been using this intake for 3 days now and i can say that the performance is slightly better than the 80mm ducting and green pannel filter i had before. the sound is great, much louder turbo spool, suck and massive woosh. allong with the milltek it sounds nice. i took the car for a thrashing, poped the bonnet and the stainless steel pipe was freezing cold. it sounds as good as any other CAI i have heard and for allot less than half the price i highly recomend this!! ?58 well spent.

I also like the look of this too, would not mind going for it, however it is fairly well documented and tested both on this forum and Vortex that 80mm duct + Green filter + smooth box = better airflow, the only way you will really know is to do some MAF runs with VAG _COM. be interesting to see if its more than your green cotton setup.

Suppose I would def go for the sound aspect - is the filter of good quality? anu chance that can be replaced with a green cone filter instead?

Thanks

I have actually just changed my Carbonio CAI for the Smoothed Airbox & 80mm ducting setup as I am currently trying to sell my car and I have noticed that acceleration feels a little smoother.

It isn't really a fair comparison though as the filter that was on the CAI hadn't been cleaned and so was pretty clogged up and that could have been affecting it.

The one downside though is the sound, as with the CAI it gave it a nice intake roar that actually made it sound like there was an engine, now it just muted souless drone until the turbo spools up and then you can hear that.

just to let every one no, i now have the green panal filter up for sale (about 3 months old) ?25 posted.

and i have the air box up for sale, the bottom part is smoothed, but i never got round to smoothing the top part. so if you want an airbox to smooth then replace with your current one there after i will sell it for ?14 posted

i accept paypal.

thanks

How difficult was it to fit this pipe? did you have to remove battery or bumper?

Thanks

sounds good I mite go for this, although I have not done REVO yet, my concerns were the filter quality. But you could sell that one and just get a Green Cotton Cone that could fit making it even better! ..LOL

Thanks
