The little filter is for the secondary air pump on a 1.8T, Im not totally sure if a 4mo has one?

Have a look at the airbox, if it does have one then there will be a
smaller pipe leaving the left hand side - that what the filter goes on.

How much did you pay for it ? Is it new or secondhand ?
?128 off ebay its second hand , the v6 ones norm about 230 odd
Not a bad deal.. impossible performance quoted Mark (Red Gixer) ?280 to fit a carbonio !!!!! LMAO

That filter looks dirty in that pic, that is assuming they don't come in that colour. I'm certain they are a lighter colour to that. Make sure you check it's not dirty already.

I shant tell you how much I got my EVO CAI for then recently,.... lets just say it was an absolute STEAL ! [:D][:D][:)][:)]

What a joke, how hard is it to remove a bumper and airbox?!?! If someone local wanted it done i'd do it for free! Its that easy.

That included the carbonio ! Wasn't too clear originally was it.. that was supply and fitting.. still damn expensive ! and a complete rip off !

Get that puppy on a record some clips! Really want to here what it sounds like. Are you sure it's made for the 4mo though? I know some cars have a different size air intake pipe. For example, i'm sure the R32 intake pipe is slighly larger in diameter than the 4mo's. I may be wrong though.

Normally they come with two, a centre silencer and a rear silencer. Mine has a straight through pipe instead of the centre silencer for a bit more growl. I wanted a CAI but that bloody resistor mod for my fans has put a big bit of metal heat sink where I reckon the air filter will want to sit. [:$]
