Re: Intake: Feeler (LuisF)

don't get a freekin CIA.... when will you people learn.... drive in a puddle and you my friend better find yourself a new engine
and then you say 'well its worth the performane increase!'
big news! that cia does practically NOTHING for you performance compared to the stock air box... at MOST +3ph..... why do you think APR'S STAGE III kit uses essentially the same box?????? get yourself a drop in filter by either K&N or ITG... they're arround 40 bucks... and will do just as much for you as a CIA, w/o any of the risk...

Re: Intake: Feeler (LuisF)

i did a similar intake set up for like 65 dollars on my mk3 gti. the really improtaant thing is that you should verify that you are getting a good quality filter cuz thats the most important. and i wouldn't go with a cold air if you get alot of rain or wet weather , cuz you would have to be concerned with hydrolock

Re: Intake: Feeler (flashback)

I didn't think about that. (water puddle)
People keep telling me different things, hence my confusion. I'd like to duplicate the sound that the CAI/DV makes. Will the drop-in with a DV (oo7) make a similar sound, or will it not be as pronounced?

Re: Intake: Feeler (LuisF)

well i guess thats the single thing a CIA does that the drop in filter can't.... the sound....... btw i just realized your in dallas 2 hehe, i know and you know we definitely are not flooded in water all the time... but there are definitely those flash floods we have to deal with every once in awhile... imagine your in a parking lot... its raining heavy,,,, so your drive and all of the sudden you roll down into a dip about 7" deep or so.... basically you have just submurged that cia filter in water... so its shooting water into the engine.. and last time i checked water doesn't combust well hehe, and your engine is gone...
i know that is somewhat unlikely... but just THINK if that or anything similar happened.... a new engine is arround 8k or so... and b/c of your aftermarket CIA you insurance company will NOT cover it.... so your out 8k just so your car has a deeper growl
i mean tis your choice man, but if you look arround you will find horror stories from people that had this happen to them and wish sooooo much they had never thought about a CIA

also if you check out ECS tuning, you can get a blow off valve(yes they have a specially designed system that will let it work well with our cars)... and that will gives you painfully loud noise.....
also i'm not possitive.. but some aftermarket diverter valves may be better for noise than the stock one... might want to ask arround about that

Actually I'm pretty sure a filter has to be completely submerged in water to suck any up. I know paper filters are that way at least (K&N type), but I would assume foam ones would be as well. So basically unless you plan on driving through a flooded wash or a lake or something you'll be straight.

Re: Intake: Feeler (flashback)

I was told that the 007 would be a good one. Now, I don't want the noise painfully loud as you describe it, I'd just like it to wake up from the dead.

Re: Intake: Feeler (LuisF)

Dang, ECS has the HKS BOV for $300....... Right about as much as a CAI and 007 DV. Choices. It's all about choices. Damn Matrix.

What do you guys think about this set up? Worth the money? http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors...38634
The AEM CAI's I've found are up to $200 with shipping.

<----cheap skate lol


I got the same thing for 30 bucks shipped...don't buy that, when I say same thing, I mean same exact freakin thing

BTW it sucks up a lot of hot air
