An air intake isn't going to do much on a turbo'd motor since the air will be super hot by the time it hits the turbo anyway. I run the EVOMS V-FLow on mine and really like it. I chose EVOMS because I liked the way it looks in the bay and it sounds good in my opinion. An air intake on your 20th won't do anything but allow you to hear more dv noise. If you want more performance get some tuning done. Bang for your buck, a good tune will give you the most on these cars. I suggest Unitronic or Apr.

Im on a tight budget I know an intake would be cheaper then a tune. The intake would give me the dv noise and a deeper engine noise as well correct? Im just not sure what intake route to go theres so many, and i need to get that nasty big filter box out of the bay...
suggestions would be appreciated

If your on a budget the last thing on your list should be intake. Tune, DP, turbo inlet hose all get you more bang for your buck as far as HP gains. Besides, you already replaced the DV. Time to actually put it to use with a Stg 1 tune. Throw in a K&N drop-in and put the money you saved on an intake toward something else. Good luck

Induction kit...advantages = Noise. You dont gain anything from it tbh. I fitted a ebay jobby to mine and it sounds nice. Nice loud spool and dump from the engine i also have a 008 Forge valve on mine.

If your going for performance its better too keep the standard air box and put a panel filter in it once remapped.

Cold box


*AEM Dry flow filter
*3in - 2.5 elbow where the snorkel was
*2.5 inch vacuum hose tucked against fender and feed to lip or bumper grill
* (optional) I added collectors because i found one inside the box lid.


Looks stock from a glance:thumbup: gets all the "performance" with the efficiently of the box

But if i was willing to pay big $ id get the 42DD:thumbup:

You can at least justify a K&N or similar drop in filter because they are cleanable and it'll save you on filter costs in the long run :D

Many will recommend a dry-flow drop in because you're less likely to over oil the K&N and damage your MAF. Honestly though, I didn't have issues and I ran an oiled K&N for 65k miles. They're not exactly idiot proof though.

Im in the same position with ya, my friend has an APR intake it just makes it louder, I dont feel a performance difference between my stock one at the moment. Just save up for the tune up! :thumbup:
