I am looking to change my intake and am not sure where to start. Who are some good companies that make bolt-on setups for the Golf III VR6's? I have seen many for the newer Golfs, but not really a lot of choices for my car. Thanks. jered
Also, being a "poor college student" it would be nice to find one under $200

I'd save a little more and get a cold air from either turn2 or EVO(I think thats the company name) or carbonio(but you'll pay a lot for a carbon fiber tube intake).
I've got the turn2 CAI and I like and was worth the extra money. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

5ven3 (or anyone else who knows),
Does the ABD Q-flo intake come with a pipe or anything or does it use the factory intake tube. Any pictures with it installed would be helpful. Thanks. jered

I think it clamps on the MAF sensor just like the P-Flow...and those "short ram" setups like that Q-Flow and P-Flow from "nospeed" I mean neuspeed are performance killers since they sit in the engine bay and suck up a lot of hot air.....but are very loud when at WOT. Turn2 is your best bet for performance. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: Intake options for new guy (VDoubleUVR6)

if you get a short ram setup then make sure it has a full heatshield otherwise like the man jsut said its gonan suck up hot air and do nothing except sound cool..
If you live in a really rainy area you might want to consider the shrot ram over the cold air intake due to the positioning of the filter. the cold air intakes are a bit more likely to get drenched and suck up water. water + engine = very bad

Re: Intake options for new guy (Ricky Rockstar)

I didn't really think of that. I do live in FL, so we get a lot of rain on and off. That would be something to consider. jered

Re: Intake options for new guy (havok917)

I have the Turn 2 CAI and drive it year round in the rain/snow/slush/ice and I haven't had any problems with water at all. Just don't go WOT through deep puddles and it shouldn't be a concern. Get the Turn 2 CAI and thank me later. Excellent product. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: Intake options for new guy (VikingVR6GTI)

yeah, but you can't compare any other weather with florida rain, they get serious stuff.
i worry about mine sometimes and our rain isn't nearly as bad.

Cheap as hell, but works just the same. Moving my charcoal cannister to the other side of the vehicle. Already have a K&N drop-in filter. Going to remove the air horn off the front of the box, cut and install a 3" dryer adapter and then run a tube down where the cannister was. With my second hand filter, I will have about 28 bucks invested in it.
