ive been thinking of ways to mod my car. Its an 04 GTI 1.8T, and i dont want to viod the warranty.
1) does anyone know about the swiss cheese air box method.
2) does anyone know how to remove the air silencer, air bong, or any other similar mod, and if it is actually worth doing for any gain (HP, Torqe, noise, ...)

any mods worth doing will void your warranty, thats just something youre going to have to live with if you want a car that performs well

My car is somewhat modded and they fixed my radio under warranty.
Remember, VW can't VOID your warranty, they just deny the service as a warranty service.
Also I just got a Free MAF from VWoA for my 2.0 http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Maybe we should christen this the "m-dub mod"?

You can add a grounding kit. Not really a free mod but its pretty darn cheap (compared to other mods). There's a big DIY in the 1.8T tech forum. You can buy the parts for about 30 bucks and its real easy to do. Heck, I did it myself and don't even know how to change my oil! It makes the idle smoother, improves the DBW response and might give you a couple HP gain. All you really need are pliers and wire cutters too.

Re: 'Stock' mods/free mods (sebastianjbauer)

i hear that by simply adding water to an air bong, you gain 15whp
and become increasingly happy...
