Re: (Owdee)

drop it in, cooler air, and larger surface area than a little cone.
you want sound? just drill 4 1.5" holes in the bottom portion of the box and put some tubing in them to cold air points...

K&N Intake...

Sorry if this is a repost.
K&N makes an air intake for my A4, but I have never heard of anyone using it. Simply put, it is a filter, a u-bend and some zip-ties. The price is $101.00, which is the cheapest of all systems I have seen.
On the contrary, I think the price is still too high and I could go ahead and assemble my own intake from a mandrel bend, a filter and some hose clamps for half the price.
Input?

Re: (Al_)

are you F-in serious? look at the big pic here

and you can see that "u bend" is just corrugated dryer vent tube. $100 bucks for shiznizzle you can duplicate at walmart for like $20
make your own. they don't even provide a MAF sensor bracket thingy

CAI vs. Airbox Mod

Is there any noticable difference between buy a CAI and Doing this---> http://forums.vwvortex.com/zer......Is there anyone who has done both that could shed some light to the topic. Im just wondering on if i should spend the money or if i could get as much out of it by just drilling some holes

Re: CAI vs. Airbox Mod (xAUDIx)

i've done both; most people on here will tell you to swiss cheese the box but...i suggest spending the money and going w/ the carbonio kit.

Re: CAI vs. Airbox Mod (DUKESDANK)

if you have the money, the carbonio might actually give you more HP
the DIY or the "cone filter for $30" mod which i did just gives you the sound from the DV with no loss or gain in power.
