Does anyone here have the wheel well liner (i guess thats what u call it) vented to get more cooler air to their CAI. I was just curious to see if anyone has donme this (im sure they have) and how they did it. Do you have to screen it up at all? My only concern is water gettin up in there... any info would help..
thanks guys,
anthony

i think its in the DIY section

The one in the DIY if for the intercooler on the 1.8t. But I guess it would also be done to your CAI, though I personaly wouldnt do it. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

I think in a turbo app. such as the golf you are creating a nice low pressure zone with the turbine sucking in. If you put the liner behind it, that could/at some points would, be a lower pressure than the intake and would allow air to flow around the filter without getting sucked in. Now if your filter was pointing straight forward that would be a different story

I dont think it would be worth the effort. The cross flow that would be allowed by the vent would probably only net you a few CFM, and at a very high speed, and even then you would likely struggle to see 1/4hp or so...
Just my .02...
