    Induction To cone or not to cone ?

    Hi all,

    I have just got an a3 quattro and was woundering if it is better to stick on cone filter on it or just replace the pannel filter with a good k&N pannel.


    Does this car bennifit from a cone or not i know some cars do not like it and run worse

    Hi SMithy

    There are several posts regarding cone filter, stock box, pro's and con's if any.

    Try use the search function and also browse over the stickes.

    I quite often say I'm going to do things.

    Then never do them.

    What have you done with the cold air feed? I've noticed the car doesn't quite pull like it did now I've put this and the oversized tip on.
    Thinking about making a blanking plate out of metal, there's a good guide here on asn. But the cold air feed is what I think is lacking, before with the box it had direct connection to cold air, now it's got a mix of both...

    temp of the air pre turbo means naff all on charged cars.

    Larger tips tend to move the power curve to the right a bit, less lower down, more up top. With an up to date map taking into account the mod/s that wouldnt be the case.

    Should feel nice and free top end tho, 6k+
