    check out jabbasports induction kits, there stainless gauze. that means no oily gunky stuff messing up ur MAF.
    Not sure if there are any significant power gains to be had (maybe someone else can advise here?) but u get a gruffer sound from under the bonnett and a slight whoosh from your DV~not to everyones taste.

    The induction kit Jabba have is for the VW Golf, they haven't manufactured one for the A3/S3 yet.

    I can supply you with a Quikshift Taipan system... carbon fibre airbox with sainless filter and cold air feed - much better design, suck in no hot air, and is carbon fibre so looks Niiice!!



    Off the top of my head, the price is roughly 160.

    Yes i know but it isnt for the S3, it is for the VW golf. They are hoping to develop one for the A3/S3. Last time i rang they said they were working on the turbo conversion for the S3/TT and didnt have time and if the demand was there they would look into to making one.
