    Audi A3 170 TDi Cold Air Intake

    Hi All,

    I have recently purchased my latest mod for my A3 - a new Carbonio Cold Air Intake as a pre-req before i get the car remapped

    Here is a link: Carbonio Intake - Scirocco / Mk6 Golf 2.0TSI - A3 (8P) - Audi - Shop By Car

    I will post a video and how-to guide once i receive it Monday.

    Thanks!

    I have this exact same intake...

    It's not a cold air intake but as the air gets into the engine quicker it doesn't get a chance to heat up as much as the OEM intake.

    You don't get much in terms of gains, but it sounds quiet nice and not too Darth Vader. Plus it looks pretty good...

    Hey mate, bought the Carbonio CAI unsure of what to expect from it but once it was fitted, and with a warm engine, it sounds nuts! i've just got the standard 170 BHP A3 and when i'm in third and leaver off whilst turbo is about to kick in you hear the dump - and it is loud! Loud enough so that it scares dogs

    For £250 - its defo worth the money! I will try and take a video later and upload it when i can.

    Also performance wise the tubo sounds a lot better - more air being sucked in, less lag on the turbo - just need a remap

    Did you manage to do a 'How to install guide'? As I think I will be investing on one of these.

    unfortunately i didnt but the change is really simple! all that is required for the swap over is a cross-headed screw driver as well as a pair of pliers

    I had one of these or similar on my 2.0 TFSI - It created a nice sounding resonance and nice turbo noise :D

    I have had this fitted for about a year now and If I'm really honest, no real noticeable gains. The car just sounds a lot nicer, plus I know I'm getting cooler air into the car quicker. Not a bad mod for the price tag!

    My MAF threw its dolly out the pram for the first week or so until it learnt the new air readings. It was obviously getting a lot more air, a lot quicker! The car felt as if it was choking on too much air. It's all ok now tho
