    Audi s3 AMD cai received and fitted ...

    Well received my AMD cai intake from AMD. First impressions out the box are good. Looks like a solid bit of kit. Didn't realise how big the inside diameter of the pips where lol a whopping 90mm lol.

    So on to fitting . firstly stripped the old engine cover and all nesscary pipe work . piece of cake only struggle I had was the clamp on the turbo intake pipe but got there in the end.


    Engine bay stripped


    Next was to unscrew the MAF sensor from its stock postion .



    Then reinstall it into the new silicone pipe with the new screws supplied.




    So with the careful and potentially most expensive bit out the way next was just to fit everything loosely and get it all where I want it . Then just tighten up.

    Also new my stock engine cover would we obsolete so purchased a TTS engine cover off a ASN member and installed that at the same time. As i am not a fan of cutting the standard cover to suit the new cai ..Can't believe how easy it was to install the cover. Here are the end results .







    Very impressed with the kit and the quality of it. Can feel the difference instantly with the different intake on . Car will still be adjusting to the new intake as only done appx 50 mile since fitting so will keep you posted .

    All comments welcome

    The quality looks pretty good tbh, well thought out & almost minimalistic design.

    Is the bit of metal blocking off the engine area (or something similar) available on its own? My p-flo didn't come with anything like that.
