    That looks good mate, did all the pipe work come with the filter?

    I put a ram air filter in mine.

    i put mine straight onto the throttle body with a cold feed to it.

    But would prefer the way yours sits as I looks like it has more cold air feeds.

    Hard to say, probably more torque especially from take off when it's cold.
    Faster from 30-60 and 40-80 and 0-60 as well
    There is a good noise that comes off it. Not overly loud though

    Intake Growl - YouTube

    have a listen

    That sounds really good, like you say not too loud.

    Mine seems to growl a bit as its straight onto the throttle body.
    I find mine can be a bit sluggish don't know whether that's down to the blown flexi pipe
    how old is you car? Mine is an 05 plate.

    Yeah I like it, only makse a growl over 3k rpm so can still drive appropriately.
    possibly I had the same problem but recently but the bullet and got a new one, also if Iv been driving the car hard for a long period it's not as responsive due to sucking in hot air aswell as cold.
    mine is a 57 plate with 62k on it.

    I think that's why mine is a bit sluggish from the hot air it's sucking in.

    Mine is an 05 on 62k miles, need to see about the silicone hoses and get it moved closer to the bumper out of the road lol

    Why are people bothering with an air intake on a 1.6? The gains will be laughable.

    For me it was more for a bit of noise rather than power gains.

    Like below sound mainly. The gain might be minimal or questionable but not laughable.!
    better way of saying it

    As the setup you have will be sucking in majority hot air.
    What do u mean by cutting out the fog light part?

    Yea must be sucking in a whole load of hot air, a bonnet scoop would work well but not for an audi lol,

    At my fog lights there is no space as it looks blocked off

    that why I want to go for the same kind of set up as you have

    If not I got a 76-63 90degree reducer and a 76mm 45degree angle the reason for 76mm is ~3" so what ever size you filter is go for that size, as long as you have 63 for the throttle body your good.
