    Dbilas or EVoms air intake are the general recommendations.

    Forge Intake.

    Or, if you want something a little more discreet, Carbonio intake, with a better panel filter (BMC) will improve mid range response, but will NOT offer as good gains at the top end as the others.

    Hi mate,here's a pic of the Forge i've just installed

    Pros: you get more blow off sound from the DV,you can hear the engine breathe better,performance definitely up!,made of polished aluminium,so it deflects the heat better.
    Cons: like all induction kits of this type you lose the OE engine cover...aftermarket ones are available,or you can mod the original,awkward to fit/service the air filter as it sits behind the fog grill.

    Notice that the heatshield isn't fitted...i'm just waiting for a 12point 24mm socket to undo the plastic engine cover mounts,then i'll get round to it!

    I love it though....

    I've had the Revo for a year now on my S3 and 37,000 miles still loving the car and the performance but I like the idea of helping it to breath better.

    Mine is a company car so i can't mess around too much with it by putting on things like the Carbonio intake, is there any value in just changing the panel filter of is that just a waste of money?

    the messing around bit is fitting the panel filter. You can have the carbonfibre bit of the Carbonio on and off in a couple of minutes

    Apologies for the confusion, by messing about i mean, I don't want someone to lift the bonnet and say "why isn't this car standard" ie mods need to be stealth.

    It's wicked, I can't recommend it and Vagcheck enough. I made 307.5bhp & 328lbft (and a great looking dyno plot on dyno dynamics rollers) with just a conservative remap. I now have the milltek turboback and vagcom is suggesting over 330bhp and significant torque increases. I have a carbonio to fit and the remap will be tweaked again then it will be going back on the RR.

    Thanks mate. Did you eventually settle on an intake yet?
