    Just my opinion, im an engineer by trade and i can see there's more engineering gone into the ITG.
    I guess what really matters is how they all perform on the rollers would be intresting to know !!
    Surely making a one-piece custom pipe involves more engineering than using a bunch of off the shelf universal hoses and pipes? I'm not an engineer, but I certainly didn't think the ITG kit looked well engineered in the slightest.

    Horses for courses though isn't it?

    As mentioned before, Pipercross have put me in touch with a dealer who's keen to help with a group buy, so if there's at least a few people interested in giving this a go, I'll get some prices over
    Thanks. This is a very good thing as it means the MAF housing diameter pretty much conforms with the stock MAF housing diameter which is a very important. The stock MAF housing is 67mm. I have already ordered another intake so won't be joing a GB I'm afraid although so far this intake looks very good.

    Wow I don't want to set off a major debate....but from an engineers view its just a mandrel bent piece of tube with a filter on the end which can be made in no time.....I.T.G could have done the same thing but didnt ...Why ??
    They have looked at the Science behind the air flow etc,there's a good write up on here by Warren (i think) .
    Again its just my opinion and a rolling road session with the ITG,Pipercross,Evoms,diblas,forge etc would solve the issue on "what to buy" doesn't matter what they look like its the power gains at the end of the day .

    Any of them will be decent - just depends on your budget and personal preference

    If that's the newer "TSI" engine then no good, but they said they're working on a kit for them.

    Yes mate it is. The 09 S3 uses the FSI engine just like any other 8P S3.

    Not true, the 09 S3 uses the "TSI" engine rather than "TFSI" engine - it runs a different air box, so a different intake is required.

    Sorry but that is not correct. The S3 still runs the FSI engine, VAG have not managed to bolt a K04 turbo onto the TSI engine in any shape or form yet. The A3 uses the TSI but not the S3. Even the new Golf R is an FSI although it even says TSI on the engine cover!

    When I said it was "TSI" I was referencing the VAG badge on the engine, rather than the technology involved.

    To the best of my knowledge the 09 S3 uses the later air box design. One easy well to tell:
    Air box on top of engine = Earlier engine (that this kit will fit)
    Air box in front of engine = Later engine (this kit will not fit)

    Yes VAG have confused people with their engine badging as they do not want you to think they are using older technology under the bonnet.

    Trust me, the 09 S3 uses the same FSI engine and the intake will be built into the engine cover.

    Sorry, you are dead right, the site I checked the info on was wrong...
