    CAI for the TDI

    Hi Guys

    Im after a CAI for the TDI but want it to work and not just to look good, is there one which everybody goes for im sure there are many or are there more than one.

    Also i heard the recirculating DV does nothing either on a diesel, i also have a 20v Leon cupra with BNC bolt on air filer and Forge DV that works a treat.

    I contacted DPM today and he only sells panel filters, this is ok if thats all we use on them but alot of the threads are for petrol.

    This is my 1st diesel car let alone DSG, so im quite new to all this.

    Cheers in advance

    TBH fella, you could get a green panel filter & slide that in, anything else imho is a waste of dough on a remapped 2.0 tdi, now if you went hybrid turbo or even serious upgrade then yes exhaust & proper CAI would be an idea, but you wont see much difference if any with a CAI on the car as it is, green panel maybe somewhat minimal less restrictive, but you probably wont notice anything, but your choice, but you wanted something functional, spend it on a decent worthy & more noticable mod mate.

    Dump valves do nothing for diesels performance wise and just make a noise. As already stated a full CAI is a waste of money on a unmodified TDI but some people use a "performace" panel airfilter. I have my old BMC CDA airfilter for sale in the classified section for 75 if anyone is interested though.http://audi-sport.net/classifieds/sh...ct/4195/cat/15
    06 Audi 2.0 PD140 Sport TDI Quattro S-LINE.
    Old engine 330 bhp @ flywheel 263 bhp @ wheel 490 lb torque. Audidriver write up HERE
    Now stripped and playing with an uprated Cryo treated engine fitted with bigger turbo,water/methanol,uprated injectors etc etc.Wanting 400 bhp and 500 lb torque.

    Other car 500+ bhp MK4 Golf R32 turbo.
