    Air Filter

    I finally jumped ship, had Stage 1 Revo done today, I was told that a change in air filter would also make a difference, a sponge washable one, was told of some names but cannot remember, Thoughts please people.

    I have a MTM racing panel filter, cost me Ł150 and is meant to increase airflow but 30%. Throttle does feel slightly more responsive and higher speeds are more smoother. And this might be up for grabs later, I've decided to get a bigger induction kit, I was given the kit at such an offer that it would be rude to refuse

    The MTM one is under audi warranty, its just the spongey bit (this goes in the standard factory air box) and is not an induction kit. Here's a link:

    Yes this one is for life and washable (like most of them) the ones which go for Ł40 or Ł 50 are the green cotton, K&N and ITG to name a few. But I know the MTM one is expensive but if your really interested I can do a really good price on the one I have (i've only used it for about 300 miles)

    You mean a MTM fanboy, I know im with the minority with the likes of revo and gaic fanboys out there, but they have given me a great service and out of loyalty i've stuck with them, that's all not because one is better then the other. Plus my local revo dealer just went t*ts up (glasgow drivers) and is closing down, and the other nearest dealer is about 80 miles away in fife.

    Green Panel Filter Ł45ish that'll be your best cheap route & MTM are just a rip of full stop IMHO & I agree if you paid Ł150 for that then you must be a mug, sorry but its a panel filter, christ for that you could have bought a completely new induction system or close to huh.

    Ill bear the Perth one in mind. MTM have promised me a stage 2+ remap but if they fail to impress, I will be going to revo. Plus the reason I got the mtm filter was to keep audi happy to with warranty, I know it was a bump but since the car's coming out of warranty soon, Ive already planned on getting the ITG 'stage 2' induction kit, really can't wait.

    Go for it mate. Revo is the way you need to go. GIAC is ok but with Revo you can set you own settings. Not a lot of info on MTM going around.
