    Carbonio B5 A4 1.8T Cold Air Intake

    Would this be ok to use on a 2.4 v6 model, i know most things from the 1.8t work are the same/similar to it...Also that the standard air filters seem identical. But dont want to buy one, without confirming it [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    I don't think it will fit although don't quote me on that...

    Take a look at the pictures of it on their website...

    http://carbonio.net/a4/a4_b5_intake.php

    Interestingly, they also make a carbon fibre engine cover similar to the Forge one but with vents in it [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    Re: Carbonio B5 A4 1.8T Cold Air Intake

    Yea thats what i was going to get originally, but i wanted to see if i could fit the carbonio instead [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    Doesn't look very promising though....It's just that it look so much beefier [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

    Also is that mounted on your suspension mounts, and is that a custom bit of tubing i see? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    No it not mounted on the suspension and the only bit of extra kit I have other than the standard fitting kit is the MAF converter from Deemons.

    And the custom gaffer tape [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    I must admit, every time I see that picture I can't help but admire how beastly that engine looks [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    They do look cool. not much space for anything else [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]....What does the BMC mount on, surely it can't be loose [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

    The fit is so tight that fixxing it is not an issue As the pipe coming off the duct intake takes some bending and it retains it shape.
