    Dp Motorsport's Simota Audi 1.8T carbon intake



    Well ive been to Dp Motorsport today and picked up there Carbon intake. Im really happy with it and the sound and grunt is buzzin.

    The only problem i had was the pipe where the maf sits the hole was to small for the maf to sit in. So i filed the hole bigger. Ive spoken to Dp about this and theywill see what they can do about the pipe



    Here's alittle step by step

    Pic of the old airbox


    Remove the airbox and intake duct



    Remove the maf from the oem housing



    Test fit before fixing anything down (see the hole which ive had to make bigger




    Install the maf making sure its facing the right way there is a little arrow on the top this should face the turbo.



    Mount the amplifier on the mounting bracket very easy to do

    It's was suggested that may be there should be a heat shield to help prevent the metal pipe work from getting too hot as it does now sit right over the turbo and cat and that metal pipe will absorb all the heat and stay hot.

    Watch your mouth i aint a child! Theres no need to be a twat about it is there mate i was only asking. Your the one who asked for me to show you what i thought was the DV. Havent had the Car long so i dont really know whats what. Maybe you should stop wasting your money on these bits and save up to have your motor sprayed a decent colour because what ever you do its not ever gonna look nice!

    Mine isnt under the car and i aint ever moved it. In that pic with the arrows pointing the crankcase breather, my DV is located just to the right of that.


    billybravo - You will need to make sure you keep that amplifier cold as you know they hate heat. Will the standard intake hose not fire air right on top of that? or will it not fit anymore.

    Mind that when the car is sitting still the heat will build up round the filter and the amp.

    Its a pain in the arse that Audi didnt put the amp in a better place to start with like the other side of the engine bay away from the hottest part (the turbo). I have mine under the standard air intake hose and kind into the wing aswell.

    i havnt tried that beerzo but i will at weekend ive also wraped the crome pipe now in kevlar so there should be no heat issue with that pipe no more (there wasnt that much heat building up anyway after a good long hard run the pipe was warm i could hold it in my hand. Ive wrapped it now so there shouldnt be any heat at all till the turbo) then the front mount should take that away

    If their sales service is anything like their products, they will be ****e! I have emailed DPmotorsports 3 times and they can't even be bothered to reply. I guess they must have too much money, custom or ignorance!!!!!!
