    Autobahn88 intake pipe?

    Has anybody fitted one of these? If so was it a bad fit?

    Mine's pressed tight up to one of the bolts on my turbo and I had to really stretch it to get it to reach the airbox properly!

    I'm not alone then.. hope it's not a reflection on the FMIC too as I've got that to fit in the next week or so!

    A bit concerned about the head of the bolt on the turbo rubbing/puncturing the hose but I suppose I'll just have to keep an eye in it. Hope it's not a case of 'buy cheap.. buy twice'!?

    My intake was tight but i could not see any issues with rubbing. Now for your fmic you will have to cut as i remember but someone on here has done it.

    Had a look at your previous thread re. FMIC & BRAKES.. Going to have to cut the bumper (metal) and re-drill the brackets then. Not too bad I suppose.

    Obviously be much better if it fitted without any modifications but you can't have everything hey!?

    Yeah.. I'm slightly gutted as my bumper is only about 5 months old and I'm chopping it up.. hopefully be worth it though.

    you saying the Autobahn one went on your current car with no cutting mark? Or very little?

    I had to cut some maybe half inch\inch for the autobhann one to fit behind my standard bumper, and its a similar thickness to the one i had only my old A4 which had the S4 front and that needed the same amount of cutting.
