    I think you would loose power from this, you are likely to get LOADS of heat soak.

    i got a bmc forced air kit. fits perfect and i fed the cold feed pipe to fodlight grill and front of car. sound mint and seemed a bit quicker of throttle pick up. not had bhp check but im happy looks good sounds good. i onestly think you will never get a huge increase from a induction kit. just my opinion though

    i have fitted a simple cone filter. removed the standerd box, made some holes in the wheel arch liner, re-located horn to the bolt hole the old air box bolted to, ran a big arse induction pipe down to the vent were the spot lights are. to get round the hot air being sucked in, i removed the heat-shield that was attached to the standerd air box, reshaped it so it kinda curved round the cone filter (leaving about a 2" gap between filter and H/sheild) and i now have a nice filthy sounding spooling sound, hissisng when the boost gets up and a nice medium volume flutter when i change gear!! works fine, sounds good, looks pretty cool too!! ill bang a pic up later!

    Now to many mods to list! Lots of power, torque and Leather!

    Just be careful running filters with an oil in them, can bugger up your MAF over time pretty quick. I run an AEM dryflow filter.

    Pipercross is oiled IIRC
    Apexi as mentioned is dry and pretty sure AEM are too, you can buy just the filter on its own, popular with jap cars

    i am proberbly going to have the piss taken out of me for this but this is the air filter im running....



    cost 25 from my local autostores. only difference is my 1 is silver not red.

    Imo it sounds no different to any other filter.

    i will now bow my head and wait for the many lashings across the neck!

    my iduction pipe is 5" in circumference.

    no real heat shield will see your intake temp rocket when you slow down or stop on the above set up.
    I ran a similar filter and the mesh came away from the housing, v. disappointing.
    great noise though.
    I housed mine in a large converted Stella Artois aluminium keg. worked a charm

    I've ran this filter for over 2.5 years without problem, wether i go slow,stop or put my foot down it's been excellent in all weather and temps not noticed any draw backs from temps getting too high.......I agree, the noise is top though.....It's the K&N 57i induction kit......

    It would be good to see your converted keg if you have any pics....

    Yep your right about cloggin up the MAF, only if you OVER oil your filter though. Not had to change one in over 2.5 years so far(touch wood)....Gotta agree with you on the sound, it's wicked.....

    No question is stupid if you dont know the answer....chapter 3 verse 1....lol...

    Mines mounted with a metal plate/hanger that bolts to the body of the car. If you look at the front of my filter towards the wing you'll see a couple switches/connectors that used to sit on top of my OEM filter . I had to mount them on a metal plate/hanger aswell and that bolted on to the inside of the wing. I got everything i needed and fitting instructions with the kit.

    The kit is specific to your make and model of car. IE: mine wouldn't fit a standard A4 but it would fit a B5 RS4 as we have the same engine/layout......You might be able to get universal kits though???

    mine is just a jubalie clip holfing it on with a little rubber O ring for that extra seel. as for the filter its self it just sits on top of the induction pipe quite snug. cant say its ever moved. if your going for 1 tho, make sure you deffo heat sheild it. (on a 1.8t) anyhow as its slap bang next to the turbo and cat. burnies! i used the standers sheild off the air box and it works a treat, filter is cold to the touch when the engine is hot enough to cook on!
