just been told about this CAI soon to be available from Carbonio.
thought some may be interested
quote borrowed from awesome gti
"Developed in co-operation with the leading names in automotive tuning and produced using cutting edge carbon fibre technologies; Carbonio cold air induction systems combine the best in established air intake design principles with an innovative use of the latest materials.
Each Carbonio system is produced by hand utilising carbon fibre manufacturing techniques usually reserved for Formula 1 and the aerospace industries.
Carbon fibre's unparalleled ability to insulate against heat, its high strength to weigh ratio and its unique aesthetics have allowed Carbonio to create induction systems that not only perform but also look the part.
The Carbonio system is designed to maximize the torque produced by your engine. The natural extension of increased torque is an increase in horsepower (hp). While the hp gain is nice, this system's tuned shape will give you that increased hp for a longer period of time, thereby allowing you to make better use of each and every gear. This is a consequence of an increase in torque for over 10% of the rev range; torque comes in sooner and tails off later. Compared to the stock intake, our kit shows increased flow numbers of around 40-50%. More interesting is the velocity at which the airflow in the system changes. Our system is much more dynamic than the stock system, and thanks to a specially textured inlet surface, results in a much better throttle response. In the case of the 1.8T engine, a significant reduction in turbo 'lag'. "
