I have been looking on Awesome GTI website and they have a carbon fibre intake tube for the 2.0TFSI engine as the standard one is quite restricted so as i am off work till the new year i thought i'd investigate to see how restricted the standard one is. I didn't fancy paying £135+vat for the carbon version! Looking at the whole set up it does look quite restrictive so i decided to de-restrict and here's a FAQ guide on how to do it. So the thing in question is the pipes from the front of the car leading to the air filter on the bottom right hand corner of the picture. Remove the cover from the top. Undo the screws at both ends of the middle section. Remove the connecting pipe, good old mole grips are handy in this step!!! This is what it should look like now Remove the middle section (its held on with 2 clips on the side and 2 at the bottom Remove the section which fixes to the front of the car (its held on with 2 screws on both sides). Now time to remove some material. I used some snips to remove the plastic on the part that sits on the car. Then used a knife on the middle section. And once you are happy with what you have done then refit back together! Any questions please ask.
