    Hey all. Ive done so well at not having to ask anything but I have been unable to find what I'm stuck on.
    I bought a jetex cone filter and I'm unsure what to do with two bits of hosing. I was wondering if anyone could help me out as I don't want to attach the two then find out I shouldn't have etc etc.

    So I have a hose coming from the car (the one not going anywhere) and then the silver looking one coming off the filter itself.
    Any help I would greatly appreciate :)

    Thats the secondary air injection inlet... you should fit a small filter to it really or do the SAI delete (links in the stickies...)

    Another question, installed that all fine, however my diverter valve now seems to be making a dumping noise when I take my foot off the accelerator. I had a look it all seems attached and the hoses are all ok. Is it dying or could something else cause this? I presume something is up as its always been quiet.
    Also coilovers now fitted and I have the driveshaft rubbing problem. I was reading a thread about replacing the arb with an s3 or tt arb. This would solve my problem? I don't have the money now to buy a better one, so it would just be so I can drive my car.
    thanks if anyone can help.

    The DV noise is normal as you have fitted an Open Filter.

    I can't help with your other problem however. Unless shorter drop links would work?

    Ok, I'm not mechanically minded, so I suppose I will have to go get it checked as two different views.

    Anyone know what the lowest you can go without the arb hitting the driveshaft? I read so much but there doesn't seem to be one cure that works for everyone.

    Thanks.

    Well if you want to really drop it, you need to be looking at other arbs, like neuspeed. Or you could just get the coil overs adjusted, I think the max is about 40mm before you have driveshaft fouling?

    As long as it isnt fluttering, the dv noise is normal after fitting a cone filter.

    Yeh, I want it low. I read that standard is 19mm? So I would need one the same size as that? I see them at 25mm etc.
    How about...FK 23mm Front Anti Roll Bar A3 8L 1.6, 1.8, 1.8T, 1.9TDi FWD 08/96> - £115.00 : The premier online mail order VAG suspension and performance specialists. We offer a wide range of all the best branded suspension and performance parts for all VAG vehi
    simply cos it is cheap, I wasn't planning on doing my arb quite yet so it wouldn't be forever.

    Ok, it just is loud, but only from inside the car.

    The DV will seem louder ,
    Nothing to worry about there.
    Anti roll bar wise... ive only ever fitted one. That was a white line item from awesome gti,
    Some people dont like them but it worked fine,
