    In my opinion, there is no point and the sound will not be any better. You will get obvious suction but the car will benefit more with a remap and just a panel filter from Green.

    Thats what I had in my TDI and it was 175bhp 306lb/ft and went rightly!!

    Apparently Forge are in the middle of developing a TDI CAI so keep an eye out on the forum.

    I bought my panel from Green directly - just go to their website and use their online shop

    I went to a local tuning company to do my TDI remap. I didn't use any of the expensive brands like Revo, GIAC, Superchips etc....

    The map is still on my old TDI and has been for at least 60k with no issues!
