    Sorry to bring this up again but has anyone tried S3Daves heatsheild on an A3 and does the MAF fit through the hole properly because i know the MAF is a smaller diameter than the S3 MAF. Also does it seal against the bonnet and would a cold air feed improve over the standard intake from the wing? Anyone notice any difference running a heatsheild?

    Another one from S3Dave - thanks a lot mate!

    So far so good, took it out for a spin and just managed 268.3bhp calculated bhp... Surely I've done enough for stage 2 remap :)

    Nice pics everyone, I'm starting down the light tuning road so forgive my ignorance but I still can't see there could be much more airflow with these cones than from standard set up. I mean with these heat shields as well when the bonnet is shut most of the actual filter itself is encased from any other available air except from the original air intake pipe & surely some of that can escape over the filter unlike if its directed straight through standard airbox. Thats just how it looks to me :think:. Anyone else on here have same thoughts or am I missing something. Again apologise for any ignorance.

    cheers
