    Hi, just wondered if anyone has fitted an aftermarket air intake to their A6 - e.g. Induction Filters from K&N, Pipercross, Green etc.

    I can't find fitted kits just Universal ones.

    Anyone have any recommendations - are they worthwhile or just a waste of time.

    Thanks,

    Mark.

    I reckon you'd be better of with just a panel filter rather than a cone.....the oil from a cone and bugger up your maf and also IMO they let more hot air in from the engine than cold, unless you use some kind of piping up to it

    I guess that might be a better idea. I wanted to do some basic tuning rather than dive right into ECU remapping. Any ideas on where to start? I had thought that Air, Exhaust and Dump valve was about the right way to go.

    they are all a good start, but a nice remap will pull them all together nicely afterwards :)
