    Hi folks
    i am here to ask for expert advice on my a3 1.8t. I wanted to know which air filter/induction kit people would consider the best for these cars in terms of power gains? And best place for mapping?

    sorry if this has been covered before but I have limited time to come on here as I have no Internet at the moment

    thanks

    badger5 or r-tech in the UK,

    a jetex filter would be the norm as to you what most people are using.

    Hello,

    Another great air intake is the Neuspeed P-Flow kit, we always have some great reviews!

    What year A3 is it?

    Look forward to hearing from you soon!

    Awesome Mike

    It's a y reg 2001 a3 1.8t. How much are the kits? And what sort of power gains? Enclosed or open cone?
