    Cold intakes only get results when the engine bay is very full and the car is sucking in lots of hot air rather than fresh cool air from outside... nice idea, but the Viper kits are a bit pricey for the proper COLD air induction...

    Try some performance filters first (Green Cotton / K&N replacement panel filters)... induction kit will be slightly more free-flowing, but can be a lot louder (unless that's what you're after?).... jsut keep the old panel setup if you do go for the induction kit,s o you can switch back if and compare again further down the line (I didn't keep mine for my golf :( )...

    Id never get bored of the V6 Rumble.Doesnt sound half as "raspy" as the 1.8t K&N.More of a Burble!
    Piper are pretty hard to come by for certain Models though.
    I used to have the ITG Panel filter on my Scooby and that was a Nice note for the Boxer engine that did sound just like a V6 Rumble.

    On these 1.8ts, i used to have a K&N and that eventually got on my bloody nerves so took it off and went with a Green filter.Spot on!
