    Hello All,

    Im after an Induction Kit for my 2.0 TFSI but I cant seem to find any on the net. I can only find replacement Panel Filters.
    Has anybody seen any anywhere?

    No the list kind of contradicts what it says when you put the model and engine details in.

    I WANT IT! Nice price though! I normally go for K&N but they don't seem to do a kit for the B8 2.0TFSI.

    That works out at £287 but the retailer in the UK has just swapped the $ sign for the £ sign and charging £449!!!!!!I have just emailed the company in the US asking if they post to the UK. We should see if they will do us a deal if we buy 2?!!!! ...........or Group Buy anybody????? ;)

    Now if i can just persuade my wife that its someting I 'need' and the car 'must have' then put me down for 1. Anyone got any experiences of these? Noticeable difference or is it just an aesthetic mod?

    Awesome GTI sell the APR Carbonio stuff. I think it's quite highly regarded on the tuning scence but it's kinda pricey.

    Hi,
    Why bother with an induction kit.in my opinion thy are a waste of money.
    But you can buy a Carbonio induction kit from Apr, and Awesome for around £420.00.
    I have got an ITG panel filter in my car and it does run and respond alot better than a standard air filter.
    This was the first mod I done to my car.
    I would put the £420.00 into a Revo remap and as there is an offer of 20% off a remap at the moment It will only cost you another £59.00, a total of £499.00. Now believe me this transforms the car and is worth spending money on.
    The offer is on until the end of the month.
    The ITG panel filter number is HMP-631.

    As I've said above, APR are charging a hell of a rip off price for the carbonio!!!!! I'm just after a K&N Induction Kit. They seem to make a lit for every other 2.0TFSi VAG car but not the B8, which seems weird considering its popularity.

    Induction kits for the B8 are still thin on the ground. In fact the only options around the world are the APR Carbonio from the US (£430), the BSR from Sweden (£160) and the K&N Typhoon from the US (£330).

    Having read all the reviews from the US, the K&N Typhoon has the best reviews. I was impressed by the slight increase in throttle response from the K&N panel filter I have so I'm hoping for slightly better things from the cone filter. For some reason K&N don't sell this kit in the UK.

    I will post up my results after fitting.

    Well that's new! Certainly towards the end of last year when I looked they weren't selling it and when I contacted them last year they said they didn't have any plans to sell the kit in the UK! Must gave changed their minds now. Interesting to note though, that it says it's not suitable for right hand drive models! Don't know why that would be!

    Anyway my kit is on its way, so I'm hoping to receive it and fit it this weekend. I will post a guide/pics/videos up.

    Yeah thats right. Normally you only get something around 5bhp increase in power. Apparently the claimed 13.5bhp is due to the 2.0 TFSi being quite restricted and detuned as standard.

    I ordered my one from the US.

    Well got my induction kit fitted today. Abit of a fiddly job but got it fitted ok in the end.
    What a noise it makes! You can hear the sucking in of the air with the dump valve making a fluttering sound like a rally car, on the gear change or lift off. It's not too loud as to sound like a boy racers car.

    Used to have one on my Escort Rs turbo and loved it. I would like one but £300 quid is a little bit excessive for an air filter :(

    Thanks for the heads up. I could knock one up for a lot less than that but it would not look very pretty !
