    ello guys

    Im still looking for a induction kit suitable for the S3 but all the ones i have found have oiled filters on them so they arent suitable due to the potential problems there are with the MAF getting contaimated with oil. So this got me thinking. Is there any reason why you couldnt move the MAF sensor to the other side of a after market Filter. Is there any reason why you couldn't do this /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif The only draw back i can think of would be that unfiltered air would be going straight onto the sensor so could get **** on it, would i be just solving one problem and creating another.

    Whats your thoughts.

    As Rich said you just move the MAF as the filter will always be restrictive, so the air flow would be different before and after.

    If you are looking for an induction kit then take a look at www.dbmengineering.nl, as they do carbon boxes and foam filters which don't need oiling, as JayBee discovered after a brief phone call to them....but be warned the kit is around €900.
