    It may well be dude, easiest way to tell is to measure g/s of airflow on Vagcom

    Are you using the standard TIP?

    It's a modified tip, its been reinforced. Not my doing, it came with the engine. I have a liquid guage I'm sure you can see airflow on those?

    Yeah its not like we`re just picking fault..its just a proven fact that they`re fairly restrictive on turbo engines.

    +1 just trying to help a brother out.

    I think the liquid gauge uses g/s to calculate power, so if you were to try a different filter type it might make a difference on there

    Same as mine :thumbsup:

    i put the Jetex cone on yesterday and kept stalling so its going for a remap next week as the Jetex show impressive gains on K04's so on our K26 there should be even more to be had!

    I bet all the yellow car owners love the fact that everywhere you drive there is someone punching another person and saying "yellow car". They all look great, especially those massive matching porsche brakes!!
