    Hi everyone I have recently fitted a ITG CAI to my S3 and the one bit the has stumped me is the heat shield part my friend was adamant the metal part faced the engine not the filter and I thought the metal part faced the filter. Also it was a bit of a pig to get that heat shield fitted in there snug. Has anyone got some photos of the ITG with the heat shield on so I can take a close look?

    also I was wondering if the new revo heat shield would fit instead as its a nicer looking heat shield?

    i'm thinking of making custom shield/air feed...
