    I see that revo do 2 intakes and the only difference I can see is the one is ceramic coated to help with heat sink. Is it worth the extra money or have you gone with the normal one which I assume comes with a heat shield like the itg I currently have.

    For every day normal driving, I do not see the point really in having the ceramic coated intake - at the time, I didn't have a choice as it was the only one available.

    Hi Adrian, as Boydie says the Street version is great and more than capable for road use. however the Camcoat one does help with reduce intake temps if the car is being used hard. Midland VW are big fans and report notiable improvement between theirs when doing back to back testing and dyno runs.

    Recently fitted a Revo Air Intake, which was a doddle. The induction noise is awesome, and driving through tunnels sounds immense. Matches the Revo Stage 1 perfectly. Increased MAF readings by 20 g/s which roughly equates to 16 bhp (g/s x 0.8).

    What intake do people normally go for now? Revo, AMD, MTC looks like a good option for half the price?

    I think that with Revo,AMD or ITG,you wouldn't be disappointed.

    Each will perform well,and should easily cope with Stg2+,and for sure,the ITG,whilst not exactly good looking,is good for a LOT more,and I would expect the others to do as well.

    Even I would say this is functional rather than nice looking.....

    You could easily gain another 5hp Alex if you put your oil cap on the right way round :p

    So long as it keeps the oil in,I don't care!

    It's kind of like putting R8 oil caps etc on.....form over function.....if it provides a benefit,like the IE cam cover,I'll buy it and get it fitted!

    Was also thinking about getting the forge replacement diverter valve the one in this vid



    Reason being is the standard one sounds stupid and chavvy, it's got a stupid tsssss noise like heard on subarus.

    I liked the sound my forge 007p made when the air was coming back through the filter on my 1.8T creating a deep recirc sound similar to the one in the video, unless adding an intake makes that stupid tsssss noise a deeper noise like in the video?
