    I want to upgreat my intake. But I can't decide what to do, because nobody can't tell my which option is the best.

    One option is CAI, but I am not sure that is safe option because water can go inside the engine.

    Other option is this

    Neuspeed P-FLO™ Induction Kit with Neuspeed Hi-Flow Intercooler Pipe Coversion 2.0T

    Maybe some of you have already done something with it.

    hmmmm ....

    I would be 100% sure that the intake you get has all the plumb-back fittings ie. recirc valves fitting.

    I put on a custom intake based on the Forge 2.0T GTI intake.

    Gained around 25wkw, and it now gives a "squirrel under the bonnet" chirp when you snapchange gears ;)

    goodluck with that ;)

    the cai,s look nice but i,ve just gone for the green cotton air filter cheaper and there won,t be much difference in performance i don,t think

    I am looking back to find good intake for my new S3 sportback :)

    I thought that only air sport filter or Carbonio will be enought but, my mechanics said that it would be better to instal Forge CAI or EVOMS V-flow, because air filter in S3 is behind engine is rather hot then cold...

    I am a bit confiused what to do... ?

    I wouldn't spend the £150 on a Carbonio , either spend £250 on a forge , EVOMS , Dilbas , or £30 on a decent panel filter.

    If you would like something pretty to look at under your bonnet then go for the Carbonio, other than that it doesn't really have anything else going for it over buying a £25 panel filter..

    All of the full intake systems as listed earlier in the thread will add some performance.

    I run the EVOMS intake with the MAF heat shield, and filter heat shield.. I have also covered the intake above and around the turbo area in heat reflecting tape and fitted a cold air feed from the LHS fog light grille directly to the filter itself..

    The intake is now running super cool and the gains over the OE intake/engine cover feel huge..

    Heres a pic..

    [​IMG]

    Evoms intake - £275
    MAF heatshield - £25
    Heat reflecting tape (depending on how much you buy) - £40
    Cold air feed with venturi - £40

    Well worth it IMO..

    Hey

    The intake is a standard v2 EVOMS intake for the 2.0T FSI cars with remotely located DV (hence the DV recirculation pipe)

    I purchased all of the parts from Regal Autosport here in the UK who are the official Evolution Motorsports importers for the UK

    Thanks

    Jonny

    Looks like i checked out this thread just in time!

    I was considering the Carbonio,it sure looks pretty,but further investigation leads me to believe it's just a glorified intake:crying:

    Now i'm leaning towards Forge or the Evoms you mentioned....just a shame i moved away from Southampton....Regal were 15 mins away! Doh!!:(

    ....and now even more confused,just checked out Regals website...and they offer the Dbilas Flowmaster....to their knowledge,the first dedicated intake for the large turbo (K04) 2.0 TFSI 8P £325.01 inc vat....similar to the Evoms,but without the extra cold air intake.

    Any thoughts??

    Dbilas is also a very good intake..

    The reason I went for the Evoms over the Dbilas is that the Dbilas runs an enclosed air box and therefore will be quieter than the Evoms kit and I wanted some noise! ha..

    Either way your going to end up with a very good intake system which offer very similar gains in performance, I would say its more down to the level of noise that you would like..

    And when I say noise its not like a jet engine, just an enhanced version of the OEM intake sound..

    I would say that its a must but for sure it helps reduce the heat soak from the turbo into the intake pipe.. and its only £25..

    Hey guys

    Most of the S3 guys down here in South Africa have opted for the Forge intake. Only one available locally for the S3's here. Typically seeing around 15-20wkW increases with the intake on. I'll be fitting one soon as well but still weighing my options. We have a distributor for EVOMS but their current intake is meant to fit the GTI and not the S3. Quite interesting to see that your UK distributor has the DV relocation parts that have made it fit to the S3.
    In any case, I had contacted EVOMS about this and they stated they are currently busy with an intake designed specifically for the S3 and it should be released in July. May be interested to check it out then.

    Jonnyc, do you have a link to the part that feeds the cold air directly from the fog grille to the filter. I have noticed that the Forge intake sits lower down to take advantage of that whereas the EVOMS intake is higher up in the engine bay. Concerned me that it may not be getting as much cold air as the Forge one and didnt know of a solution like on yours. Also, what were the power and torque gains after you fitted the intake?

    Thanks!

    My EVOMS intake was actually the development piece produced by Regal Autosport to aid EVOMS in producing a solution for the S3/ED30/Cupra 2.0T FSI engine..

    Yes the forge intake sits lower down in the front bumper, I bought different pieces and manufactured my own cold air feed using a 100MM venturi duct which sits in the front grille and routed 76MM ducting directly to the filter

    Works really well and the car certainly feels quicker after fitting all of the 'cooling' mods.. Next thing for me to do really would be a Forge twintercooler, not sure if anyone has done this yet on an S3?

    I thought you would of gone down the fuel pump route Jonny?

    Have you seen the curve on the plots of the cars ( ED30 and Cupras ) that have had it?

    There nearly flat.

    Thanks jonnyc!
    Dont know any S3 with the twintercooler. Not sure how effective it will be for the price. S3 cooler is pretty good as it is. I do know a few guys down here who've gone with water/meth injection as the next mod and its been working great for them

    BT on the way? LOL

    The fuel pump cars are hitting peak power at 4500k revs and holding it to the limiter...must be fast.

    MotorCade in South Africa who does all the Ford ST induction also does S3 induction kits now for almost half the price of the Forge it seems (saw link on the AudiClub of SA). A pipe is a pipe is a pipe no?
