    Any body here got or fitted the QuickShift induction kit
    i'm just in the process of doing it now (11:45 am saturday)
    and i'm confused about where to route the cold air feed pipe.
    Does it go through the same hole as the original breather pipe or do i route oout under the engine bay some how?

    thanks in advance.

    Ir i remember right there is a hole in the front wing that can route down to the bottom of the bumper . You'll probably have to remove the battery to get a good fit. Ifyou look at the group buy thread for these im pretty sure some1 posted some pics of fitting. Hope this helps,Ta

    That pic looks like Gambba's Quickshift. His is a Pre-facelift A3 (98 I THINK) so IIRC he fed the air feed down along beside the battery to the front lower grill. However, on the newer 8L A/S3's you can feed the pipe to the original hole in the wheel well, it only requires bending the feed a little to make it fit. This was done on JayBeeS3's Quickshift. I'm sure there are pics, so will look and post it if I find it. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Cheers for the picture, thats not the way I thought it would go, judging by the inner I thought the end where you can see the filter and gauze pointing inwards would be the intake side not the MAF side, but heywhat do I know
