    As we all know, when you fit an aftermarket air intake such as an Evoms or Forge, you lose the ability to fit engine cover (something I am not fond of).

    I notice that the 2.0T TSI engine has the detached airbox (unlike the TFSI) with a separate engine cover.

    Is it possible to fit this engine cover to a TFSI engine running an aftermarket air intake?

    Will the attachment positions be the same?

    Yeah that doesn't look bad.

    I do really like OEM though.
    Would love the TSI to fit as I think it is a smart looking engine cover.
    I like the cut-outs for the coil packs.

    We contemplated for my A3 and my mates Edition 30, without looking into it can't imagine there being to much difficulty but would be interested to hear other peoples experiences with it

    So the TTS cover is a direct fit?
    Any modifications needed?

    you can use the TT-S cover or trim yours down quite easily with any kind of cutter to remove the OEM airfilter and tract section.
