    I'm a little confused what you mean by legal? I take it you are trying to enclose the filter to give a more stock look? If so can't say I've seen this done and have contemplated this myself many times. Im not sure how (or if even atall possible) but closest I can think of is possibly salvaging parts from the 2.0 tsi intake system

    If you closed it up wouldn't it restrict the airflow ?

    Not necessarily. I will be having a induction pipe coming from the side as well as the face on as well and under will be open still.

    You need to have it enclosed to be street legal unfortunately in Australia. They come up with legit but stupid reasoning's to why it needs to be covered so im wanting to enclose it for now.

    Will have to put some perspex around it.

    What about something like the BSH True seal?
    You could modify the enclosure so it creates a seal when the bonnet is closed?

    Does that get passed our stupid rules?
