    In fairness as its a 1.6 NA you would get away with a childs sock on the end of the MAF... joking aside its not an 80mm MAF... not actually sure what size it is tbh but you can measure it easily enough and just get a cone filter suitable for that...

    I had a Green Cotton cone filter on my old 1.3 Mk2 Golf... it sounded awesome and actually made the car feel a little quicker :)

    haha i was thinking that tbh so just go for a standard universal one?
    just check measurements before i guess its an easy fit?

    Do the s2000 filters any good or are they for the s3's?
    just looking for a nice easy fit as im an amateur to this game.

    Thanks Again Tuffty.

    Something the size of the s2000 might be over kill on a 1.6 NA... this is what I had on my Mk2

    even though it says 1994-1997 would this still be the correct one for a 2001?

    Think the maf's are like 63mm or something along those lines. Might be easier measuring your maf sensor diameter then getting a cone filter that is that size

    So taking out the panel filter and measure the maf is my best bet? How can I upload pictures keeps saying it's too large for the server to handle it's only 2.2MB?

    In my opinion it is, won't need to buy an adaptor then and you really don't need a S2000 size filter on a 1.6 anyway. Measure the maf size and have a look on jetex's website, they probably do a filter that's the size you're looking for

    messaged the person on ebay regarding that filter and adaptor and they dont fit my model of car, i think your right there tbh johnny, so just take off the casing etc measure the MAF and find a fitment for that is no one sure what the fitment actually is?

    The side of the maf that goes into the airbox, is that just a round circle or does it have 4 bolts? If it has 4 bolts then you're going to need an adaptor, a cone filter isn't going to go over that lol

    Sorry I've not seen a vag naturally aspirated maf in ages

    Yeah it's got 4 bolts to it so will that eBay link be any good? With the air filter and adaptor? Haven't got round to measuring it yet but it's definitely not a straight fit will need the 4 bolt adaptor can you link me to the right place?
