    A friend of mine did it for me, he is planning on making a few and selling them if he gets interest.

    That was part way through the build.
    We are planning more with maybe forced induction at some point plus he wants to make one out of titanium.

    If that's a metal pipe expect it to get ridiculously hot and send your air temps entering the turbo pretty high. Pipe needs to be made of carbon or low emissivity plastic etc

    Standard pipe is metal and many other after market pipes are metal, if I see high temps I can just make a heat shield.
    I’m not planning on driving around a track so heat isn’t really going to effect it or the way I use it.

    Standard piping is heat resistant plastic. Many aftermarket intakes are cheap and make piping out of metal, because it's cheaper.
    Actually on a track it would not be too bad since there is constant high velocity airflow so it stays cooler. Its during daily driving where the engine bay heats up, traffic, low rpm low intake velocity this is where the intake will heat up and heat the air travelling through it.
    I'd suggest wrapping it in heat reflective gold foil or the like.

    I was talking to the Revo development guys the other week and they were explaining the design of their carbon fibre intake. The time they have spent developing and testing it was incredible... I'd be more inclined to get something like their one, albeit it is very expensive.

    @Dodgygtr Has he started selling these yet? Would they fit the PreFL RS3 Sportback?

    I could do with everything apart with the cone! I don’t think he’s gonna be selling these though?

    Looks good and given that 2.5 golf r running 900bhp has an open cone filter of similar design it obviously works
