      My cone is not right on top of the MAF housing. The cone goes on a v-stack and then I even have 3 inches of silicone to connect the v-stack to the MAF. I would think it would give enough room between...

      I am in no way saying a cone won't increase power. I am not saying the ECU cannot alter all other controllable aspects to match the increased intake. What I speculated was the dramatic vibration in...

      Would you happen to have the numbers still and mods corresponding to each dyno run? :popcorn:

      My best guess at why you get more vibration with just an intake is because of restricted flow after the engine. Increasing the DP at the same time would probably eliminate vibration.... but that's a...

      Again, the guy has a 180Q. You have a 225 and have drastically altered your car, for the better I might add. Everything you do compliments the other.

      Having said that, I did not say that the cone...

      I was replying to OP.

      Not sure if it's your motor mounts or something else that ultimately reduce engine vibration in the front end and steering column, but I'm guessing either your tune says...

      But when running an aftermarket intake without the tune for it you will be messing with your engine. Your ECU will automatically try and calibrate for the increased air intake (or so I was told) but...

      I've had black/blue smoke come out of my exhaust when I was in boost before. My PCV was broken at the time so I couldn't tell if I had any power loss (was always at 5psi), but anytime I was...

      Bleh, it has Ferrari designed suspension. It was, for a short time, the fastest car around the Nürburgring. It's luxurious and has less little issues than the TT I'd suspect. It doesn't have a...

      Welcome. Nice TT. Love the seats :beer:

      The TT shouldn't lose traction in the snow even though it isn't AWD 100% of the time. It uses Audi's Haldex system which engages the rear wheels when the...

      You should take it to a mechanic. If it thinks the wheels are slipping and they're not, you're getting a knock instead, I'd first check the driveshaft coming from the trans back to the haldex...

      Well yeah. You're blocking lets say 85%-95% of the vent diameter with your gauge. The restriction will reduce the amount of flow going through that vent and instead reroute it to the remaining 3...
