No, tape will not work. Order one without a hole.
if you get the one for the rabbit, yes

I've had this intake for probably somewhere around a 1000 miles At first i threw the CEL because of a MAF code along with a system to lean code. I've since taken the whole system apart multiple times and re-worked some of the problems that I had after the initial installation. My CEL has come on multiple different times and each time we have tried to re-work something but the motor still throws the P0171 system too lean code. Am I missing something or Can someone be sure that I have a vacuum leak somewhere.
I am not looking to crack on this product, but since my professional install of this product on Thursday morning, September 11th, I have had nothing but problems!
Before you discount the quality of installation, the installer has experience as head VW mechanic and had an article written about him in a VW enthusiast magazine. He is very competent and skilled.
I had to return to my 2008 VW Rabbit 4d Auto/ESP two times the day of repair. First because of the binder clip and then because of a CEL.
The day following the repair, I had to return again because the nut that attaches the L binder to the fender bolt came off. I also had a CEL.
The day after, yesterday, I now have a CEL again.

I'm getting it next week, so hopefully there will be no cel. My guess on why people are having problems is because of a vacc leak. Also, what about the oil from the K&N getting into the MAF? I've seen that cause problems on mkIIIs before. On the mkIII (2.0 and vr6) you can clean out the MAF w/ rubbing alcohol (91%).
So that others don't make the same mistake, this kit will not install on a 2007 Jetta that is not the MkV version. I got most of the way through the install only to find that the right-angle intake is about 3 inches too long to install in the engine compartment. I have pictures that show the installation with the right angle resting on the front quarterpanel because it doesn't fit.

you ordered the wrong intake. all 2.5's are the same. and all 2007's are mkv's. you probably ordered the one for the mkiv
They're going to their house over there.
