Now I have the '05 Jetta mkV 2.5 and im assuming that its the same design as the '06-'07 design? And has anyone had problems with this CAI on the '05 2.5?
OK so I have had the Carbinio CAI on my 2007 Rabbit (with the MAF installed correctly) for almost 8 months and now when it gets cold i throw a cel and the dealer said it is because the temp. sensor the 90 degree angle sensor everyone is talking about is not on the intake AND IT HAS TO BE IF YOU HAVE AN INTAKE.
I now need to either drill into the side of the carbon fiber intake or get a totally new one.
I also need to buy a new Mass Air Flow Sensor (MAF) because running with my proportions off of air to fuel has caused the sensor to get messed up.
SO either get a BSH or be prepared to drill into the CAI if you have the 2006-2007(maybe 2008) designed motor.
The newer design doesn't need either sensor.... so this works fine for the 2009+

I agree. I've had this for nearly a year on my car and the sound is amazing. There's a bit of power difference and my MPG increased a bit as well. And to answer the previous poster's questions, it's the same setup on the 2005.5, so there should be no issues.

Sorry guys if I asked another noob question, Im just trying to figure out what we bought with our first ever German car. I have the '05 Jetta mkV 2.5 and im assuming that its the same design as the '06-'07 design? And has anyone had problems with this CAI on the '05 2.5?
Not sure about a 3rd sensor, I didn't remember hooking up the IAT sensor if thats what you mean. Not sure that the 05.5s have it. The MAF needs to be placed in between 2 pieces of the intake and the SAI tube connected. All pretty easy if you follow their instructions. My tip is to make sure the engine is warmed up before attempting to pull off the engine cover, that makes it ALOT easier to remove.
So I just bought this intake from DBC performance. I have a 2008 should the temp sensor be able to be instslled in the new intake or do ai need to keep the old intake piece and it plugged in there? if anyone has this set up and some pics it would help alot. Also do I need to get a MAF insert?

You have a 2008, you don't have a temp sensor to worry about, it's built into the MAF. And no you don't need a MAF insert as the intake should come w/ one.
They're going to their house over there.
You're not utilizing your education properly.
Does anyone know the dimensions of the FILTER for carbonio itself?
i want to buy another air filter while i recharge the original one from carbonio...
Does anyone know the air inlet diameter , the width and the length
and will there be a difference longer vs. a smaller one? Im guessing the longer ones will get better air intake?
It comes with directions. Only recommendations I have...
Don't tighten any of the clamps until it is completely installed and aligned.
Make sure the MAF is pointing in the right direction. The arrow signifies direction of airflow.
Don't forget to put the cookie cutter thing in.
You can install it without removing the wheel, but it makes it easier.
Remove the bumper skin and you don't have to remove the wheel and gives you alot more access
I have a 2009 Rabbit. I know that it will work on my car but is there anything I need to know about sensors and such? Also what is the deal with the engine cover and the stock intake? Do I have to remove them? Is there any benefits to taking it off or leaving it on. I read something about a sensor that you can leave in the stock tube or get a intake that is tapped to accept the sensor. Does this apply to '09s? Thanks dudes!

Doesn't apply to the 09's. Only benefit for no cover is reduced weight, which is very little, and may reduced engine noise, but you're getting an intake so I don't think that would be a problem. Otherwise, there is no reason to keep it on, unless you have no where else to store it. I'd say eventually get a beetle 2.5 engine cover to replace it.
it won't work on the 2010 Golf... because of the lights..they are too big... check out the NEUSPEED SRI...that's what i ordered after trying the Carbonio..and i love it!!!!
2012 CW GTI 6 speed manual, APR stage 1, Carbonio intake S1..(for now)
I was looking at getting a new filter (mine is getting old and has been cleaned several times) and was wondering if one of the tapered ones would work just the same. i don't see why it wouldn't but just wondering. It's a 3.5 inch ID filter by about 5 inches right? I also saw that some K&N filters have this plastic guard kinda looking thing that goes around it. Since i don't have fog lights the filter is directly in the stream of all that dirty air (i drive on dirt roads a lot) and i'm thinking one of those plastic guards might help keep the filter out of the direct impact of dirt, bugs and water.
what do you think and where should i get one of those guards?
Hi guys, I´m sort of reviving this thread.
I have a 2009 Jetta sportwagen with the 2.5 L engine and auto transmission. I bought the Carbonio CAI kit and had it installed yesterday.
Off the bat we faced a problem. The kit has a Carbon fiber section with two sections to attach vacuum hoses. My car has only one vacuum hose.
The installed made a plug for it and finished the job.
The intake worked great yesterday.
But today after driving a few miles I got a CEL light.
Specific codes where
P0101 Mass or volume air flow A circuit range/performance
P0171 System too lean bank 1
Additionally I think the transmission went into limp mode disabling S mode and manual shift modes.
Can any one help?
Thank you very much in advanced.

i just installed the apr carbonio cold air intake today...pretty straight forward installation...there was a piece of flat round metal that had spikes on the inside...where does this part go? i didn't find it in the instruction manual included...also i was thinking of installing the 2.5 beetle cover...where is the best place to get it? i see ecs selling it for about $95 and a VW part store is selling it for about $79 shipped
any help/advice would be greatly appreciated(new forum member)
