      Hm, not a bad idea. But if you want to get a real feel for what the intake alone adds to your car, best to do it alone.

      Plus, the intake install will be cake in comparision to the other stuff. lol. Intake shouldn't take longer than an hour. Puck can take considerably longer depending...and engine mounts, not sure but I'd think also a little more involved.

      I don't. I have it all connected. Although I keep considering the idea of doing the noise pipe delete and placing that cap on that one end of the intake tube.

      That pipe is called a noise pipe. As far as I know, it's designed to reduce the amount of noise into the cabin.

      Good, then with that, everytime I change from 92oct to 93oct this will also be a mod. Not to mention when I change the OEM VW cabin filter to the one sold by ECStuning that didn't come with the car, forgot vanity plates too...

      It's not that, just think listing .:R line pack as a mod makes the OP look goofy, whatever...

      This is a valve that is attached to a spring which activate autonomously based on ambient temperature. The spring shrinks as the temperature lowers causing the valve door to open, this allows warm air to be inducted into the intake system thus speeding up the warmup time of the engine on cold days.

      When I ran OEM airbox with a K&N drop-in filter, I removed mine, as it is attached to the wall that compartmentalizes the box, opening up the surface area of usable filter. I then capped off the hole left in the side of the airbox with one of those plumber pipe caps that has a rubber portion that expands to create a nice seal. I live in Florida so I don't need this feature.

      Yes it can! Thanks for the pics. I never posted a pic of how the intake looks sans the heat shield cover. Should add that pic to that AFE intake review thread I made.

      you can use that pic.

      Also I realized, the flapper opens up a lot more. Used to open up at high speed and high rev. and now around ~ 4k rpm it will open. make the stock pipe sounded nice....

      Jelly of your LED's.

      To this day the sight of an HPA puck before it's installed makes me smile. Such an awesome piece of hardware.

      waiting on my next pay check so I can get the rest of stuff then my stage 1 mod will be almost complete.
      Question, should I get the dog bone then install them together or just install the puck for now then do the bone later?
