Can result in increased MPG bump.. granted you can't enjoy the fun, exciting noises and power but when has being responsible been fun?
Do you avoid full throttle use in your 2.5L mk5 because the intake sounds like a mouse farting under a pillow? I feel your pain and found myself in a similar situation until I purchased this amazing intake.
Whether it's the engineered goiter in the carbon fiber, the fact that the intake no longer snakes around under the engine cover or pure magic.. this intake will change your 2.5L into a fire breathing monster.. OK, not really but you'll pick up a tremendous amount of usable torque and a few extra ponies. People will also believe your claim that you have half a Lambo under the hood.. truth.
And that mouse farting? Not only is it replaced with a howl that scares small children and the elderly, it will also have you searching out tunnels and overpasses just to run through the gears. I'll stop short of saying it will change your life but if it doesn't put a smile on your face, buy a Kia and step away from the VW.
The intake was installed on my car for about 15,000 miles and the filter should probably be cleaned soon. It is currently packed in the original box, with all the original parts, paperwork and packing materials (yep, you get Styrofoam peanuts), you'd be hard pressed to tell it was installed at all.
