      Fred, little word of advice on the install. DO NOT use the supplied hose from the VC to the mani itself if you want to avoid a minor headache down the road. This hose over time tends to collapse in on itself because its not strong enough to hold up to all the oil vapors. Get yourself a silicone hose or something stronger and throw that on instead. They might have changed the hose since I bought mine over a year ago but I doubt it. It should be good for 2-3 months tho if you just wanna get it on there and hooked up, but deffinately swap it out. Looks good all polised up .

      Being a vw owner for only 44k miles now, i hadnt really gotten a chance to do anything to 'Jett-Li'. And when i saw the price of a certain 2.5 intake retailing for $280, i was a bit dismayed to say the least.. 280!?
      So, after warming the engine up a little and prying off the cover, i discovered the maze-like route for air (barely) getting into the engine- not enough i say. I unplugged the two hoses that attach to the black plastic bend before the MAF, and removed the air shroud attached to the back of the grille- so i came up with those two parts as extras. One 3",90° silicone bend, and two hose clamps from the Saab later- the Jett feels and sounds cooler than before! $280.. for an intake?? YUH right. how 'bout $4.99 for two hose clamps, and an extra k&N lying around the garage?
