Gives me time to dyno my Stage 1+ numbers before and after the VWR intake. I want to get a definite idea of how much the intake increases power overall and whether/how much it decreases low end power.

Hey guys, we have had the VW Racing intake available in Australia for a while now - i got mine in October last year. It's very well made, looks great and fits perfectly (better quality than the Forge intakes in my opinion).
Below is a picture of it installed with Audi TTS engine cover, and also a short video showing the sound.
I understand why you want the engine pulling air from outside the engine bay. But what happens with these sealed systems when it's raining hard while driving?
The way the stock ram air thing is set up, the air can pass straight through the gril, into the bay. The intake is on the top part of that high air pressure area. Theoreticaly water could enter even the stock set up. But with the bottom open, the water should fall away.
Where is the water going to go in the sealed system (if not into the engine)?
Do you have to open the sealed intake and empty it/ dry it out after heavy rain?
I am not sure of an advantage the VWR intake will have over other systems, but my guess will be that any CAI will increase power on the :R.
