      I saw that one but it's for the GTI, MAF is in the wrong spot and I didn't see one for the 2.0t fsi engine. I ordered the VWR intake and I'm going to patiently wait as that's my final mod for awhile. I'm happy with the current performance of stage 2+ with HPFP and Milltek TBE sport cat non-resonated.

      Yes, I believe so. Engineering just did a lot of data collection yesterday so I'll go through it to see how it all stacks up.

      Let us now Arin. I'm getting the VWR intake regardless but I would love to know what I am going to be running.

APR flash and the APR fuel pump.......then dyno.......APR Flash, APR fuel pump with this intake......then another dyno ! Not trying to start anything! I just want to have a source other than APR. A regular human if you will. Well........I guess none of us are really normal

      Looks like my intake just shipped!! Perfect timing, as I'll be able to have it installed when I go stage 1+ next Friday.

      Where did you order from? I called APR again today and was told that the delivery was pushed back and it would be another 3 weeks still. So I canceled. *shrug*

      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 ordered from APR. I got the final invoice first, and then an email from UPS. This was around 2pm PST.

      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?

      It rains down here all the time. Hard. And we have good tires and carelessly drive fast in the rain. You'll be fine. There's even a drain hole if you happen to get some water in the intake box.

      My EVoMs CAI increased top end hp with an APR stage 1 tune. Saw about a 13hp increase at the wheels from just the intake on a stage 1 over stock. Saw very slightly lower peak hp with 1+, (much better torque curve tho).

      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.

      Used to be around $650-700 before APR got their hands on exclusive distribution rights recently - now its around $900.
