      An air intake isn't going to do much on a turbo'd motor since the air will be super hot by the time it hits the turbo anyway. I run the EVOMS V-FLow on mine and really like it. I chose EVOMS because I liked the way it looks in the bay and it sounds good in my opinion. An air intake on your 20th won't do anything but allow you to hear more dv noise. If you want more performance get some tuning done. Bang for your buck, a good tune will give you the most on these cars. I suggest Unitronic or Apr.

      Get it chipped first. Then add a filter on a stick later if you wanna hear the DV.

      Im on a tight budget I know an intake would be cheaper then a tune. The intake would give me the dv noise and a deeper engine noise as well correct? Im just not sure what intake route to go theres so many, and i need to get that nasty big filter box out of the bay...
      suggestions would be appreciated

      Really a cai is just a noisemaker. If you're on a tight budget, then save for a tune.
      My 20th is currently: clean/dirty girl, out for the summer/hiding from salt and sand, CEL on/off. I currently love/hate my car.

      If your on a budget the last thing on your list should be intake. Tune, DP, turbo inlet hose all get you more bang for your buck as far as HP gains. Besides, you already replaced the DV. Time to actually put it to use with a Stg 1 tune. Throw in a K&N drop-in and put the money you saved on an intake toward something else. Good luck

      Induction kit...advantages = Noise. You dont gain anything from it tbh. I fitted a ebay jobby to mine and it sounds nice. Nice loud spool and dump from the engine i also have a 008 Forge valve on mine.

      If your going for performance its better too keep the standard air box and put a panel filter in it once remapped.

      Hehe, this one costed me about $50 to make.



      The keg was $20 + a night of fun
      The filter was about $25, you can spend more if you want a K&N one which I had laying around
      Coupling was $5 or $10

      Cold box


      *AEM Dry flow filter
      *3in - 2.5 elbow where the snorkel was
      *2.5 inch vacuum hose tucked against fender and feed to lip or bumper grill
      * (optional) I added collectors because i found one inside the box lid.


      Looks stock from a glance gets all the "performance" with the efficiently of the box

      You can at least justify a K&N or similar drop in filter because they are cleanable and it'll save you on filter costs in the long run

      Many will recommend a dry-flow drop in because you're less likely to over oil the K&N and damage your MAF. Honestly though, I didn't have issues and I ran an oiled K&N for 65k miles. They're not exactly idiot proof though.

      Im in the same position with ya, my friend has an APR intake it just makes it louder, I dont feel a performance difference between my stock one at the moment. Just save up for the tune up!

      Looks like he took a 3" flexible elbow from home depot, cut it in half, and attached a filter to the other end. I'm thinking of doing the same thing or just ordering a cheap CAI off Amazon for like $60.

      Was the only thing you removed was the air box? you still have your MAF?

      The MAF is still there. The elbow connects to the end of the MAF and the filter to the other end. I assume he used this DIY from the mk4 cheap mods thread.

      Did you just get a Spectre 3" filter? I've been trying to find someplace local that sells AEM dryflow filters but so far no luck.

      Yea i went off of the diys in that thread
      Yea i was originally looking for a k&n or an aem as well but they didnt have the right size and no aem's so i went with the spectre 3"
      Quality seems just as good

      An ECU flash will provide the best bang for buck, then a 2.5 to 3 inch turbo back exhaust will be the next best value.
