    Thread: noob air intake question/turbo intercooler question

    1. 04-08-2012 07:35 PM #1
      So like most people, i have very little money, and just want to do little things to my 03 jetta 1.8t

      I was wondering if this http://www.ebay.com/itm/Cold-Air-Int...a2c973&vxp=mtr

      intake will be ok for my jetta. it's nothing special, but i thought maybe it would be something little..

      I also want to upgrade the turbo intercooler, and was wondering what people of bought for there cars.

      I know post like these get posted all the time, and for that I apoligize. I did search the forums, but just couldn't find the answers I was looking for. Thanks.

      I wouldn't trust an eBay filter, what I did was install the biggest filter I could find and went with a AEM dry filter and did my custom tubing with stuff from http://www.siliconeintakes.com/ total cost was around 70 bucks and with parts to spare and a much better filter element

      well...the 2 mods you've chosen will not help your 1.8t at all.
      the intake doesnt boost hp, and if you spend more than $25 at autozone making your own you have paid too much.
      a bigger intercooler is only needed if you upgrade to a bigger turbo.

      save $500 and get a unitronic/apr tune
      I'm not a star. Somebody lied.
