      You should add a heat shield to your kit as well

      Please note the one piece construction, and the mounting foot that holds the intake from rattling about while hanging it sideways in turns.

      Any IAT measurements at idle and at speed vs stock?

      At idle the AIT is below freezing, and under heavy load it's even colder, we're thinking about making one out of carbon fiber to make the ricers jealous too.

      So that's a no? I'm curious as to how well the unsealed filter area works.

      Thanks for leaving your logo off that 8th picture from the top; otherwise I would have splitting headache by now!

      Pricing is $329.99 shipped, if anyone with a Golf R wants to put together a GB we'd be happy to pass on some discounts to you guys.

      My apologies, I will put them off to the side and make them smaller next time.

      It's basically the same as the TSI intake we've had on our project snowflake/K04 for quite some time. We just put it on today, and we were tied up with a coilover install. I'll see if I can dig up something up for you, the air box seals against the bottom of the hood quite well.

      looks a lot like a BSH intake....

      hopefully, there is a rubber damper for the bolt by the battery....I can see the bracket failing from the engine movement.

      No problems at all with this intake, works very well on the project Golf R so far:

      I like it. If i didn't already have the EvoMS intake, I would absolutely get this. Your containment area for cooler area is better than the one I have with my Evo system.

      I like choices, but the decision making process get's that much harder!
      Why no cover on top of filter?

      Thanks GTIVRon


      If anyone's interested in running a GB on these or the Golf R Direct Fit FMIC kits let us know.

      We're open to ideas for a group buy. We'd need a minimum of 5 guys to get something going, standard price is $329.99 shipped for the Golf R intake.

      I can't quite tell from the pictures, but it looks like this could almost work with the stock engine cover - does it?

      We didn't try, but I think it would require some modification on the Golf R just because the cover is a fair bit different than the other 2.0T's. We didn't think a TSI cover was indicative of the true Golf R anyway, so we were happy to see it go.

      Have you ever seen these signs on the road? “Keep right except to pass”… We have too and far too often we had to move over because the guy in the M3 was passing us. We had equipped our Golf R with all the bolt-on power upgrades we could, intake, exhaust, downpipe, FMIC, Eurodyne Maestro 7 programmable software upgrade etc… Unfortunately we still found ourselves keeping right more than we had hoped. So we decided to take it upon ourselves to make this car fast like our old MK5 2.0T project car. I don’t know how many enthusiasts have seen the bottom of a Golf R with the drive shaft and turbo off, but here you go:
