      Posted this on another forum, but would like to try and figure this out before dark so here goes.

      So today i finally got my evom v flow intake in, and i decided i would go ahead and install it, but either i am missing something or just plain dumb..

      It didn't come with any instructions but really didnt' think i needed them, so i started got all the stock stuff off and saw this



      but there is no where to connect the existing hose.



      Where does this piping go?

      Do i have the wrong elbow? Do i need to make something? AM i just dumb and missing somehting??

      if im not mistaken that pipe you haven in your hand replaces the one coming off the turbo that you have in your pictures

      correct, but the other piping that comes before the blow off diverter has no where to run, i think they sent me an mk5 not where that is all underneath the engine and not in front like the r.

      I think he's asking where is the bung for the recirc hose on the evoms intake which, I'm not seeing either.

      Yeah, looks like they sent you the wrong intake if you ordered one for the Golf R.

      you are not the only one with this online curse.
      I seem to get the wrong stuff all. the. time.

      and it's always a pain in the a$$ to return stuff too.
      but I have nothing around so all my 'car stuff' comes mail order.

      Did the intake come with an S shaped plastic pipe that runs over the mani? I think you may have a TSI or a MK5 intake as well. EVOMs is cool as hell, so Im sure they would make it right straight away. Hit up the dude over there named Ian.

      unfortunately i got it through redline motorsports because they were a bit cheaper, but this may have been why lol. i have called and emailed them and still no reply so hopefully i will hear something by tom. On the bright side it did give me the time to give a high gloss polish to the Evom heat shield.

      1 less thing to polish lol. Yet one more chore to redo the intake again

      yeah that is most def an mkv fsi intake (same engine but different turbo in your R) as well as the reloacted diverter valve

      sucks but redline is good you gotta remember its friday most places dont answer emails over the weekend for the most part as there is really nothing they can do until monday im sure they will take care of you on this issue might just send you the new piece instead of a whole new intake
