      Took me forever to find this

      That was shortly after I started running my mk3. Simple setup into the high 13s. Made 185-187whp like that.

      I tracked that car from that point down to a 12.833 and if you search "allmotor" in this forum and/or the mk3 forum you will find details.

      - CAI (a TRUE CAI)
      - Ported exhaust manifolds
      - Full exhaust 2.5 - 3"
      - Cams (268 Schrick would be my choice)
      - Schrick manifold (not completely necessary but does help with low end torque)
      - MK4 headgasket
      - Tune (UM would be my choice)
      - Lightweight pulleys and flywheel (not much here for HP but helps engine rev much quicker)

      With all that I still think you would be a bit shy depending on how "fresh" your engine is....

      I did this CAI a long time ago, the black part is from a Honda Prelude cai "3 and the chrome part is an adapter 3" to 3.5" that I found on ebay
      I try to replicate the turn2 model which is now a rare piece.
      So for those who do not have CAI here an idea

      Don't forget ported/polished head & lower intake manifold, & valve springs/ti retainers, & B5 1.8T intake air temp sensor. With those & everything you listed above (minus Schrick intake manifold), I made 185whp on a bottom end w/ close to 300k miles. I'm sure it would have been closer to 200 with fresh rings.

      What does the different intake air temp sensor do?

      Reacts faster to air temp changes and less prome to heat soak
