Thinking about some mods. First thing I thought I might try is the air intake. Anyone ever do this? Worth the money? IPD site talks of increased hp and better gas milage and I wondered how true it is.

Re: K&N Typhoon Intake (JonC70)

I've also heard that there is a computer / controller mounted inside the factory air box, and that the K & N cold air intake kit re-mounts this, but it is subject to HEAT / OVER HEATING, and possibly causing problems.<p>Don't know of anyone that has used it, but I was thinking of the same upgrade, and put the idea on the back burner until I find out more about the possible problems / warranty issues.<p>Keep us informed.

am in contact with S40Boy (from swedespeed forums) who delivers also a cold-air-intake for the 2.4i engine ... have ordered one as I am missing the 5-cylinder sound ... in combination with the T5 exhaust-system I expect to have a beautifull sound ... especially in tunnels and so <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">
