Exactly what I have done to my R32 - and it's been like this for maybe 60,000 miles or more now (total mileage is around 106000 now)thinking of getting a k&n pannel filter and drilling holes in my air box underneath...or is this stupid whats your thoughts?
mk5 box into a mk4?Or you could go down the MK5 DSG airbox and snorkel route.. But you'd need a remap to take into account the larger MAF.
No, you keep the existing MK4 bottom part of the airbox and add the MK5 top part with the larger MAF and i think it's an 80mm snorkel tube as the direct feed from behind the N/S front grill, attached somewhere near the temp sensor..mk5 box into a mk4?
what the hell?
the mk4 DSG intake pipe is bigger, I've fitted that too, but to be honest you get the same results from drilling the box, or fitting a large diameter flexitube to the box.
8years ago the DSG mk4 pipe was cheap when I did it. nowadays it's something stupid like £60 for the parts, and realistically there is no gain
That's why i said keep the MK4 bottom half, the MK5 top half including the larger MAF should fit.. There's a how-to somewhere..mk5 airbox is 100% different to mk4 airbox though?
are u possibly getting your facts mixed up?
Sorry, it's just the MK5 MAF, not the box, just realised i was getting it mixed up because i had MK5 in my head..Show me obiwan
Yeah that's right, i was getting mixed up what with having the MK5 MAF in my head.. My apologies.What I think RJH has got mixed up with is the MK4 DSG airbox and snorkel. As you know the MK4 was available in mainland Europe with DSG from the factory. These models had a slightly different design of airbox and a snorkel which allegedly gives better airflow. Some people therefore fit this to a manual car for slight improvement.
