Look at the ITG panel filters they are excellent.

Had an ITG filter in mine when I had the standard air box and it was very good, freed things up nicely and made a good noise, if budget allows might be worth looking at carbonio kits that relocate the filter low down in the wing.

thinking of getting a k&n pannel filter and drilling holes in my air box underneath...or is this stupid whats your thoughts?
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)

Pros - lots of beefy induction rooooar when you get on the gas, its nice and meaty, and compliments the increased noise from the milltek exhaust.

Cons - nothing really I can think of. I've had this set up now for countless years and well over 60,000miles and I haven't noticed any problems or downsides.



you can see the holes I drilled here. The more you drill, the louder it becomes...

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.
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

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..

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.

Yeah that's right, i was getting mixed up what with having the MK5 MAF in my head.. My apologies.
