Oh - hold on are you talking about the normal R32 snorkle? Because the discussion is actually about the DSG one.

The DSG R32 snorkle is bigger and is what is being discussed in this thread.

The regular R32 snorkle is about the same size as the one from a 1.8T or regular VR6.

I have a Van Aaken Smart Box and their .205 nozzles on my Golf. Would that give me enough extra fueling to make this mod beneficial at all?

I doubt it. If you have a read through the thread you'll see that benefits are small unless you're runnning a fairly large amount of bhp. Even then it's not large benefit.

That's not too bad: I have to buy all this stuff again for my Golf. I was going to go with some kind of CAI with louvers in the front fender but I know how OEM works and Jeff can tune for it. ibanix, you'll have to get a re-tune for the larger MAF: it flows more air but at a lower velocity, so the ecu will under-fuel. Lag is the result. A re-tune will fix it.

Did anyone notice a "large wooshing sound" after this upgrade? My setup has quite a bit of airnoise to it especially getting on it in the lower rpm range...

Yes, you mean the vacuum cleaner sound?

At first, I had hard time distinguishing the intake WHOOSH from the exhaust WHOOSH, but now I can. (I added the OMI well after the exhaust work)

Here is a shot of the battery box lid. It was late, so my trimming is kinda clumsy, but it shows the area that must be removed.

And here is a shot of the lower box and the snorkle wrapping under and around. The view is from the drivers door looking forward towards the headlight. You can see where the lower box was trimmed as well.


Again, sorry it took so long to get these shots.
I am thinking of getting ahold of a full battery box and tray from a vr6 or 1.8t to see if it will not interfere... I suppose you could also mod the battery box to move it further inboard by about 1/2" to provide clearance.
Did the tdiclub picture server take a dump, or has something else happened that the images are not showing?

I don't actually have a larger MAF holder/sensor yet. After I do this, I'll have:

R32 snorkle, R32 lower airbox, stock upper airbox, stock MAF holder/sensor, stock flex pipe, and your TDIparts 2.5" OMI.

I know I'll want to go with a large MAF housing eventually, but unless I'm greatly mistaken, I'll need the $$$ PD150 flex pipe and intake pipe (OMI/TIP).

If you use a PD130/150 airbox lid, maf housing and intake pipe and use the pd130 MAF itself it'll work fine with no tuning needed. I've done this on my own car a while back.

Just had Jeff install the RC6 on the NB, with the MAF delete, therefore Iwill not need the larger MAF at all, correct. Mine is unpluged and just setting there now.
