So you are using the PD150 MAF without issue?

So I am guessing that a VR6 MAF Housing with a TDI insert in a VR6 upper airbox, (or does the PD150 Housing fit the R32 upper? ) with the R32 DSG lower airbox and snorkle would be the hot ticket then...

What is the difference between a VR6 airbox and a R32 airbox, (besides the hole for the larger snorkle on the R32)?

Another mod that doesn't add power. Right.

I'm running an r32 lower with vr6 upper. The vr6 maf housing I have does NOT fit in the R32 upper.... The diameter is nearly the same, but the way it fits in is slightly different.

The PD 150 MAF seems fine. I will probably put a Pierburg MAF in the holder when I have it re-tuned because I want to be able to not have a tuning issue if my MAF fails. The re-tune is necessary regardless because the air flow in the new intake will be slower, causing the MAF to under-report and therefore reduce fueling at part throttle, as I understand it.

The VR6 and R32 airboxes look the same except for the snorkel size. And I had the same experience as Justin: the VR6 or PD150 MAF won't fit in the R32 airbox top, even though it looks like it should. I've got a lot of random airbox parts around now.

So the bottoms are identical except for the snorkle inlet? COOL! 1 less thing I need to spend money on.

Justin,

Looked at the parts at Impex today while fanofalldiesels was installing his ecodes. None of us could figure out where the battery box interference was located.

Hopefully, your install pics will shed some light on the situation.

Could you mate the stock TDI upper airbox with the R32 lower airbox, instead of using the VR6 upper airbox?

Justin, is it the VR6 (top portion) airbox that has the interference? Or the lower R32 portion?

Lito

So does:
Airbox: 1J0129607AK
AIRCLEANER $91.55

...Include the top and bottom or just the bottom?

Also, I want to replace my MAF housing with something bigger since I am about to remap... What is a good combo of airbox top and housing?
