The 1J0129607AK is the complete airbox, with airfilter pre-installed.
The price at impex is more than the price at 1stvwparts.com. Split the order for best pricing, but calculate seperate shipping to see what the savings really are.

Lito
I think that the piece that goes under the headlight is the one that will touch the battery box, Justin can you verify this ?

With the stock airbox and battery cover, I just don't see where the interfence is going to be.

Delvi, can you please post some pictures?

The box also comes in a cold climate version, but do we need this? I'm guessing the spring loaded flapper is only there to prevent engine stall if the main opening becomes clogged or frozen over? Is there any other reason why we "could" need the cold climate box?

Crap. My wife has the camera... She's been using it for work, othewise I'd take pics right now.
The under headlight portion is what guides the snorkle. The larger size snorkle is just that, larger. It places the larger snorkle just a bit too close to the battery box. The interference, as I've stated before, is along the side of the battery box, where it contacts the snorkle and snorkle only...
Again. Sorry I've not had time to take pics. Seems every time I have a moment, the camera isnt here!

look at the 2 snorkles together. The r32 one is alot larger, and the increased diameter is the culprit for trimming.

I'm assuming this really won't benefit a stock set-up on a PD?

Thanks

I've annotated this borrowed pic to show where I had to trim.

Default Parts from impex

well the parts came in yesterday from impex, but I just find out that the stock north america version of the R32 airbox is too small for the big intake snorkel

so I call impex to see if I can get a airbox ASAP so I can install everything on the weekend

here is some pictures of the parts.
looks like I will be bussy on the weekend

[IMG][/IMG]

and this one is very nice just to give you guys an idea of the size

I got the air box from vwvortex from a US spec R32, that hose on the picture is just part of my other upgrading project, that one goes from the MAF to the PD150 inlet pipe(OMI) hopefully I will be able to install the PD150 intake manifold and the BF SMIC all at once

Delvi, order the airbox from 1stvwparts. Its where I got mine, and it will be alot cheaper!!! What is the part # on the airbox you got on vortex? It should have been 1J0129607AK, or if you must have the cold climate euro version with the flapper, impex should have it... IMPEX SKU # 331945
I should add that you can mod your stock airbox to fit as well....

as promised, finally I've taken pics of the trimmed battery box.
here is the view from above. You can see the snorkle along side the box, and kinda how it goes underneath.

here is the same view with the lid removed, more clearly showing the snorkle and how it tucks under the trimmed area slightly.

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.
