Interesting. I wonder why my batt box interfered...... Well, my car has been tapped on the front end twice.... maybe its shifted a bit, but everything else seems to be in the right spot. Delvi, can you snap a photo?

I would think that Vortexers would give some of these parts away as they install aftermarket intakes...anyone looked around or posted a WTB over there?

I don't think they have that those parts where only installed on the european R32 with DSG transmission. thats why they have to be ordered from europ.

while the bumper was off I also installed the upgraded side mount intercooler
Why did the R32 airbox need to be modified? What did you modify?

Thanks.
OK, it does NOT as my snorkel is much different than the older cars.

It's a great mod, but can someone answer this question?
Thanks

The front grill intake doesn't change. But the shroud around the headlight has a larger hole/interface that matches the larger snorkle diameter.



If you look at this pic, it does look like the R32 shroud is larger.

The rear shroud isnt really larger, but rather it fits the the larger snorkle reciever that goes under the headlight.

Sorry to do this but bump:
So if I was using the R32 Euro DSG box (top and bottom) and snorkle, what would the MAF and accordion tube situation be? The stock is smaller than the air box outlet right?

Should/could one get an R32 MAF holder ect.? (Yes I know a mini remap would be needed)

I got a US spec R32 box for a manual transmission, and the hole was not the right size(the us r32 box has a smaller hole for the snorkel)

so I trimmed the opening and I had some gasket material and now is nice and tight

So, the piece pictured at the top in this photo is the piece that goes behind/below the headlight, and the piece on the lower left is the intake snorkle. But what is that piece on the lower right??
