AEM makes one, Carbonio too I think. Just know you are paying for the sound, there's little to no performance benefit with an otherwise stock setup.

I would NOT drop money on a cai. They dont do anything on these cars. If you want more turbo noise and vnt blow off, install an open air intake and call it a day. Put the remaining $3xx into new injectors.

For his model-year (engine type) a tune would be first, then turbo/IC/exhaust, then injectors/nozzles.

Rain-Man-018,

Welcome to TDIclub!

What don't you like about the well designed ram-air CAI the car already came with from the FACTORY?

You have the stock turbo running [only] 18 PSI, you won't see any gains. LIMFAC isn't the airbox in that situation.

*Maybe* with a bigger turbo and 24 or more PSI there'd be some gains.

Stock CAI is too restrictive? OK, based on what? How do you know it's restrictive in a TDI application?

The stock airbox and OEM paper filter setup is already way over-sized by design to way outflow the engine. It is similar in size to what full size diesel pickup trucks use. It was purposely designed this way to not be restrictive while providing the necessary filtering and have a 40k mile change interval. IOW, your TDI engine is incapable of outflowing the stock airbox and filter setup, no matter how hard you try!

I agree diesels need air and the more air the better. However your TDI engine is already getting way more air than it needs.

If you believe an aftermarket CAI will add power over the stock setup, please post results from back to back dyno runs made before and after swapping the airbox setup and the swap is the only change made between dyno runs made on the same day on the same dyno.

Good luck.

You should probably listen to what everyone is telling you. The stock CAI is probably good to over 200WHP, which you aren't even close to making...
