    Air filter not really best early mod

    I have been away for some time, but I see the K&N oiled air filter question still popping up. My suggestion after doing this TDI thing for awhile is, to save your money and put that intake upgrade to use by putting in a decient FMIC. More air if any you may get from modifiying your air intake...

    Not quite what you think, but this has been bugging me since I have moved to "Hell" temp. wise. i.e. Las Vegas, NV. My ride seems bloated during the hi temp summer months since the ambient can be >105 F for days. Now that the cooler days are here there is a crispness in my get up and go that I...
