      Oh and remember that the 12" tube will need to be cut a little to line everything up. I think I cut off about an inch or so from mine so that the tube can run parallel to the radiator/support.

      I ended up ordering three 6" long tubes. I don't have anything to cut up a longer tube with. This came out slightly cheaper than buying a longer tube anyway, including the extra coupler I'd need. And I ordered the 90 degree angle coupler, which is a bit shorter than the aluminum counterpart, so that might cut down the length a bit. If I still have to cut, then I'll buy or borrow something, but we'll see. Only received two parts so far, but I should have the rest by the end of the week.

      Ok so I got all my parts ready to go. Just have to figure out how to take out the OEM air box and stuff. I have a general idea of what to do but this is still my first time. Not sure which hoses should go where or can just be left alone. Any guidance will be appreciated.

      I tried to give it a go earlier and I cant seem to get the air box out. Doesn't seem to budge even after undoing the plastic clamps.

      Nevermind. I decided to search for MK7 Golfs How-To's since I knew they'd be more common by now than the Jettas with the 1.4T. I'll try again later.

      Now the next hurdle...How do you take of the little hose from where the little breather filter will end up? Is there no way to remove it without cutting it?

      No problem. I figured it out in the end. Ended up cutting my finger in the process. I might swap the 45degree pipe with a 65degree one because mine just out more than the one you have. I was barely able to close the hood. And getting the coupler onto the turbo inlet was a pain in the butt. I noticed my car doesn't seem to be sucking in air as loudly as in your video after starting it and revving the engine. Could that be because of how cold it is outside? It gets louder after driving a bit.

      i made my own intake with the flexible pipe crap they sell at the auto parts store and I'm not really happy with the look of it...what did you use to connect the pipe to the turbo itself? i currently have the stock section off the turbo with that stupid little organ pipe looking thing

      I used a 3" diameter silicone coupler that comes with a 2.5" adapter insert to connect to the turbo. That was attached to a 45 degree aluminum elbow on the 3" side.

      That may be due to the type of filter used. Also the intake sounds a bit louder on a cold start (like in the video)

      This is exactly what I used as well.

      Looks good, I will be doing the same soon too.... I found a 20" polished aluminum 3" pipe so I will cut it down to fit properly. Any codes or issues thus far?

      I love that sound, heard that our cars don't have one or something like that. Have been trying to find out if it was possible to get that sound, guess it is!

      Yeah we do not have one. The only way (currently) to achieve this is to buy this or something similar:


      The only issue is that there is no hole (at the bend) to accommodate the sensor. So you would have to figure out a way to attach it without causing any air leaks

      Meh, doesnt seem too complicated. If you buy the pipe, you will need to make one hole and just figure out a way to keep the sensor in place. The only reason why I have not done it yet is because the pipe they are offering is too expensive. Wish I knew how to weld.

      soooooo just ordered filters, 45 degree coupler and 90 degree coupler and im gonna attempt to fill in the rest with pvc. keep it on the cheap side with some paint or hopefully get some black pvc 3" its cheap at lowes for like 6 bucks for 10 ft. i paid 37 bucks for both couplers (2.5" to 3" 45 degree and a 3" 90 degree) as well as the 3" inlet air filter and a little breather filter. ill keep you guys updated with some pics when they arrive and how i route and mount everything. hoping to build an air box as well we will see what wonders i can find at lowes or home depot on the cheap
