Does that mean its 5X better than a Jetex? Doubt it...

Is there any performance advantage running an IK? even with a heat shield your under bonnet temps are still the same and the filter is still pulling hot air in. My Impreza RA dropped around 10/20 brake over the oe airbox even with a turbo blanket, front mount, heat wrapped manifold etc to keeps temps down. The oe airbox with a good filter was good for 400 brake, can the S3 be any different?

Enclosed cones dont seem to pull the mustard ......Bmc = ****e so i would not waste my money on the ITG...IMO

two very different products....... i would sooner pull the air from the front of the car than the engine bay, simple physics......colder air outside. like I say I've driven and tried every set-up there is and I simply wouldn't use anything else!

comparing apples to oranges and coming up with a conclusion will never get you anywhere.... this air box leaves a lot of surface area to draw airflow, and the 3" ducting pulls in a lot of air!

It's simple enought to make your own custom shield or air feed, you just need a little imagination and creative skill but both are worth doing. I noticed less lag since keeping the filter cooler.

Fair enough mate, if it works it works.... Bmc,s filter must be the bad egg then...for the price of them they should be A1..

I will soon be testing using a B5 TIP, standard smoothed airbox, but with a 4" cold air feed. I'll log the airflow and performance etc. then will fit a Jetex cone filter and run the same tests.

I'm using a jetex without a heat shield :blush:


A bit off topic but...

I cant understand how badger 3” tip works as it uses a reducer so that it fits the car, so how is it that it makes any difference (i know it does as I've seen the results of the tests. it just doesn't make sense in my head....lol) ?

i think its all to do with flow it removes the restriction of the stock pipe and as the reducer is chamfered like a traffic cone the air flows thru

the reducer smoothly but i think due to the air flowing so freely it loses torque low down but gains it higher up in the curve (or maybe he just

sprinkles them with magic badger dust lol)

Westle when are you going to be testing the tip with the standard airbox. Very interested to see the results

My car is booked in for a sevice and turbo refurbed on 27th. I'll be collecting it on Sunday 5th of June.

The plan is to get the 3" TIP fitted to the standard airbox during the first 2 weeks of June after I've fitted my FMIC to dump the passenger SMIC and get a 4" cold feed fitted. I'll do tests with VCDS on the standard box then with a Jetex then I'll head back down to Bills at the End of June/ start of July to get some power runs.

So keep an eye on this thread over the next 3 weeks or so.
