Your fake vents look like golf balls.
I was actually thinking of doing three turn signals and trying to make them flashLooks like a bunch of turn signals. :lol:
Might have to go get some bondoglass from work. :ninja2:
^ They don't make them that way. My boyfriends made a extra pass side headlight with that ram air tube. So I kinda know a little bit about it. They dont sell and make them but you can make your own for a MKIV TT.don't they even make supra headlights that have just a hole where the high beam is supposed to be so people can just set their filter right behind there?
THAT is a good idea... i may have to use that.I have mine cut on the drivers side, but in reality what that should be for is a power steering or oil cooler behind those openings, not to supply air to your intake. It won't necessarily hurt (See below), but don't expect some magical hp gain from doing that or fabricated a "ram air" scoop.
I also had more issues with my cut vents and CAI while driving through rain where a bypass valve will have zero effect on what issues I had.

^ wow thanks for that info...I meant to reply to this when it first was posted. Back in 2000 Tony and Sam did rather extensive testing with WAI/CAI and air quantities/temperatures using a data logger.
They found that there were no benefits to cutting out the vents for either. The intake temperature was slightly lower for a CAI when not moving, once you started any forward motion the intake temperatures were the same for WAI/CAI with/without the vents cut.
^ yea it does for me.^^^^ That settles it I suppose
^ Hmm good idea. I might look into that after I do the brembo swap and if I do it I will make a thread with pix and post it.you might be further ahead to try to duct that air to the brakes.
You'll be tossing the CAI when you go turbo, if you even bother at all.I know this thread is old as hell but maybe I can revive it a little.
I've been thinking of doing something similar in my car because I have a CAI for when I eventually turbo, but the CAI is just a paperweight right now because there's no heat shielding for the air filter. So I've been thinking of doing this, not for hp gains but for the purpose of supplying my engine with nice, fresh, cold air.
So to the point, I wanted to hopefully get some insight into how difficult this is and maybe get some ideas from people who've done it on how I can ensure the air is filtered and I'm not flinging road debris into my engine, while also keeping the profile of the tubing very small. Thanks for any help! :ndance:
