Honestly, I think you would be better off going with a CAI then the P-Flow. With the CAI you are getting more of what you need and that is cold air. Plus, I don't know if the 1.8T had the same problems as the VR6 but with the short, in engine compartment intakes people where destroying there MAF's (including myself). I know with the VR6 MKIV the distance between the MAF and the air tract to the intake is to short. So what you have is turbulent air destroying the wire MAF. Once again, I do not know if this holds true for the 1.8T but when I installed my roomates CAI I was checking out the stock setup and where you would tighten down the P-Flow would be the top tranny bolt so I am guessing that the setup would be the same as the VR6 and you would incounter similar problems. Hope this helps

I was just told about the Neuspeed P-flow ruining the MAF sensor ($400+). The guy who told me about it works at VW, and runs a performance shop in York, PA. He said that VW sent out a memo warning about the p-flow system (that it ruins maf sensor) & that it is bad news. So I'm going to look into another CAI. Anyone have any suggestions? For around $100-150? Thanks. BTW, 100 post for me! yeah.

EvilGti2000, regarding that MAF sensor, most people who ruin it are setting it up for it to be ruined by tightening the bolts around the MAF sensor too tight.

Big Dub you can use this as a reference, they show an installation of an Autobahn Design Cold air filter.

I have the Eurosport Cold Flo in mine. Personally I love it, got it at a real great price too (free). It gives 7 HP gain & best of all a mean deep growl. At 5K RPM's is whistle's or should a say scream's like a jet engine. If I had to get another one it would be the CAI.

hey DB,

did you have any maf problems or heard of any with your intake. after doing mods to my last car and then having problems with warranty and what not i'm a bit concerned.

is the cai intake similar to the euro or does it get piped down to the outside?

can you recommend where i can purchase the euro one.

thanks alot

Crap, I'm using a P-flow right now on my VR6-should I ditch it? The sucker sets of my check engine light if I run the engine hard for a while and then come to a stop without a gradual cool-down. To add to the brand frenzy, how about Injen? I see those intakes on a lot of rice at shows--are they good on VWs?
