yep, those were excellent results, that particular platform must have a heavily silenced intake tract.

But it just proves my point that some cars benefit and some don't at all...

I must have misread the marketing material on several of these types of filters. They claimed a performance increase. It appears that these filters setups are for looks and noise. They also have an application where one puts say a turbo on an engine ans is running out of room. For a daily driver I don't get it.

Agreed; I paid $315 for my Mazdaspeed cold air intake and I only picked up 24 bhp and shaved just 0.61 seconds of my 3rd gear 30mph-70mph acceleration time.

What a rip-off... shrug

Again, minus the filter, which is a seperate issue. Every car responds differently to a CAI or removal or the stock air box. The only way to prove it is put the car on the Dyno.

Agreed; I was responding to those who simply parrot second-hand opinions- i.e., "CAIs never increase horsepower." or "Install a CAI and you'll always pick up 40-50 bhp."

Heck, I'd spend a couple hundred just for the noise. Intake noise from a nice inline engine is a wonderful thing.

I'd change out the intake on the GTI, but as it turns out they generally don't make a huge difference. I'm guessing the turbo muffles things a bit.
