Yup, fit a Forge induction hose and you are good to go.

Evoms don't make an intake for the 7. The guys from stealth can comment about the atom intake.

We have sold plenty VWR R600 intakes and everyone that has purchased one love the look and performance it offers.

Does not fit 35 but we have VWR intakes for the 35. Gains are around 10whp from what we have seen.

Sooo, yesterday I decided to have One thing done on my MK7 (DP) so went ahead and :like: Done!! :troll:
2 minutes later, a certain birdie driving a 7R whispered "Intake" in my ear and I was like "hmmm... OK" :facepalm: I ended up purchasing a VWR as well! :dance:

Here's the thing....

My car is stock other than the new DP and VWR intake. The car performs Much better... No issue there! BUT, Is it normal for the VWR intakes to be so Quiet?? From inside the cabin the spooling is pretty much Non-existent... even with the bonnet open and revving it, theres very little to hear, which I find strange. I've read somewhere in another thread where someone else had the same issue but can't seem to find the topic anywhere.

Its a closed intake so it is very quite.

I had the same problem, after owning 3 x K04 TSI's with Evoms you get withdrawal symptoms after fitting the R600.

I sold the R600 and fitted a CTS which is open and louder. After some shuffling and even having an APR intake I now have an R600 again. It is by far a better quality item.

If its the noise you are after then fit a DV+ and a turbo muffler delete.

Finally some feedback!! Thanks JaredM :like:

Yeah I kinda figured that'd be the case. Even went as far removing the top cover of the intake to see if everything was fitted 100's... which it Was! Don't think I'll change to anything else btw... I'm happy with the peformance :like:
I Was actually thinking about doing the muffler delete along with VWR 90 degree bend and intake hoze Hoping it'll aid a bit

I have the same intake and I installed the vwr muffler delete this weekend and it made no difference in sound, however I can confirm the vwr 90deg and the vwr high flow turbo inlet pipe did make it slightly louder.
Just a tip if you fitting it yourself, something I experienced when changing the muffler delete, have some gasket sealant ready as there is a thin o-ring inside the housing that is a b!tch to put on as it keeps falling off due to the turbo being at an angle, at least with a bit of gasket sealant it holds the o-ring to the turbo housing. :salut:
