Our meth kits just arrived. We will be doing our testing and development with a coolingmist kit which is pretty popular. The tank is a 2.3gal tank which has a hidden compartment in the back for the pump. The cool thing is that any meth kit will work on our piggy back as long as the coolingmist fail safe board is used.

Review to follow of boost only biasing piggy backs and their shortfalls.

I decided to fit the Rothe intake kit on the GTI for preliminary testing. The unit came well packaged but was baffling was that the box said Arma Speed on it. Upon opening the box the actual intake is branded Arma and it had the sticker saying variable inlet on it that I had to peel off. Seems on or the other company makes the intake. I was a bit peed of as this was rather unexpected.
The quality of the unit is pretty good but it could do with some improvement in the design department. There is no way the grommets at the bottom that hold the box in the stock position stay in place so they actually need to be glued down. For the money spent this was rather unexpected. The top of the filter cover has some alen key screws that hold it in place. The one is position right where the ECU harness is so you got to move the harness out the way to close it. The harness goes right back to the metallic part and might wear through causing hassles in the long run.
There is also no where to put the breather pipe that goes into the manifold. This has caused no issues yet.
The tone is very nice, not too throaty typical of intake cones and you can get away with driving the car nicely with it being unnoticed. Seat of the bum also shows me there is some performance benefit at the 1.3bar boost I am currently running on the GTI.
Excuse the mess in the engine bay still busy with wiring and the meth line is just sitting to the left.

After doing some mileage with the intake I have fitted the downpipe. I was highly suprised that the car remained realtavely silent with it with no drone. The performance improved further with it and once I am done with the project I will be able to quantify power gains on the dyno of each mod as the cars will go back to stock for stage tuning and build up again. At the moment we are only focusing on getting the grasp of the fueling all other boost only piggy backs lack so the cars are going quickly to FBO to see how far the fuel system can be manipulated.

Over the weekend I will be installing Forges intercooler offerings and give you guys some updates.

saw your posts on the mk7 forum George. Very nice! I love the look of that intake. How are you handling fuelling? PnP unit?

To me the cost associated to the intake is in the aesthetics rather than the performance.
