Just seen this on the VRS Instagram.
Is the mk6 not the same kit??

I was working on retro fitting that setup to my Ed30.  I have the OEM pipework and MAF, but I never got around to moving the MAF harness over from the driver's side to test it out.

The benefits are:

The MAF is closer to the cold air source, and well away from the turbulence and oily reversion of the turbo.
The MAF scaling is correct.
There is plenty of flex for engine movement.
More choice of filters to pop onto the MAF.
No resonance noises from cheap thin walled aluminium tube as the pipe is thick plastic.
Cheaper.  A LOT cheaper.

The only snagging point for K04 owners is having to plumb in a return port for the DV into the pipe somewhere, but a fitting from Revotec can do that easily enough, which is indeed the exact same fitting Racingline use in their kit, because they can't design anything themselves can they, they are just a warehouse specialising in the repackaging of existing products.  They are merely charlatans.  Even their ECU tunes are acquired from over seas. 

I picked up the MK6 pipework, flexi and MAF for a tenner off ebay.   Stick a £20 cone on the end.  Job done.

As for this ongoing saga.  I don't care anymore, well, I do care about the people who've suffered from their shoddy product, but I don't care for Racingline anymore.   They had their chance to impress me, and they failed, miserably.  F'ck em'.
