Best sounding intake
« on: May 15, 2018, 10:20:57 PM »
I know this same question has been asked hundreds of times (as I’ve read the majority of the threads around this topic) but what do people think is the best intake to buy for flutter and intake noise? I’ve seen a lot of people mentioning the ITG, and having watched a few YouTube videos it seems like a good choice in my opinion. But as I am a noob, I’d like to hear the responses from the wider community. So please discuss :fighting2:

Hi mate,

I would highly recommend the Ramair Induction kit!

I've just fitted one to my car and I have to admit, it's one of the best sounding induction kits ive ever used!

if all you want it noise and are not bothered about power and quality just get a cheap open filter you an get ones that attach onto your engine cover where the air filter comes out pipercross do one cheap.

The ram air ones are very good make a lot of noise, you would be looking at £150 or for the oversized £190.

Or you could just go for a stage 1 remap where you will get more power more torque and more noise without having to do anything else to your car.

Thanks for the replies guys! I will be going Stage 1 soon anyway, so that’s a bonus I guess. I was just wondering if it’s worth getting an intake too as I’m thinking of going to 2/2+ in the future so would need it for that. And like I said, I want to hear more flutter and induction noise, so was hoping that this would help.

Best sounding is very subjective. There are certainly some that are louder than others if thats what you want. ITG/Revo/Evoms all quite loud

Drop in panel or full intake?

They are all pretty much the same.  Expect around 20hp peak gains at 2+ levels of tune, and lots of noise.
Black Edition 30 with manually selected cogs, a beefier clutch, some extra boost and them Whiteline thingies, otherwise standard.

If you can live with the weird 'out of tune flute' resonance noises that come with a k03 car running a bit of boost and an intake, the Ramair kit is ok. Lots of spooly dumpy noises.

Problem is - harmless harmonics aside - for the slight power gain in shifting the peak torque up the revs you also get questionable fitment against coolant hoses etc. And that's not just Ramair. No aftermarket intake is perfect in that respect.

If you're intent on fitting one, spend some time adjusting things, and keep an eye on where things are shifting about (and potentially fouling).

I will just add though, the Ramair sounds glorious with enough boost!

Ram-air hands down. There was one already fitted to mine and was worried my other half wouldn't be keen on the whooshes and hisses as its her everyday car but she loves it.

My other car is an E46 M3 with CSL airbox and supersprint exhaust so get the best of both worlds between not many other NA cars sounding better than the M3 and then all the hisses and pops form the GTI for the boost side of things :)

I’ve got a Revo intake on my edition 30 and with it running APR stage 2+ it sounds amazing. Even the guy at APR thought the revo intakes are the best

I have a standard airbox on mine, and I have been tempted to upgrade.

Having the MK7 calipers on the front fitted soon, I was hoping for Stage 2.

Do I need an Air filter for Stage2?

Different tuners have different definitions of hardware requirements. Check with your tuner.

Generally not having an intake will hurt top end figures, but it is unlikely to be a necessity - much like many other modifications such as intercoolers etc.

Generally on the TFSI platform, most tuners refer to Stage 2 as being a de-cat or sports cat as the minimum hardware wise
