    2012 GTI 130 custom intake

    This won't be a big, long term project like a lot of guys here, but when I start it I'll post pics for anyone interested.
    I'm going to run a 3" custom intake through the little wall that separates the engine bay area from the dry storage area. I'm also thinking of a way I can maybe cut some holes in the dry storage hood and use frogz skin for vents to get extra cool air into the dry storage area.
    Just to be clear on the frogz skin, it doesn't allow water in, does it? lol
    This is mostly a just for fun project, but if I get 1-2 extra HP and maybe 50-100 RPM's out of it, then that's even better. lol

    Let me know what you guys think of this idea. I'll probably get the stuff ordered to do it later this week and probably do it and take pics and all next week.

    I haven't gotten a chance to see if the inlet on the intake manifold is 3" or 4". Is 3" sufficient? I would assume it's more than enough for a 130HP motor.

    Edit: Crap, I'll need a catch can too, no?

    I would think 3" would work. Considering we have 4" on the big s/c skis.

    That's what I was figuring. Will I need to install a catch can? Or is that a sc/turbo thing only?

    So I just looked at it and the intake doesn't even look to be 3". More like about 2.5"

    I'm also double thinking running the intake up through the front to the dry storage area. I think I may do like a short-ram style intake. Just ditch the factory airbox and hose and come off the intake manifold with a silicone coupler with maybe a foot or so of thin walled aluminum pipe with a filter and be done.

    I ordered all the stuff for the intake. For anyone who cares all of it should be here Wednesday or Thursday.

    And for the record, the inlet on the intake manifold is only 2.5".

    Holy. Crap. I wish I had been given a heads up on how hard getting the factory air box out is!! It's too big to come through the engine area and too big to go through the front out the dry storage area. Only solution? Split the frickin box in half THEN remove through the dry storage area! Took me nearly an hour to get the box out! X.X
