    At the very least it probably makes the intake a little louder.

    Take one for the team? ;)

    I took the intake boxes apart the other day. No carb filter and the stock panel has a lot of surface area, no wire mesh either. The box is completely closed, The only way to get more noise is to either replace the system with a cone style such as the K&N typhoon or, Remove the intake front plate connecting the outside air ducking to the intake housing. I will have to take some pictures of this mod. I gained a little bit more turbo spool noise.

    Great!!...In my opinion it is worth it, there is no true CAI available yet for the 3.3TT, everything currently available is a WAI. These will not only improve throttle response but will also need no replacement for a while, all you need to do is clean them with the cleaner kit and you are good to go.

    I think I would get these instead of the typhoons for the reason robz32 mentioned.

    Plus it's easier and I'm lazy.

    Well there goes $110. We'll update when they arrive later this week. Will take pics and stuff when I install them.

    I have bought the K and N drop in filter for many cars. At least it saves some $ over the life of the car. It is supposed to increase air flow and give a slight increase in power. Also, if you do autocross for SCCA, after market air intake, like the Typhoon, puts you in a different bracket.

    Should be slightly increased volume of the blow-off/diverter valve, as well. Not a lot, but some.

    Still waiting to hear back from K&N. Putting the part number in a search engine, following a link to the UK website gets the generic part. Clicking on Vehicle applications it only mentions the '18 Stinger - but denotes left side airbox. Sure hope they're the same on both sides for goodness sakes.

    The factory panel is identical to the K&N version
