You could always do the airbox mod or make your own intake. There are plenty of companies that make intakes if you are looking to buy one.

Check the noob guide for more info, but an intake will not give you any power gains, especially on a 2.8. K&N has some as well as some other companies, so just search around and you will find some.

I just got an intake off eBay it was like 50 bucks for my 01 A4 2.8. I’ll let you know if I feel a gain. As for intakes go I know we don’t drive ricers but as far as I know most manufactures don’t make their intakes as free flowing as possible for fuel efficiency and so on. I don’t see why Audi would be any different.

The filter that came with mine is also a little small it seems. The pipe is good but i think it needs a K&N stuck on the end. Also i have seen people angle theirs down into the engine bay i have mine angled more towards the hood. Does anyone know which is better?

My comment was in reference to the OP's car specifically. The OEM stock airbox on his model of car is quite good, which in turn results in very little, if any, gain at all in power. On the newer Audi A4s and different models such as your 08 TT, intakes have been shown to have significant gains.
