Default Ebay Cold air + heat shield for $18

Hey guys,

I just picked up a 1999 Audi A4 1.8T for a great price. It need's a few things such as shocks, and breaks. I also notice it felt really slow and when looking at the aftermarket cold air intake system the previous owner installed, the filter was not cleanable imo, So I was in the market and came across this:

3" COLD AIR TURBO INTAKE+WASHABLE FILTER+HEAT SHIELD C | eBay

It's free shipping and was FedEx right to my door. Took me two secs to slap on and boom; car got some pick up now. Going see if there anything else I can do because the car seems to be still lil sluggish down low, but starts pulling around 4500 and all most sounds like it has vtec about 5000 and really pulls.

that's a nice find, im guessing the plastic heat shield wont last forever but then again its only 18$ so it would be easy to replace! i might have to try one of these when i get my intake set up!

For the price man, I feel like you can't go wrong. I'm sure there some much better intakes out there for the a4, just not @ $18 bucks. I've had it on for a lil bit with no problems.

i did the good old fashioned way and just fit a regular advance auto parts K&N style filter and took the old heat sheild and zip tied it in there, not alot of power difference, but deeper sound, and a hell of alot more turbo sound. cost me about $24 all said and done.

Nice investment there for the $. I just got two front slotted rotors and ceramic brake pads for $100 shipped from ebay, I'll see how that goes.
