In Topic: CAI?

Anyone know if this would fit a 2016 Tiguan SEL 4motion 2.0L?
aFe Power Magnum FORCE 51-11892 VW GTI Performance Intake System (Dry, 3-Layer Filter)


I went for a kit for the Mk6 Golf Gti/Scirocco Mk3..   https://www.thepiper...0_p23348537.htm


Altho i had to tweak and fabricate my own support bracket for the Tig.


This aFe one looks very similar

What does CAI mean? Can you please make your title more meaningful.



CAI = Cold Air Induction :)

I too have a 2011 4Mo Tig, and i had a 3" downpipe with 200 cell hi-flo cat, made by Pipeworx in Liverpool..  works a treat. Its connected to the stock mid section and back box, so theres zero extra noise.

Looked at loads pre-made online, but nobody would confirm fitment on 4Mo Tigs, only front wheel drive Tigs.


I think you can buy one like mine (or catless) via their ebay shop now..  but im not sure if they ship to the Lebanon?!

Update on the above:


MRC Tuning was a complete bust..  after all the phone calls and prep, i took a day off work, got there at 8am, and by 10.30 they said they can't do a thing as the ECU was locked by the people who the previous owner had the stage 1 tune done by, and they said they were too scared to do anything in case they "bricked" the ECU. Not Happy.


Got a second opinion from Jamie at JTech Automotive, who referred me to Jabba Sport in Peterborough.


Chatted with Kevin @ Jabba who assured me he could do the job.


Went to Jabba...  Kevin did a few baseline dyno pulls, and got 265bhp. He then pulled the ECU from the car, and we found it had been cracked open the old fashioned way, and had a Revo map applied, and then re-sealed.

He then applied the stock VW 2.0 tsi map and did a few more dyno pulls, and got 218bhp (18bhp over stock - most likely due to the bigger intercooler and downpipe).

He then got to work on writing his own map, and got up to a safe 280bhp, and then mapped the DSG gearbox for faster shifts and launch control :)



Cannot recommend Jabba highly enough..  they are great people and their work is outstanding (and very reasonably priced).


Prior to the stage 2 tune i pulled a 0-60 of 5.49 secs...  now with launch control @ 4k rpm i pulled a 5.1 sec 0-60. One very happy goose.


Not bad for the baby K03 turbo...   just imagine another 100bhp if i go for the Golf R K04 upgrade :mrgreen:


Anyhoo..   that'll do for now. Started my new job at Canon this week, and hope to exchange and complete on the new house late July/early Aug.




ps. for anyone interested in air-cooled veedubs..   i made some headway with my engine rebuild :)

Having not done anything on my Tig for a while (other than new tyres, a crankcase PCV, and a camshaft position sensor) whilst I sort a new job/house, and focus on my Karmann Ghia resto project...  the Tig is now booked in at MRC Tuning on Friday for a Stage 2 engine map and DSG map - cant bloomin wait!! :woot:


Dyno sheet to follow.
