snow box removal/air box mod

Recommended Posts

So has anyone done this yet?

 

I plan on doing it this weekend.

There is a very restrictive area in the plastic piping from the snow box to the air filter housing.

a lot of the guys on newbeetle.org and tdi are removing them and installing a 3" duct from the air box down towards the front bumper area where the snow box was located.

My foam in the inner fender was solid against the intake. Took it out and was much better.

Just take the screen out was all that was done to my TDI many years ago..

I have also driven it in many blizzards up the Coquillhalla Hwy over the years, not any hint of trouble.

The screen does tend to get more of a problem than a help...

all done, now the air pickup is up in the inner fender. Should be better now. If the weather is really bad, I will just drive my Denali.
