Golf mk7 / Re: Standard Air Box
« Last post by Tornado8 on Today at 18:28 »
Sorry I'm not making myself clear. It's a small, angled chamber(roughly 40mm X 60mm X 30mm) directly below the Turbo inlet hose, part of the lower air filter casing. I wonder if it was blocked off, would it improve air flow :nerd:

I got 38mpg this morning on a 6 mile commute with air temp at 15°c. Managed to hit green at every traffic light though  :grin:

It's officially called a snow guard and a lot of people remove it. Not sure if it has any benefits or not but mine won't come out at all  :whistle:

Are you talking about this - https://parts.vw.com/p/Volkswagen__Golf/Air-Cleaner-Baffle-Grille/54538251/5Q0129668B.html ? It's a 'baffle' or 'grille' :laugh: No idea why it's there though, I took mine out as it didn't appear conducive to air flow....

Had the golf for a couple of weeks and drove it in anger properly for the first time this week, it's my wife's daily so that's my excuse for taking so long. In short, it feels very nearly as quick as my Golf Mk7 R and looks a lot nicer so winner there. My pal following in his e46 M3 reckoned he had to drive his exceptionally hard to keep up. Really like this car but the Carbon Grey is a mare to keep clean. Need to now drive on some extended twisties to get a feel for how mobile and adjustable the rear is under turn in. North Wales befor long.

Without opening mine up, I'd guess it's either a resonator (to lower the induction noise levels) or some sort of drain to remove all the water coming through the inlet ducting.

Just a guess though!

I believe it's a snow guard, although alot of people take them out. I have also read it helps with smooth air flow? May not be true though ...

Golf mk7 / Re: MK7 Golf - XDS or XDS+

I was under the impression that all gti/gtd mk7 golfs came with XDS+, although I never knew the difference between the + and the regular XDS.
