Air filter, dtuk
« on: 27 May 2017, 10:17 »
Hi
I have fitted a dtukbox and was wondering if there is any benefit to fitting a different filter from stock on my GTD?
Cheers

I can't see there being much of a gain from an induction kit aside from it being noisy, and again there won't be a huge gain (if any) with a fancy filter; but the one thing I would recommend is making sure the filter is changed a lot more frequently than the manufacturers service schedule so that it's free of dust and debris which is the one thing that will affect airflow. I doubt they even open up the airbox until the 40k service and Diesels suck a lot of air which in turn means potentially a lot of dust!

I put a Pipercross panel filter in my gtd and also in the Tiguan 184 and now have one in my gti. Much better filter than standard one.
