Been waiting for this for ages, just arrived 10 mins ago. Hopefully get it fitted in the next few days. Does anyone else have one fitted? If so, 2 questions:-

1. Is the roc 2.0tsi the CBFA engine or the CCTA?
2. Did you have any problems fitting it? Just so I know what to watch out for!




Pretty cool nicheconversions sticker and brochure they sent with it. Will post up more pics when fitting/fitted!! ;)

hope this helps
Breather Filter for CBFA TSIs:
If your 2.0 TSI is the CBFA, you will need to purchase this breather filter kit as well as the Carbonio intake. To determine if your engine is the CBFA, simply look at your stock intake system. If you see a small 1 inch diameter hose coming off the airbox (before the Mass Air Flow Sensor), then you need the breather filter. To purchase this in addition to the intake, please use the link below.

Just went out and checked, no small hose coming off the airbox so CCTA then, good news! Dont need any extra pieces! :D

Seems pretty straight forward.

1. unclip the lid that leads to the forward scoop of the OEM airbox.

2. using a socket set remove the 2 screws that hold the forward airbox in place. Save these screws as they are used later, then remove the inlet scoop. All straight forward so far!

3. Disconnect the leads to the MAF sensor, next using pliers, compress the spring clip that connects the Mass Airflow (MAF) sensor to the OEM inlet hose and slide it back a few inches.

4. Remove the single screw that fixes the airbox to the battery tray

5. Lift the entire airbox out of the car. (the drain hose that comes out with it is no longer required)

6. Using a Phillips screwdriver remove the MAF from the old airbox (be carful not to damage it!)

7. Slide the silicon adapter over the MAF, then reinstall the MAF to the OEM inlet tube, reposition the spring clamp and reconnect the wire. Then slide the 2 hose clamps over the silicone adapter and leave them loose.

8. Attach the air filter to the inlet trumpet and tighten the band clamp.

9. Connect the inlet trumpet to the carbon fibre airbox.

10. Connect the carbon fibre airbox to the original inlet position using the screws retained.

11. Tighten all hose clamps, then start your engine, leaving it to idle for 10 minutes to allow the ecu to re-calibrate the increased airflow (DO NOT ACCELERATE!) Finally check all connections, and then take it for a mad drive through the nearest tunnel!! :lol:

Okay, 90 minutes and its done.... ;) Pretty straight forward, only issue was step 3. depressed the spring clip with pliers no problem, but when off the MAF it expanded too much, had to get a mate to bring round a set of huuuge pliers to get it back on. Also step 2 in reverse. when finally putting the carbon fibre inlet back on we dropped one of the screws we had retained into the engine bay. Spent 10 minutes looking for it with a torch but coldnt find it :( Luckily we had a similar screw available!!

1. unclip the lid that leads to the forward scoop of the OEM airbox. easy just a few clips

2. using a socket set remove the 2 screws that hold the forward airbox in place. Save these screws as they are used later, then remove the inlet scoop. All straight forward so far! yep no problems!



3. Disconnect the leads to the MAF sensor, next using pliers, compress the spring clip that connects the Mass Airflow (MAF) sensor to the OEM inlet hose and slide it back a few inches. a few seconds does this, its getting the spring clip back on is a blooming nightmare!!



4. Remove the single screw that fixes the airbox to the battery tray

5. Lift the entire airbox out of the car. (the drain hose that comes out with it is no longer required) and out it comes!




6. Using a Phillips screwdriver remove the MAF from the old airbox (be carful not to damage it!)

7. Slide the silicon adapter over the MAF, then reinstall the MAF to the OEM inlet tube, reposition the spring clamp and reconnect the wire. Then slide the 2 hose clamps over the silicone adapter and leave them loose. Sliding the silicon adapter over the MAF is a bollocks, there is a wee lip on the MAF and it took 5-10 minutes of wrestling with it to get it on, once that was done easy peasy!



8. Attach the air filter to the inlet trumpet and tighten the band clamp. couple of minutes did this!



9. Connect the inlet trumpet to the carbon fibre airbox.

10. Connect the carbon fibre airbox to the original inlet position using the screws retained.done!!!



11. Tighten all hose clamps, then start your engine, leaving it to idle for 10 minutes to allow the ecu to re-calibrate the increased airflow (DO NOT ACCELERATE!) Finally check all connections, and then take it for a mad drive through the nearest tunnel!!



Once we had left it idling for 10 minutes we took it for a blast. Must say there is a wee bit of extra power, but not much, the biggest difference was the throttle response. The car picks up so much quicker. Great!! Not much, if any extra noise which is good. All round a simple install, looks good and works!! ;)

It was from nicheconversions.com, think it was £258 delivered. I know there are cheaper alternatives out there but at the end of the day it is carbon-fibre and after researching across VW/audi forums the Carbonio had by far the best results. Some people complained of problems with their MAF with the more traditional "oiled" filters such as K&N and pipercross.

For something that give an immediate, noticeable performance difference, it seems well worth it, roughly how much gain did you get out of it do you think?

plus is there a noticeable difference in the speedo needle speed for like... 60-80 or something?

Other guys quoted something like 10-17bhp. Not sure if it would be as much as that but it is definetely a noticeable difference in power and responsiveness. Not sure what you mean about the speedo?? Certainly is quicker mid-range. ;)

The air box is good, but its not quite the 'wonder' mod you're making it out to be. . . .

The real benefits are on cars with rempas and exhaust work. Remember the Pipework upstream of the MAF is still the same. . . . .
