Ok so i found this k&n cold air intake. http://www.modbargains.com/_e/B5_A4_Intake/product/KN_57Series_Audi_A4_B5_DC/K_N_57_Series_for_Audi_A4_1995_2001.htm i have done the air box mod and enjoy the sound but would like to have this intake instead. Is this a good buy? Or will the intake be sucking up nothing but hot air?

Definitely a hot air intake, and will be unless you have a good heatshield which seals off the intake area.

Ya see thats what i was thinking. It doesnt come with a heatsheild and i wouldnt know what i could do to make a good one so ill leave my air box mod, it sound sgreat anyway lol

JUst Stick with the Air Box And do The Darintake mod i believe thats what it is. You'll be free from hot air.

Yah, if you read the welcome message for the B5's, the cold air intake wouldn't increase more HP... I had an opportunity but I didn't mod neither, it'll give you less HP cuz ppl put it in and Dyno'd it... it became worse.. :(

Im not wanting this for more horsepower, im in it for the sound. I know the v6 isnt fast so if speed cant be made then ill make up by some sound of the engine. Lol but then everyone will think its a race car lol
