RE: [T3] empi air cleaners


Warm air is good for the first few minutes or so. Your rabbit should have a
thermostatic valve in it that allows intake vacuum to pull a flap that
diverts cold air into the inlet once the temperature gets above a certain
level. Cold air is much better as it contains more lumps of oxygen per
cylinder full. 

Them short aftermarket filters have a very small filter area. They clog
quicker and restrict flow.

I have a 2007cc motor in my Notch. I'm considering adapting the stock filter
to fit. I did start to make my own filter. It's then that I realised what a
fine piece of kit the stock item is.

I may be wrong, but isn't heated intake air a good thing?  That's why my
'87 rabbit sucks air over the exhaust manifold. Not that I'm advocating
the empi's over the stock oilbath ...
