Does this result in less intake air restriction or create less turbulent intake air?

Until I see some decent numbers, I'm not convinced doing these minor things to lower IAT before the turbo warrant the effort.

Maybe both, although I think its insignificant. The air no longer has to make 2 90° bends. It's a straight shot (more or less) into the bottom of the airbox.

I blocked mine off as well. All I know is that this set up allows me to daily drive with my stock IS12 peaking at 23 psi and tapering to 17 on 3-4 gallons of e85. On 93 I peak at 19.5 and taper to 14. Car runs great and I feel it makes a difference

There's a suitable OE part to block the factory hole on rear:

5Q0 129 849













Another idea for those willing to place the battery in the trunk:



Trying the bigger Passat/Arteon 240 HP TDI airbox. Remember
Diesel engines use to have a significantly higher air requirement.

I found this piece for €14 at the oemvwshop.com but the international shipping is costing way too much almost €90 in total. Is there any website which sell in cheaper shipping cost. Here is the link
