I also listed the golf R one above. Did you compare your part number to it? I was always under the assumption that it was open on the R. Thought I saw it on a post way back somewhere. It only takes like 5 minutes to open it up though. I just drilled it with a spade bit and then used a dremel with a sanding drum to smooth it out.

Just remove that if you want dual openings. Done and done

Unfortunately I don't.

I have to agree with Jake. Just cut it to your liking.

I sent the email to confirm if the part # linked above for R has dual openings. They responded they don't keep them in stock so can't confirm.

The golf GTE has an intake inlet that isn't open on the engine side, which makes is essentially a sealed intake, which might be even better. Here is mine with the lid removed, so you can see the inside. In the rear, there's a single tube leading to the filter.

that link to that part looks like the identical part we already have. i do not see any opening on the front-right side of that duct :shrug:

The inlet on the gti isn't sealed off completely at the engine bay side. The gte part is. So they are not identical. The right side is closed but there's a Dremel for that.

Are you referring to $22 or $27 part? As I said earlier, I bought a part for Golf R from that place last month and it was exactly the same with only one opening. That's why I'm hesitant to buy another one until someone confirms the part number with dual openings.

Is opening up a second opening going to help anything?
The intake pipe controls how much air flows.
I think the second more direct opening will mainly let more trash in and clog filter faster.
The OE opening pulls air from above the opening letting most solid trash flow by.

And hot air that's blended with engine air, then it gets heated across the top of the radiator. Yes it helps give you nice cold air. I have had it open for a year and drove through snow and rain. No issues at all

I think only blended air would come in at very low speeds.
The intake flow is enough I am sure to keep intake air fresh.
A lot of air flow through engine and under car when driving.
But as you stated not likely a big issue we could determine a reason to not open.

There is no direct path of cold air into the intake at all. It goes directly to the engine bay. The top section above that vent then pulls are from the engine side. It's definitely mixed air at best. That air then has to travel across the top of the hot radiator where it makes a 90 degree bend into the intake. It doesn't take rocket appliances to figure out that cutting out the vent definitely helps. I'm not sure what member in here who did it, but it's been tested on how it affects IAT and the actual compressor cycle. It works. The specific reason why VW does not do it from the factory is for emissions and noise regulations. The same reason no other manufacturer is putting any type of short ram, cold air intake on their cars unless it is a specific high performance model

I just opened up mine. I'm thinking about blocking the airflow from the passenger side. It'd be easy enough to stick something in the box. Air could still flow into the engine compartment, but none of that air would get into the intake.

I just took some old abs plastic and plastic weld mine. I don't know how much of a difference it made.
