Badger 5 / oem airbox

20 Jun 2018, 17:18

Have a badger 5 TIP but am struggling to fit the oem airbox there just doesn’t seem to be any room ... I have a cone filter on at the moment but I just don’t like the noise it makes any tips for making fitting of oem airbox easier

It will fit, but the TIP needs trimming to make it work, or make a cylinderical enclosure for the filter to sit in, non offensive to the ears but does not impdede performance imo.

you need to trim it if there is a heat shield too, otherwise the TIP compresses. dont trim the turbo end, you might want to leave the bottom loose until you rotate it into a relaxed position, when I just had a cone filter on the end of the tip it looked much more comfortable.

you could do what I did and put some foam on the bonnet above the heat shield to try and shield some of the sound.

Get a sharp knife and cut off an inch or so at the MAF end. You can cut nearly a perfect circle if you use your MAF and a jubilee clip as the 'stencil'.

im still to do this to mine after having it on the car 12 months, lol

but then i dont really feel like chopping it, makes selling it easier if i ever do, plus what performance gains are involved, if any ?

Got pics but it's so simple to put in words, have a look at the forge mk4 r32 induction kit, the cylinder part of the kit i made from a sheet of black plastic, it's a snug fit over k&n s2000 filter

for someone with a beach buggy hybrid turbo, if you really dont believe the oversized TIP adds anything put back the stock one and get it mapped to see if it reaches the 309bhp you have?

quite right too, but i was meaning the cutting of the tip, as suggested on this very topic. 8)

That'll be down to the space saving air filter that you've fitted :lol: :)

also HOGG got his TIP all the way up to the MAF Sensor - do you not have a lip? <-- that is not supposed to sound like a "and that's what she said moment"
