N/a Induction Kit Advise

Recommended Posts

just fitted my TDi carbon fibre induction kit to my car today. got it from Fever so i had no instructions. got it to fit on but here are a few little questions:-

The induction kit is resting on the power steering fluid pipe, and needs the bonnet pushing to be shut, not to bad tho.

the air flow sensor! where does it go, my revs are sitting at idle at about 600 or so, dont want the mix to run too lean.

cheers guys.

but it does sound great! cant wait to have it together with the HKS hiper that will soon be on its way!

Do you mean the air temp sensor rather than air flow sensor?

yes, the one i pulled out from the front of the box. looks like a large plastic spike. should i just lengthen the wires and drill a hole in the induction pipe? as the idle sites a lot lower than it used to and i dont want it to affect the fuel mix by lowering the fuel output

Yes that what you need to do. Otherwise it will think it's much warmer than it actually is.

You may find the rpm will sort itself out anyway. The ECU does tend to take a long time to adjust idle speed.

There should be a hole in the induction pipe (at the top near the back) to put your sensor...

And it is a tight fit with the bonnet closed....

well i have fitted the kit now fully, have made space for the oil breather pipe that was connected to the origional airbox as the carbon kit i bought from fever was broken off. a few pieces later and it was all connected in.

Then i removed the origional grommet from the airbox for the air temp sensor and drilled a hole in the elbow bend and fitted it in there.

Pulled a little more cable from the loom and it slipped in.

no more worries about getting a bad fuel mix now.

here are a few pics, will get more in the daylight

The wires look at little tight, could fail after a while with engine vibration.

yeah, those photos were before i freed a little more wire from the loom, plus when the hood shuts it give it a bit more slack. there is a good 20mm of too and frow in the cable. but i am considering making longer cables. but at least its all neat and tidy.
