Sorry for bringing this up again, but the search engine on this forum is lacking at best -I keep getting ODBC timeouts when searching message body for V6 mod, so i guess ill just have to ask:

what exactly is V6 mod for TS? I seem to remember it is a specific intake?

im getting my ECU remapped soon with new muffler and a ram intake from Simota, should i consider this V6 mod before remapping?

thanx
Anders

If you have a Simota ram air, then you cant do the V6 mod.

The V6 mod is used with the stock-airfilter box, often with a sport-airfilter inside. You simply replace the stock airfilter in the airbox, remove the resonator box, and replace it with the V6 intake pipe.

ah thanx for clearing this up

i still have the stock airfilter box so maybe i should consider this mod?!

im not entirely satisfied with the Simota -the sound is excellent but i have noticed dried up water on the crome of the intake. Now thats a bit alarming for me since that would indicate that water could get into the engine when driving wet...

anyone got pics of this mod?

how much would the V6 intake pipe set me back?

Take a look at this: Intake mod V6

The only think you are doing with this mod is:

Replacing stock airfilter with a replacement sportfilter
Removing resonator box
Fitting a V6 intake pipe

No more open airfilters and crap. It gives you a bit deeper intake sound, and not that wroar-noice from an open filter. You can also expect a bit better throttle response.

Here is what it gave me: before and after

The V6 intake pipe will max set you back 200 dkr.

Check out my website ... http://members.lycos.co.uk/gazza82/

Under "Hints&Tips", open or download the V6 Intake Mod PDF ... you will find some pictures there.

Not sure what you would pay, but mine cost around £14 from my UK dealer. They had to order it in as it wasn't a stock part. He'd never sold one before.

It's not worth the cash...you're better off gasflowing the heads...then chipping the car...end of story.

Beg to differ ... since fitting mine the car is much more responsive and seems to be a lot smoother. Plus you lose several kilos of plastic ...

And of course gasflowing, chipping and other engine mods will be better, but they cost more!!

I did it more for interest as I'd read so many others had done the same and haven't been disappointed.

Thanks Spennie ... still early days, but hopefully it will grow with age ... and as more bits break or drop off ... the car that is!

When you mention the sound" in your next post, did you mean from the intake? Because mine doesn't sounds that much louder I left the trumpet in the air-box btw.
