    Sorry for the bump, but are there any conclusive tests with and without these? I'm very tempted, but still looking into these.

    Thanks!

    there were, some 10 years ago now when I first ued them

    No power gains to get that straight. Some other similae products claim power gains... impossible
    Keeps what you have from cooler ait's, and faster recovery once it has got warm as it does'nt have to overcome the conducted heat from the cyl head.. (Inlet mani I refer to here)

    Hi

    Can you safely unplug the throttle body plug when fitting this? I've read it needs setting up via vagcom if unplugged, which i aint got.
