    Twintake on anything above stage 1 software on K04 cars is restrictive and forge know it that's why they supply pipercross filters on the golf R kit.
    Fuel trims are 10-15 which is crap and they always rub on something.
    Too much pipework for the engine bay.
    I ran one on my stage 2 ko3 FR with a pipe fat taught to the second filter and I loved it.
    When I bought another for my k04 I couldn't believe how much low down torque I lost and I only put up with it for about 2000 miles.
    Everyone has their own opinion of what makes a good intake.
    Mine are
    1- sound and how easy to live with.
    2-performance and drive ability (fuel trims)
    3-looks

    Twintake does 1 and 3 but fails on 2.

    I had an idea to transform Twintake and You (Marshall, Cheungy) confirmed it.
    Step 1st - to make heat shield and 2nd to open Twintake filters and swap to bigger

    Mine came with a heat shield though? and yes you can replace the filters with piperX ones if you wanted too and take away the enclosures?

    We need some videos on youtube of the MTC kit in action. Would be good for people to see and hear it especially from the amount of questions raised about the MTC intake.

    My idea is to make custom heat shield to isolate both cone filters

    Cant believe some mongo said the Forge Twintake isnt good looking! Blind?

    Ive got one and I love the way it looks, it also sounds really good .....buuuuuuut as much as I hate to admit it I really wish Id bought either an itg or a revo one! The forge is definately too restrictive! Especially at 120mph plus! The external air pressure really impacts on it in a negative way. Also low down you can r3ally hear it sucking ... which sounds good ..... but you can only hear it so much because of the restriction! Think about it - if there was less restriction there would be less noise as the air would rush through without hitting anything in its path so there would be no air flow noise!

    If you want the best kit buy an mtc/revo or itg. If yiu want the best noise, look and engine bay buy the forge twintake with a BOV! SOUNDS EPIC - but definately isnt the best option for performance.

    Is it not loud because of the diameter of the intake pipe being so large? I know when I hear mine I just think it sounds like its trying to suck the air in and struggling
