I'm new at this and am noticing that no one talks about the Unitronic CAI. Of course, I didn't get through all 38 pages. How does the Unitronic intake compare to the IE or EVOMS intake? Those are the ones I'm considering right now. Some please point me in the right direction. I am also tuning Stage 1, Unitronic, if that helps.

I've got the Unitronic intake installed and gotta say I love it. I was looking for something that made a lot of intake noise and this for sure does. Fitment was great and I've had no issues with it so far. Of course I haven't done any logs or anything like that, just haven't had any basic issues.
Planning on mating it to APR software in the near future.

There are a few threads on the Unitronic CAI and I think most people that run it like it.

The search functionality is meh on this board so it is easier just to google whatever you want to find using a search term like "site:golfmk6.com unitronic CAI" or something similar.

By the way welcome to a fellow Charleston County member. Are you getting tuned at JK Automotive? Bunch of good guys and they are well respected in the VW community in Charleston.

A good majority of the forum is running the Unitronic intake. It's a quality piece of hardware.

And it is a nice piece, but most admit the real world gains from pretty much any intake are minimal

When I first put it on it seemed to rub some of the tubing. Not badly, I'm sure if I played with it a little I could get it to fit perfectly. That was just taken as soon as I put it on. I took it off for now rather than risk wearing holes.

Not everything is about gains. Some people just like the noise. It doesnt always have to be about this intake give 5 extra hp than this one so this intake is better etc.
