CBFA engines??

ok, so I just picked up the carbonio intake, but theres a note at the bottom of the ebay page:

Breather Filter for CBFA TSIs:
If your 2.0 TSI is the CBFA, you will need to purchase this breather filter kit as well as the Carbonio intake. To determine if your engine is the CBFA, simply look at your stock intake system. If you see a small 1 inch diameter hose coming off the airbox (before the Mass Air Flow Sensor), then you need the breather filter. To purchase this in addition to the intake, please use the link below.

What does CBFA stand for and do I need the breather filter.

Answered this in your original topic, you don't need to make an additional topic.

Indeed. No need to make a brand new topic on this. Also, try using the search function. There's a lot out there on the CBFA engine.

8th post down, #68, gives you a picture of what to look for to determine if your CCTA or CBFA

Haha, Noob or not, it's still confusing. Did you figure out which engine you have?

If not, the engine code is on the white sticker on the passenger side of the engine. It will say CCT for CCTA and CBF for CBFA.

CCTA = Engine Mechanical Build Code for normal emissions US model
CBFA = Engine Mechanical Build Code for low emissions US model

The last digit denotes the ECU calibration for different power output models:

CCTA = Engine ECU Calibration Code for 207TQ/200HP Output
CBFA = Engine ECU Calibration Code for 207TQ/200HP Output

For example, in countries over seas they have A, B and C final letters in the engine code for high, mid and low output calibrations. The mechanical makeup of the engine is the same but the calibration is different.
