    Polished Aluminium Intake Boot VR6

    Hey guys so still on the hunt for a intake boot for the VR as mine has tares/rips and holes all over it.

    Seeing as the engine is out and everything else in getting replaced might as well get to it.

    I did get an offer earlier in the year for a second hand good condition boot from a nice bloke on here however I never went through with it (Whoever you are "apologies")

    So looking around I discovered this:

    By HG Motor Sport - it has the ISV connection option unlike all the other after market versions for the GOLF.

    Anyone got any thoughts on this?



    Comes out a really reasonable 70 euros

    Good find. I need one without the isv connection- do they do one or does it need to be plugged?

    No, it needs to be blanked off.

    If you want one that comes without the ISV outlet then you have lots of choices. 42 Draft designs do a nice version for 0DB2 etc.

    Looks like it would have to be plugged - it's in the description. Also states that the pipe needs to be shortened for use with a standard air box. I've looked at a few of these, but most of them are made for the Mk3 2.8 VR6, where the strut tower is in a different place, meaning they won't fit a Corrado - but this one is worth a punt for the price.

    Did you go ahead with this. And if so did it work/fit ok?

    Hi Mate,

    I did indeed go ahead with this. Added the finishing touch to my rebuild.

    I just purchased the Aluminum intake on it's own and then two 76mm silicone extensions.

    Upon fitting I realised that one of the 76mm extensions was not going to give correct fitment at the throttle body end so therefore I had to buy a 45 degree elbow which I then trimmed down so that the aluminium pipe would clear the strut tower, enable correct length down towards the air feed and allow the Maf connecter plug to reach the MAF.

    Really works great though and sound the nuts with my cone filter. I bought the largest length filter I could find.

    Just to note, for the ISV connection, remove the factory plastic adapter from the hose and push straight onto the pipe.

    Perfect mate! Thanks for the speedy reply

    Will press the button on it and get one now!

    Do you have any pics or link to the 45 degree elbow you mention. As this was my only concern; clearing the strut area....

    Hi mate,

    Any will do so long as it's 76mm

    See link below: That's where I got mine from. Be aware it's a b*** to get on the trottle body, but certainly isn't coming off
