Tegiwa Carbon Airbox

Hi,

I've been looking at the Tegiwa carbon airbox and have a few questions...

1. In order to clean the air filter does the airbox need to come out? It looks like a bumper off job to fit the airbox but is it a bumper off job in order to clean the filter?

2. Is it safe to run on an unmapped FN2 with no other mods (in terms of AFRs etc)?

3. It seems like it comes with some ducting/tube that gets installed down near the bumper somewhere. Does this mean the fog lights need to be removed to run the intake? Or can you run the intake with the foglights in place?

Cheers

The airbox sits where the oem one does. The bumper comes off for the tract.

1) Yes to clean the filter you have to take the box out, which can be a pain.

2) Very generally speaking yes as it will only make minute differences to the overall system with no other mods. If you are really paranoid you could get a remap but it's almost pointless with that 1 mod.

3) It comes with a hard plastic/fibre tract which takes cold air from the fog light hole, so yes you are supposed to remove the fogs and put in there a scoop to help direct the air straight into the tract. When you blip the throttle you can hear the engine take gulps of air, which is cool.

Thanks for the replies!

Can you remove the box by just removing the scuttle panel? I assume the bumper only needs to be removed to fit the tract not the airbox itself?

I have the gruppe m airbox and have to service the filter by removing the airbox. Scuttle panel 3 clips, heatshield about 6 bolts. Fairly easy to do, just have something under the bolts in case you drop them Pic with scuttle and heatshield removed..

I don't remove anything to get the box out although removing the scuttle makes things a bit easier apparently.

Intake tract can be done through the wheel arch but it may be more fiddly.

On my Mugen box, techincally the same, I don't have to remove the whole box. I just have to undo the bolts holding the lid on.

With the mugen / tegiwa are you able to mod to run with a driven crazy scoop using flexi pipe to preserve your fog lights?

You can also preserve your foglights with the Tegiwa intake tract

Thanks! I hadn't realised that. I was under the impression that in order to use the Tegiwa tract you'd have to lose the foglights (which I didn't want to, so that's good news).

100% can be used with the fogs still in place so good news indeed; best remove the bumper to fit and align it properly though.

It's set-ups like the CPL racing intake that warrant the removal of the n/s fog owing to the large cone filter that occupies the space between the bumper and front arch.

Cheers! From what I'd read/heard about the Tegiwa I got the impression you needed to use the Tegiwa foglight scoops (or similar) to feed air to the tract.

I assume with just the tract and foglights still in place, the tract can still get enough air from the mesh in the bumper?

Same with me mate, I though it was oem feed or fog light until Paul at TDi said it's one of the best intakes along with mugen when paired with a driven crazy scoop.

Was gutted as I had bought a gruppe m by then

Cheers, I hadn't realised the driven crazy scoops were compatible with the Tegiwa airbox. Does the driven crazy scoop feed into the Tegiwa tract? Or do you not use the Tegiwa tract in conjunction with the driven crazy scoops?

Just one of them, not both on the same time.
