I am trying to install my CAI into my 1999 VW Passat 1.8T car. The only problem is that everything seems to be out of order on a 1.8T. Is there anyone who has directions on how 2 install the CAI into a 1.8T? Also let it be known that I am aware about how the CAI does not make the engine cool. I am just looking for more sound in my engine.

You have an AEB engine, right? Does the CAI have a provision to keep the ignition controller cool? If it doesn't, either bust out the Dremel and cut a hole in the CAI to mount the ICM into, or send the CAI back. You WILL kill your ICM in short order if you let it overheat.
