EvoMS makes an intake for the V6 (look under A4 2.8 V6).
It is technically a short air ram v. cai.
Had one - liked it, but it is 270.00+
For the money, buy a chip - GIAC or Neuspeed
Then the intake...

It did make the engine compartment dirtier, but I never had it dyno'ed.
It sounded faster - but 3 months later I did the GIAC chip and UR UDP set, and 5 months after that Remus rear mufflers.
It all worked to make the V6 4Motion move better (especially in 3,000 to 4,500 rpm range).
Probably not a cost effective modification.

I wondered if a cheaper alternative would have been removing the cross bar in the lower box, getting a K&N cone filter (or ITG) and a PVC elbow from Lowes or Home Depot and a small filter for the SAIP.
All enclosed in factory airbox of course.
Still thinking about doing that to my W8, but the box is oddly shaped and I don't know if it all would fit in there.

Look at AWE-Tunings website. They have an S-Flow for the 2.7T that works in the stock airbox like I was thinking, but it too costs 270.00.
