    Default Noob question time! Re: 306

    I'll keep this short & sweet. When I give my a GTi6 a bootful I occasionally catch a sort of brief hissing sound coming from the engine, particularly right after upshifting. Not a blow-off valve hissing sound, more like rushing air. Would I be correct in thinking that this is the engine sucking in the air required to satisfy my right foot?

    They do make an induction noise when giving it some, even more noticeable if it's got an aftermarket air filter.

    Cheers! I certainly wouldn't object to a bit more induction noise, but I've read that you end up losing grunt at the bottom or top end if you fiddle with the stock setup.
