Turbo vam filter in fender

I was asked in another topic for more info on vam mount. So instead of stealing someone else's. I started this. The mount is a stock mount cutdown to the looks of this video. Then a 1/4 moon piece and then flat piece to mount with 2 bolts. The bolts go into nutsetters. K&N is serviceable by looseing the 90Degree rubber and removing the 90 and filter. The 3" elbow part # is from here.
Part Numbers
Install video is herel. Was taken when I did the intercooler install.

Cool

Nice job Maurice! I'll throw mine in too. Instead of a 90* elbow I angled the VAM mount and used a second VAM hose.

Thanks Mo. I guess I have been doing a fair share of thread stealing lately. I am wondering if maybe you can take a few more direct pictures of the Vam. That would be greatly helpful in conjuring up great ideas for the people here with 2.3T's.

Welder dude with your tallent for mods why didn't you spin the UPPER. Still looks great either way dude. If you get some of those bends out with a spun upper you will relieve some bend loss. I cant spell the other word so i substituted BEND LOSS. D'OE

I assume mean turn the upper. Have thought of it. No room to get past battery. I know move to rear. Other problem around this area is getting someone to weld alumium. I finally last week found a "machine" shop guy that is actually one. Has water table etc. So in the future we shall see. If I could find a another idea of mounting the alternator this is intake I would use. And yes I have it in my garage.
