Default Best air filter or cold air intake for Skoda RS

Guys please advise the best air filter / cold air intake kit for the Skoda RS. Also pls let me know what part no K& N advises for the RS.

I have fitted the K&N apollo cold air intake kit but i am not sure whether this is the right one.

Tips and suggestions are welcome.

Pete's Performance Products seems to be the best

The Carbonio Cold Air Intake imported by Pete's is by far the best intake system i have used on a RS. Works real good and easy installation too. I would really suggest a custom code ecu remap if youre looking to gain major performance.

Here's inspiration:

I believe a Carbonio CAI was used here.

Carbonio CAI it was, with the lead pipe going all the way down.
I suppose you felt the power of those mods on shuvd's car.

The Carbonio CAI is the best piece of kit available. But, please be careful in water logged conditions!

hmmm well oh yeah exclusiveperformance.in
i think

met them at an auto expo few months back , they know knew what they are talking about , seem dedicated and hard working and most importantly in bombay they were in the process of hooking them selves up with a spanking workshop

yes they are here man , expensive but factory made certified "bolt on" performance - RS or rider 150 hp bumped to 232 hp
Bt the way audi Alfa and BMW state that the limit of performance for a front wheel drive is 225 hp unless your going drag spec which doesnt thrill me

PEter of pete s supposedly did a 300+ hp skoda in bombay, a friend a mumabi drag champ from 4 seasons ripped it said it was mind numbing ly
fast ::: get this 30PSI boost !!!!!

i dont believe it , even 8 psi boost can be made to look like 30 psi with clever vavle placement
on further digging i found out that there is a "rumour" that petes 300 hp skoda on a dyno did some 180 ish odd hp

i truly trust in MTM
i dont know pete and i mean absolutely no offense to him , i think his chief techies work is really nice at the least -from what i have heard

but i havent heard of anyone going MTM s way
and oh yeah there is an ad for MTM in one of the latest car mags tooo
