Re: K&N mods for Audi 90s...
As far as I know there is a new duct for the 90 that is used when you put
in a cone filter. It is more of a "high through-put" duct that breaths
much better than the OEM and is designed around the cone. As far as the
throttle controller, does anyone know what that is? They mentioned some
noticeable HP increase.
