Free Breathers

Since quite a few of us have them, I'm wondering if anyone has actually noticed a performance increase with them, albeit a small one.

I know it's one thing to BS yourself into believing there is an increase just to justify the new mod, but I recently went back to the OEM parking lights (fixing the TSI's), and think the car feels like it's a little down on power.

Just soliciting some opinions. :D

Can't say that I noticed a big difference but I hadn't given it much thought. I'd like to have another set for non-autocrossing months but I can certainly do without for now. cooler is always better.

well, cold air= dense oxygen laden air.. so it would stand to reason that it would rob a lil power to have the engine huff hot air.
um... this is my quote.. like totally.
