If you bypass the pipe takes out some restriction by replacing this pipe and bypassing it. The factory pipe is just there to enhance the engine sound into the interior of the car. It only adds more volume in the system, something you want the least bit as possible. If you replace it with the EA pipe you just have a more expensive sound maker... The Euro Jet EA pipe is a waste of money. Bypassing it is the way to go.

So the pipe is basically a megaphone for my engine? And in doing so it restricts airflow to my turbo? So if I were to take the pipe off would I just need to plug the holes? I haven't really taken a close look at it yet under my hood so I'm not really sure where it goes. I'm pretty much opposed to "noise makers" and the like. My fast is all go, no show. >:D

Yes it is like a megaphone for your engine. Volkswagon calls it the ESS pipe, Engine Sound System. ABD makes a bypass for it, or you can buy the stock throttle pipe for the Audi A3. It has the same 2.0T FSi, but with out the sound maker in it. If you bypass or replace the part all the extra air going to the sound maker will then go to your turbo. I think I would like more air in my turbo befor I dress up my engine compartment... I guess it is personnel preference.

Its not a huge sound difference. You will need someone who just has this mod and no other. I think of vwvortex a while ago someone posted up a sound clip of it. I'll see if i can get it for you.

Hey dudes i was checking thi site earlier do you think this is a good buy. Its called the y-delete pipe, i think it takes out the ESS on our fasts, im thinking of getting it, i want to hear my fast and not muffle it, and as said by kondziela id rather have the extra air go to my turbo, then to a sound can,lol. tell me what you think.http://www.fixxtuning.com/mk5_gti.html, check it out, you'll find it in the engine section.Give me some feedback, i wish to know if there is anything to plug after the installation, thanx guys, laterz.

I have Neuspeed's HighFlow Intercooler pipe which does basically the same thing as the Y-Delete. I don't think it affects the power numbers at all, but what it does do is reduces turbo lag. I put this and the Turbo Discharge pipe both on my car the same day, and before I installed the P-Flow, and I could definitely feel the difference on shifts. It took some getting used to but improved reaction and shift times, not to mention the cool little kick in the ass I get when I complete a shift.
