    An induction kit will not make any power difference to a 2.5 TDI. I've tried this and I didn't even like the noise. The standard airboxes flow really well, you'd be better off with a cotton gauze panel filter in the standard airbox.

    Your money is better spend on a remap or turbo upgrades IMHO.

    Agree with Waynne here. Diesels flow pretty well from the factory.
    A remap would reap best rewards.

    Also agree that Diesels with aftermarket induction kits sound awful.
