Yeah, my thought was though that without them then the turbo would basically warm air to the same degree - turbo temp being controlled elsewhere. A debate has been had in VRS circles about whether the PD160 intake from the equivalent SEAT helps power by allowing air to be cooller when it goes in, but my thought is that it makes little / no difference.

I would be interested in your techniques though. I did a tank at 60 or less and only got an additional 5 or so MPG over my normal leaden foot.
