Hello everyone. This is my very first post. I am a little lost. A few weeks ago I purchased my first car, a 1998 Manual non TDI 2.0 L new beetle. It is in great shape body wise and has only 85k miles. I love it a lot and have gone through replacing a lot of things. I bought all new brakes for it, new exhaust which it needed and also replaced most sensors and just purchased a new mass airflow sensor.

I really love the way cone filters look, I love how they sound as well and with most cars they run clean and suck cold air in as intended. But with the Beetle mod. The way to do it is to remove the OEM air box and replace it with a air intake filter attatched directly to the mass airflow sensor. This looks nice and sounds nice but of course it defeats the purpose of cold air intake. It will only be sucking warm air from around the engine bay.

How can I get cold air to suck through? Is it possible? And is sucking the warm air bad for the engine at all?
