Me and my brother raced a Jetta a month ago, and between shifts you heard a loud air noise. I was wanting to know what this noise was, because I like it. I also want to added it to my TC when I get it.

I didn't know air made a noise. j/k but seriously, maybe if you describe this noise you heard in a little more detail... If this jetta you raced was boostin (turbo'd) then its likely that the sound ( a high pitched wooshing sound) was a blow off valve releasing built up pressure from the turbo. But without knowing exactly what ur talking about its tough to say

If you could tell me the license plate number, location, and make/model I could find out if it had any APR products on it and give you the EXACT horsepower it was making to the wheels at that point in time

Actually, a rush of noise can also be heard when driving the VR-6's. I don't know the exact reason for this, but you do hear it. It's especially noticable on the 2006 models.

Would it be the air intake?
