Yeah it was the hole under the air box, and I disconnected the batteries negative post from the car to clean the MAF.

Only dropped one insert into infinity below and found out the negative cable post is PITA to reinstall so I basically had to re-tap it with the original bolt. Other than that....two thumbs up for sure!

Yes, you're sucking in too much hot engine air with the lid off... you need one of those open intakes with the surround that seals against the hood to keep only cool from the front coming in... When I had my DCT repaired they didn't seat the airbox against the lower resonator tube right... It sounded good but I knew it was sucking in hot air that way too so I had to reseat it.

I thought my 2014 ST did not have any such vanes either???
I would have to recheck it though, as I really did not inspect it as well as the 2012 SE I had.
I don't ever recall looking into mine, and I don't have any pics left over that haven't been posted. I don't think the support is different, but I could be wrong. Even the piece that attaches the support to the tracts is angled.

Someone with a Mk3 should pull out their airbox and get some pics facing forward...or take their bumper off and get some pics facing aft.

Mr Rutherford I knew there was a reason I spent $5 on that thing.

Behind that is actually a dead-space that doesn't flow into the intake tract-



So as you can see, the area that is open is literally all the area available for air to flow through. Not trying to incite a riot or anything, I just thought I would post some semi-clear photos to help clarify the use of the ST snorkel on the Mk3.

Another shot with the snorkel installed-
Thanks!
