Yeah, you'll have much more to worry about than water entering the intake if you're in water that deep!

Covering the hole should make it sound very quiet--basically the same as stock. That is how the K&N is with the plug installed, anyway.

The K&N open end filter is nowhere near as loud as an open element (short ram) intake. I would think that your green filter is similar, though I believe it is more open than the K&N is.

GreyBullit I have the green filter, I have about 2000 miles on it.. I have gotten use to the sound... It really isn't that annoying unless your getting on it.. I have the green filter with the open end, I have also done the snorkel delete.

I just did a 1200 mile trip one way, about to head back on monday, I got 40 mpg. So im pretty happy with it.

TboneZX3 For those of you who want to try an open-ended filter like the Buscher Green but are worried that you might not like the sound, K&N has another option with a bit more versatility:

http://www.knfilters.com/search/prod...px?prod=e-9289

If you want more flow, take the cap off. If you want quieter sound or cooler intake air, install the cap. This is the filter that is included in the 57S-4000 kit available for the MK3 but, like the Green, it is a direct drop-in replacement for the stock filter.

I've installed an Outerwears prefilter on mine, and if I get into dusty situations I can just pop the cap back in for a bit more protection.

There is a sticky thread on it..check it out. Basically you remove a piece of the intake system and get better flow when combined with a drop-in aftermarket high-flow filter i.e. K&N.

Not really. I deleted my snorkel, now I am trying to decide which drop in filter to go with. Green Filter or K&N. Both are direct OEM replacements.
