Im getting my 05 JCW intake this friday, do I need factory to reflash the ECU to activate the vent in the intake or I can go with aftermarket and they can do the same? I heard if the vent is not activate and the intake will be useless? Is that true?

Are you buying just the intake or the upgrade kit?

AFAIK, the ECU remap is for the fuel injectors included in the upgrade kit and is not required for the intake flap to open at 4500 rpm.

Im just getting the intake without the injectors. Does it mean the intake flap will activate itself once I put them on?

I do NOT believe they will supply the larger injectors and ECU flash for a STOCK MCS

The wiring attached to the new intake will activate the flap, so no ECU flash necessary.
