Can you see it, or does it just smell rich? And when was the last time the oil was changed?

If the coolant temp sensor were bad, it would be running rich. Same could be happening if the front O2 is faulty.

For sure put the stock air box back on. It's designed for max flow and will pull cool air instead of hot air. Just drop in a K&N.

No codes at all? I haven't yet had a VW OB2 that didn't have some kind of code (except for Roadhog's TDI, but he's crafty hehe).

Also, K&N Filters suck.

k&Ns work well when they are dirty. lol AEM dry filters are nice if ya need an option.
