The APR Carbon Fiber Intake System is an attractive high performance upgrade for the latest 1.8T and 2.0T engines as found in various MQB platform vehicles.
The factory intake design has the foundation for excellent performance, but much of this is sacrificed in an effort to meet other design requirements. With requirements set forth for only supporting factory power output levels, low engine sound levels and long service intervals, there is plenty of room for improvement.
The APR Carbon Fiber Intake System increases performance primarily by improving mass airflow through the system while still proving adequate filtration. Expect greater horsepower and torque through the power band with a more direct and responsive feel upon pressing the throttle. Sounds from the engine and turbocharger are enhanced and some may even experience better fuel economy depending on driving style.
Audi A3 / S3 - (MK3 / Typ 8V) - 1.8 TFSI & 2.0 TFSI
Audi TT / TTS - (MK3 / Typ 8S)* 1.8 TFSI & 2.0 TFSI
Volkswagen Golf / GTI / Clubsport / ED40 / R / Alltrak - (MK7 / A7 / Typ 5G) 1.8 TSI & 2.0 TSI
* Requires the TT/TTS Adapter
Vehicles equipped with secondary air injection (SAI) require the SAI filter below.
CAUTION: The engine moves substantially under load and as such the factory turbo inlet pipe and APR turbo inlet pipe flexes. Replacing this pipe with a non-flexible silicone hose will damage the intake. Doing so is not recommended and voids the intake’s warranty.
