The APR Carbon Fiber Intake System lets your engine breath! The stunning carbon fiber design rejects power-robbing heat from the engine bay and delivers an unrestrictive path for cold, dense air fed from outside of the engine bay. The system uses a high flow filter that provides excellent filtration without the restrictions, keeping the engine clean while optimizing power delivery. The system dramatically outflows the stock intake, sharpening throttle response and lessening strain on the turbocharger, all while supporting over 500 horsepower! The system installs in minutes, looks fantastic, delivers a sporty engine note, and is recommended at all stages of performance.

The APR Carbon Fiber Intake System connects to the factory turbo inlet piping, and provides substantial gains. Those looking to complete the system can opt for the optional APR Carbon Fiber Turbo Inlet pipe. The turbo inlet pipe is a continuous 80mm pipe that connects to the turbocharger via a port-matching silicon coupler. The PCV system conveniently connects to the intake via a billet aluminum adapter. Lastly, the system uses a flex coupler that allows adequate engine movement and flex.

The APR Intake system dramatically out performs the factory intake system. As performance increases, so does the importance of a high-flow high-quality intake system as a large pressure drop forms between the factory intake’s inlet and outlet.

As listed in the chart, the APR Intake system flowed dramatically more than the stock unit. This trend continues to climb as performance levels increase. The APR Intake System is roughly 50% less restrictive compared to the factory intake at stage 2 power levels, and is off the charts at K04 and Stage 3 power levels. By allowing the engine to breathe, the intake system reduces stress placed on the turbocharger, lowers the intake air temperature, and allows for performance gains upwards of 15 HP with the stock turbo. As performance climbs further using larger turbochargers, so does the power gain seen with the APR Intake system!

  • Enhanced Engine Volumetric Efficiency
  • Enhanced Sound of Turbo Diverter Valve
  • Installs in an Hour (does not require bumper or headlight removal)
  • Maintains Clean Appearance by Retaining Factory Engine Cover
  • Maintains All Factory Emissions Components
  • Fits Both Manual and Automatic Transmissions
  • Unique Thermal Barrier Composite Construction Ensures Low Inlet Temperatures
  • Fully Compatible and Complimentary with APR Software and Exhaust systems

Each Carbonio Intake Kit Includes:

  • Aerospace Grade Carbon Fiber Main Section
  • Carbon Fiber Main Section With Show Quality Finish
  • Complete Photographic Instructions
  • All Necessary Hardware Included for Easy Install without Cutting Or Modifying

Please Note: If you have a Gen 3 2.0T/1.8T engine (2013.5+) you will need to select the CI100020E adaptor option above. This intake is for use on TSI 2.0T/1.8T motors only. Stage 2 pipe does not fit Gen 3 TSI vehicles. This intake does not fit MQB chassis vehicles. The TSI was introduced to most of the vehicles listed here in 2009, replacing the FSI 2.0T motor. If you have any questions or unsure of which type of 2.0T you have, please contact us at
