Integrated Engineering Carbon Fiber Intake System For AUDI RS3 8V & TTRS 8S
IE is proud to announce the best looking and highest performing air intake for the RS3 8V and TTRS 8S platforms. To ensure the highest performance, no corners were cut or expenses spared. A massive air filter, carbon fiber construction, large internal volume, and4-inch piping diameter ensure the engine breathes sufficiently and realizes large power gains across the entire powerband.
- Flow increase of 42% over the stock air box
- Autoclaved high-quality glass carbon fiber construction - tough, light, and great looking
- Improved throttle response
- Massive oval-shaped air filter - with the inverted front for improved airflow
- Internal velocity stack - increased airflow and secure filter mounting
- 4-inch inlet piping - Great for stock or upgraded turbo cars
- Undergoes thorough appearance and fitment quality control
- Stepped silicone couplers ensure no flow restrictions or turbulence

The ram-air design and performance features translate into big power gains. This intake system performs great with upgraded ECU Software or upgraded turbochargers. Stage 2 software yielded greater than 25 Horsepower with the addition of the IE intake.
LEADING DESIGN DETAILS
Increased Air Flow
An upgraded intake that only looks pretty and doesn’t improve performance isn’t one IE would ever put its name on. Several design features lead to an impressive 42% increase in airflow over stock. Large power gains will be realized on all applications from mild to wild.
The ram-air design ensures that as much air is forced into the intake system as possible. The intake achieves this by feeding cold air in from the front of the car. The front scoop of the IE intake system spans the entire width of the grille collecting all available air. While producing an intake of this size is expensive, it results in the highest performing product.
Carbon Fiber Glass Construction
Carbon Fiber air intakes not only look great but they also have a key performance advantage of being less heat absorbent. By absorbing less heat intake air temperatures remain cooler than other common construction materials such as sheet metal heat shields and aluminum piping.
4 Inch Carbon Inlet Pipe
A large diameter 4-inch carbon inlet pipe ensures unrestricted airflow into the turbocharger. This large diameter pipe replaces the substantially smaller factory inlet pipe, allowing the engine to breathe properly.
Massive High-flow Air Filter
IE engineers incorporated the largest filter possible. In addition to the sheer size, the frontal area of the air filter incorporates a pleated inverted cone which results in more air induction.
Vented Bottom Plate
For additional flow, the access panel for the air filter features a series of louvres designed to deliver a completely unrestricted supply of air to the intake for any horsepower level. This works in conjunction with the front ram-air design creating a duo of options for unrestricted air supply to ensure you always have full power potential for any turbocharger or ECU tune stage. -Power is in the details! This new vented plate design increases flow by 7.92% (CFM) over the original solid plate design!
Protective Heat Shield
In order to further keep your intake air cooler and protect the high-quality finish of your carbon fiber, a stylish heatshield is included with your intake. This heatshield features bends to wrap it around the inlet and sits between the carbon pipe and turbocharger at their closest and hottest point.
Install can typically be completed in about an hour using basic tools. Be sure to read the install instructions in entirety before starting the process. As a pro tip, keep in mind that carbon fiber scratches easily (especially if tools are dropped on it). CLICK HERE (coming soon) to view and download the install guide.
2019+ Model Fitment
2019+ Audi RS3 and TTRS models will require the use of a diverter valve adapter kit. If you have a 2019+ model, please select the option to add the adapter kit above.
4" Turbo Inlet Adapter Kit
The intake will fit directly to either your stock turbo or IE inlet pipe with no modifications. For the ultimate combination of intake flow, it is also a direct fit with IE's Cast Turbo Inlet Pipe IEINCQ2 (sold separately).
If you are installing along with a non-IE brand 4" sized turbo inlet pipe, an optional silicone adapter kit IEINCQ1-19 (sold separately) is also available to make your install easy. You can add this adapter to your order by selecting the option above.
