APR MQB Complete Carbon Fiber Open Intake System - VW Mk7 GTI, GLI, Golf, Audi 8V A3, 1.8T or 2.0T TSI

This kit includes: APR carbon fiber open intake, carbon fiber stage 2 pipe, silicone coolant hose, and cast turbo inlet pipe.

Intake Information:

The APR Open Carbon Fiber Intake System is the ultimate intake system for the 1.8T/2.0T Engine! We've maximized performance and sound dramatically by reducing pressure drop and increasing airflow. This translates to more horsepower and torque, and less physical strain on the turbocharger. The system looks great, sounds amazing, and produces more horsepower and torque you can feel.

APR's beautiful carbon fiber intake system does away with the closed airbox design and uses a massive 7" washable and reusable cotton filter with a frontal inlet and 4" rear outlet. This was necessary to limit pressure drop across the factory system and maximize airflow, while allowing you to fully hear the engine breathe! The massive filter provides excellent filtration. By oversizing the filter, we're able to limit pressure drop without sacrificing filtration. This is made possible through the use of greatly increased filter surface area. Carbon fiber not only looks great, but it allows us to make a complex and organic heat shield shape that keeps hot air pushed through the frontal radiator away from the intake tract. Furthermore carbon fiber allows APR to limit wall thickness on the intake pipe, maximizing the pipe's internal diameter and thus airflow. Lastly, carbon fiber retains heat less than other materials, such as metal, making it ideal for performance.

Carbon Fiber Stage 2 Pipe Information:

The APR Carbon Fiber Turbo Inlet Pipe replaces the rear factory plastic accordion tube with an attractive carbon fiber inlet, complementing the APR Intake System's aesthetically pleasing design. The intake and inlet hose are joined via a necessary flex coupler to allow for adequate engine movement under use without damaging the intake. The turbo inlet pipe is completely compatible with all factory turbochargers and APR's Stage III Turbocharger System.

Silicone Coolant Hose Information:

The factory coolant hose is designed to be routed over top of the intake system. However, when routed underneath the intake, it's far more astatically appealing. The APR coolant hose replaces the factory unit and routes cleanly under the APR MQB-intake pt# CI100033 and around the APR catch can without kinking or adding extra stress to the mounting points.

Cast Turbo Inlet Pipe Information:

The APR Turbo Inlet Pipe is an easy-to-install bolt-on upgrade that eliminates a restriction before the turbocharger. Unlike fabricated units on the market today, ours is cast from aluminum, allowing for an organically shaped inlet that transitions gradually over a large distance. Such a design promotes better flow rather than abruptly reducing at the turbocharger’s inlet like other units. It’s larger than stock throughout, removes a large internal restriction at the PCV inlet, and outflows the factory unit allowing the turbocharger to operate more efficiently. We fully assemble each unit with a billet securing arm, billet PCV bung and new o-ring. The inlet and outlet are CNC-machined to control tolerances and ensure snug and secure connections. This upgrade is recommending at all stages utilizing an IHI IS12, IS20 or IS38 turbocharger!

Please note: Some vehicles came equipped with a secondary air injection pump. If your vehicle has this system this intake  will require an additional breather filter (available as an option above).
