CTS 3″ air intake system for the Audi/VW 1.8T, 2.0T Gen1 and Gen3 TSI. This kit includes parts that make it compatible with both generations of TSI engines!
The air scoop works in conjunction with our sealed airbox to seamlessly force cold air into our 3″ air intake system. Air then flows through our high flow cone air filter, which utilizes an inverted cone design for maximum engine breathing. The CTS 3″ CNC mandrel-bent aluminum intake pipe allows for smooth entry of cold air into the engine providing peak power gains ranging from 9-15WHP. By using a factory MAF housing (when equipped), you can be sure that fuel trims will remain perfect.
All of the components included in the CTS air intake system work flawlessly together to provide increased horsepower and torque throughout the entire power band and an aggressive race-inspired sound.
This intake kit is designed to be compatible with factory turbochargers, K04 turbochargers and CTS Gen1 TSI BOSS turbo kits. The intake pipe features 2x 1/8" NPT bungs for easy installation of BOSS kits.
