Racingline VWR R600 2.0T TSI Intake System - VW MQB Tiguan

In Stock

Looking for the most sophisticated cold-air intake available for your MQB-platform 2.0 or 1.8 TSI EA888.3 car?

The R600 intake is Racingline's best selling system for this platform. Little wonder, as it combines OEM-standard design and quality with significant power gains on uprated cars.

OEM-standards of design, quality, materials and construction, hand-made in the UK. Fits like a factory part; lasts like a factory part.

Twin CFD-optimised front intakes extending across the front of the car help achieve lower intake temperatures and worthwhile power gains.

Enormous airbox volume houses the filter, complete with thoughtful details like connection to the original factory drain tube, and an SAI connection for US cars.


Expect greater horsepower and torque above 4,500rpm with a more direct and responsive feel under throttle. It is the ‘area under the curve’ difference from factory that you will really feel, as the engine is freed to breathe with less restriction as revs increase.

Of course, air intake temperature plays a major role in engine performance, especially on turbocharged engines, and this is another major improvement of the R600 versus the standard airbox.  In an effort to maintain the lowest possible temperatures, the VWR R600 Intake system draws cool fresh air from not one but two intakes across the front of the car through to the giant, sealed airbox. The PU material that the air box itself is constructed from (the same as the original factory part) provides significant heat insulative properties, helping to prevent heat soak into the intake airflow.

Trifoam Filter Unit - Faster, for longer

The highest airflow of all filter types, for the best possible power for more of the time. As a high performance part, regular maintenance is essential to keep it at its very best.


The R600 has been extensively tested on different cars around the world, and as you would expect no expense has been spared during the research and development process.  Pulling together the best motorsport CFD designers to develop the optimum flow patterns, and CAD designers to package the intake precisely into the engine bay, together with the styling determined by an OEM designer all adds up to why we are so confident of the abilities of the new R600.

The R600 engineering team’s overall brief has been focused on optimising the pressure ratio between the inlet and outlet through maximizing filter efficiency. Hence the final specification of greatly increased airbox volume, the twin front-panel intake design and the more than doubling of filter surface area.

Racingline's development has shown that a high-flow intake system on the MQB EA888 engines really only gives worthwhile gains once power outputs reach over 300bhp – up to that level, the original factory intake is satisfactory, especially when combined with a VWR High Flow Panel Filter. So to really get the most from the VWR R600 intake, its fitment should be combined with a reputable ECU upgrade.

Racingline's testing program has been conducted around the world on the VWR R600 Intake. They have tested this intake on every possible VAG MQB 2.0T vehicle, and each has given very worthwhile gains as the standard air box and filter reaches and exceeds its airflow capacity.

Optional Cotton Air Filter

If you would prefer to use a pleated cotton air filter, you may select one as an option above. Please note that this is a special order only item that may take several weeks to arrive.

Sound Quality

The VWR R600 intake system delivers a rich induction noise as soon as you first accelerate hard.  With the increased airflow from this system, you will also not miss the sound of the diverter valve opening when you lift between gears.   However volume levels are well-contained, and the sound quality is music to the ears of any enthusiastic driver!
