APR Carbon Intake – 1.8/2.0TSI EA888 Gen 1
The APR Carbon Fibre Intake System lets your engine breath! The stunning carbon fibre 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 optimising 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 Fibre 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 Fibre 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 aluminium 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 and improves upon the previous design. 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!
