Product description

USP Motorsports is proud to offer a complete closed element air intake system for the 1.8T and 2.0T Generation 3 EA888 engines. After testing several designs, USP chose to go with a closed element intake system which is fed directly through the front grill of the vehicle.

Starting at the rear turbo pipe, USP incorporates 3" aluminum tubing which provides a smoother path for air flow. In addition to increased air flow, the aluminum tubing is stronger and more durable than the factory plastic hose.

The turbo inlet hose is joined to a closed element carbon fiber canister filter. The canister filter does not just look good but also performs. Constructed of carbon fiber and incorporating a high flow air filter, this filter was the perfect choice.

Finishing the intake off is USP’s patent-pending Tear-Duct. Not just a normal intake snorkel, the Tear-Duct has specifically been designed to allow maximum air into your engine.  As air enters the front of your vehicle it is captured and compressed at the Duct. As air moves through the Duct, it is further compressed by the “Tear Drop” design located at the rear of the duct. The “Tear Drop” not only compresses the air but also increases flow allowing more air to be pulled into the engine.

Dyno testing yielded exception power results through-out the RPM range. Users can expect to see gains of 8-16 wheel horsepower and 10-16 ft/lbs of torque at the wheels. Modified vehicles will experience larger power gains. 

- Closed element carbon fiber filter
- Patent pending Tear-Duct 
- Complete intake solution
Please note VW Passats require an air intake bracket which is available below under "Recommended by the Experts".

The usp tear duct intake is a great buy and very easy to install. The hardest part was removing the stock intake which can be time consuming.

Advantages: I havent dyno tuned my car but i do believe with my downpipe and apr stage 1 tune that there was some horsepower and torque gain. For the price it is listed you can't really beat it.

Disadvantages: Its very quiet. Meaning if you're looking for turbo noises you might want to go with a different brand. You really have to listen with the windows down or the music off to hear anything.

Great looking intake

Advantages: It looks very clean and different from other intakes out there.

Disadvantages: It's very quiet, I personally like hearing the sound of an intake. I ended up taking it apart and putting an open filter on the pipe. Great for looks otherwise spend the extra money for an open filter.

Nice intake, quite a bit louder than stock, plenty loud enough for me. Stock intake was a bit of a pain to remove, job will take you a couple hours start to finish.

Advantages: Looks good, sounds good.

Disadvantages: Make sure you rotate the filter so the screws don't contact your engine cover, they scratched mine.

Installed this on my 2015 Passat 1.8 TSI. Fitment is good and it looks really great. My throttle response is better and car drives smoothly. It is quiet under normal driving but really wakes up when you floor it. It makes a nice turbo noise when you step on it.

Advantages: Quiet for normal driving
Looks high end
Fits good
True ram air intake

Disadvantages: None so far

It is a great intake, and easy install. Customer service could be better

Advantages: Gain a small amount of hp, and a little more throttle response.

Disadvantages: It's quiet, you can hear the turbo spool very little.
