USP Tear-Duct MQB Cold Air Carbon Intake

Back by popular demand, the USP Motorsports Carbon Fiber Tear-Duct Cold Air Intake just couldn't stay away. With one thing in mind, to keep it simple. USP has been running this cold air intake on many of our MQB platform vehicles and shop customers since the release of the MK7 platform. This simple, yet effective intake allows you to get everything you need out of an intake without breaking the bank. 


  • USP's Tear-Duct Powder Coated Intake Ram
  • Carbon Fiber Housing High Flow Intake Filter
  • Wire Reinforced 4-ply Silicone Inlet

The inlet has been designed and tested on every Stage 3 MK7 GTI and Golf R USP has built. Many factory and aftermarket inlet hoses collapse under significant stress, we use wire reinforced construction to keep the 4-ply silicone inlet from giving in to any kind of beating. 

Replacement Filters Available:

Great value for money.

Advantages: Easy to install, looks nice, good value for money, and improves intake sound, probably increases power by a small amount.

Disadvantages: Didn't include the screw required to fasten it to the grille. Didn't include any type of instructions which might be problematic for people for very little mechanical skills. The intake inlet does not sit perfectly flush to the grille, which really detracts from the aesthetics. The intake kit came with a secondary filter, but this isn't listed in the provided items online, so I ended up purchasing a secondary filter from the recommended list thinking that the kit didn't come with one. So I've spent an additional $20 for a part that I'll never use..

Nice looking intake, build quality is very nice as well, the box comes packaged nicely. I can’t speak for performance just yet as it can be the placebo effect. It’s adds very little noise. Frees up a lot of engine bay room. Install is very simple and should only take 10/20 mins at best start to finish.

Advantages: Price, fit, haribo gummies

Disadvantages: No directions for the inept.

What a deal! Incredible intake for under $200. Had to pre order but well worth the wait. Fit and finish is incredible. Love the carbon fiber.

Advantages: Simple straight forward install. Took me maybe 15 min. Didn't think it would be this easy.

Disadvantages: The wait to get it from the pre order.
