Product description

The VWR Cold-Air Intake System replaces the restrictive factory intake circuit with an efficient, high flow intake system that utilizes a reusable lifetime foam filter. Developed for use in the Volkswagen Racing Cup where removal of the factory intake is possible, the VWR system delivers astonishing gains as much as 9% greater at peak power than that of the standard intake system. In some cases, turbocharger spool dropped nearly 500 RPMs reducing turbo lag and creating lighting fast turbo response.

The VWR Intake filter is constructed from three layer open-cell polyurethane form, which gives a high level of filtration to protect the engine from contaminants in the air, while not greatly restricting airflow. This same filter material is used by F1 teams around the world due to it's excellent filtration and airflow properties. In VWR's experience, cheaper foam filter materials are unable to deliver the same flow and filtration meaning a compromise for your engine.

Through greatly improving airflow to the engine and keeping intake temperatures as low as the ambient temperature, more power is produced, turbo lag is reduced and better fuel economy is achieved. These gains are maximized with APR's ECU upgrades.

The VWR Intake System is a ram air style intake, meaning the opening is connected to the factory inlet which draws air directly from the leading edge of the hood. Hot engine bay heat is deflected by the intake housing meaning intake air is only drawn from outside the engine bay.

The race bred nature of the intake system is noticeable instantly upon acceleration. The black aluminum housing, with VWR logo, helps maintain sane engine volume levels compared to an open element system, however make no mistake, you will hear the turbocharger compressing massive amounts of air as the engine is able to breathe for the first time. Releasing the throttle under boost will result in a classic turbocharger woosh as the factory diverter valve opens, releasing compressed air from the intercooler piping back to the uncompressed side of the turbocharger.

Outstanding intake. Bought after WAY too much research of available CAI's. I used this in conjunction with USP's rear "stage2" intake pipe. Pulls way more boost much later into rev band, quicker spool times, looks groovy, lifetime washable filter (no $90.00 replacement filters needed every 6-10K miles) and it's VERY quiet, which is just what I wanted. Couldn't recommend this enough for the MK6 GTI.

Advantages: Quiet, perfect fit, great looks, noticeably better performance, and a solid 3.7 mpg increase.

Disadvantages: A bit pricey, but worth every penny if you want a quiet intake that's a real performer.
