APR Tuning MQB Open Carbon Fiber Intake System
Vendor: APR Tuning
The APR Tuning MQB Open Carbon Fiber Intake System is an attractive high-performance upgrade designed to increase performance by letting the engine breathe more freely. This beautiful carbon fiber intake system does away with the closed airbox design and uses a massive 7 inch washable and reusable cotton filter with a frontal inlet and 4 inch rear outlet. This was necessary to limit pressure drop across the factory system and maximize airflow, while allowing you to fully hear the engine breathe. The massive filter provides excellent filtration. By oversizing the filter, APR was able to limit pressure drop without sacrificing filtration. This is made possible through the use of greatly increased filter surface area. Carbon fiber not only looks great, but it allowed APR to make a complex and organic heat shield shape that keeps hot air pushed through the frontal radiator away from the intake tract. Furthermore carbon fiber allowed APR to limit wall thickness on the intake pipe, maximizing the internal diameter of the pipe and thus airflow. Lastly, carbon fiber retains heat less than other materials, such as metal, making it ideal for performance.
