One of our most popular products is the VWR Cold-Air Intake System kit, enabling cold, dense air from outside the engine bay to reach the fuel metering unit more efficiently for the 2.0 'TFSI' K04 engines.
Some people forget that it's what's inside a cold-air intake that really matters. Our High-Flow TriFoam™ triple-layer construction is simply the best filtration material on the market, and is the key to the power gains achieved. Each filter is handmade in the UK.
Developed for use in our Volkswagen Racing cars, the system delivers really impressive airflow gains - as much as 9% higher at peak power than that of the original intake system. By reducing turbo spool by up to 500rpm in some cases through the enhanced efficiency of the system, lightning fast turbo response is guaranteed. In our experience, no other intake kit gives higher gains.
/// Through keeping intake temperatures as low as possibly, and greatly improving airflow into the engine, more power is produced, turbo lag is reduced and better fuel efficiency is achieved.
/// Turbocharger spool can drop nearly 500 RPMs, reducing turbo lag and creating faster turbo response.
/// Our development has shown that a high-flow intake system on the 2.0 TFSI K04 engine really gives worthwhile gains of up to 30bhp on uprated cars – so this intake is best combined with a remap.
/// Our testing on the VWR Cold Air Intake has given gains of 30bhp on a Stage 2 car, or around 9% more effective peak power compared with the standard factory air box. Testing on cars running 300bhp and beyond shows further increased power improvements from the Intake system, as the standard air box and filter reaches and exceeds its airflow limit.
/// As a race-bred intake system, the rich induction noise is clear as soon as you first accelerate hard. However volume levels are well-contained, and the sound quality is music to the ears of any enthusiastic driver!
