2.0 & 1.8 TSI Carbon Fiber Cold Air Intake System

Out of stock

This carbon fiber intake for the 2.0 & 1.8 TSI engine is a truly race engineered ram air design that is available for the first time as an affordable street car intake system. Building from years of experience on and off the race track, Carbonio’s and APR’s engineering teams have spent countless hours developing a true cold air and ram air carbon fiber design that can be recreated affordably for the street performance enthusiast.

Carbonio and APR have gone even further to maintain all oem specifications necessary to integrate cohesively with an otherwise stock engine to avoid raising eyebrows at the dealership. Flexibility was another characteristic of Carbonio’s and APR’s design whereas the new TSI intake is also suitable for Stage 1 and Stage 2 modified engines all the way up to and beyond APR’s Stage 3 Turbocharger System.

  • Increased Horsepower and Torque
  • Reduced Intake Air Temperatures
  • Increased Air Velocity
  • Smoother Transitional Airflow
  • Increased Throttle Response
  • Reduced Turbocharger Spool Time

There are several variations across the Gen 1, 2 and 3 EA888 1.8T and 2.0T engines and the vehicles in which they are installed. APR has several adapters to allow perfect fitment and compatibility depending each specific platform.


WHY WE LIKE IT: It works! Very well designed product that is a true “cold air” intake. Does not pull hot air in from under the hood. Draws in cool air from grille area and at speed can actually create a positive pressure situation. That is what you would call “ram air” effect. That is a good thing. Every 2.0t & 1.8t needs one. Can be used all the way from stage 1 to stage 3.
