Functionally, a vastly-enlarged airbox houses a giant TriFoam triple-layer filter. Using twin front air intakes, from both sides of the front panel, this rates the intake up to 600bhp through the very significantly improved mass airflow through to the turbo. Appearance-wise, the airbox is manufactured in the UK from the same PU material as the original factory airbox, matched in to the same finish and appearance as the engine cover.
This attention to detail extends to all the fittings, which use the factory mounting methods ensuring simple and reliable fitment. All to assure you of the same levels of quality and durability as a factory part.
TURBO INLET ELBOW
The VWR High Flow Turbo Inlet has been engineered as a simple upgrade to significantly increase air flow into the turbocharger. It’s the perfect complement to either our R600 Cold Air Intake, the standard airbox or indeed any other aftermarket intake system.
A simple fitment, the VWR High Flow Turbo Inlet is a large diameter, free flowing intake elbow, CNC machined from aluminium billet to replace the small and restrictive plastic factory inlet.
Without it the potential of any high flow intake system is wasted because any smooth flowing intake charge has to taper down to pass through the tight and restrictive bend of the factory part.
The result? Back-to-back comparisons against the factory elbow on our flow bench reveals an impressive improvement in airflow. We’ve seen some surprisingly significant power and torque increases from the fitment of the VWR High Flow Turbo Inlet as a result of the faster turbo spool and increased airflow it generates. It’s also possible to hear an enhanced sound from the turbo which comes as another benefit for any enthusiast.
TURBO MUFFLER DELETE
The VWR Turbo Muffler Delete is a simple and cost-effective upgrade for any MQB-platform car using the 1.8T and 2.0T EA888 TSI engines with the IHI turbo.
The VWR Turbo Muffler Delete is a sleek single billet design which replaces the restrictive, power-robbing OEM part with allowing a smooth, turbulence free air path exiting the turbo.
What does it do? The standard part is located on the outlet of the turbo compressor and is simply designed to reduce engine bay acoustics. Whilst it subdues the harmonic noises generated by the turbo, it also adds in disruptive turbulence to the airflow right where you don’t want it.
By replacing the standard part with our VWR Turbo Muffler Delete it is possible to replace this restrictive section with a straight, uninterrupted piece. The result: better boost response giving a little more power, as well as being able to actually hear the turbo working.
Our Turbo Inlet Pipe is a large diameter smooth-flowing silicon hose, crucially with enough compliance to allow for adequate engine movement without causing damage to the intake. There are solid turbo inlet pipes on the market, but without this compliance as the engine rocks under power, then something has to give – with a solid pipe it will either be your intake, or the pipe itself.
Back-to-back comparisons with the factory pipe on our flow bench reveals an impressive improvement in airflow, and makes a great compliment to the R600 intake.
