42 Draft Designs High-Flow Intake System for VW Mk5/Mk6 TSI is perfectly integrated. The heatshield follows the natural lines of the engine bay while making use of the OEM air inlet and airbox mounts. The intake elbow slides over the MAF housing without altering the OEM location. Satin black powdercoat finishes off visible components for a clean look. Secondary air plumbing is filtered, secured, and hidden from view.
On the road, 42 Draft Designs High Flow Intake unleashes power and sound. The diverter valve is audible and the sound created by the velocity stack can only be described as vicious. Substantial power gains can be felt throughout the power band with no loss of low-end torque.
42 Draft Designs intake acheivements are well documented and they are ready to apply velocity stack intake design to the entire VW model lineup. 42 Draft Designs now manufactures every critical component in-house. The result is more powerful velocity stacks, unlimited heatshield complexity, and faster production. Quality and attention to detail remain unmatched. VW’s Mk5/Mk6 TSI engine bay doesn’t present much of a challenge to a skilled fabricator. Once the factory airbox is removed from VW's Mk5/Mk6 TSI engine bay, the entire engine bay is wide open for air intake interpretation. There’s enough room to experiment with a dozen unique airflow ideas. There’s also plenty of room to make mistakes. The 42 Draft Designs high-flow intake system focused on velocity stack design and smooth transition principles. The result is an intake that looks great and truly performs.
To understand how it works, let’s follow the airflow. Fresh air meets the front grill, flowing into the OEM air inlet and splitting off 90/10 into our stainless steel heatshield. Air is then delivered to an oversized filter where it is drawn-in by our CNC machined velocity stack. As air passes over the velocity stack it is organized and accelerated into the intake elbow. After an effortless transition into the MAF housing, intake air makes a steadfast run for the turbo. Power gains are a welcome side effect.
