The IE MK5 FSI Cold Air Intake Kit is the perfect intake upgrade for your engine bay. Benefits include added horsepower and torque, perfect MAF scaling, improved throttle response, and increased turbo noise. Peak gains are generally 10 Horsepower and Torque.
Your MK5 FSI ECU uses the MAF (mass air flow) sensor to calculate how much fuel is needed when idling or driving. When the diameter of the inlet pipe or MAF sensor location is altered it can lead to check engine lights (CEL) or a poorly running vehicle. If you have a CEL related to the MAF sensor after installing a new tune or intake, this could potentially be the cause.
IE has completely eliminated this issue by engineering the perfect MAF sensor placement and IE custom tube diameter. Unlike other 3 inch inlet pipe intakes available, the IE custom tube diameter ensures that the MAF sensor functions as the factory intended. This equates to the car running at it’s full potential and making the most power possible.
IE engineers set out to develop a MK5 2.0T Cold Air Intake that looks great and performs even better. The latest in computer design and 3D scanning technology were employed during the development process for a perfect fit and maximum performance.
Delivering cold air to you engine is a must for making power. The velocity stack efficiently channels air as quickly as possible into the intake system. The velocity also functions as solid mount for the air filter which means no intake pipes rattling on heat shields.
This Intake delivers an impressive flow increase to feed your turbo. More cold air flow means more power; especially during the hot summer months. Ditch your stock restrictive airbox for the IE intake System.
The filter included in this kit is the biggest available on the market! It works efficiently to feed your turbo with the cold air it needs. It also keeps the air going into the turbocharger clean and debris free ensuring long life.
This Intake fits without any modification or installation hassles. The install process is simple and can be done quickly with basic tools. The fact that IE intake utilizes the factory airbox mounts ensures a perfect and hassle free fit. Additionally the stock rubber mounts allow for engine movement which keeps intake components from getting damaged.
Wrinkle black powdercoated inlet pipes and heat shields result in sleek and sporty appearance in any engine bay. As a final touch all IE heat shields are finished with a classy, laser etched, stainless steel IE logo badge.
