APR CI100040 Open Carbon Fiber Intake Audi and Volkswagen
You save: $45.01
The APR Open Carbon Fiber Intake System is an attractive high performance upgrade that increases performance primarily by improving mass airflow through the system while still proving adequate filtration. The full factory frontal airbox only flows 521 CFM at 28” of H2O. APR improved this by 60% with their open airbox, which flows 833 CFM by comparison!
APR's beautiful carbon fiber intake system does away with the closed airbox design and uses a massive 7 inch washable and reusable cotton filter with a frontal inlet and 4 inch rear outlet. This was necessary to limit pressure drop across the factory system and maximize airflow, while allowing you to fully hear the engine breathe! The massive filter provides excellent filtration. By oversizing the filter, APR is able to limit pressure drop without sacrificing filtration. This is made possible through the use of greatly increased filter surface area. Carbon fiber not only looks great, but it allows us to make a complex and organic heat shield shape that keeps hot air pushed through the frontal radiator away from the intake tract. Furthermore, carbon fiber allowed APR to limit wall thickness on the intake pipe, maximizing the pipe's internal diameter and thus airflow. Lastly, carbon fiber retains heat less than other materials, such as metal, making it ideal for performance.
