APR CI100045 Carbon Fiber Intake System Audi C8 S6 and S7
You save: $100.05
The APR CI100045 Intake is a full intake that replaces all of the intake components from the inlet scoop all the way to the turbo inlets. It flows 33.5% more than stock, reduces pressure drop, and improves linearization across the turbos.
The OEM Audi turbocharger inlet pipe is a big restriction point due to it's small size. It's common for most intake systems to only focus on the filter and airbox, but doing so only has minimal impact on performance. Furthermore, upgrading the turbocharger inlet pipe only has minimal impact on performance if it still necks down to with the factory or aftermarket intake airbox. APR solved this by making their pipe as large as possible from the 4" filter outlet all the way to the turbocharger inlets in one piece! This minimizes pressure drop and increases flow through the system far better than multi-piece solutions.
The APR system is made from carbon fiber and looks absolutely stunning under the hood. Using this material allows the wall-thickness of the tubes to be smaller, maximizing the internal diameter, increasing performance even more! Carbon Fiber also allows forming the complex organic shapes necessary when working in a tight engine bay.
The airbox on the Audi S6 / S7 is tiny and leaves nearly no room to upgrade the filter. The APR system works as a heat shield but is open on the bottom and side to allow for a larger filter and maximum airflow. This keeps air temps down, and increases sound without it being overbearing. The filter is massive as well. A big filter is desirable as increasing filtered surface area keeps the filter breathing easily for many miles as it filters dirt, dust, and particles. It measures 7" by 7" with a 5.5" frontal inlet, and a 4" outlet. The filter media is a washable pleated cotton gauze that can be cleaned for extended life, or replaced with ease.
