The APR Carbon Fiber Intake System is an attractive high performance upgrade for the latest 1.8T and 2.0T engines as found in various MQB platform vehicles.*
The factory intake design has the foundation for excellent performance, but much of this is sacrificed in an effort to meet other design requirements. With requirements set forth for only supporting factory power output levels, low engine sound levels and long service intervals, there is plenty of room for improvement.
The APR Carbon Fiber Intake System increases performance primarily by improving mass airflow through the system while still proving adequate filtration. Expect greater horsepower and torque through the power band with a more direct and responsive feel upon pressing the throttle. Sounds from the engine and turbocharger are enhanced and some may even experience better fuel economy depending on driving style.

Intake looks amazing can't wait to put it on.
Noticed a difference right away after the super easy install.. Engine bay looks a lot nicer, airflow is less restrictive and you can hear more turbo noises. I purchased the kit with the 2nd air filter, inlet tube and reroute hose and would recommend the whole kit to anyone who is considering this intake. In my opinion this intake kit was worth every penny!
Improves looks and performance
This not only removes the eyesore of the stock air intake, but also improves noise, and reduces engine temperatures by noticeable amounts. I would also recommend pairing it up with the carbon inlet pipe to further improve airflow and their catch can.
Beautiful and Functional
APR has created quite a masterpiece with this intake. The OEM setup with its long snorkel across the front of the MQB platform is dreary and ****. This intake allows for direct airflow into the filter and down into your turbo and engine. You will hear a bit more of the air flowing into the engine than the stock setup as well. If you are looking to increase airflow and dress up your engine bay this is the intake for you. Highly recommend the secondary carbon pipe and the coolant hose relocation kit as well.
