Take your driving experience to the next level with IE's cutting-edge B9 S4 and S5 intake system. Features like carbon fiber construction, velocity stack technology, large filter size, and maximized flow rates deliver increased power, sporty engine sound, and a responsive throttle feel for your turbocharged 3.0T engine.
So far so good, but disappointed by some of the engineering
- Performance: The intake has only been in for a day, but so far so good! The throttle is more responsive, sounds great, and looks great.
- Installation: Was disappointed in some of the engineering
1. The grommet mount bolt provided didn't fit through the hole of their own intake. I had to drill a larger hole... for a $1000 intake, this was a surprise.
2. The inlet for the filter had a very slight cone shape, so when you tighten (not over tighten) the hose clamp, it tries to follow the cone upwards; ultimately popping the filter off. It took me 30 minutes of fiddling with it to get the filter snug, and I am still worried that the filter will pop off while driving...
Overall, I paid a pretty penny to avoid these types of implications. So it was a disappointment needing to deal with them. BUT, after the installation, things seem to be performing well (long as my filter stays on).
