ADD POWER & A MASSIVE POWER BAND

The IE 2.5L Power Kit combines the industry-leading IE performance intake manifold and the IE ECU software tune, this combination maximizes the performance of the factory 5 cylinder engine's potential without adding boost or engine internals. IE Stage 2 software fine-tunes the ECU calibration to match the manifold flow characteristics delivering a higher revving power band and power gains over 40HP & 12TQ (ft-lbs) over stock. 

EASY AT-HOME TUNE INSTALL

Required to flash your new tune, IE's DIY Flash Tool allows you to quickly upload your tune from your own garage or driveway. This OBD plug-in device is easy to use with a Windows-powered laptop and WiFi connection. Your new tool also includes the abilities to switch between multiple octane files (available separately), reading and clearing diagnostic codes, upgrading Stages, or flashing back to stock.

IE COLD AIR INTAKE KIT

Included in Ultimate Power Kits, the IE 2.5L cold air intake kit is designed to make the installation of your new Integrated Engineering 2.5L 5 cylinder intake manifold simple with our direct-fit intake kit. This kit will connect your throttle body to your mass airflow sensor, and place the air filter right behind the driver's side headlight in a partitioned area that only sees fresh airflow. Our specially-made high flow intake pipe features provisions for the valve cover breather, block breather, and SAI pump, so nothing is left unplumbed. The larger IE intake manifold moves the location of the throttle body, factory or other manufacturer cold air intakes will not fit directly and will require modifications to fit. Take this into mind when purchasing a 2.5L Basic Power Kit.

FITMENT RESTRICTIONS

POWER STEERING
This manifold will fit all VW 2.5L engines with the electric power steering system. Some later style engines use a hydraulic power steering pump, which sits right below the factory intake manifold. If your car is equipped with a hydraulic power steering pump, this manifold will not fit.

AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION TUNE REQUIRED
Automatic vehicles require a matching IE TCU Transmission tune to allow high revving of the automatic transmission. The stock automatic tune has internal transmission rev limit controllers that shift before the manifold and software can make the extra power gained through the upgrade. IE's Auto Transmission Tune removes this limiter allowing full advantage of the manifold & tune.

IE PERFORMANCE INTAKE MANIFOLD

The IE performance manifold has been designed from the bottom up to bring your 2.5L engine to life! IE's performance engineered manifold is the only motorsport designed intake manifold available with precisely tuned runner lengths and diameters. This creates a resonance effect which rams more air into the cylinders. The plenum and runner designs have been carefully optimized with computer software for maximum flow, allowing your engine to breathe easier and perform at its best.

IE STAGE 2 MANIFOLD SOFTWARE

The IE Stage 2 performance flash for VW 2.5L engines is designed specifically to re-calibrate the naturally aspirated 2.5L engine for use with the IE intake manifold. That is to not only provide more horsepower and torque, but make the driving experience more enjoyable by removing rev hang, increasing throttle response, and increasing the rev limiter. With such a significant power increase, it makes the vehicle much more enjoyable to drive, with plenty of power available until red line.

NO MODIFICATION FITMENT

The Integrated Engineering 2.5L ultimate power kit has been carefully designed to fit MK5 07K engines while retaining all of your factory components. Through extensive research and development, this intake manifold fits with no modifications to the engine bay, vacuum system, emissions systems, fuel system, or coolant system. With the plenum being larger than factory, the throttle body placement is moved a small amount, which is easily plumbed to your mass air flow sensor using the included 2.5L manifold air intake kit.

INCREASED PLENUM VOLUME

This plenum on this manifold has been generously sized and shaped to distribute airflow as evenly as possible to all 5 cylinders. The increased internal volume is a massive improvement over the factory piece and ensures a steady supply of air for the engine.

FLOW TUNED RUNNER DESIGN

By using a cast aluminum construction manifold, our engineers are able to properly size and shape the manifold runners and velocity stacks for optimal performance. This runner flow and resonance tuning is a huge contributor to the overall performance of the intake manifold and is not possible to achieve on hand-welded manifolds generally available for this platform. Featuring aggressively sized runners that have been optimally tuned for large power increases throughout the mid-high RPM band. Our engineers employ CFD software to research and develop an optimized runner and bellmouth design, after many revisions to the design they have achieved the best runner shape, size, and velocity stack for the 2.5L application.

INSTALLATION

Installation requires removal of the factory intake manifold, fuel injectors, fuel rail, PCV system components, factory intake, and other factory parts. Although the install is straightforward, serious engine damage can occur from incorrect installation and professional installation is recommended. Click here to download the install guide.

VEHICLE FITMENT

  • VW - Rabbit 2006-2009 (MK5) 2.5L (restrictions may apply) 
  • VW - Jetta & Jetta GLI 2006-2010 (MK5) 2.5L (restrictions may apply) 

The included manifold fittings and cold air intake are designed for MK5 platform 2.5L engines. The kit will also fit many MK6 Golf 2010-14, MK6 Jetta 2010-14, and Jetta Sportwagon 2011-14 with some custom modifications and possible fitting alterations.

2005.5 mk5 jetta 2.5l

Would like to first say thank you to the sales and tuning support staff at IE, they are very fast with responses and were very helpful.

As for the install, the intake was a little tricky to line up bottom middle bolt, but once in place and customizing the evap and breather lines, i had no issues with the rest of the install.

Performance wise, this really gave my engine a new life, sounds great and gave that nice powerband we all wished was there from stock.

Can’t live without it!!!

I am very pleased I purchased this intake with the stage 2 tune. I believe Volkswagen should have made the car this fast from the factory lol. Everything came with the intake and tune which made it super easy to install. Only thing I think could have made it better is if the silicone hose that you use to connect the PCV and secondary air injection came with the kit and since the intake dosnt have a bung for the PCV hose like the factory one did there was a little modification done on my part that wasn’t mentioned that I would have to do. Other thank that the intake is of superior quality and the fitting,hose, and bolts were of the same caliber of quality which made installing very easy. And the installation instructions also helped lol. I love it and will never go back to stock. If you have a 2.5 Volkswagen this should be your first upgrade along with an exhaust system.

Works and sounds great

Pretty straight forward install, I just followed the pdf step by step and it went smooth. Had to do very minor modifications to get it to work with some other aftermarket parts I have, other than that it bolted directly on. I did fail to receive the hose for the breather on the valve cover but I blocked off the inlet on the intake boot and am getting a oil catch can for the billet valve cover I had delivered as well. Download went fairly fast (about 20-30 minutes) and it was easy to follow the download instructions. Car sounds and performs great.

So worth it...

Purchased the DSG tune and the Ultimate Power Kit for my MK6 Sportwagen. I've had some issues throughout the install and IE customer support handled everything wonderfully. The sound of the CAI with the intake manifold is great: it gets snarly between 3k-4k RPM, and really opens up above 4k. I've had to install sound deadening under my hood to mitigate some of the volume. If you have a 2.5L and aren't looking for a GTI to solve your craving for additional power, BUY THIS KIT. It was a fun few hours to install.

Fun upgrade

I really like my 2013 base 2.5 5cyl. I added H&R sport springs and a CAI. Better but not quite. I then saw the power kit. This did the trick for me. Just enough torque in town and power to move on the highway. I even see an mpg improvement to 37 on the road (repeated tests). I am looking forward to add the transmission tune. There may not be many of us 2.5 5 cyl folks out there but I definitely recommend this!
