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.

Don't think Buy!

This kit completely transformed my Rabbit! no more rev hang apart from added power, sound, 7200rpm redline. This kit is 100% worth installing if you own a 2.5!

Looks nice, but not seeing a lot of power gain

This took about a day and half to put in, granted I also did some other things while I had the front end of my car open, it looks and sounds nice with the aftermarket tuner, it is a little hard to get it to connect but it can read a lot of data from the device, it also has a very nice intake sound when you are on the throttle, but I am not seeing/feeling the promised 47 HP gain

Integrated Engineering

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review! This manifold and our Stage 2 tune combo will make more power throughout the power band, however, being an NA engine the largest gains are seen above 5000RPM. Your new pull from 5K to 7K RPM should feel dramatic compared to a stock car, make sure you are revving it high enough and staying in the gear long enough to get the full advantage of your new intake manifold.

If you still feel like the power isn't there, it may have a hardware or setup issue causing a problem and our tuning team would love to help you explore that. You can always make a support ticket to make sure your car is performing as advertised, do so here: performancebyie.com/pages/contact

Thanks, Logan! -Tyler At IE

When it worked it was good

I bought the manifold and the Stage2 tune like a year ago. I didn't buy their cold air intake, I used my injen intake without any fabrication. The fit was tight but it worked (so I thought). The second day it threw codes saying maf and map sensors were getting inconsistent readings with each other. (07 rabbit has both sensors). I bought new sensors, new plugs, new coils, high flow cat,leak test, the works. None of their other tunes(stage1or2-87or91octane) would work.Nothing would cure the problem. I even contacted IE and sent them diagnostics (their software has data logging option). Dude was not helpful (very nice though)just understanding and sorry. After a while the code started causing major problems like misfires, fouled plugs, etc. I have an aluminum intake that does nothing.
