CARBON FIBER - MORE THAN STYLE

Carbon fiber allows our engineers to create complex shapes and angles to maximize internal volume while maintaining high resistance to heat. This design practice utilizes every millimeter available in the engine bay, providing a much larger air supply and smooth flow.

SEAMLESS DESIGN

Our unique 1-piece airbox design offers a seamless and beautiful look without chances of air leaks, finicky installation, rubbing noises, or parts working loose over time, common with multi-peace airbox designs.

BUILT-IN VELOCITY STACK

The built-in velocity stack smoothly reduces airflow from the massive 5" air filter down to the turbo inlet with excellent laminar properties. This transition creates a very high inertia flow from the huge filter with very low drag or power-robbing turbulence.

MULTIPLE PRESSURE ZONES

The intake takes advantage of multiple air supply avenues to support any power level. The front large air inlet receives outside high-pressure flow from the front of the grille and acts as a ram air design for most of the air supply. Additionally, the filter plate louvers pull extra required air from the low-pressure zone under the intake. These dual zones provide a free air supply across the entire filter and ensure your intake will never be a power limiter for even the most extreme builds.

UNIQUE SOUND

Your sporty SUV is equipped with a 6-cylinder turbocharged engine -sound like one!

The factory airbox is designed to mute all engine and turbo sounds. When upgrading to an IE intake system, you will instantly become addicted to the new turbocharger spool, engine throttle, and diverter valve symphony under the hood. Your SQ5 won't only pull harder, it will also sound classy, refined, and powerful.

OPTIONAL TURBO INLET (COMING SOON)

Upgrading your intake with an IE cast turbo further removes significant airflow restrictions and maintains the largest size possible from the intake to the turbocharger. This combination increases flow from 28% (intake only) up to 57.6% over the stock intake and turbo inlet! Turbo inlet pipe is an optional upgrade and can be purchased with your intake or added at a later date. 

IE B9 SQ5 Turbo Inlet Pipe is in production and coming soon!

PRECISION FIT

3D scanning tools are leveraged to create a digital duplicate of the vehicle's engine bay, grille, bumper, and hood. These high-resolution scans provide a digital environment that allows our engineers to take advantage of all available space while ensuring a perfect fit.

POWER RESULTS

Every inch of IE's intake system evolved from countless design revisions, rapid prototyping, flow bench testing, dyno runs, and real-world verification to maximize airflow and performance. The result is an intake system with power gains of up to 19WHP and 21ft-lbs of torque, with even higher gains possible on hybrid turbo setups!  

FLOW BENCH TESTING

The proof is in the testing. Back-to-back flow bench results show constant and consistent CFM gains of up to 44.2% CFM over stock! This increase in flow details the intake design's efficiency over the factory parts and capability to provide any required airflow demands from ECU tunes and hybrid turbocharger upgrades.

The above gains are a result of various design details:

  1. The 5" air filter surface area and increased air volume improve turbo efficiency.

  2. The internal velocity stack provides a low-turbulence transition from the filter to the inlet.

  3. Carbon airbox high & low-pressure zones channel low-temp airflow quickly to the engine while protecting it from radiant engine heat.

EASY INSTALLATION

The installation process is quick and straightforward using basic hand tools. The entire airbox system utilizes factory-style mounts that ensure a perfect and hassle-free fit.

Intake install time: 1 hour or less

Recommending This Intake To Every SQ5 Owner!!

Stage 2 E85 FBO B9 SQ5. The only thing I was missing was this gorgeous intake. Turbo seems to be breathing MUCH better now. The blow off+spool noises are now not just louder, but absolutely intoxicating. Either you’re stock or tuned, this intake is a MUST for your SQ5! It’s a massive piece of carbon fiber, with a proper flowing filter for optimized airflow. Before I was worried about all the hot air my intake was taking in, now I know for a fact IE has me covered and this intake is pushing the coldest possible air though my IE FDS Intercooler, and into the turbo. Looks amazing under the hood with that glossy carbon fiber. My rating is 10/10 for this piece! Pricing is better than any option on the market as an added bonus.
