Choose the polymer for a refined, factory-upgraded look or opt for carbon fiber to add a sleek, motorsport aesthetic.

HARSH CLIMATE UPGRADE

Drive with confidence and keep your engine safe on dirt roads, sandy areas, or anywhere your intake is exposed to contaminants. Our filter uses a 3-step approach to combat harsh climates: it features 8 pleats, is treated with penetrating filter oil, and is covered with a pre-filter sock. This offers superior filtration and peace of mind for your intake system in questionable conditions.

The iE air intake kit includes silicone couplers for both the stock turbo inlet and our upgraded iE turbo inlet.


RAM AIR SCOOP

Our intake design features a robust aluminum alloy heat shield that spans the entire length of the front clip. This innovative design channels high-pressure outside air from the front grill directly to the integrated velocity stack and air filter, effectively sealing off hot engine bay air for superior heat resistance.y.

MOTORSPORT SOUND

We know a fast car is fun to drive, but a great-sounding one puts a smile on your face. Our high-velocity bellmouth and free-flow design amplify engine notes and turbo sounds, creating an addictive symphony every time you throttle down.

BUILT-IN VELOCITY STACK

The built-in velocity stack is a true motorsport design feature used in professional racing. Its bellmouth shape efficiently channels the high airflow from the 5" air filter's surface area, smoothly transferring it to the intake piping with minimal drag and power-robbing turbulence.

HASSLE FREE & PERFECT FIT

Utilizing advanced 3D scanners and specialized software to create a digital model of the engine bay. This digital environment ensures the intake clears and fits exactly like a factory-installed unit. Rapid-print prototyping is used to ensure real-world fitment and clearances before moving onto production. The result is an intake that provides a hassle-free install with angles and curves that not only look at home in your engine bay but elevates the style altogether.

POWER GAINS

iE engineers set out to create the ultimate MQB EA888 Gen 3 cold air intake system. On turbo engines, flow means power. Utilizing cutting-edge technology, race-proven design features, and extreme attention to detail, the results are gains of up to 15WHP and 13 ft-lbs of torque, with even higher increases possible on hybrid and large turbo setups! This intake exceeds expectations in power, sound, quality, and above all -fun!

FLOW TESTING

Replacing the factory plastic intake box and small diameter piping with iE's true motorsport designed intake in back-to-back flow bench testing shows consistent airflow gains up to a 67% increase in flow over stock.

8.5V S3 CAI

It was worth every penny I wish I would have bought sooner. It was the first mod I did, very easy to install, and really wakes up the car. The sounds are crazy, and noticeably improves the throttle response. I would recommend pairing it with the inlet pipe and muffler delete.
