  • Powder-coated aluminum filter plate & velocity stack
  • Stainless laser-etched logo plate

ROTOMOLD POLYMER

A special rotational molding method is used to manufacture a robust single-piece intake with consistent wall thickness, strong corners, and superior heat resistance. This also allows for complex shapes and angles to maximize internal volume for air supply and smooth flow for the most performance available. Enjoy a performance air intake without compromise.

SEAMLESS DESIGN

The entire intake is designed as a single piece airbox to offer a seamless and complete look with an above factory quality fit and finish.

BUILT-IN VELOCITY STACK

The built-in velocity stack creates a smooth transition from the large filter area to the turbo inlet. This motorsport design offers excellent laminar properties resulting in a very high inertia flow with reduced drag and power-robbing turbulence.

OPTIONAL TURBO INLET

Our intake airbox is designed to accept our cast turbo inlet pipe to increase airflow over stock from 24% (intake only) up to 50.4% combined! Adding a turbo inlet further reduces significant air restrictions while maintaining the largest size possible from the airbox to the turbocharger.

Turbo inlet pipe is an optional upgrade and can be purchased with your intake or added at a later date.

HYBRID TURBO READY

The intake and turbo inlet combo makes upgrading to a hybrid turbo a simple bolt-in job. CNC-machined and o ring sealed adapter rings fit the stock or a variety of aftermarket turbos without hassle. The turbo inlet continually adapts to the turbo to not introduce any restrictions and maintain the largest size possible when upgrading turbos.

Hybrid turbo adapter rings are sold separately from the turbo inlet upgrade.

MULTIPLE PRESSURE ZONES

Multiple air supply avenues are used to guarantee airflow for any power level. High-pressure flow from the grille directly provides a ram air supply to the filter. If additional air demands are required, the intake will pull low-pressure air through the filter plate louvers as needed. This dual-zone design ensures your intake will never be a power limitation for even the most extreme builds.

PERFORMANCE SOUND

Your stock airbox is manufactured under regulations to perform only one job; mute all engine and turbo sound at any performance cost. Your new IE poly intake system will release the sweet sounds of turbo spool, engine throttle, and diverter blow-off that your S-class SUV deserves.

PRECISION DESIGN

3D scanning tools are leveraged to create a high-resolution digital environment allowing our engineers to take advantage of all available space for a complete performance design while ensuring a hassle-free install.

The affordable intake that doesn't skimp on quality or performance.

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 50.4% 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. High & low-pressure zones channel low-temp airflow quickly to the engine while protecting it from radiant engine heat.

Nice unit👍🏻

The whole thing mounts at only 3 points. The box gives you all the turbo sound you need without sounding like an open to atmosphere BOV. A bit on the pricy side but I'm loving the sounds. I have not run mine yet but all over TUBE guys pick up a full 2/10’s consistently back to back just from this unit with the aluminum intake. She can breathe💪🏻

Easy install/sounds amazing/love the look!

The install was super easy and only took 15-20 minutes. I love the OEM+ look and the sound is just amazing. When doing some around town driving it isnt over powering sound but when you get moving you can really hear the induction and turbo. Highly recommend. As for the actually power I cant say I notice a difference on the IE Stage 1 tune.

Awesome intake!

Super easy install for a little extra oomph! Turbo sound really wakes up (especially with addition of turbo inlet pipe). Both are easy at home installs. Stop reading reviews and buy this intake!

Excellent fitment

I dreamed of having a carbon fiber intake from iE but couldn't justify the cost vs. carbon fiber. This polymer intake does the same thing with less attention to smog officials in my state of Comi-fornia. This intake frees up a little bit of horse power feeding the charger. It produces a great sound without sounding like an obnoxious tuner. You can hear the turbo spool and breath more freely. I am stoked to have installed this on a fairly stately car.
