The VWR High-Flow Turbo Inlet Pipe is for all MQB 2.0 and 1.8 TSI cars with the EA888 Gen3 engine. The inlet has been engineered to increase air flow through to the turbocharger as the perfect compliment our VWR R600 Cold Air Intake or even the standard airbox.
A simple fitment, it replaces the entire restrictive rear factory plastic ‘bellows’ pipe between the airbox and the turbocharger inlet pipe with an attractive high-gloss red, blue or black finish.
Our Turbo Inlet Pipe is a large diameter smooth-flowing silicon hose, crucially with enough compliance to allow for adequate engine movement without causing damage to the intake. There are solid turbo inlet pipes on the market, but without this compliance as the engine rocks under power, then something has to give - with a solid pipe it will either be your intake, or the pipe itself.
Back-to-back comparisons with the factory pipe on our flow bench reveals an impressive improvement in airflow, and makes a great compliment to the R600 intake.
The VWR High-Flow Turbo Inlet Pipe is compatible with all factory turbos used in the MQB EA888 engined cars, and at the other end, fits onto the VWR R600 intake, or the factory airbox.
By smoothing the airflow path out of the airbox into the turbocharger, a small but useful power gain is made, especially when combined with the R600 cold air intake.
The engine can move considerably under load and so the factory turbo inlet pipe has to allow some flex. This is critical - a solid pipe simply does not allow for engine rock, meaning your intake will be damaged!
Constructed from reinforced high quality silicon, the Turbo Inlet Pipe offers great rigidity to prevent deformation under load.
Fitting is very straightforward. Simply remove the restrictive factory pipe and replace it with the new VWR Turbo Inlet Pipe. And easily returned to standard, should you wish.
As a visible area in the engine bay, the VWR Turbo Inlet Pipe adds to the aesthetics under the bonnet with high-gloss black, red or blue silicon and discreet RacingLine logo in white.
/// The VWR High Flow Turbo Intake Pipe has been engineered to aid an increase in air flow to the turbocharger, replacing the restrictive factory 'bellows' pipe between the airbox and the turbocharger inlet pipe.
/// Through improving airflow into the turbo, especially when combined with a VWR R600 intake system, or the standard airbox using the VWR High Flow Panel Filter, more power is produced, turbo lag is reduced and better fuel efficiency is achieved.
/// Maximised efficiency and improved drivability and torque throughout the rev range means the turbocharger spool comes in earlier at lower revs. When combined with a good air filter, this reduces lag and creates faster turbo response.
/// With simple fitment and wide compatibility, this is a simple, cost-effective and easy upgrade to your car.
/// Unlike some rigid pipes on the market which are sure to damage the intake as the engine rocks under dynamic load, replacing this pipe with the VWR High-Flow Turbo Inlet Pipe will not.
Whatever type of intake system you run, fitment of any sort of rigid carbon or plastic Inlet Pipe is therefore strongly advised against. Fitting such a rigid pipe will void any intake’s warranty if any failure is shown to be caused by the additional stresses that a non-flexible pipe will transfer.
/// Manufactured in UK from high quality reinforced silicon hose.
/// Reinforced hose used in critical areas to avoid compression under load.
/// Carefully designed to fit all EA888 turbos, and all intake designs - including the factory airbox.
