Carbonio and APR have maintained all OEM specifications necessary to integrate with an otherwise stock engine to avoid raising eyebrows at the dealership. Flexibility is another characteristic of this design, since the new TSI intake is also suitable for Stage 1 and Stage 2 modified engines all the way up to and beyond APR's Stage 3 Turbocharger System.
Ram air induction is accomplished by maintaining the oem air inlet opening at the front of the hood edge, which is the highest pressure area of airflow across the entire vehicle. Placement of the air filter as close to this high pressure zone as possible results in overcoming some of the airflow restriction created by even the highest flow air filters available. Cold air induction is accomplished by sealing the intake system from the hot engine bay air and then insulating it even further through the use of carbon fiber, as well as an additional thermal barrier application to the inside of the intake system.
The CBFA engine code requires the use of a breather filter kit to work in conjunction with the factory Secondary Air Injection system.
