IE MK5 & MK6 2.0T TSI HIGH FLOW COLD AIR INTAKE KIT

http://www.performancebyie.com/ie-mk...air-intake-kit

just made a purchase. intake looks well built, and as of the price how can you beat it. review coming soon


REVIEW


Packaging: everything was included, the box was packed very well and the contents were protected with wrapping

Installation: simple, no modification needed. all clamps supplied were used. I was very satisfied that the heat shield lined up, the rubber gourmets were pre-installed as well as the stripping around the heat shield.

Driving impressions:

normal driving: you can hear the induction noise very well, you can hear the turbo instantly with a push of the throttle, you don't have to get on it to hear the intake

spirited driving: simply amazing. I have had the apr stage 1 & 2 intake before and this intake sounds so much better. if you are looking for a turbo that gives you the noises of blow off, this is the one

Wide Open Throttle: on the butt dyno I definitely feel something there. based off observations on my boost gauge (mechanical) I can see I get to full boost quicker and seems to hold boost longer to the redline.

I haven't been able to do after comparisons with the torque app but I will get those when I can. for the price you cant beat it, simple as that. I based my purchased decision on a few different things. confined filter heat shield with the velocity stack. this filter measured 5". is does use the stock MAF location, no need to worry about fuel trim issues.



It's going down

yeah I was looking at this, there's some real competition now for Uni! This looks like a solid part

Nice! It's purdy, and the heat shielding seems well designed. Looking forward to your review, Joe!

Happen to know the diameter of the stage 2 piping (portion of be that goes behind the motor)?

I have the Neuspeed P-Flo (and have been happy with it), which doesn't come with the stage 2 part of intake. If the piping is much large than stock, I might consider making the switch... hmm.

I'm going to guess 3" judging by the coupler that has a reducer to the turbo inlet.

An intake can only flow as much as the smallest point. It all comes down to minimizing heat and turbulence before that point.

Ah, makes sense.

Great points, Andre. It's been so long since I put my P-Flo in, I was sitting here wondering why I never gave the stage 2 portion more consideration. Recalled that that's exactly what someone had told me/read somewhere, and ultimately I decided the P-Flo was the best intake for me for the price.

However, I am now interested in replacing it with a different system. I like the heatshield that the IE and aFe intakes come with. If I replace my P-Flo with the IE system, I will reduce intake temps (because of the more comprehensive heat shielding compared to the P-Flo), and reduce turbulence by eliminating that rigid flex elbow of the stock intake.

The bellmouth housing/velocity stack also helps with flow and maf readings. Check it out

Yeahh, just saw that video a little while ago.

Regarding temps, another thing I am considering doing is wrapping the stage 2 portion with heat tape (like you did). I am also considering getting the PTP turbo blanket.

Mine isn't wrapped anymore, just a 4" unfinished aluminum pipe straight to the turbo. I'm spraying so much meth and fuel before the intake valves that my cf is basically always 0. only thing that matters with my setup is the air hitting the filter.

Subd for review. IE's marketing with vids on this intake made me consider buying one but my Neuspeed P-FLO functions great. If IE's intake gets good user reviews I may try it.
