Integrated Engineering's NEW MK6 R 2.0T Intake Manifold and Software Solutions

The new Integrated Engineering 2.0T intake manifold has been carefully designed to provide an effective power increase across the entire rpm range with no loss in low-end power or spool time, with the ability to be used on any turbo setup, including the stock Golf R turbo. We have incorporated several motorsport features into this intake manifold, making it outperform the factory unit, as well as other aftermarket manifolds available.

Performance data:
Using the latest in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software, our engineers have optimized the manifold's airflow and power range for virtually any turbo charger. As seen below on an IE stage 2 91 octane K04 Golf R, there are significant power and torque increases throughout the entire rpm range, with no loss in low-end power or spool time. What that means for you is an incredible increase in the driving experience with a bolt-on performance product, with truly no downsides. Larger power gains are to be seen on big turbo setups as well, with a manifold that is tuned for the natural powerband of the 2.0T engines.

Performance design:
Our plenum design has been generously sized and shaped to optimize and distribute airflow evenly to all 4 cylinders. Plenum volume has been increased to 2.4L, much larger than any other manifold available. To match the large plenum, we have precisely tuned runner length and diameter. Dramatic power and torque increases come from making small changes to the runner design. Our engineers are equipped with CFD software, 3D printing, and in-house engine and chassis dynamometers that were used to research and test many velocity stack and plenum designs. The end result is the best performing intake manifold optimized specifically for 2.0T engines. The IE intake manifold is the only manifold on the market that incorporate integrated velocity stacks.

Each manifold is cast and machined in the USA by a foundry who is a major OEM supplier. The manifolds are cast from a special self aging, self hardening alloy with especially strict requirements for chemical composition. Top of the line Japanese machining centers machine all major surfaces of the parts in one setup, ensuring perfect fit, finish, and maximum value. Each manifold is finished with a black powdercoat and equipped with a billet velocity stack cover, available in an array of colors.

Additionally, the manifolds are provided with a 1/8" NPT tapped port on each runner for water/methanol injection setups. For builds not using water/methanol injection, you can simply block off the ports using the provided plugs. For advanced builders, our engineers have left generous space around these ports, which can be machined for injector ports if desired for secondary fuel systems. Integrated Engineering will not be offering a machining service for these injector ports.

Full Feature list:

We have carefully engineered and tested this intake manifold in house to get the best results possible in any condition. Due to the unique plenum and runner design all setups with K04 or larger turbos will see gains throughout the entire RPM range.

Featuring aggressively sized runners and velocity stacks that have been optimally tuned for large power increases throughout the entire RPM band. The flow tested velocity stacks deliver more air than any other manifold on the market.

With carefully selected runner diameter and length, the IE manifold provides a good balance of power gains throughout the entire powerband, with no loss in spool time or low-end power.

Each runner is ready for individual water/methanol injection nozzles. The cast and pre-drilled and threaded 1/8" NPT ports will make installing your water/meth setup easy. For those not using this feature, the manifolds include blocking plugs.

The manifolds are cast from a special self aging, self hardening alloy with especially strict requirements for chemical composition. The aluminum manifold makes a great replacement for the stock plastic unit, which is common failure point.

This plenum on this manifold has been generously sized and shaped to distribute airflow as evenly as possible to all 4 cylinders. The 2.4L internal volume is a massive improvement over the factory piece and ensures a steady supply of air for the engine.
