The APR Full Carbon Fiber Intake System for the Audi A6 and A7 (C8) 3.0T EA839!
This is the ultimate intake upgrade for the Audi A6 Quattro, A6 allroad, and A7 Sportback 3.0T (C8). It flows 45% more than stock, and reduces pressure drop. This directly translates to +19 AWHP and +17 AWFT-LBS of torque making this a simple upgrade for more power you can feel.
Our system is a full upgrade as it replaces all of the intake components from the inlet scoop all the way to the turbo inlets. This is extremely important as focusing on the airbox alone does not address the main restrictions found in the factory intake system. Simply put, our system flows better than stock, makes more power, puts less strain on the turbocharger, looks sexy under the hood with the gorgeous carbon fiber design, and enhances the sound of the engine.
Features and Benefits
- Full intake system: Inlet, airbox, filter, and inlet piping
- +19 AWHP & +17 AWFT-LBS at the wheels measured over stock
- Flows 45% more than stock at 28" H2O
- Reduced pressure drop at the turbo inlets
- Enhanced engine sound
- Carbon fiber construction
- Turbo spool faster
- Turbo operates more efficiently
- Massive 7” x 7” filter with a 4” outlet and 5.5” frontal inlet
- High flow and washable pleated cotton gauze filter material
- Airbox open away from engine to maximize flow and filter size in a restricted space
- Inlet piping diameter is maximized from the 4” filter all the way to the turbocharger
- Inlet piping addresses system restriction, unlike competitive airbox systems that are compatible with factory inlet piping
- Billet turbo adapter rings make fitting this system to larger turbo possible
- Emissions friendly
The factory turbocharger inlet pipe is a big restriction point because it’s small. It’s common for most intake systems to only focus on the filter and airbox, but doing so only has minimal impact on performance. Furthermore, upgrading the turbocharger inlet pipe only has minimal impact on performance if it still necks down to with the factory or aftermarket intake airbox. We solve this by making our pipe as large as possible from the 4” filter outlet all the way to the turbocharger inlet in one piece! This minimizes pressure drop and increases flow through the system far better than a multi-piece solutions.
Our system is made from carbon fiber and looks absolutely stunning under the hood. By using this material we are able to make the wall-thickness of the tubes smaller, maximizing the internal diameter, increasing performance even more! The material also allows us to make complex organic shapes necessary when working in a tight engine bay.
The airbox on this platform is tiny and leaves nearly no room to upgrade the filter. Our system works as a heat shield but is open on the bottom and side to allow for a larger filter and maximum airflow. This keeps air temps down, and increases sound without it being overbearing. The filter is massive as well. A big filter is desirable as increasing filtered surface area keeps the filter breathing easily for many miles as it filters dirt, dust, and particles. It measures 7” by 7” with a 5.5” frontal inlet, and a 4” outlet. The filter media is a washable pleated cotton gauze that can be cleaned for extended life, or replaced with ease.
Our kit includes everything you need to bolt on and go. No new tuning is needed, and the product is emissions friendly. We include all the nuts, bolts, and clamps needed for an easy install. Lastly, thanks to our billet turbo inlet adapters, this is the only intake you’ll ever need. Should you later upgrade your turbo, new, larger adapters can be installed to adapt to the larger inlets simply by swapping out the billet adapters!
The factory intake simply can’t match the performance of ours. The factory system flows a maximum of 383 CFM at 28” in of H2O. We improve this by 45% as our full intake system flows 555 CFM! We’ve reduced pressure drop across the system as well. The turbo spool faster, and operates in a more efficient region of the compressor map. This directly translates to more power and torque you can feel. On our Stage 1 (93) A6 we saw an improvement of 19 AWHP and 17 AWFT-LBS of torque simply by installing our intake system!

Only use fuel equal to or higher than specified. Never use a lower octane fuel. Always follow our fuel guide, especially with race fuel and Ethanol, where available. Dynos are for reference only. Results will vary. Contributing factors include the vehicle condition, vehicle setup, dyno type, dyno setup, environmental factors, fuel quality, and more. When describing fuels, the North American Region (NAR) uses the Anti-Knock Index (AKI), (RON+MON)/2, or (R+M)/2. The Rest of the World (ROW) uses RON. RON is Research Octane Number and MON is Motor Octane Number.
