APR Carbonio B8/B8.5 3.2/4.2L FSI/3.0 TDI Carbon Fiber Intake System
Carbonio's latest carbon fiber intake for the 4.2L FSI V8, 3.2L FSI V6 and 3.0 TDI engine is a ram air design that completely separates the intake filter from the engine bay. Building from years of experience on and off the race track, Carbonio's and APR's engineering teams have spent countless hours developing a true cold air and ram air carbon fiber design that can be recreated affordably for the street performance enthusiast.
For many years professional motorsport organizations have suffered great expense to properly tune the air intake delivery system for use in endurance and sprint races where every last horsepower and pound feet of torque can make the difference in position when crossing the finish line. Historically these designs have proven to be the most efficient and powerful although the most expensive to produce.
Aftermarket performance companies have attempted to capitalize on these designs however the cost restraints have typically resulted in compromise and deviation from the true engineering principles associated with motorsport accomplishment. Don't be fooled by catch phrases and tag lines alluding to a new intake technology or special design characteristic. You won't see any of these gimmicks installed on race cars at the Nurburgring.
Carbonio and APR have gone even further to maintain all oem specifications necessary to integrate cohesively with an otherwise stock engine to avoid raising eyebrows at the dealership. Flexibility was another characteristic of Carbonio's and APR's design whereas the new intake is also suitable for Stage 1 and Stage 2 modified engines all the way up to an APR Stage III Supercharger System in the case of the S5 4.2L FSI V8!
Constructed of aerospace grade carbon fiber and designed to remove intake restriction, APR’s Carbonio intake system provides smoother transitional airflow, increased air velocity, superior insulation of the incoming air to reduce intake air temperatures and a larger volume of available air to aid throttle response.
Non Collapsible Design
During APR's S5 4.2L FSI V8 Stage III Supercharger development, APR's Engineering Teams quickly realized the factory intake system was not suitable for the significantly increased demands set by the APR Supercharger unit. The factory rubber intake plenum would collapse under boost and rob the engine of precious airflow. In some cases, the factory rubber intake plenum would completely detach and seal off the intake system! Thankfully APR's Carbonio intake system does not suffer this design characteristic making this intake system suitable for even the most demanding horsepower requirements!
Smooth and Direct Air Flow
The OEM intake system vents some of the incoming air into the engine bay and takes several twists and turns before the air ever reaches the engine. The Carbono intake system simplifies the intake system by directing all incoming air directly at the filter. This allows for faster throttle response and increased torque at all RPM's.
Benefits of the Carbonio CAI System include:
- Increased Horsepower and Torque
- Improved Throttle Response
- Improved Fuel Economy
- Enhanced Engine Volumetric Efficiency
- Enhanced Sound of the Engine
- Installs in an Hour (does not require bumper or headlight removal)
- Removes OEM intake snorkel which can collapse under boost (On Forced Induction Setups)
- Maintains Clean Appearance by Retaining Factory Engine Covers
- Maintains All Factory Emissions Components
- Fits Both Manual and Automatic Transmissions
- Fully Compatible and Complimentary, with APR Software, Exhaust Systems and Supercharger Systems
- Maintains the Thermostatically Controlled OEM Flap Valve Assembly from the Factory Air box
