About the AWE Tuning Golf R C|C|B Intake
The Golf R is a unique beast. And so should be its intake. AWE Tuning R&D has spent considerable time to ensure that this C|C|B Intake would offer impressive mid-range gains, solid trim levels, CEL free operation and perfect daily-driving manners.
Where “open” air filters may allow Golf R owners to “check off” that the intake upgrade is complete, the reality is that open air filters can also suck in the heat from the engine bay, which ironically can kill power gains that the free flowing filter would have generated. Not this one.
The oiled cotton gauze filter within the Golf R C|C|B Intake was custom designed by the AWE Tuning engineering team for a higher flow rate while adhering to industry standard filtration rates. In a word: Better.
Carbon Fiber that fits
The AWE Tuning C|C|B Intake features a top-of-the-line proprietary Golf-R-specific carbon box that ensures that only cool, fresh air is inhaled, equaling efficient power gains. And since the carbon box was designed in house at AWE Tuning specifically for your Golf R, the fitment is tight and perfect.
Dyno testing on AWE Tuning’s AWD Mustang Dyno revealed max power gains of +25 crank hp and +20 crank tq at redline, with healthy usable gains in the midrange. Extensive power testing also showed that no sustainable gains were possible unless piping after the mass air sensor was uncorked, so our Golf R C|C|B Intake includes 2.75” inch diameter stainless steel piping after the airbox. Free the air.
We’ve always loved the R, maybe that’s why we spent so much time developing the perfect intake.
