This is not another mass produced "filter on a stick". IE's cold air intake has been specifically engineered and developed using professional racing design aspects and specialized computational flow dynamic software. The result is a true Motorsport intake system that sounds and performs for the track with a sophisticated and classy design.
CARBON FIBER LID
UP TO +21 WHP
ON TUNED ENGINES
The ram air design, built-in velocity stack, and our massive 5-inch filter inlet help deliver the most HP possible from a cold intake system. Expect peak gains of 15-20+HP/TQ on tuned engines.
CARBON FIBER UPGRADE
This highly stylized gloss carbon fiber lid is an optional upgrade that will transform your engine bay with a high-end performance finish. Specially designed to not only fit the IE CAI, but to also conform to the factory engine bay for a 100% perfect fit. A hidden series of install holes under the trim seal on your intake allows for an easy install of our popular carbon fiber lid.
INCREASED AIR FLOW
Upgrading your ECU tune, pulleys, and other power adders requires airflow beyond that of the factory intake box. IE's intake feeds an impressive flow of air from the front of the vehicle directly to your supercharger. More cold air flow means more power, especially during the hot summer months. Ditch your stock restrictive airbox for the IE intake System. -Oh, and it sounds AWESOME too!
HIGH-FLOW VELOCITY STACK
Delivering cold air effectively for power takes more than just an open filter. Employing velocity stack technology like that found in professional Motorpsorts and adapting it for the 3.0T engine, efficiently channels air as quickly as possible. The velocity also functions as a solid mount for the air filter which means no intake pipes rattling or rubbing on heat shields.
This Intake fits Audi 8R SQ5 & Q5 3.0T V6 Supercharged engines without any modification or installation hassles. The install process is simple and can be done quickly with basic tools. The fact that IE intake utilizes the factory airbox mounts ensures a perfect and hassle-free fit. Additionally, the stock mounts allow for engine movement which keeps intake components from getting damaged.
IE uses a multi-piece heat shield which performs and looks great. It effectively channels cold air from the front of the car to the massive performance filter. Furthermore, it eliminates the induction of hot air found in other locations of the engine bay further protecting against power robbing heat off the exhaust and supercharger.
