Add horsepower, torque and an aggressive sound to your 2013.5+ Jetta or GLI with the EA888 Gen 3 1.8T or 2.0T TSI engine. Feed your turbocharger with a supply of cold air with this direct-fit high-flow cold air intake kit. This intake features a generously-sized inlet pipe that receives high-velocity air fed directly from a 5" bellmouth. Our high-flow velocity stack is neatly housed in a heat shield, which separates the air filter from hot under-hood air, allowing only cold air to be drawn in to the turbo inlet directly from the front of the car.

This air intake kit provides all the necessary piping and couplers to plumb the intake system from the turbo to the heat shield. The heat shield installs using the OE grommets for easy maintenance and reliable mounting with no rubbing or interference with other factory parts.
The air intake utilizes a high-flow velocity stack behind the air filter to deliver as much air as possible. This bellmouth design increases the air velocity to the turbocharger and pulls cold air equally from all directions into the filter. This bellmouth is securely fastened to the heat shield as a clean pass-through providing a solid mount for the air filter and turbo inlet pipe. You have no worry of the intake pipe moving around and causing damage unlike other intake kits on the market, which simply clamp the filter onto the end of the inlet pipe or MAF. Furthermore, the bellmouth opening allows for a filter with a very large surface area that can support any horsepower goal. The same filter and bellmouth design has been tested to support over 500HP on our twin-scroll big turbo kits with huge success.
COLD AIR HEAT SHIELD
The IE heat shield is designed to create a thermal barrier blocking all of the radiant heat from the engine bay. Only cold air from the front of the vehicle is drawn into the filter from the opening in the radiator support keeping air intake temperatures as cold as possible. This allows factory placement of the intake to be used without placing the filter lower in the vehicle where it can be subjected to engine harming road debris or fluid.
OPTIONAL SECONDARY AIR FILTER KIT (SAI)
VW 3rd generation 2.0T and 1.8T engines equipped from factory with a secondary air injection (SAI) pump will require a small breather filter for this SAI line when installing an aftermarket intake. Engines not equipped with this SAI pump do not require this filter. Identify if your engine requires an SAI filter kit using the photos below and choose the correct option in the drop down box above when ordering your intake.
CUSTOM HEAT SHIELD
IE uses a two piece heat shield which performs and looks great. The heat shield is powder coated for a long lasting finish. 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.
CLASSY AND CLEAN APPEARANCE
Wrinkle black powdercoated inlet pipes and heat shields result in sleek and sporty appearance in any engine bay. As a final touch all IE heat shields are finished with a classy, laser etched, stainless steel IE logo badge.
Installation is quick and easy install with basic tools. The process should take around an hour for most enthusiasts. CLICK HERE to view and download the install guide.
