Revo Open Cone Systems completely replace the OEM air intake for those who like to announce their vehicle is far from standard. Along with an aggressive intake sound, more air means access to more power throughout the rev-range.
REVO OPEN CONE AIR INTAKE SYSTEM
The factory 2.0 TFSI air-box works efficiently on a standard vehicle. As power is increased through tuning, however, it quickly becomes a major restriction, reducing the additional power offered. Ensuring the engine can get access to enough air is paramount when increasing power, an open cone air-intake system is the most effective way of achieving this, but not all products are made equal.
The pioneering design allows air to reach the turbo as quickly as possible whilst minimising turbulence and restriction. As a result, boost can be maintained for longer, giving you access to more power throughout the rev-range along with a more aggressive sound, and performance you can feel all the way to the redline.
- Increased Performance & Air Flow Efficiency
- Three Stage Foam Filter
- SCaled MAF Housing
- Single Pipe Design
The system is designed around a lightweight 90mm intake pipe, mandrel-bent to maintain the internal diameter in the corners and to create a one-piece solution. This offers superior flow and avoids the air turbulence and resistance experienced on intake kits with multiple sections, usually caused at each join resulting in very turbulent airflow, ultimately restricting performance.
Ensuring correct MAF (Mass Air Flow) sensor scaling is the real art when it comes to designing air intake systems if incorrect the intake system can actually reduce power and cause major fuelling issues. The kit integrates the stock MAF sensor in a specifically designed housing on the one-piece pipe to ensure correct scaling during fitment.
THREE LAYER FOAM FILTER
An intake system is only as good as the filter. This kit comes complete with a tried and tested Revo three-layer foam filter with an impressive 857cm² surface area, supported by galvanised, epoxy-coated mesh to ensure the filter cannot collapse. The filter has a large 180mm external diameter body and a smooth radius aluminium bell mouth, specifically designed for optimum airflow from the filter to pipe-work.
Revo foam filters work by trapping dirt particles within each of the oiled foam layers, allowing air to negotiate its way through the filter, reducing restriction and offering much longer service intervals. We tested the filter at a leading motor testing centre ‘Mira’ on industry recognised dust load test. On a full dust load test, the foam filter was found to still be 99.1% efficient, filtering down to 5 microns while offering the least amount of restriction over similar products.
The intake system features a laser-cut aluminium heat shield that ensures the filter is well insulated from ambient under-bonnet temperatures. The shielding is designed to utilise the ducting in the factory grill to maximise airflow and prevent heat-soak.
The silicone hoses included in the kit are manufactured using high-quality automotive-grade silicone, engineered to combine the system using stepped necks to offer a smooth transition of air to avoid turbulence. The turbo inlet hose has also been specifically designed to fit both K03 and K04 turbo powered cars.
