The 'Cup Edition' Intake for 2.0T MQB EA888 Gen3 cars such as Golf 7 GTI, GTD and R is a complete open cold air intake system, using a high flow and reusable lifetime triple-layer Trifoam® giant domed filter.
Racingline has developed this open intake system for our Golf 7 Volkswagen Racing Cup car programme - so branded 'Cup Edition', and are now offering it for either race use or as a fast-road upgrade as an alternative to our popular R600 fully-enclosed intake, for those who prefer the induction noise and appearance of an open system.
Cold air is drawn through the standard front panel aperture into the filter chamber area. Intake air temperature is protected from the heat of the engine bay with a fully-formed CAD-designed aluminium heat shield which seals against the underside of the bonnet/hood and extends right underneath the filter chamber area.
KEY TECH SPECS
Trifoam® filter construction, triple-layer laminate of open-cell polyurethane foam, which gives an exceptionally high level of filtration – the very same technology as Formula One engines use.
All parts have been developed exclusively for Golf 7/MQB - meaning that fitting is straightforward, and the original mounting points are retained.
Hand-built in the UK, using the highest quality materials and construction.
Efficient filtration and huge filter surface area means that power and torque gains support higher power remaps, and even an economy improvement
LAST A LIFETIME
This is a 'lifetime' filter, so never needs replacement in normal service. Cleaning is only required every 20,000 miles (30,000km) in normal usage.
