This cold air intake kit is designed as a direct bolt-on kit for many Volkswagen FSI 2.0T engines such as the MK6 Golf R, MK5 GTI/Jetta/GLI and Audi 8P A3 engines. Check the fitment section for a complete list of confirmed vehicles by year.
Your MK6 Golf R or MK5 FSI ECU uses a MAF (mass air flow) sensor to calculate how much fuel is needed when idling or driving. When the diameter of the inlet pipe or MAF sensor location is altered it will lead to check engine lights (CEL) or a poorly running vehicle. If you have a CEL related to the MAF sensor after installing a new tune or intake, this could potentially be the cause.
IE has completely eliminated this issue by engineering the perfect MAF sensor placement and IE custom tube diameter. Unlike other 3-inch inlet pipe intakes available, the IE custom tube diameter ensures that the MAF sensor functions as the factory intended. This equates to the car running at its full potential and making the most power possible.
The ram air design and massive 5-inch filter inlet help deliver the most HP possible from an intake system.
