Product Summary


The ram air design and massive 5-inch filter inlet help deliver the most HP possible from an intake system.

  • Expect peak gains of 10+ HP on stock vehicles
  • Gains exceed 10 HP on tuned and big turbo vehicles  



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 tab for a complete list of confirmed vehicles by year. 



  • IE custom sized MAF tubing
  • IE 3 inch diameter powder coated inlet pipe
  • IE heat shield & massive air filter
  • All necessary hardware (clamps, nuts, bolts, etc)



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.



IE engineers set out to develop an MK5 2.0T Cold Air Intake that looks great and performs even better. The latest in computer design and 3D scanning technology were employed during the development process for a perfect fit and maximum performance. This is not your run of the mill "filter on a stick" cold air intake. 


Delivering cold air to your engine is a must for making power. The velocity stack efficiently channels air as quickly as possible into the intake system. The velocity also functions as a solid mount for the air filter which means no intake pipes rattling on heat shields.



This Intake delivers an impressive flow increase to feed your turbo. More cold air flow means more power, especially during the hot summer months. Ditch your stock restrictive airbox for the IE intake System.



IE uses a two-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.


The filter included in this kit is the biggest available on the market! It works efficiently to feed your turbo with the cold air it needs. It also keeps the air going into the turbocharger clean and debris free ensuring long life.



This Intake fits 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 rubber mounts allow for engine movement which keeps intake components from getting damaged.


Wrinkle black powder coated inlet pipes and heat shields result in a 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.

Couldn’t be more pleased. The quality of the materials and packaging was top notch. Performance on the other hand was unbelievable. I expected results but the results I received made me question if the factory intake was broken. The improvement has left one very pleased customer. The car came alive and the sounds it emanates deepens the enjoyment of driving.

Best thing since sliced bread
This intake was an easy install, with all of the parts provided in the package, less a clamp or two. After having installed this intake, I have rekindled my love for my car. It's like the first day I got it. The throttle response is a big improvement and the sounds it lets your car make are just smile-inducing. Highly recommended for anyone with a Golf R.
