Racingline Performance Intake System – Polo GTI (6R/6C) 1.8TSI
The VWR Racingline Performance Intake, Made by Racingline Performance, is best known for delivering the Volkswagen Racing motorsport program since 1997, out of which was born the increasingly popular Motorsport & Performance Parts range, with all Race parts heavily Race designed, developed & tested, treat your pride and joy to the best there is with Racingline Performance Parts.
One of our most popular products is the VWR Cold-Air Intake System kit, enabling cold, dense air from outside the engine bay to reach the fuel metering unit more efficiently for the 1.8 ‘TFSI’ engine in Polo GTI 6R/6C models (although please note that these are only for models fitted with the battery mounted in the rear, not engine bay).
Our High-Flow TriFoam™ triple-layer construction is simply the best filtration material on the market and is the key to the power gains achieved. Each filter is handmade in the UK. Some people forget that it’s what’s inside an intake system that really matters.
Developed for use in our Volkswagen Racing cars, the system delivers really impressive airflow gains. By reducing the turbo spool by up to up to 500rpm in some cases through the enhanced efficiency of the system, lightning-fast turbo response is guaranteed.
VWR COLD AIR INTAKE SYSTEM 1.8 TFSI KEY TECH SPECS
Trifoam® filter construction, a triple-layer laminate of open-cell polyurethane foam, gives an exceptionally high level of filtration – the very same technology as Formula One engines use.
All parts have been developed exclusively for Polo 6R/6C platform 1.8 TFSI engines – meaning that fitting is straightforward, and the original mounting points are retained.
Efficient filtration and huge filter surface area mean power and torque gains support higher power remaps, and an economic improvement.
Hand-built in the UK, using the highest quality materials and construction.
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.
You’ll hear the rich induction noise from this race-bred intake as soon as you accelerate hard. However, as a fully enclosed intake, volume levels are well-contained.
