The APR Open PEX Intake System is Here!

http://goapr.io/mqbpex

The APR Open PEX Intake System is the best dollar-per-horsepower intake system for the 1.8T/2.0T Engine! We’ve maximized performance and sound dramatically by reducing pressure drop and increasing airflow. This translates to more horsepower and torque, and less physical strain on the turbocharger. The system looks great, sounds amazing, and produces more horsepower and torque you can feel.



Quick Info

  • More horsepower with gains up to +12 AWHP over stock
  • More torque with gains of up to +13 AWFT-LBS over stock
  • Greatly outflows the full factory frontal airbox by 60% at 833 CFM vs 521 CFM
  • High heat deflection PEX construction
  • Massive 7” washable and reusable cotton filter with a frontal inlet and 4” rear outlet
  • Creates an intoxicating intake sound in the engine bay
  • Improves throttle response
  • Lessens pressure drop
  • Lessens strain on the turbocharger
  • Lessens heat retention compared to other materials, such as metal
  • Compatible with APR and factory rear intake tubes and turbo inlet pipes
  • Easily installs in minutes

Our Open PEX Intake System does away with the closed airbox design and uses a massive 7” washable and reusable cotton filter with a frontal inlet and 4” rear outlet. This was necessary to limit pressure drop across the factory system and maximize airflow, while allowing you to fully hear the engine breathe! The massive filter provides excellent filtration. By oversizing the filter, we’re able to limit pressure drop without sacrificing filtration. This is made possible through the use of greatly increased filter surface area. The PEX material give the intake an Oem feel and it allows us to make a complex and organic heat shield shape that keeps hot air pushed through the frontal radiator away from the intake tract. Lastly, PEX retains heat less than other materials, such as metal, making it ideal for performance.

Overview, Sound, and Install Video

Flow Bench



The factory intake system simply can’t match the performance of our intake system. The full factory frontal airbox only flows 521 CFM at 28” of H2O. We improved this by 60% with our open airbox, which flows 833 CFM by comparison! However, it’s important to always look at the intake system as a whole as flow numbers alone don’t always speak to the broader picture. The factory turbocharger can only flow just under 400 CFM through the factory opening, and any intake system will lessen maximum flow. The goal is to minimize all restrictions before the turbocharger as much as possible to maximize performance. The full factory system brings this down to 275 CFM, or 31% less. The full APR System (Open airbox, rear pipe, and turbo inlet pipe), bring this down to 345 CFM, which is only 13% less, or a 25% improvement over stock! This directly translates to more power you can feel. Our full bolt on APR Tuned S3 saw max gains of 12 AWHP and 13 AWFT-LBS of torque using the full intake system compared to stock! These are solid gains that make a noticeable difference in performance!

took the plunge for more woosh noises. It looks even better in person! Installing tomorrow.

@Arin@APR installed mine and the only feedback I have is that you do have to undo one of the clips for the front battery cord to push that out of the way. The intake would not seat into the oem locations until I did that. Otherwise, everything else went smoothly, and it sounds great!

Thank you for the feedback. I think this is covered in steps 5 and 6:

5 - Cut and remove the two cable ties holding the battery cable to the bottom of the battery box. Remove the cable tie mounts from the batter box mounting points.
6 - Raise the harness fro the batter cable approximately 3 inches. With the supplied cable tie, reattach the battery cable to the previously used lower mount point. This will allow the battery cable to sit closer to the battery and out of the way of the APR intake.

Awesome product and probably what most people need. However, your marketing is very misleading and the gains are going to come from a *full* system.

Your battery cable looks closer than others I've seen. Is it an H6/Group 48 battery? Auto start/stop?

Yeah you can see the start stop voltage connection in those pics on his battery, that’s the big battery

Got it, thanks. I put a Group 48 AGM in my 2015 non-start stop which made it impossible to install the CTS intake, so this is an attractive option for some noise.
