The MQB AirGate™ Carbon Intake:

Options and adjustability with AirGate™.

Lid on or lid off, the AirGate™ Carbon Intake can evolve on a whim with a few turns of three easily-accessible hex screws. Want to hear more turbo inductions sounds from within the cabin? Go topless. Prefer to keep it stealthy? Simply bolt the AirGate™ lid in place.

Constructed of genuine 2x2 carbon fiber, the AWE MQB AirGate™ Carbon Intake maintains appropriate water draining provisions while utilizing factory mounting points, integrating with the factory ram air inlet seamlessly.













The S-FLO Filter:

The included AWE S-FLO Filter is designed to ensure easy service and to maximize airflow by sitting in the direct path of ram air from the front inlet. This increased air flow unlocked maximum gains of 16 hp and 9 ft-lbs of torque out of the GTI, and 9 hp and 9 ft-lbs of torque out of the Golf R, both paired with stage 2 software.



Upgrade options:

The AirGate™ Carbon Intake can be purchased with or without the AirGate Lid. If you want to add the lid later, no problem.

Important fitment notes:

Some vehicles require a breather filter. Find out if you do by clicking here.

Please note, AWE AirGate™ Carbon Intakes are for racing use only.

Beautiful intake! So, according to the dyno, the lid on proved the most power gains.. I suppose this is due to a more direct and uninterrupted airflow to the filter?

Is there any reason why this new intake doesn't also replace the stock intake pipe (just the box/filter)?

There are quite a few companies that sell just the box section without the intake pipe. The Racingline R600 and IE carbon intake for MK7 are two notable examples
