We are pleased to announce our latest product from our motorsport development on the Golf 7 and MQB platform cars – the CUP EDITION INTAKE SYSTEM. We have developed this for our Golf 7 Volkswagen Racing Cup car programme – so branded ‘Cup Edition’, and are now offering it for race or as a fast-road upgrade. This new Cup Edition intake replaces the entire restrictive standard air box on the factory Golf 7 GTI and Golf 7 R, plus other MQB cars using the 2.0 TSI EA888 engine, such as Audi S3 and Leon Cupra 280. Cold air is drawn through the standard front panel aperture into the filter chamber area. Intake air temperature is protected from the heat of the engine bay with a fully-formed CAD-designed aluminium heat shield which seals against the underside of the bonnet/hood and extends right underneath the filter chamber area. The Cup Edition Intake System comes with an oversized domed High-Flow TriFoam™ air filter designed to provide increased surface area and dust capacity. This extra surface area provides even more airflow with lower restriction, to ensure that the largest volumes of the coolest possible air is available to the engine at all times. This maximises efficiency and improves drivability and torque throughout the rev range – turbocharger spool dropped nearly 500 RPMs, reducing turbo lag and creating faster turbo response. All parts have been developed exclusively for Golf 7/MQB – meaning that fitting is very straightforward, and the original mounting points are retained. This is the attention to detail that makes the VWR parts different – careful engineering for a perfect fit and function The Cup Edition intake integrates seamlessly with the factory management system to provide the perfect basis for modifying the car – or as an essential part of higher-level tuning along with remapping or exhaust upgrades.
