We were uncompromising in our quest to build the ultimate cold-air intake. (The one we wanted for our own cars.) Here’s why you’ll love it too:
The ram air design and massive 5-inch filter inlet help deliver the most power possible from an intake system. This Intake delivers an impressive 17.3% 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.
Installation is quick and easy to install with basic tools. The process should take under an hour for most enthusiasts.
At the inception of the project, our engineers set out to make the MK7 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. The final product resulted in the greatest performing and best looking open filter intake available.
HIGH-FLOW VELOCITY STACK
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.
CUSTOM HEAT SHIELD
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.
This Intake fits MK7 GTI and MK7 Golf R 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.
CLASSY AND CLEAN APPEARANCE
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.
STEALTH COOLANT LINE
Included in every kit is the IE stealth coolant line. This coolant line neatly tucks the coolant line under the heat shield rather than it going over it. Another problem avoided with the IE stealth coolant line is it avoids any interference or rubbing on the heat shield which can lead to damaged and leaky hoses.

Your MK7 2.0T or 1.8T engine may have come factory equipped with a secondary air injection (SAI) pump. Engines with SAI require an IE SAI Filter Adapter Kit for this SAI line when installing an aftermarket intake. Engines not equipped with this SAI pump do not require this filter kit. Identify if your engine requires an SAI filter kit using the photos below and add it to your cart above if needed when ordering your intake. Download SAI Filter kit install guide here.
