Carbonio’s latest carbon fiber intake for the 2.5L engine is a cold air intake design that
pulls cold air from outside the engine bay. Building from years of experience on and off
the race track, Carbonio’s and APR’s engineering teams have spent countless hours
developing a carbon fiber design that can be recreated affordably for the street
performance enthusiast.

Constructed of aerospace grade carbon fiber and designed to remove intake restriction,
APR’s Carbonio intake system provides smoother transitional airflow, increased air velocity,
superior insulation of the incoming air to reduce intake air temperatures and a larger
volume of available air to aid throttle response. The MK6’s complex engine bay leaves little
room for traditional intake design, however since the Carbonio intake is made from Carbon
Fiber, it’s able to be molded into any shape necessary to clear components blocking it’s way.
