Sleeper Status

Posted on November 24, 2015 – 12:07 pm

Someone just dropped some serious cash to have us upgrade the performance characteristics of their 2013 DSG-equipped VW (Mk6) GTI.  The pile of parts contribute to a 133 HP / 143 TQ gain over stock and include an APR K04 turbo kit, APR cast down-pipe, Carbonio carbon fiber intake, APR intercooler, Neuspeed Hi-Flo turbo discharge pipe, Neuspeed Hi-Flo air charge pipe, and Stern rear subframe brace to compliment a previously installed set of H&R ultralow coilovers.

… But even with the hood up you’d be hard pressed to find any of these upgrades, a total sleeper!

APR Releases VW (Mk6) Jetta 2.0L 8v Carbonio Intake

Posted on November 14, 2012 – 11:00 am

APR is pleased to present the Carbonio Carbon Fiber Intake System for the MK6 Jetta 2.0L 8v engine! The Carbonio Intake System is a ram air design that completely separates the intake filter from the engine bay and results in a peak gain of 7 horsepower! Building from years of experience on and off the race track, Carbonio’s and APR’s engineering teams have spent countless hours developing a true cold air and ram air carbon fiber design that can be recreated affordably for the street performance enthusiast.

For many years professional motorsport organizations have suffered great expense to properly tune the air intake delivery system for turbocharged engines for use in endurance and sprint races where every last horsepower and pound feet of torque can make the difference in position when crossing the finish line. Historically these designs have proven to be the most efficient and powerful although the most expensive to produce.

Aftermarket performance companies have attempted to capitalize on these designs however the cost restraints have typically resulted in compromise and deviation from the true engineering principles associated with motorsport accomplishment. Don’t be fooled by catch phrases and tag lines alluding to a new intake technology or special design characteristic. You won’t see any of these gimmicks installed on race cars at the Nurburgring.

Carbonio and APR have gone even further to maintain all oem specifications necessary to integrate cohesively with an otherwise stock engine to avoid raising eyebrows at the dealership. Flexibility was another characteristic of Carbonio’s and APR’s design whereas the new intake is also complementary to other performance modifications.

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.

 

This item will be added to the VW (Mk6) Jetta online catalog shortly.

APR Presents: VW MK6 2.5L Carbonio Intake System!

Posted on April 27, 2011 – 7:58 am

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

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.

APR Carbonio Intake System Benefits:

  • Improved Throttle Response
  • Improved Torque at all RPM’s
  • Improved Horsepower at All RPM’s
  • Horsepower Represents a 7% Increase Over Stock in the “Area Under the Curve”
