Product Details

Looking for the most sophisticated cold-air intake available for your MQB-platform 2.0 or 1.8 TSI EA888.3 car?

The R600 intake is our best selling system for this platform. Little wonder, as it combines OEM-standard design and quality with significant power gains on uprated cars.

OEM-standards of design, quality, materials and construction, hand-made in the UK. Fits like a factory part; lasts like a factory part.

Twin CFD-optimised front intakes extending across the front of the car help achieve lower intake temperatures and worthwhile power gains.

Enormous airbox volume houses the filter, complete with thoughtful details like connection to the original factory drain tube, and an SAI connection for US cars.

Your choice of filter unit, to suit different needs. Both are double the size of standard - rated right up to 600bhp and beyond.

Which filter is right for you?

If you want to go into depth about which one is better then check out Racinglines article R600 Filter Choice, which is best for you?. But if you just want the quick and easy version, the Trifoam filter needs regular attention, it should be cleaned and re-oiled every 10,000 miles and inspected every 6 months regardless of mileage. The cotton filter on the other hand is a more fit and forget solution, it should still be inspected every 10,000 miles and it doesn't require any cleaning for 40,000 miles.


Finish off your R600 with our Coolant Underhose. A really simple upgrade that removes that unsightly factory hose that rests on top of your beautiful intake, and reroutes it underneath instead.
