Volkswagen MK8 Golf R Intakes
Replacing the factory intake and airbox with the COBB Carbon Fiber Redline Intake System will greatly reduce pre-turbo restrictions. When a restriction is removed, it allows the engine to be more efficient while also enabling it to make more overall power! The higher flowing intake also makes turbo and bypass valve noises more audible.
