With extensive background in engineering the finest in Performance Software, Unitronic developed an intake system that maximizes performance of vehicles equipped with the 1.8/2.0 TSI Gen3 (MQB) engines.

This translates into a complete Cold Air Intake System that is sure to perform to the maximum, providing increased power, air velocity, and throttle response, while also decreasing air intake temperatures and turbo lag. Unitronic’s Carbon Fiber Air Duct also helps to increase power and air flow by taking advantage of both air inlets available in the OEM grill.

In addition, Unitronic’s Cold Air Intake will enhance the sound of your turbocharger and diverter valve.
