First things first, replacing your air intake with a carbon cold air intake is one of the best adjustments you can do. The perfect place to gain some extra hp and make your 7 GTI sound out-of-this-world is by starting with your air intake. Why? Well, they’re one of the least expensive methods to increase your horsepower and easy to assemble.
A cold air intake offers you the complete package of an air filter, hose clamps, bolts and screws and an airbox. The airbox makes sure that the air directly enters your filter through a metal inlet pipe. The metal inlet pipe ensures the filter of air that is as cold as possible. The key to its’ superpowers is in the cool air: the oxygen molecules are denser for cool air than for warmer air. The density of the oxygen leads to a more powerful combustion when mixed with fuel. Besides, the more air enters, the more fuel can be added. Wondering why we prefer cold air over an open air filter? Read our blog here.
