The ECS MK7/8V 1.8T/2.0T Kohlefaser Luft-Technik Intake System

The ECS Tuning MK7/8V Kohlefaser Luft-Technik (Carbon Fiber Air Technology) Induction System, is a premium in-house designed engine aspiration product that not only delivers remarkable power gains, but also blends automotive engineering into an artistic canvas of under-hood beauty. Our system is constructed of premium materials and utilizes the most advanced development methods available to date. Our system is engineered to fit exactly like OEM with simple hand tools and includes all new installation hardware.

Our intake has been dyno tested on the ECS Shop MK7 GTI with COBB Stage 1+ 93 Octane Software, ECS Turbo Outlet and Throttle Body Charge Pipe Kit and Milltek 3.0″  Turbo Back Exhaust System. The additional power numbers our intake generated over stock are below.

  • Maximum Gains: +12.0 Wheel Horsepower @ 6,000 RPM and +9.0 Ft/lbs of Wheel Torque @ 5,200 RPM
  • Peak Gains: +8.0 Wheel Horsepower @ 5,300 RPM and +6.0 Ft/lbs Wheel Torque @ 2,800 RPM
  • Largest peak HP and Torque gains are between 4,500 and 6,800 RPM for consistent mid to top-range boost in power!
  • Turbocharger efficiency is also improved by reducing restriction ahead of the compressor, resulting in less boost pressure needed to produce more power. At 6,000 RPM the ECS Kohlefaser Luft-Technik Intake made +12.0 WHP over the stock intake system with 1.8psi lower boost pressure.

Inlet air is filtered by our custom-spec’d high flow, reusable cotton gauze air filter element. Featuring a 3.0″ bell-mouth inlet that smooths incoming air, a conical shape that maximizes filtration surface area and an 8-ply cotton gauze construction to provide the best balance between airflow and filtration efficiency.

To further add to the beauty and to optimize fitment under the hood we’ve gone a step further and INCLUDED our ECS MQB Gen3 Silicone Coolant Hose Reroute Kit. This coolant hose connects the upper radiator hose bypass fitting to the expansion tank metal return line. Rather than the OE hose that routes topside of the carbon fiber lid assembly, our hose takes the less obtrusive path, going underneath the ECS heat shield base for a stealthy appearance. This coolant hose is secured with the pre-installed hose support clip underneath the heat shield base. This allowed for a cleaner design and more space available for the massive heat shield assembly.

Throughout years of in-house development, performance-driven design changes and strict product testing, our design has resulted in a highly effective air induction system. Our induction system not only looks good but is real world tested with performance that is second to none. If you expect nothing but the best, like we do, this is the only system for you!
