IE MQB 2.0T/1.8T Gen 3 Cold Air Intake | VW MK7 GTI, Golf R, Golf, & Audi 8V A3, S3 - IEINCI11

Upgrade your intake and bring a classy and stylized look to your engine bay with the optional carbon fiber lid upgrade. The carbon shape is specially designed to fit your IE intake and conform to the factory engine bay for a 100% perfect fit and finish. A hidden series of install holes under the trim seal on your intake allows for an easy install of our popular carbon fiber lid.



The majority of our intake is an aluminum alloy heat shield that spans the entire length of the front clip. This feature takes advantage of outside high-pressure air getting shoved through the front grill and channels this fresh air directly to the integrated velocity stack and air filter while effectively sealing off hot engine bay air.


Upgrade your intake with our optional cast turbo inlet for the most performance available from an intake system. This removes the significant airflow restriction from the small plastic stock inlet and maintains the largest size possible from the intake to the turbocharger. This combination increases flow up to 66.94% over the stock intake and turbo inlet!

Turbo inlet pipe is an optional upgrade and can be purchased with your intake or added at a later date.



We know a fast car is fun to drive, but a good-sounding one puts a smile on your face. The high-velocity bellmouth and free flow design produce a unique and exciting effect of amplifying engine notes and turbo sounds that create an addicting symphony every time you throttle down.


The built-in velocity stack is a true motorsport design feature used in professional motorsport racing. The bellmouth shape is incredibly efficient at channeling the mass amounts of airflow coming through the 5" air filter's surface area and smoothly transferring it down to the intake piping with very low amounts of drag or power-robbing turbulence.


Drive with confidence while keeping your engine safe on dirt roads, sandy areas, or anywhere your intake is exposed to nasty contaminants. Using a 3-step approach to combat harsh climates the filter has been increased to 8 pleats, treated with penetrating filter oil, and covered with a pre-filter sock. This offers superior filtration and peace of mind for your intake system when traveling in questionable conditions.

IE Harsh Climate Filter Kit is an optional upgrade and sold separately.


Have plans for a bigger turbo? Your IE intake is designed for significant power in mind. Everything from the heatshield size to the surface area of the filter is optimized to support larger turbos and shaped without any hard bends common on competitor intakes to ensure uninterrupted airflow for any power goal.



IE engineers utilize advanced 3D scanners and specialized software to create a digital model of the engine bay. This digital environment ensures the intake clears and fits exactly like a factory-installed unit. Rapid printed prototyping is used to ensure real-world fitment and clearances before moving onto production. The result is an intake that provides a hassle-free install with angles and curves that not only look at home in your engine bay but elevates the style altogether.


Everything needed to install your new IE intake is included without having to make trips to the hardware store. Our included stealth coolant hides under the intake and out of view for a cleaner look and protects the coolant line from interfering or rubbing on anything that may lead to future coolant leaks. This intake is a direct fit for vehicles with and without secondary air injection, including all necessary hardware to install without purchasing additional kits or equipment.


The installation process is quick and straightforward using basic hand tools. The entire intake system utilizes factory-style mounts that ensure a perfect and hassle-free fit.

  • How do I know if a part will fit my car?

    We update our catalog daily to provide the most accurate fitment information possible. When shopping for parts, please use the “select your vehicle” car selector on the home page. Once you've selected your car, you can filter parts specific to it.

    Additionally, on each product page, we have a tab for fitment information. By clicking on "Fitment", you can scroll and verify the part you are about to add to your cart indeed fits.

    Furthermore, if you have a vehicle added to our vehicle selector and you are viewing a product page, you'll see fitment information below the "add to cart" button. If an item fits your car it will display "This Part Fits Your: Selected Vehicule". If an item does not fit your vehicle a message will display "This Part Does Not Fit".

  • What is a core charge?

    A “Core Charge” is similar to the deposit you might pay for a can or bottle of soda. In many states, to promote recycling, you are charged a deposit when you purchase a can of soda and you receive your deposit back when you return the empty can. Many automotive parts have Core Charges that work the same way as a soda can deposit. The most common car parts that include a core charge are alternators, calipers, steering racks, and fuel injectors.

  • What is MAP pricing? Why can't I get a discount on a MAP item?

    "MAP" pricing, or Minimum Advertised Pricing, means that the vendor set a minimum retail price that we're not allowed to violate. MAP items cannot be discounted because the decrease in price would violate that threshold.
