VW Golf R/MK5 FSI WINtake Air Intake System
The WINtake was produced initially for the B6 Passat with the Tiptronic transmission due to the remote transmission cooler positioned in front of the battery that prevented fitment of the second filter canister of the TWINtake kit. This single canister fitment, however, will obviously suit all other transverse FSI and TSI applications as well, and serves as a simpler entry level option positioned below the TWINtake kit, that still provides substantial improvement to the vehicles performance.
The kit comprises full replacement intake piping made from fully mandrel bent aluminium which is powder coated black. We use only 70mm diameter tubing which will not cause any issues with the MAF sensor readings. The filter is a non-oiled cotton gauze high flow cone filter housed in a genuine carbon fiber enclosed canister that connects directly to the OEM intake pickup at the front of the vehicle with an application specific inlet scoop. Everything is connected via high quality silicone couplers. The system creates a true ram air effect, and the WINtake will only see airflow from outside the vehicle; absolutely no hot air from within the engine bay will be drawn in by the system.
We have dyno tested the single canister WINtake kit, and have seen gains as high as 10 peak wheel horsepower improvement over the stock airbox and filter on Stage 2 tuned vehicles. This indicates that the OEM intake system, while adequate for a stock tuned application, does become a bottleneck at higher levels of tune and higher boost levels that demand more airflow.
