APR presents the TT/TTS Carbon Fiber Intake System!

The APR Carbon Fiber Intake System is an attractive high performance upgrade for the latest 1.8T and 2.0T engines as found in various MQB platform vehicles.
The factory intake design has the foundation for excellent performance, but much of this is sacrificed in an effort to meet other design requirements. With requirements set forth for only supporting factory power output levels, low engine sound levels and long service intervals, there is plenty of room for improvement.
The APR Carbon Fiber Intake System increases performance primarily by improving mass airflow through the system while still proving adequate filtration. Expect greater horsepower and torque through the power band with a more direct and responsive feel upon pressing the throttle. Sounds from the engine and turbocharger are enhanced and some may even experience better fuel economy depending on driving style.
Carbon Fiber Intake System for VW/Audi’s latest lineup of 1.8T/2.0T vehicles is now available for the Audi TT & TTS with our new TT Adapter Bracket.

Audi RS6 C7 4.0 TFSI biturbo quattro completed

Audi’s flagship powerhouse estate – with its whopping 560PS and 700Nm of torque – has been through Milltek Sport’s development centre to receive a power hike, a sharper throttle response and, a reworking of the sound that’s produced by that glorious 4.0 biturbo engine.

Milltek’s technicians looked at how to improve on the OEM exhaust system, which features a number of restrictions in both gas flow rate and sound deadening, and will work their usual magic on it to produce a range of exhaust solutions which deliver more driver-engagement and add to the thrill of driving one of the most powerful cars on the road. As with all Milltek systems, the job is not complete until the system meets these objectives and yet remains completely in tune with how the car is being driven.

 

Milltek Sport understands that their customers want to release an aggressive roar when the throttle is buried into the carpet but not when popping to the shops with the family in tow.

 

Milltek have released a full turbo-back system with hi-flow sports cats as well as cat-back options which will include an ‘E-Marked’ system for sale into mainland Europe.
