• APR releases 1.8T/2.0T EA888 inlet pipe reducing pre-turbo restriction for IHI IS12, IS20 or IS38 turbochargers

      Here is a simple and cost effective upgrade to improve efficiency in your EA888 1.8T or 2.0T engine. APR's turbocharger inlet pipe is compatible with IHI IS12, IS30, or IS38 turbos and increases flow to 441 cfm from 379 cfm.

      The factory piece will limit airflow compared to the APR pipe and this becomes more evident in tuned examples.

      It fits basically everything:

      Audi - A3 / S3 - MK3 (Typ 8V) - 1.8T / 2.0T
      Audi - Q2 - (Typ 5Q) - 1.8T / 2.0T
      Audi - TT / TT S - MK3 (Typ 8S) - 1.8T / 2.0T
      Seat - Leon / Cupra - MK3 (Typ 5F) - 1.8T / 2.0T
      Seat - Alhambra - (Typ 7N05) - 1.8T / 2.0T
      Seat - Ateca - (Typ 575) - 1.8T / 2.0T
      Skoda - Kodiaq - (Typ 565) - 1.8T / 2.0T
      Skoda - Octavia / VRS - MK3 (Typ 5E) - 1.8T / 2.0T
      Skoda - Superb - B8 (Typ 3V) - 1.8T / 2.0T
      Volkswagen - Arteon - (Typ 3G8) - 1.8T / 2.0T
      Volkswagen - Atlas / Teramont - (Typ 3CN) - 1.8T / 2.0T
      Volkswagen - Golf / Alltrack / GTI / Clubsport Golf R / etc - (Typ 5G) - 1.8T / 2.0T
      Volkswagen - Passat - B8 (Typ 3G) - 1.8T / 2.0T
      Volkswagen - Sharan - (Typ 7N05) - 1.8T / 2.0T
      Volkswagen - Tiguan - MK2 (Typ 5NA) - 1.8T / 2.0T
      Volkswagen - Touran - (Typ 1T06) - 1.8T / 2.0T

      For $149 this is a no-brainer:

      The APR Turbo Inlet Pipe is an easy-to-install bolt-on upgrade that eliminates a restriction before the turbocharger. Unlike fabricated units on the market today, ours is cast from aluminum, allowing for an organically shaped inlet that transitions gradually over a large distance. Such a design promotes better flow rather than abruptly reducing at the turbochargerís inlet like other units. Itís larger than stock throughout, removes a large internal restriction at the PCV inlet, and outflows the factory unit allowing the turbocharger to operate more efficiently. We fully assemble each unit with a billet securing arm, billet PCV bung and new o-ring. The inlet and outlet are CNC-machined to control tolerances and ensure snug and secure connections. This upgrade is recommending at all stages utilizing an IHI IS12, IS20 or IS38 turbocharger!
