    GROUP BUY CTS Turbo Cold Air Intake

    Evening all. I have not long been given dealership status with CTS Turbo and they have just manufactured a new intake for the 2.0TFSi. Very similar to afew makes kicking about but its the gains that are quite impressive. I was thinking of getting one for the S3 and then do a group buy.........PM me if interested as its cheap with my discount.

    CTS Turbo intake systems utilize the OEM air scoop to seamlessly force air into a sealed airbox. This allows for cool air to flow through our high flow cone air filter, which utilizes an inverted cone design for maximum engine breathing. All of the components included in the CTS air intake system work flawlessly together to provide increased horsepower and torque throughout the entire power band and an aggressive race inspired sound.

    Mandrel bent aluminum piping with black powder coating
    CNC machined MAF flange and DV bung
    Reusable air filter with inverted cone design
    4 Ply silicon connectors with stainless steel clamps
    Sealed air box with rubberized trim
    Bracketry to prevent rattling under engine torquing
    Gains ranging from 9-15HP

    Does the piping have some heat resistant coating on, as its obviously coated, but not sure if that's just for aesthetic reasons

    Right then just been in conference with CTS Turbo and if I can get an order of 6 intake kits total price including shipping etc etc etc will be £250. I spoke to the owner who has one fitted to his Golf R and he thinks it sounds amazing and gives very good gains over stock intake. If you want one then PM me and I shall give you payment methods.......paypal gift, card payment, cash are all good for me.

    I wonder if you could layer the coatings, to make it even more heat resistant.

    Yes the price is inclusive of delivery and yes the heatshiled is also available at an extra £25 and its brushed aluminium. I've had lots of comments about that heatshield so CTS have them in stock so will make it part of the kit so if you want one then let me know but there there is a slight additional charge. I also asked how loud it was and they commented that it was one of the quietest intakes compared to others on the market.......there is noise but nothing too distracting. Hope all this helps.

    Why do some people have to make blatantly stupid comments on sponsors group buys.......I don't care if its a copy.......they are all based on the same principle are they not and at the price I have arranged you cant grumble really. With 15 posts to your tally I would shuffle off and look up the word 'Etiquette' in the dictionary. If members want to buy it, then its their prerogative is it not????

    Kimhemm here is the answer to your question - "The revised CTS Turbo intakes now have a DV bung in the same position as the stock for Golf R, S3, ED30 etc so there are absolutely no fitment issues for RHD applications. Prior to these we had an adapter, which are no longer required due to the redesign and release of the CTS-IT-105. These new intakes make for a much cleaner and easier install"

    Hope this is what you were after.

    So, does it come with a pipe near the turbo to connected to the DV on K04 cars as I don't understand the DV bung comment above?

    Anyone have any before / after dyno runs?

    Looks like a clean and simple solution IMO.

    The initial problem with the DV bung was that the elbow was out of position on the pipework for R/H drive cars. This issue was rectified when it was raised and no other tech issues have been raised since the new modified intakes have been introduced.

    What is the internal diameter of the tubing? Was about to pull the trigger on the AMD CAI with heat shield, but this is a fair bit cheaper. Any comparison been done on relative performance to other kits available?

    Well this and the turbo heatshield are £275 so a good saving to be had. I was supposed to be fitting mine yesterday on the S3 but Mrs B. took it to work as I had promised to detail her car so Friday I will be fitting the intake and heatshield so I shall pop up results.

    Here are some measuremments for you Elrao.

    1. Max internal diameter of cone filter = 10cms
    2. Length of filter = 16cms
    3. Internal diameter of piping = 7cms at inlet & outlet and constant through the length of intake piping.

    Hope this is what you were after

    Well all I can say is...........brilliant product. Fitted my intake the other day and what a difference its made to the driveability of the S3. I also fitted the PCV revamp kit so the car is running real sweet.

    Review by an ASN member who bought one:-

    "Intake came yesterday and got set about it right away. Was a breeze to fit. Instantly, the sound is fantastic and twinned with the Milltek system I have it sounds lovely. Able to hear the turbo more and it gives a nice woosh when you let off the power. Love it. Feeling some low and mid range differences. A bit more responsive from the get up and go and seems to pull more confidently at mid revs. The cars going in to get the runner flap delete kit at the end of the month so will get the map altered to suit. Will let you know what difference in power it made over the panel filter. But anyway, thanks.. definetely happy with it"

    I think the overall difference for me just by looking at the product on facebook, is the actual design of the air feed, well thought out & simplistic in nature, how intakes should be designed imho, afterall its the air they need to be so effective.

    Thats no bad mate. In fact you can make up that £75 with a variety of detailing goodies IF you have any left mate as I didnt get round to having a look in the garage. Its just an idea to help you out.
