With 20 years of documented research and development in the forced induction field, AMS Performance has proven itself as the powerhouse in the automotive aftermarket. Our award winning performance systems are what all others are measured by.

In celebration of our 20th year here at AMS Performance, we are pleased to announce the 20th Anniversary Limited Edition version of the Golf R intake, in a special chopped carbon construction giving it an exclusive forged carbon look. These are expected to only be available for a limited time in 2021, so act fast! 

 

Our AMS Performance VW Golf R MKVII Carbon Fiber Cold Air Intake Upgrade was designed to draw a higher volume of cold air into the stock turbocharger. With this intake installed, bulky air filter boxes are replaced with our carbon fiber tubing and dry media filter. This eliminates clutter within the engine bay while drawing cold air from outside. The MK7 Golf R Cold Air Intake Kit is a vast improvement over the stock intake system and supports power levels up to 600HP!

Unmatched Construction

We selected a motorsports grade carbon fiber that is both hand-laid and high temperature resistant. Other options on the market use the typical gloss clear coated carbon fiber prone to discoloration and cracking. The AMS Carbon intake also eliminates the engine bay vents that are found on the factory intake. These vents allow the OEM car to pull in hot engine bay air for startup and fuel consumption requirements to the detriment of performance. By opening up the entire front grill and eliminating these warm air vents, 100% of the airflow is cold air being brought in from the front grille of the car.

The Pinnacle of Performance

The OEM manufacturer spends a lot of time reducing turbo noise at the expense of horsepower. By allowing the turbo to ingest all the cold air it needs, the AMS VW Golf R MKVII Carbon Fiber Cold Air Intake upgrade boosts power significantly. The use of carbon fiber composites allowed AMS’ Snailworks Engineers greater design freedom to enhance performance and aesthetics for your Golf R. The new large AMS front duct was specifically designed to distribute airflow evenly over the entire circumference of the intake filter. This means greater distribution of cold airflow across the filter resulting in lower pressure drops and a longer filter life between cleanings. In addition, it allows you to hear the turbo spool up, something you as an automotive enthusiast can truly appreciate.

The use of carbon fiber allowed a consistently tapered tube and large gradual bend radii, adapting the 3.5″ outlet filter to a 3″ inlet size with no sign of restriction. The tube then simply integrates to your factory turbo elbow with the provided 3″ to 2.75″ silicone coupler. This design allows for an easy upgrade in the near future to a larger turbo elbow or the AMS Performance Turbo Upgrade Kit with only a simple 3″ coupler. AMS designs all of our components with our customers’ end goal as our guide. This intake, the AMS Intercooler, and AMS downpipe are all part of a complete system that will work seamlessly with the AMS Turbo kit without having to buy parts twice.

The Difference Is In The Details

You can expect an easy install without cutting, trimming or taking off your grill. It can be installed with basic hand tools in minutes! Couple that with a purpose built, reusable synthetic high-flow dry media filter, you’ll no longer have to purchase cheap factory paper filters down the road. The “Dry Media” filter means just that, no more messy oiling of your filter. Just one more reason why our intake is the best option on the market. The AMS MK7 Golf R synthetic media filter was designed and manufactured specifically to fit this application. The filter is a washable, reusable synthetic media filter (no oil) that was developed for automotive use. The filter size and configuration was fine tuned to ensure that it will still provide all the necessary air for any MK7 Golf R, including upgraded turbo cars, without any substantial restriction or compromise in filter efficiency.

Notes

  • As these motorsports grade carbon fiber parts are hand laid, slight imperfections or weave pattern variances can be expected.
  • The filters use specially designed media that allows performance and efficiency to be restored to near new each time by simply using compressed air (30-40 psi) from the inside out, making frequent washing  unnecessary in order to restore filter performance. For a deep cleaning from extreme environments, a biodegradable cleaner such as Simple Green or other mild shop degreasers can be used. Simply place the filter in a solution or spray the cleaner on the filter. Allow the solution to loosen the particulate and then rinse thoroughly. Shake the filter or use compressed air from the inside outward to remove residual water and allow a full day or two to dry.
  • For vehicles equipped with Secondary Air Injection, an optional SAI filter kit is available separately here.
