ECS Tuning Luft-Technik Intake System - Without Heat Shield (VW MK7 GTI/R | Audi 8V )

The ECS Tuning MK7/8v Luft-Technik (Air Technology) Induction System, is a premium in-house designed engine aspiration product that not only delivers remarkable power gains, but also blends automotive engineering into an artistic canvas of underhood beauty. Our system is constructed of premium materials and utilizes the most advanced development methods available to date. Our system is engineered to fit exactly like OEM with simple hand tools and includes all new installation hardware. 

Inlet air is filtered by our custom-spec'd high flow, reusable cotton gauze air filter element. Featuring a 3.0" bell mouth inlet that smooths incoming air, a conical shape that maximizes filtration surface area and an 8-ply cotton gauze construction to provide the best balance between airflow and filtration efficiency.  

The large 80mm (3.15") induction tube channels the intake air from the air filter assembly. The induction tube is CNC-bent from 6061 aluminum with bead rolled ends and then wrinkle black powdercoated for a durable and attractive finish. The induction tube assembly is precision designed, engineered and crafted for the best performance and fitment. It also includes a CNC bent, fully TIG welded support bracket and OE-location vacuum nipple for the intake manifold runner flap solenoid. 

Completing the induction system routing is our ECS Silicone Turbo Inlet Hose. The turbo inlet hose coupler was designed and engineered in-house with a high quality 5-ply construction to provide a strong but flexible structure and a secure fit. A smooth interior provides unimpeded airflow, while the smooth, unassuming exterior adds an appearance upgrade to any engine bay. This hose also includes stainless steel smooth-band worm gear hose clamps for long lasting, durable operation. 

Throughout years of in-house development, performance-driven design changes and strict product testing, our design has resulted in a highly effective air induction system. Our induction system not only looks good but is real world tested with performance that is second to none. If you expect nothing but the best, like we do, this is the only system for you!

The ECS Tuning Luft-Technik Induction System Includes the following:​​

  • 3.0" Conical, Cotton Gauze, Reusable Air Filter
  • 80mm (3.15") Wrinkle Black Powdercoated Aluminum Induction Tube with Mounting Bolt & Lock Washer 
  • 5-Ply Silicone Turbo Inlet Coupler with Hose Clamps

Performance gains: 

Dyno Tested ECS Shop MK7 GTI* with COBB Stage 1+ 93 Octane Software, ECS Turbo Outlet and Throttle Body Charge Pipe Kit and Milltek 3.0"  Turbo Back Exhaust System

  • Maximum Gains: +6.0 Wheel Horsepower @ 5,300 RPM and +6.0 Ft/lbs of Wheel Torque @ 5,200 RPM 
  • Peak Gains: +5.0 Wheel Horsepower @ 5,300 RPM and +1.0 Ft/lbs Wheel Torque @ 2,700 RPM 
  • Largest peak HP and Torque gains are between 4,500 and 6,800 RPM for consistent mid to top-range boost in power!
  • Turbocharger efficiency is also improved by reducing restriction ahead of the compressor, resulting in less boost pressure needed to produce more power. At 6,000 RPM the ECS Luft-Technik Intake made +6.0 WHP over the stock intake system with 1.8psi lower boost pressure. 
  • * Gains were measured with the heat shield/dual inlet duct found on ES#3161804. Performance figures are representative of filter design and induction routing and their specific design elements. 

***For vehicles without Secondary Air Injection Only*** If your vehicle has Secondary Air Injection, you will also need to purchase our SAI Adapter Kit - ES#3175226.
