Product Details

Description

CTS Turbo was the first to make an aftermarket solution for the turbo inlet pipe. Constructed from mandrel bent aluminum & precision CNC machined flanges this piece works with any MQB Audi/VW, regardless of engine displacement or factory turbocharger size.

 By removing the factory inlet pipe and replacing it with the CTS Turbo MQB high flow turbo inlet pipe you will free up air flow to your turbo. More flow means faster turbo spool and improved turbocharger sound.

Simple installation takes 10 minutes and can be done using basic hand tools. 

Don't let your free flowing intake taper into a small restrictive factory inlet. Upgrade to CTS Turbo High Flow Turbo Inlet and make sure you get the most air flow to your turbo!


Any intake system will work with the CTS Turbo inlet pipe. Stock as well as aftermarket.

Power gains of 6WHP!

  • CTS turbo inlet pipe

    Inlet pipe was delivered in good condition. The install was straight forward. And can feel some power gains. Good quality product that won’t disappoint. Highly recommended.

  • great piece for reducing some turbo lag

    The throttle is definitely more responsive with this part. I logged some before and after, and found that the boost starts to build about 100ms sooner than it used to when transitioning from no throttle to throttle on. That's a relatively drastic change. On a 14 corner track, that adds up to 1.4 seconds reduction in throttle off time.

    I knocked off a start for two things. The inside lip that goes from the pipe to the turbo has a small ridge, but it's fairly smooth, most air should be deflected by the pipe wall before it really gets there. While the outside black finish is nice, there was a lot of overspray into the pipe itself and the inside was not smooth at all. I'm not sure how smooth comparable pipes are, but this was pretty rough, and would have been a lot better if it was designed out of a solid plastic piece. I see no advantage to this being metal, and only disadvantages. I took a dremel with a polishing tip and polished the entire inside and inside lip. It's now super smooth, and I'm confident it flows a lot better than before.

  • Well built part

    I’m sure most people know about the restrictions of the factory inlet. This obviously opens things up a bit. I’m not sure you’d see any noticeable gains from just an inlet but this coupled with a closed intake and you may see some gains. Fairly straightforward to install. 5mm Torx, rotate it clockwise and it pops out. Swap the O-ring (why they don’t give you a new one is beyond me) and reinstall the same way. Factory PCV hose can take some doing getting off. Rotate it slightly while pulling towards the battery and it should come off. That was the hardest part for me. Depending on your mileage there may be some oil in the old inlet. Mine had a light coating. I didn’t notice any increased induction noises but I did get a bump in fuel mileage.

  • Great little mod it makes a small sound difference and you can feel a bit of a faster spool.

  • nice product

    very easy to install. have to use a pry bar to pry out the hose connector, it impossible to remove the hose by hand. the product quality is good, i dont see much hp gain but it does improved the throttle respond.

  • They're Wrong. It DOES do Something......

    After I purchased this, I posted the link to ME's site and received a couple of "...oh, those don't do anything." statements.
    They're wrong. No extra HP, but the spool time for my OEM turbo has been improved a whole lot. No 300 mS delay waiting to pass the guy in front of me. Throttle and go.
    Buy one.
    One star off for Fit and Finish. I cleaned off the paint overspray in side and polished it a bit. Should have been delivered that way.

  • Idk

    It's cheap and fun upgrade but I don't know that it actually did anything. My wife's car is pretty much stock with an APR stage 1. I put this on. It's well built. I guess I noticed slightly less lag on WOT but overall not much. I like that it's metal and that's it's a larger diameter, but I would not recommend this for someone looking for a performance upgrade. This is a fun, "because I can" thing to do. If you want performance go tune or downpipe.

  • CTS Turbo Inlet on 2017 Audi S3 8V

    Purchase and delivery was simple and fast. Installing was straight forward after watching a YouTube install. I have the CTS turbo inlet paired with a GFB diverter valve and Unitronic carbon fiber intake on my 2017 Audi S3 8V MQB and was expecting more intake noise? I can hear maybe a touch more but still not what I was expecting or what I saw on YouTube. Overall quality is good. The elbow fit with no misalignment or annoying gaps. Powder coating was also uniform with no low spots of over spray. I also couldn't tell if I gained an HP with it. The gains would be too small to feel anyways. I do like the fact that the inlet pipe is metal now and doesn't have the choke point. Overall a good addition to my mods.

  • CTS turbo inlet pipe

    Great buy in my opinion. Felt the extra torque after the install. Installed the CTS turbo muffler delete at the same time. Install wasn't too bad.there are a few tight spots you need to get to. Toughest part was removing the pvc vent hose on the inlet pipe. Quality is good on both the delete and inlet. Thanks Moddedeuros!

  • Excellent

    Fit perfectly, made a noticeable difference in sound and power. Really woke the car up across the rev range. Seems the turbo spools much more freely and faster now with this part. Paired with a CTS intake the engine feels like it is breathing so much better. Everything feels more efficient. Only cons are the fitment on the S3/R, We apparently have a larger battery than the GTI/A3 and the provided heat shield butts up against the batter and cables. I chose to not run the heatshield for this reason.

  • Great Product

    One of the easiest parts to install. Turbo spools up much faster. Definitely better throttle response. When compared to the OE Inlet pipe, you can definitely see what the bottleneck is. Works and fits well with GFB DV+ T9351.

  • Easy install on MQB chassis with 1.8 TSI. Intake tract is completely upgraded and motor pulls really hard and great fuel economy. 34.5 mixed city and highway.

  • Easy to install and decent gains. 5 to 10 HP through the Rev range on a 16 gti.

  • Great product

    Was easy to install and made a difference added with a new diverter valve.

  • fun mod to add. would recommend

  • great little mod. can def hear my turbo more now
