Constructed of aerospace grade carbon fiber and designed to remove intake restriction, APR’s Carbonio intake system provides smoother transitional airflow, increased air velocity, superior insulation of the incoming air to reduce intake air temperatures and a larger volume of available air to aid throttle response and turbocharger spool.
Ram air induction is accomplished by maintaining the oem air inlet opening at the front of the leading hood edge which is the highest pressure area of airflow across the entire vehicle. Placement of the air filter as close to this high pressure zone as possible results in overcoming some of the airflow restriction created by even the highest flow air filters available.
Benefits of the Carbonio CAI System include:
Increased Horsepower and Torque
Improved Throttle Response
Decreased Turbo 'Lag'
Improved Fuel Economy
Enhanced Engine Volumetric Efficiency
Enhanced Sound of Turbo Diverter Valve
Installs in an Hour (does not require bumper or headlight removal)
Maintains Clean Appearance by Retaining Factory Engine Cover
Maintains All Factory Emissions Components
Fits Both Manual and Automatic Transmissions
Fully Compatible and Complimentary, with APR Software and Exhaust systems
Maintains the Thermostatically Controlled OEM Flap Valve Assembly from the Factory Airbox
