AWE-Tuning releases CCB (cold cone box) intake for the MKVI Golf R - +17 horsepower at the wheels
Introducing AWE-Tuning's CCB intake for the MKVI Golf R. This intake fits in the factory location and requires no modification. No CEL is triggered, OEM operation. The airbox itself is fully enclosed and made out of carbon fiber. The airbox mounts using a billet aluminum bracket. Definitely high quality materials employed. The benefits? Throttle response, sound, and of course power and torque. Gains to the wheels on a Mustang MD-500-SE AWD dyno are +17 horsepower at all four wheels.
Very solid gains although those are with a tune and over a baseline with a Giac Stage 2 tune. Without a tune, the gains likely won't be as large. Regardless, this should be run with a tune to get the full benefit. Looking at the graph, the gains come mostly up top so the intake is definitely allowing the motor to breathe better at high rpm.
Price? $619.95. Not exactly a VW tuning value but it's difficult to argue with the materials and results. Pictures an dynograph below.
