As the search for the best air intake for my Mk7 GTI continues the next candidate to arrive is the Racingline VWR R600 Intake System. The Racingline Turbo Inlet hose will also be used with the intake.
First stop for the VWR R600 is the flow bench where airflow measurements are made.
Airflow results are compared with the other candidate air intake systems below.
The Racingline R600 intake has the highest airflow reading when coupled with the Turbo Inlet Elbow of any airbox that has been tested so far. The difference among the top flowing intakes is at the edge of the margin of error therefore trying to rank them is subject to uncertainty. More generally, the Racingline intake flowed similar to the two open intake systems tested from Integrated Engineering and Induct Performance.
Next will be a test of the Racingline R600 intake system using the MST Performance replacement air filter kit for the R600 intake because I don’t have high confidence in the filtration performance of a foam filter like the R600 is supplied with. With the R600 being installed on my GTI for the temperature measurement portion of the testing I intend to use an air filter I have more confidence in.
