Audi S1 intake
Get impressive performance benefits without compromising on the factory look of your engine bay. Revo OEM+ Air Intake Systems utilise the existing air box, replacing any restrictive components with parts precisely engineered to reduce turbulence and improve airflow.
The new Audi S1 intake has been designed to work in harmony with our Revo software. Starting by looking at the OE system we set about deciding where we could improve on the current design, it was apparent from the outset that the factory airbox was more than substantial for the flow of air the car required. The stock airbox is actually about 15% larger than the airbox on the MK7 Golf Gti from which the S1 shares the same engine platform. So we decided to keep with the airbox on this basis and had one of Revo ProPanel filters designed to replace the restrictive OE paper element to allow the turbo to breathe easier. The next section of the factory intake was the OE intake hose which feeds the clean air from the airbox into the turbo. The stock hose is made out of plastic with multiple ridges in it to allow for the flex of the intake system under load, however, having these ridges causes a lot of turbulence to the air. We re-designed the hose to eradicate this, maintaining the precise OE fit whilst eradicating any turbulence issues. Working alongside SamcoSport ensured the highest quality product, we opted to use high-temperature Nomex fabric to withstand the heat from the turbo, and automotive-grade silicone rubber to avoid fading or perishing over time. The inner ridges made way for smooth inner walls which after testing increased both airflow and speed resulting in more power and flow. To avoid the all too common problem of hose collapse under negative pressure from the turbo, we incorporated an embedded wire helix to prevent this from happening, no matter how much more power you run.
