Intake Audi S1 2.0 TSI OE Airbox

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 flex of the intake system under load, however having these ridges causes a lot or 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.

 

Scope of delivery:

  • 1x Revo ProPanel Air Filter
  • 1x Black SAMCO siliconeintake hose
  • Fitting kit - 2x hose clamps
  • Fitting manual
  • Air box not inclued - kit uses stock airbox shown on pictures

 

Foam filter features:

  • Special dry foam - designed to protect your air flow meter
  • 30% more airflow over a standard paper air filter
  • Longer lifespan before cleaning required over cotton
  • Easy cleaning, no dirt caught like with V shaped filter grooves
  • Bench tested for improved fuel economy, power and torque outputs
  • Lifetime warranty on all replacement and performance road use filters

 

Why choose foam filter?

Because, compared to paper or other filter technologies, reticulated polyester foam achieves optimum performance against three key criteria:

  • Maximum airflow: the ability to allow air to pass through without causing a large drop in pressure.
  • Cleaning efficiency: the capability to arrest a high proportion of airborne dust while feeding the engine clean air.
  • Dust load-up tolerance: the capability to absorb a large amount of dust without reducing airflow capacity.

This design of filter has been used in all fields of motorsport from Formula 1 to the World Rally Championship. The range receives this same attention to detail at the design stage and is then taken into production with consummate quality.

Three layer foam system in details:

Revo ProPanel Filters use multi-layered foam technology to trap dust and dirt while maintaining flow efficiency over time. Using foam increases the filters surface area and is washable, compared to standard paper and cotton filters which trap dust on the surface and become less efficient the more they are used, choking the engine and reducing performance.

The outer core is a coarse foam designed to trap larger particles, the second layer is a medium foam designed to trap most particles and the inner core is fine foam which will trap any particles small enough to reach it. The triple layer foam design ensures an exceptional level of engine protection and long-term performance advantage.

Stainless steel wire mesh
To avoid erosion, only the highest quality steel is used.

Course outer layer:
Stops large pieces of dirt and foreign matter from penetrating further. Straightens airflow into subsequent layers.

Medium grade middle layer:
This second filtration layer traps most of the harmful dirt that leads to engine damage.

Fine inner layer:
Extracts fine particles while allowing full air flow to the engine for maximum power.
