In most vehicle applications, the corrugated turbo inlet hose found in the intake system is not designed for performance or modification. It was designed to get the job done, and when adding a performance filter, intake, or tune the stock inlet hose can start to show it’s a weakness when suction from the turbocharger is increased.
The ECS Carbon Fiber Turbo Inlet Pipe was designed in-house and made with high-quality hand-laid carbon fiber layers providing a strong and secure fit. A smooth interior provides unimpeded airflow, while the carbon fiber exterior adds an appearance upgrade to any engine bay.
The carbon fiber pipe is constructed from 2×2 twill weave carbon fiber, gloss clear coated for UV and heat protection for continuous operating temperatures of up to 300°. Designed to fit perfectly in place of the factory accordion pipe, their CAD design assures a smooth gradual transition from the intake/airbox to the turbo inlet.
The included silicone hose couplers allow clean fitment of any intake setup;
The smooth, straight coupler is used with a hard-mounted intake pipe configuration to the engine (such as ECS Kohlefaser Luft-Technik mounted to the cylinder head)
The accordion rubber coupler is used with OE-type mounting configurations (such as OEM airbox)
