Revo Audi B8/8.5 S4/S5/SQ5 3.0 TFSI Air Intake Kit – RA221M200200
Audi S4/S5/SQ5/Q5 3.0 TFSI Open Cone Intake
The Revo open cone Air Intake System for the 3.0 TFSI engine improves performance and offers an aggressive intake sound. Ensuring your engine can get access to enough air is paramount when increasing power; more air means more power throughout the rev-range.
Only Revo Air Intake Systems are specifically designed to work in harmony with your vehicle and Revo Software. Engineered to directly replace the stock airbox, pipework and filter. This kit comes complete with a ceramic coated pipe, heat shield, filter and fitting kit.
- Increased Performance
- Improved Air Flow Efficiency
- Ceramic Coated
- Three Stage Foam Filter with Mesh
- Lowers Air Intake Temperatures
OEM VS REVO
When you begin to enhance performance, the restrictive OEM intake struggles to flow enough air, robbing the engine of power. The Revo Air Intake System removes these restrictive elements promoting smoother airflow. Open Cone systems replace the OEM air box to make space for the heat shield, filter and ceramic coated pipe which joins directly to the throttle body. Revo Flush Fit silicone hoses mean joins eliminate unwanted turbulence and increase the rate at which air can flow, ensuring maximum performance at any level of performance.
The Revo intake pipe is designed to directly replace the plastic corrugated parts. The single piece mandrel-bent aluminium intake pipe reduces turbulence and internal restrictions. The mandrel-bent angles result in no loss of cross-sectional area and allow increased air speed through the intake.
The Revo intake pipe is coated with a Zircotec ceramic coating. Ceramic coatings act as a thermal barrier, reducing the transfer of engine bay temperature to the intake pipe and helping to keep intake air cooler. The coating also allows the pipe to cool at a faster rate, which is important when running more power.
Ensuring the engine has access to cold air is vital for performance. The Revo heat shield channels cold air from the front intake duct while partitioning the filter from the heat of the engine bay. The Revo Heatshield uses the stock mounting points to provide easy and secure installation.
An intake system is only as good as the filter. This kit comes complete with a custom Revo foam filter, supported by galvanised epoxy-coated mesh for strength under load. Revo three-stage foam filters work very differently to conventional paper or cotton-gauze alternatives designed to trap particles on the outer layer. Revo filters trap debris and particles within the foam layers, allowing air to still navigate through. The filter is also reusable.
Research and Development
All Revo products are designed in-house and are rigorously tested utilising an in-house 3D printer, latest CAD and CFD programs, hub dyno and Revo data acquisition software. The Revo intake allows the turbo to run more efficiently, intake a larger volume of air and minimise turbulence to increase both power and torque, as highlighted during controlled Dyno testing.
Back to back testing of the stock air intake system and the Revo kit were carried out. Fitted to an Audi S5 3.0 TFSI B8.5 with Revo ECU Software, Revo Charge Cooler and Pulley upgrade. The results were a power gain from 3900 to 6800rpm, the Revo intake offering a peak gain of 20HP at the hubs, and 9NM torque over the stock part. A maximum increase in airflow of up to +16 kg/hr gives impressive gains of 27HP @6100rpm and 30NM @4600RPM over using the stock intake system.
To show the efficiency of the ceramic coating as a thermal barrier, extra temperature sensors were placed at the filter and throttle body. After 5 dyno runs the maximum IAT (Intake Air Temperature) were 25% lower at the throttle body over the stock intake system. The Revo kit was able to keep temperatures lower than the stock system as well as dissipating heat more efficiently.
