Revo Carbon Series MQB Airbox Lid & Turbo Hose Kit

Write a review

Revo Carbon Series – Air Box Lid

The Revo Carbon Lid and turbo inlet hose have been designed and engineered to directly replace the stock air box lid, pipe and elbow found in vehicles with the 1.8 and 2.0 TSI engines with an IHI turbo. The Revo Carbon Lid offers a high-quality replacement, with its contoured design it not only just aesthetically pleasing but designed to improve airflow and performance of your vehicle.

Revo Carbon Series air intake systems perform beautifully. Designed to function no matter the power, Carbon Series intakes look great because of their effective design.


Key Features

  • Increased performance & air flow
  • Carbon Series Quality
  • Engineered for both LHD and RHD fitment
  • 16% Larger airbox outlet

OEM vs Carbon Intake

With ample efficiency for a stock vehicle, the OEM system quickly becomes a choking point for the engine when running Revo Software. The Revo Carbon Lid has been designed to increase airbox volume and promote smoother airflow. The closed air system helps eliminate heat soak whilst directing cold air through its curved design directly to the oversized outlet. With a 16% larger outlet, the Carbon Lid drastically improves the rate at which air can flow, ensuring maximum performance at even Stage 3 specification.


Silicone Hose Design

The Revo Turbo Hose as an increased inner diameter to match the large carbon lid outlet that then gradually tapers to the turbo to optimise airflow, while maintaining the tolerances required to fit both LHD and RHD vehicles. Designed to replace the plastic hose and turbo elbow, this upgrade reduces restriction and maximises smooth airflow improving both power and torque throughout the rev range.

Turbo Inlet

The Revo machined inlet replaces the restrictive elbow found on the IS20/IS38 turbos. The billet aluminium piece securely fits the OE unit using locking tabs and integrated O-rings. With almost double the cross-sectional area compared to other available products, air can stabilise and distribute before a smooth tapered transition to the turbo. Removing the internal steps between components ensures smooth and linear airflow transition between elements, providing uninterrupted airflow and removing any unnecessary turbulence.

Research and Development

All Revo products are designed and rigorously tested in-house utilising 3D printed prototypes, latest CAD and CFD programs, 4 wheel hub dyno and Revo developed data acquisition software. The Revo Carbon lid and Turbo Inlet Hose allows the Stock IS38/IS20 turbo to run more efficiently, by maximising air volume and minimising turbulence you increase power and torque, especially at the top end of the rev range as highlighted during controlled Dyno testing.
