Intake - Carbon Fiber (APR-Carbonio) for B8-S4-S5 3.0T FSI, Stage 1
Carbonio's latest carbon fiber intake for the 3.0 TFSI engine is a ram air design that completely separates the intake filter from the engine bay. Building from years of experience on and off the race track, Carbonio's and APR's engineering teams have spent countless hours developing a true cold air and ram air carbon fiber design that can be recreated affordably for the street performance enthusiast.
For many years professional motorsport organizations have suffered great expense to properly tune the air intake delivery system for use in endurance and sprint races where every last horsepower and pound feet of torque can make the difference in position when crossing the finish line. Historically these designs have proven to be the most efficient and powerful although the most expensive to produce.
Aftermarket performance companies have attempted to capitalize on these designs however the cost restraints have typically resulted in compromise and deviation from the true engineering principles associated with motorsport accomplishment. Don't be fooled by catch phrases and tag lines alluding to a new intake technology or special design characteristic. You won't see any of these gimmicks installed on race cars at the Nurburgring.
Carbonio and APR have gone even further to maintain all oem specifications necessary to integrate cohesively with an otherwise stock engine to avoid raising eyebrows at the dealership. Flexibility was another characteristic of Carbonio's and APR's design whereas the new TFSI intake is also suitable for Stage 1 and Stage 2 modified engines all the way up to future supercharger upgrades.
Constructed of aerospace grade carbon fiber and designed to remove intake restriction, APR's Carbonio intake system provides smoother transitional airflow, increased air velocity, superior insulation of the incoming air to reduce intake air temperatures and a larger volume of available air to aid throttle response.

Smooth and Direct Air Flow:
The OEM intake system vents some of the incoming air into the engine bay and takes several twists and turns before the air ever reaches the supercharger. The Carbono intake system simplifies the intake system by directing all incoming air directly at the filter.Modular Design:
The OEM intake system includes resonators in the hose connecting the air box to the throttle body designed to reduce supercharger whine. The APR Carbonio intake system in Stage I form replaces the factory air box and filter, and will deliver roughly 11 AWHP over stock. The Stage II back pipe when combined with the Stage I Air box will increase power further to around 15 AWHP and will slightly increase intake supercharger whine.
This is the Stage 1 Intake System. If you are interested in purchasing both Stages 1 and 2 for the Intake, add this item to your cart along with the Stage 2 Intake which can be found in this same section.
Benefits of the Carbonio CAI System include:
- Increased Horsepower and Torque
- Improved Throttle Response
- Improved Fuel Economy
- Removes OEM intake snorkel which can collapse under boost
- Enhanced Volumetric Efficiency of Engine
- Enhanced Sound of the Supercharger
- Installs in an Hour (does not require bumper or headlight removal)
- Maintains Clean Appearance by Retaining Factory Engine Covers
- Maintains All Factory Emissions Components
- Maintains the Thermostatically Controlled OEM Flap Valve Assembly from the Factory Air box
- Fits Both Manual and Automatic Transmissions
- Fully Compatible and Complimentary with APR Software, Exhaust, and Supercharger systems
- Modular Design Allows for Performance Gains in Stages and the Ability to Keep the Factory Intake Resonators
