WHAT'S SO

SPECIAL?

Looking for the most sophisticated cold-air intake available for your MQB or MQB 'EVO' 2.0 or 1.8 TSI?
 
The R600 intake is our best selling system for this platform. Little wonder, as it combines OEM-standard design and quality with significant power gains on uprated cars.

OEM-standards of design, quality, materials and construction, hand-made in the UK. Fits like a factory part; lasts like a factory part.

Twin CFD-optimised front intakes extending across the front of the car help achieve lower intake temperatures and worthwhile power gains.

Enormous airbox volume houses the filter, complete with thoughtful details like connection to the original factory drain tube, and an SAI connection for US cars.

Your choice of filter unit, to suit different needs. Both are double the size of standard - rated right up to 600hp and beyond.

MQB GEN.3B

Golf 7 cold air intake
HOW DO I KNOW IF MY CAR IS 3B 'MAF'?

Check before you order!

The new 2.0TSI EA888 Gen.3B 'Miller cycle' engines (all producing around 190hp) are becoming ever more popular across the VWG range.

As these engines now use a Mass Airflow Sensor (MAF), they require a different version of the R600 intake (VWR12 G7R602) and the Turbo Inlet Hose (VWR12 G7R602ITBLA).

It's easy to check your car. Does it have this sensor and wiring shown in the picture? That's the MAF sensor, so make sure you get the correct R600 and hose.

COOLANT UNDERHOSE

Finish off your R600 with our Coolant Underhose. A really simple upgrade that removes that unsightly factory hose that rests on top of your beautiful intake, and reroutes it underneath instead.

The filter element is at the heart of your RacingLine intake. And, as with all specialised parts developed for high performance and motorsport use, the filter element must be a part of your regular maintenance schedule.

 

If you run our Trifoam filter, our Oil and Cleaner Kit will help you keep your filter in peak condition at all times and ensure that the complex triple-layer foam continues to deliver its power and filtration benefits for many years.

COTTON

FILTER 'OVERSOCK'

PART NO:  VWR12G7R600OS

Want the ultimate from your Cotton Filter? 

Our new Cotton Filter 'Oversock' combines the best of both. Simply slide the foam oversock over the top of your Cotton Filter and protect the surface layer of the cotton from dust and dirt. When it needs it, the oversock can be cleaned or just replaced to keep the Cotton Filter at its very best for years.

R600 'EVO' vs R600

R600 'EVO'

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?

The new MQB 'EVO' cars (such as Golf mk8, Audi S3 8Y etc) need our revised version of R600 intake.

 

Even thought the differences are small, we've re-tooled the moulding for both the top and the base to make sure you still get the perfect fitment on the new cars that you've come to expect from R600.

Underside of base is changed to fit around new piping layout in MQB Evo cars

Each end of top lid now has a different shape for perfect MQB Evo fitment
