MQB 2.0TSI EA888 EVO Tiguan R

Beautifully crafted from the highest quality 3K carbon, the Revo Carbon Series is much more than a visual enhancement. Designed to directly replace the restrictive OEM components, the Carbon Series has performance woven into every core of every product

The Revo Carbon Intake System has been designed and engineered to directly replace the OE front air scoop, airbox lid, filter, and intake pipe found on the VW Tiguan R equipped with the EA888 EVO High Output engine and Continental® turbocharger.

Key Features

  • Increased performance & airflow efficiency
  • Carbon Series quality front air scoop with dual-air feed and internal fin
  • Carbon Series quality airbox lid with 16% larger outlet
  • Three-stage foam filter
  • Larger, stepped silicone for increased/smoother airflow
  • Precision machined OE DV connector
  • 35.9% max, 26.64% average reduction in airflow restriction (vs. OEM parts)


When enhancing the performance of the 2.0T EA888 EVO High Output engine with performance software, the restrictive OEM intake limits the potential power gains from the software. The Revo Carbon Series Intake Kit removes every restrictive element of the OEM system for the ultimate in performance and visual upgrades, flowing more air volume and promoting smoother airflow. The OE turbocharger inlet is utilised in the Revo kit, as initial evaluation found that the OE inlet’s size and design (markedly similar to the Revo EVO Low Output inlet) does not provide any significant airflow restriction. All components of the Revo system have been meticulously designed to work in harmony with each other and the OE turbocharger inlet – each Revo part’s air volume and flow stability features compliment the next to provide substantial performance gains at any level of EA888 EVO High Output engine tuning.



Revo’s MQB EVO carbon front air scoop replaces the OEM plastic front panel with a stunning 3K carbon part featuring several intake performance improvements. The Revo part maintains both front panel thru air feeds, while removing the swing gate found on the OE secondary air feed, to maximise engine bay airflow. A diverter fin crafted into the Revo scoop’s internal design directs more fresh airflow toward the intake system to make sure the downstream Revo components are utilized to their full airflow and performance capabilities. The Revo carbon fibre type, weave direction and finish are precisely controlled to match the Revo Airbox Lid and yield an engine bay aesthetic only found with the Revo Carbon Series Intake System after installation.



The Revo carbon lid directly replaces the OEM airbox lid, increasing airflow via the 16% larger outlet and functional curvature of the main body while adding a beautiful form-follows-function look to the EVO High Output engine bay. The closed air system and 3K carbon construction helps reduce intake air temperatures while the machined filtered-air vacuum connection ensures all necessary engine connections are maintained for a flawless, drop-in performance and visual upgrade.



The Revo silicone hose perfectly supplements the increased size of both the Revo Carbon Airbox Lid and the Continental® OE turbocharger inlet, replacing the OE corrugated plastic hose with a larger, internally smooth part that reduces internal air turbulence and dramatically increases the volume and speed of filtered air delivered to the turbocharger. Specifically designed for the Tiguan R due to the difference in airbox location, the Revo hose’s four-ply construction, coupled with an internal wire helix, increases strength to prevent collapsing under high vacuum and engine bay temperatures. Revo Flush Fit internal steps create a smooth transition between the Revo Lid and OE turbocharger inlet, ensuring the smoothest airflow possible within the system. The quality-controlled gloss black exterior finish naturally blends into the engine bay, taking nothing away from the elegant aesthetic of the Revo Carbon Lid.



The Revo machined DV connector allows for OE fitment to the factory DV hose. The precision machined connector replicates the OE part found on the intake hose, designed to seamlessly fit into the Revo hose at the factory location of the DV take off. Strict machining tolerances and quality control ensure that the fitment of the Revo connector mirrors the factory connection exactly, ensuring no boost pressure is lost during recirculation and thus allowing for maximum intake performance.

An intake system is only as good as the filter. The included Revo three-stage foam replacement panel filter improves on the flow characteristics of the OEM paper filter without reducing the level of intake air filtration. Revo three-stage filters work very differently than conventional paper or cotton-gauze mediums, trapping large particles on the outer layer and filtering progressively finer particles at the inner layers to provide equal-or-better levels of air filtration compared to the OE paper filter, while still allowing significantly higher volumes of filtered air into the intake. A galvanized metal mesh supports the Revo three-stage filter media to provide the required support against extreme and prolonged vacuum loads and the custom-manufactured rubber top plate fits directly into the OE lower airbox to provide a durable, high performance air filtration solution.


Research and Development

All Revo products are designed in-house utilising an in-house 3D printer, 3D scanner and the latest CAD and CFD programs. Bench airflow testing was carried out on both the full OE EVO High Output intake system and the Revo Carbon Series Intake Kit at a third party, independent facility within a controlled environment to ensure fair test data was captured and to accurately quantify the intake restriction benefits of the Revo kit.


The bench airflow testing results show the Revo kit’s average 26.64% reduction in restriction throughout the entire airflow range. Notably, the top end of the airflow testing range is where the OE system is most restrictive, the Revo kit offers the most improvements and where performance software typically unlocks additional power (through higher boost pressure/airflow turbocharger demands). The Revo kit was able to flow over 650CFM at 924.27 mmWG restriction, over 50CFM more than the OE system at 600CFM and a significantly higher 1027.73 mmWG restriction. At the OE maximum flow volume of 600CFM, the Revo kit reduced restriction by 24.86% (772.23 mmWG vs. 1027.73 mmWG). At a 350CFM flow testing volume, the Revo kit yields the maximum restriction reduction of the entire test (35.9% reduction – 214.47 mmWG vs. 334.6 mmWG), clearly demonstrating how the Revo kit out-performs the OE system, improves the intake airflow of the EVO High Output engine and increases vehicle performance.
