Revo Open Cone Air Intake System

MQB 2.0TSI EA888 EVO High Output 

The Revo Open Cone Air Intake System for the MQB 2.0TSI EA888 Evo High Output 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 ECU Software. Engineered to directly replace the stock airbox, pipework and filter, this kit comes complete with a larger diameter silicone hose, Aluminim hard pipe, heat shield, filter and fitting kit.

Key Features

  • Increased Performance & Air Flow Efficiency
  • Three Stage Foam Filter
  • Direct filter to turbo fitment 
  • Stepped Silicone for smooth airflow
  • Enclosed heatshield  

OEM vs Revo

When enhancing the performance of the 2.0T EA888 EVO High Output engine with software, the restrictive OEM intake struggles to flow enough air and limits the potential power gains from performance software. The Revo Air Intake System removes these restrictive elements, flowing more air volume and promoting smoother airflow vs. the OEM system. The Revo Open Cone system replaces the OEM air box with an aluminium heat shield and open cone filter to provide the aggressive intake/turbo sound and massive flow gains over the OEM air box filter. An aluminium powder coated pipe connects to the Revo Flush Fit silicone hose, which avoids unwanted turbulence at joints and increases the rate at which air can flow through the hose. The kit reuses the OE turbo inlet as initial evaluation found it to not provide any significant airflow restriction within the OE intake system especially with the stepped silicone intake hose. The size of the Revo components and the Flush Fit hose design ensure maximum air performance at any level of tuning.

Silicone Hoses

No detail has been overlooked in the Revo Open Cone Intake to reduce intake system restrictions. The stock corrugated plastic hose is replaced with a larger, internally-smooth silicone hose to reduce air turbulence while increasing air volume and air speed delivered to the turbo. 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. The Revo Flush Fit internal steps create a smooth transition between the aluminium intake pipe and turbo inlet to ensure the smoothest airflow possible within the system, while the integrated DV take off allows fitment to the OE DV hose at the OE location.

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 to the factory location of the DV take off. It was cruical in the deisgn that the fitment was perfect to ensure no boost pressure was lost from the diverter valve, allowing for maximum intake performance.

Air Filter

An intake system is only as good as the filter. The Revo Open Cone kit comes complete with a custom Revo three-stage foam filter, supported by galvanised epoxy-coated mesh for foam support under extreme vacuum load. Revo three-stage foam filters work very differently from conventional paper or cotton-gauze alternatives, designed to trap large particles on the outer layer and progressively finer particles on the inner layers. This triple-mesh design allows for equal-or-better levels of air filtration compared to the OE filter, while still allowing significantly higher volumes of filtered air into the Revo intake system. The Revo-designed and custom-manufactured rubber filter base features a radius feed into the Revo aluminium pipe work, as well as a Revo Flush Fit connection to the pipe work to maximize filtered air volume and stability into the Revo kit.

Heat shield

Ensuring the engine has access to cold air is vital for performance. The Revo heat shield was designed utilising the latest in 3D scanning technology to create a closed, fully welded shield that effectively insulates the Revo filter from radiant engine bay heat on all sides. Further utilising the 3D scanning technology, the Revo heat shield features a precision-designed provision for the front air duct to channel cold, fresh air directly to the filter as well as fixturing to the OE mounting points, with OE mounting grommets. Providing unparalleled functionality, fitment and ease of installation.

Research and Development

MQB 2.0TSI EA888 EVO High Output 

All Revo products are designed in-house and are designed utilising an in-house 3D printer and 3D scanner, as well as the latest CAD and CFD programs. Airflow testing was carried out on both the full OE intake system and the Revo Open Cone kit at a third party, independent facility in a controlled environment to ensure fair test data was captured to quantify how much restriction the Revo intake kit removes from the EA888 EVO High Output intake system.


Performance Data

The bench flow testing results show improvement throughout the entire flow range, but especially towards the top end of the flow testing range, showing how the OE system severely restricts engine performance at higher air flow volumes. The Revo Open Cone intake was able to flow over 650 CFM at a 915.02 mmWg restriction, over 50 CFM more than the OE system (which maxed out at approximately 600 CFM flow at a significantly higher 1027.73 mmWg restriction). At the OE maximum flow value of 600 CFM, the Revo kit showed an improvement of 278.67 mmWg less restriction (a 37.2% reduction) - as can be seen on the graph. The 278.67 mmWg reduction in airflow restriction at 600 CFM (as well as the maximum restriction reduction of 62.52% at 350 CFM) clearly demonstrates how the Revo intake kit out-performs the OE system throughout the airflow range, highlighting the improvements in airflow and overall increase in engine power gains with the Revo Open Cone kit.
