Take your MQB platform Audi/VW to the next level with the GAS 89mm Titanium Intake! The perfect compliment to our 90mm MQB downpipe.
When developing our MQB intake, we knew we had some choices in front of us. The decision to go with CP1 titanium was not one we took lightly. Titanium is not a cheap material to work with, but ignoring the benefits of this aerospace material was not something we could overlook.
Titanium is what we like to call "functionally beautiful". Aside from being one of the most lightweight metals available, titanium has a very low heat transfer rate (16 W/m-K) compared to aluminum (152 W/m K), which means it is highly resistant to heat transfer from the engine bay. Intake temperatures play a key role in power production on the EA837 supercharged engine. While other manufacturers sidestep this issue by powder coating or heat shielding their intake tubes, we opted to go straight to the source by choosing a material that will naturally keep intake temps down.
In addition to its excellent thermal properties, titanium has a much higher strength-to-weight ratio than aluminum, meaning that much thinner tubing can be used in our intakes. This means larger internal diameters when compared to aluminum with the same outer diameter. Our 3.5" titanium intake, as a result, boasts a 5% increase in intake area when compared to a 3.5" aluminum intake. A higher strength-to-weight ratio also means lighter parts.
Titanium Grade 4, also known as titanium CP1, is the strongest of all commercially pure titanium grades. It combines excellent corrosion resistance with good strength and toughness. This means that your intake will continue to look beautiful well past your engine's expiration date. The lack of paint or powder coating also ensures that the finish will hold up for the long run! Occasional cleaning is all that's required.
