OEM rubber turbo inlet boots do the job OK on a stock application, but are prone to problems once boost is turned up and performance increased.
Due to the lack of reinforcement, it's common to see the stock hose collapse under vacuum created by the turbo's suction. The OEM rubber hose is also a common area to see cracks and leaks with age, which can throw off MAF readings.
Since our hose is not corrugated, and maintains a larger inside diameter than the stock hose, it flows much smoother and flows more air than the OEM hose, and its a direct fit to boot. Constructed from high quality, automotive grade silicone using 4 layers of reinforced nylon - the finest quality.
Fits all B7 (2006-2008) Audi A4 2.0T FSI models with the stock airbox or APR Carbonio Intake System. Constructed from high quality, automotive grade silicone using 4 layers of reinforced nylon. Includes new hose clamps.
Available in black or red. Please select option above.
Great fitment! Went in quick and painless, and noticed an increase in turbo response, especially on the high end of the RPMs. A must have for anyone who plans on upgrading anything.

I have had this inlet hose on my 2006 A4 2.0T for about a year now. Initial impressions were pretty good! The engine felt more responsive. the torque hit got much better after the installation (I had already deleted the MAF screen). It doesn't really make the turbo louder. I even deleted all of that sound deadening foam inside the airbox. Still, i noticed no increase in intake loudness...which is cool because I want the car to be a sleeper.
The fitment is perfect... and i mean perfect! I installed it myself and i had no trouble at all. It hasnt cracked during the cold winter months, its holding up pretty well.
I would recommend this inlet pipe to anyone who wants more f..l..o..w
