APR B.8/B8.5 Carbon Fiber Cold Air Intake

SKU CI100021


Cold Air Intakes are an excellent modification for any vehicle, as they bring in cooler air, instead of air that has been heat soaked by the engine. The putative principle behind a cold air intake is that cooler air has a higher density, thus containing more oxygen per volume unit than warmer air.

Developed as a true ram air intake system, the Carbonio Cold Air Intake will provide your vehicle with a long list of improvements. Increased horsepower, throttle response, fuel economy, and easy installation lend themselves to serious performance upgrades. Instead of the stock intake snorkel which can collapse under boost, the APR Carbonio system holds it shape so that no boost losses are experienced.

This intake does offer a few OEM features, including maintaining all factory emissions components and the OEM thermostatically controlled flap valve.

Benefits of the Carbonio CAI System include:

  • Increases Horsepower and Torque

  • Improves Throttle Response

  • Decreased Turbo 'Lag'

  • Improves Fuel Economy

  • Enhances Engine's Volumetric Efficiency

  • Installs in an Hour (does not require bumper or headlight removal)

  • Maintains Clean Appearance by Retaining Factory Engine Cover

  • Maintains All Factory Emissions Components

  • Fits Both Manual and Automatic Transmissions

  • Unique Thermal Barrier Composite Construction Ensures Low Inlet Temperatures

  • Fully Compatible and Complimentary with APR Software and Exhaust systems

Each Carbonio Kit Includes:

  • Aerospace Grade Carbon Fiber Main Section Ensures Inlet Temperatures Stay Low

  • Carbon Fiber Main Section has Show Quality Finish

  • All Necessary Hardware Included for Easy Install without Cutting Or Modifying


If you want to continue upgrading your engine, the next step is either an APR Stage 1 Chip or an Exhaust System. The former is located under the Engine section, while the latter can be found in our Exhaust section. Give your vehicle some added power with these products from ECS Tuning.
