THE EUROPEAN VEHICLE SPECIALIST
With extensive background in engineering the finest in Performance Software, Unitronic developed an intake system that maximizes performance, while maintaining precise MAF scaling, as a result of its sensitivity on this platform.
This translates into a complete Cold Air Intake System that is sure to perform to the maximum, providing increased power, air velocity, and throttle response, while also decreasing air intake temperatures and turbo lag. In addition, Unitronic’s Cold Air Intake will enhance the sound of your turbocharger and diverter valve.
Intake Systems featuring a free flowing, open element design will result in a more audible sound from your vehicle’s turbocharger. Additionally, due to the Diverter Valve (DV) being located directly on the compressor housing of the turbocharger, an audible resonance can be heard through the free flowing, open element design on this application, as illustrated with the associated diagram.
