NEW STaSIS Air Filter Intake Kit for Audi S4/S5 B8 3.0 V6
Respected Audi tuning house STaSIS has released details of its latest bespoke intake design. This time, the lucky recipients are the powerful pairing of the 3.0 V6 S4 and S5.
Drawing on the very latest thinking from the BTCC arena, the STaSIS intake offers a tangible increase in airflow into the engine inlet, yet still manages to filter down to a much finer rate than the factory part. This ability is down to an innovative race-proven, motorsport-quality three layer filter, supported by galvanised, epoxy-coated mesh ensuring the filter cannot collapse. This part has a large 180mm external diameter body and a smooth radius aluminium bell mouth specifically designed for optimum airflow from filter to pipe-work.
The lightweight aluminium one-piece pipework has a unique Zircotec™ coating to reduce temperatures. The same clever coating has been added to the laser-cut aluminium heat-shield to ensure the filter is well insulated from ambient under-bonnet temperatures, the shielding is designed to seal against the underneath of the bonnet liner and makes use of the ducting in the factory grill to maximise airflow and prevent heat-soak – resulting in impressive horsepower and torque gains, particularly on cars with software upgrades.
The STaSIS intake system will work effectively on an otherwise standard car, but obviously starts to really improve performance when coupled with STaSIS exhaust and software options to provide maximum gains.
