Pipercross Audi R8 4.2 V8 Filter Kit
Lucky owners of Audi’s sublime V8 R8 can now improve the breathing of their everyday supercar, thanks to the new filter kit from induction experts, Pipercross. The Northamptonshire firm has created a bespoke induction set-up that affixes directly to the factory intakes, but more than doubles the surface area available for filtration. The foam used draws heavily on Pipercross’ BTCC experience, as the firm supplied many leading teams on the grid this season.
In addition to the vastly improved surface area, carefully selected multilayered foam within the unit offers 30% more air-flow than even the most efficient of OEM filters. As well as providing a far better rate of flow, the ingenious multi-faceted design also filters down to a far finer rate, protecting the engine against damage. The kits come complete with a can of cleaning spray to keep the filters in tip-top condition and thanks to a lifetime warranty, it makes huge financial sense, especially when you factor in the reasonable price tag. Best of all, each kit is lovingly hand-crafted in Pipercross’ UK factory. Both filters also feature a factory MAF boss for the ultimate in ‘plug and play’ functionality.
The Pipercross R8 filter kit provides a subtle induction ‘roar’ combined with a genuine airflow improvement, making it an essential enhancement for anyone running a V8 R8. Even if you’re not, with over 3,000 models covered in the range, there’s a good chance they have one to enhance and protect your engine. The kit, with both filters, is priced at £173.99
