2.0 TSI heat shield intake kit for Golf Mk6 GTI, Audi A3 (8P) and others

The Mk6 Golf GTI is a cracking car straight out of the box. It offers a winning combination of good looks, nimble chassis and a potent 2.0 TSI engine – ideal for enthusiast drivers. We’re fortunate to have one on our staff fleet and were quick to develop a performance intake kit to replace the restrictive stock air-box setup.


The brief for the development team was to create a solution that would offer increased airflow and an improved induction sound with OEM levels of fit and finish – plus also fit other 2.0 TSI vehicles. The end result is the JSK-123 kit, which delivers a significant increase in airflow. When supported by further engine tuning, it can lead to further performance gains.

This comprehensive package includes a high-quality Ramair filter which utlises dual-layer Aeriform technology to deliver much improved airflow, as well as highly efficient levels of filtration. The filter may be cleaned in order to maintain maximum efficiency.

Also in the kit is a 4-ply silicone intake pipe, which maintains a smooth 80mm diameter inlet from the filter to the MAF housing – again, designed to maximise airflow. To complete the kit, a laser-cut, precision folded heat shield is included, which fits directly to the vehicle’s OEM mounting points. Like the other products in this kit, it comes in a high-quality black finish and helps to maintain low intake temps by providing a barrier between the air filter and the rest of the engine bay.

The JSK-123 package includes everything needed for easy DIY installation, including all nuts, bolts, clips, brackets and vacuum hose – along with comprehensive fitting instructions. And as if that wasn’t enough, we’ve also produced a handy video (below) showing you how to install the kit, plus a before and after test so you can hear the difference it makes to the induction sound.

This kit also fits a range of other 2.0 TSI/TFSI EA888 Gen1 vehicles, including the Audi A3 (8P), VW Scirocco, SEAT Leon, Skoda Octavia, Superb and others.
