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.

Surviving lockdown for car guys

We’ve put together a list of cool car-based content to keep you busy. From detailing guides, to crazy modified builds, there’s something here for everyone. 

Have a virtual car meet

Most of us are part of Facebook groups dedicated to cars. Whether it’s a specific model, make or just a local group, it’s the ideal place to start a virtual car meet. Ask the admins to arrange a time and date, then get the message out far and wide for everyone to post a pic or video of them with their car. We may not be able to meet face to face, but we can all get together to check out each other’s cars online!

Note: depending on the group you’re a part of, this could either play out very well, with lots of positive comments and friendly banter, or end up in a massive bun fight. You have been warned! 😉 

Plan your next upgrades

With time on your hands, now’s the perfect opportunity to plan what you’re going to do next. Maybe you can get those slightly tired alloys refurbished? Take the plunge and turn your daily into a weekend track toy? Maybe do some research to find the best ECU software to increase power? Now’s the time to ask around, speak to tuners and make a plan. 

Note: you may be able to make a start on some of the upgrades (see Fit Car Parts below)

Detail the car

Never got time to wash the car? You have now! So really go to town on it. Invest in a snow foam lance, quality cleaning products and give your car the detailing of its life. Our friends at Meguiar’s have some awesome videos covering all areas of detailing and car care, from applying snow foam, to using a DA polisher. Hit the link and check them out.

Fit car parts

Although most tuners are closed, many aftermarket manufacturers and suppliers are still offering a mail order service. So, with time on your hands, why not get stuck into the upgrades? From a set of uprated brake pads, to an exhaust or air filter; it’ll keep you busy and improve your car for when things return to normal. All Ramair kits come with comprehensive fitting instructions (most with detailed pictures), so it’s a straightforward process for any competent home mechanic. We’re also offering next day delivery, so you get the parts, when you need them.
