    The last intake boot you'll ever buy.

    As our cars age, plastic parts fail one-by-one. The VR6 air intake boot is no exception. Known to fail in multiple locations, this factory part secretly cracks, killing performance. We're tired of repeatedly replacing the same faulty part, so we designed a permanent solution. Our VR6 Upper Intake Tube replaces expired plastic with heavy-duty mandrel bent tubing and silicone connectors. Our design simplifies the PCV system, fixing leaks forever without any additional hardware. The only side effect is a boost in power!

    Precision fabricated from 3" mandrel bent tubing, our Upper Intake Tube makes the turn from MAF to throttle body without affecting MAF position or contacting the strut tower. The key to our successful fitment lies in the bend radius of our tubing. We're bending 3" as tight as any mandrel bender can pull it. Bent tubes are trimmed and aligned on precision tooling where PCV tubing is added. Assembled tubes are TIG welded and bead rolled before heading to powdercoat.

    To finish the tubes we apply a Satin Black or Reflective Silver powdercoat. Silicone connectors, PCV, tubing, and hose clamps are added to complete the kit. We're using 4-ply silicone couplers from a trusted source and the same PCV tubing used in our oil catch can kits. Stainless steel inner-lined hose clamps hold everything together, protecting couplers while making the seal.PCV fix is not needed and will not fit with the the intake tube installed. The tube eliminates the plastic S bend that the PCV replaces.  As seen in the installed photos of the intake tube.

    Once installed, a test drive will reveal a noticeable power gain. We blame it on the smooth path we've created for the intake air as it enters the throttle body. We find part throttle tip-in delivers, while a noticeable bump in power can be felt during midrange and high rpms. How can we claim gains from a simple intake pipe? We've been building these intake pipes for years and have always found worthwhile gains, especially when complimented by an aftermarket intake. We're not offering miracles by any means, but when you're building an all-motor VR6 every little bit helps.

    Our Mk3 VR6 Upper Intake Tube is available in ODB1 and OBD2 fitments. OBD1 fitments allow connection of the ISV plumbing. All fitments include tubing and clamps to fix any factory PCV plumbing. All fitments available powdercoated Satin Black or Reflective Silver.
