It hasn’t taken long for the performance versions of the Mk7 Golf to take the aftermarket by storm, and the latest tuning product for this justifiably popular hot hatch is the R600 intake, a cold air intake from the Wolfsburg fettling gurus at Volkswagen Racing. Rated to 600bhp and with more than double the surface area of the OEM equivalent part, the VWR intake has been dyno proven to deliver gains in bhp and torque.
A complete, one part replacement for the factory fitted induction tract, the R600 brims with the kind of innovative thinking that has become firmly associated with Volkswagen Racing in recent years. Twice the size of the VAG unit and based around a performance-focussed twin air intake design, the R600 contains a truly massive TriFoam ™ double-volume filter that’s rated to an equally massive 600bhp. This isn’t mere stat-based boasting from the engineering team at Volkswagen Racing, it’s a commitment to those customers that demand the last word in VW tuning, those that plan to wring every last ounce of performance from the MQB platform.
