Revo Air Intake System
Volkswagen Polo GTI
The Revo open cone Air Intake System for the VW Polo GTi improves performance and offers an aggressive intake sound. Ensuring your engine can get access to enough air is paramount when increasing power; more air means more power throughout the rev-range.
Only Revo Air Intake Systems are specifically designed to work in harmony with your vehicle and Revo Software. Engineered to directly replace the stock airbox, pipe work and filter on the VW Polo GTi. The Revo System offers a high-quality open cone replacement complete with a heat shield to improve airflow and the performance of your vehicle.
- Increased performance
- +25HP at hubs & +30NM Torque
- Improves Air Flow Efficiency
- 53% Larger Hose & Inlet Volume
- Three Stage Foam Filter with Mesh
OEM vs Revo
When you begin to enhance performance, the restrictive OEM intake struggles to flow enough air, robbing the engine of power. The Revo Air Intake System removes these restrictive elements promoting smoother airflow. Open Cone systems replace the OEM air box to make space for the heat shield, filter and silicone hose which joins directly to the turbo inlet. Revo Flush Fit joins eliminate unwanted turbulence and increase the rate at which air can flow, ensuring maximum performance at all tuning stages.
The Revo silicone hose is designed to directly replace the plastic hose and rubber corrugated parts. An increased inlet diameter of 21% reduces restriction and promotes smooth airflow while an integrated wire helix reinforces the hose and prevents collapsing under negative pressure.
The machined inlet replaces the restrictive OEM plastic elbow and is designed to securely fit to the OE unit using locking tabs and integrated O-rings. Only the Revo intake kit features an inlet almost double the cross-sectional area. This means air can stabilise and distribute before a smooth tapered transition to the turbo.
Filter and Heatshield
Ensuring the engine has access to cold air is vital for performance. The Revo heat shield channels cold air from the front intake duct while partitioning the filter from the heat of the engine bay. The Revo Heatshield uses the stock mounting points and rubber mounting bushings to provide an easy and secure installation.
Research and Development
All Revo products are designed in-house and are rigorously tested utilising an in-house 3D printer, latest CAD and CFD programs, hub dyno and Revo data acquisition software. The Revo intake allows the turbo to run more efficiently, intake a larger volume of air and minimise turbulence to increase both power and torque, as highlighted during controlled Dyno testing.
An overall air volume increase of 50% over the OE part allows for faster and increased airflow. The carefully designed silicone hose has its own support bracket mated to a machined hose fitting, maintaining the correct position during engine movement. A constant taper in the hose ensures a smooth transition of airflow from the air filter to turbo and results in an increase in air volume over stock. Further helped by the machined inlet that matches to the turbo inlet for the ultimate in airflow characteristics.
Testing was carried out on a VW Polo GTI 1.8 TSI (6 Speed manual) with Revo Stage 1 Software fitted with the OEM system and then the Revo Air Intake System. With a consistent gain throughout the rev range, the Revo intake offered a peak gain of 20HP at the hubs and 20NM torque over the stock part. A maximum increase in airflow of upto +16 kg/hr gives impressive gains of 27HP @6100rpm and 30NM @4600RPM over using the stock intake system.
