Lucky owners of Audi’s sublime R8 V10 can now improve the breathing of their everyday supercar, thanks to the new filter kit from induction experts, Pipercross. The Northamptonshire firm has created a bespoke induction set-up that affixes directly to the factory intakes, but more than doubles the surface area available for filtration. The foam used draws heavily on Pipercross’ BTCC experience, as the firm supplies almost every leading team on the grid for the 2013 season.
In addition to the vastly improved surface area, carefully selected multilayered foam within the unit offers 30% more air-flow than even the most efficient of OEM filters. As well as providing a far better rate of flow, the ingenious multi-layer design also filters down to a far finer rate, protecting the engine against damage. Each filter features a beautiful hand-finished MAF boss housing to allow the factory sensors to be fitted easily and directly into each filter for perfect metering of the new, improved flow.
The kits come lightly impregnated with a specifically-tailored oil to maximise filtration and flow, and thanks to a lifetime warranty, it makes huge financial sense – especially when you factor in the reasonable £222.00 including VAT price tag. Best of all, each kit is lovingly hand-crafted in Pipercross’ UK factory.
The Pipercross R8 filter kit provides a subtle induction ‘roar’ combined with a genuine airflow improvement, making it an essential enhancement for anyone running a V10 R8. Even if you’re not, with over 3,000 models covered in the range and almost all Audi models catered for, there’s a good chance they have one to enhance and protect your engine.
