After extensive testing we have found that the OEM compressor inlet hose is not rigid enough to prevent collapse during high boost situations where airflow to the turbo is most important. A collapsed hose creates a huge airflow restriction that robs your motor of potential power! This is especially applicable on K04 turbo upgrades where the increased flow causes complete collapse of the stock rubber hose.
Compressor Inlet Hose
Engineers designed a replacement hose of high quality silicone with wire wrapping throughout to ensure no collapse at even the highest boost pressures. We found that simply recreating the hoses in silicone, no matter the density of the silicone, still allowed a collapse to occur. The wire wrapping ensures that not even the slightest collapse will be experienced providing more air to the turbo via the larger diameter of the hose and smoother transitions unleashing hidden power!
