Too often factory components sacrifice performance in an effort to appeal to a wide variety of customers. A performance enthusiast typically will want better boost response and more power, all while hearing the turbocharger breathe, a non-enthusiast may give up these characteristics for a quieter ride.

In the case of the factory turbo inlet pipe, mounted between the compressor housing and air intake hose, its purpose is to channel air from the inlet hose into the turbocharger inlet, all while reducing engine bay acoustics and sacrificing quality materials in favor of cheap molded plastic material. With the FKN Performance Enlarged Inlet Pipe, the factory inlet pipe is removed and replaced with our straight-through, high flow 6061-T6 aluminum inlet. This increases available airflow and turbocharger working sound by creating a larger, smoother transition between the turbo inlet hose and compressor housing inlet.
Designed for maximum airflow capacity and is designed to work in combination with OEM / OE-Location Turbo Inlet Hoses. It features a bead rolled inlet to keep your inlet hose secured during engine movement while under load.
Compressor Inlet Flange and features a bellmouth inlet design for smooth air entry into the compressor housing and is TIG welded to the inlet elbow tube. The CNC inlet flange also features OEM retaining grooves, it reuses the OEM sealing O-ring for a perfect fit and seal.
