The OEM manufacturers spend a lot of time reducing turbo noise at the expense of horsepower. By letting the turbo ingest all the cold air it needs, the Alpha Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG Performance Air Filter & CNC Aluminum Adapter boosts power significantly. In addition, it allows you to hear the turbo spool up which is something you as an enthusiast can appreciate.
Often, aftermarket intake systems feature an open filter element which actually reduces horsepower by drawing hot air from within the engine bay. This may net you some power on the dyno while the hood is open and cooler air is available, but decreases performance when the hood is shut. By retaining the sealed stock air box and inlet design, cool air is still drawn from outside the engine bay – keeping your intake air temperatures cooler.The Alpha Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG Performance Air Filter & CNC Aluminum Adapter requires no cutting or permanent modifications to your car. It simply bolts into the sealed factory air box in 15 minutes or less.
CNC’d billet aluminum construction and an anodized coating ensure this piece will look and perform great for years to come. The smooth and strong mounting surface for the air filter ensures a tight seal. Couple that with a purpose built, synthetic high-flow dry media filter means you won’t have to buy those cheap factory paper filters down the road.
For added performance and aesthetic appeal you can choose to add our Carbon Fiber Cold Air Intake Duct and Air Box Lid. In an effort of cost savings your 2.0L M133 turbocharged engine comes equipped with a plastic air duct which is corrugated on the inside disrupting flow.
