2012 VW 2.0L TDI Cold Air Intake Kits

April 12, 2012

If you’ve recently purchased a 2012 VW Passat, Golf, or Jetta TDI, often the first thing you want to do is add different TDI performance upgrades.  The engineers at AFE Power developed one of our favorite, their Stage 2 Cold Air Intake for 2009-2012 2.0L TDI’s.

Advanced Flow Engineering’s 2.0L VW TDI Cold Air Intake

This cold air intake kit comes in your choice of one of three different filter media to choose from, all of which are washable and reusable.  If you prefer a filter that is oil free, the Pro Dry S Intake is built from two layers of randomly porous synthetic fabric.  With five layers of cotton gauze material, the Pro 5 R Intake has the highest flow rate of the three filters.  Providing the highest rate of filtration with 5 layers of cotton gauze as well as two layers of synthetic fabric, the AFE Pro Guard 7 TDI Intake is a new addition that is sure to be quite popular with TDI enthusiasts.

AFE Stage 2 SI Cold Air Intake Install Video: 2008 Ford 6.4L Powerstroke

November 11, 2011

Parley’s Diesel Performance carries all the top brands of diesel intakes and diesel cold air filters like those from Advanced Flow Engineering, or AFE as they are commonly called.  Over the past few years AFE diesel intakes have become recognized as some of the best cold air intakes available.   Many AFE cold air intakes have an open or exposed filter element, but for certain vehicle applications AFE has designed an intake system with a fully enclosed filter.  A good example would be the sealed Ford diesel cold air intake for the 6.4L Powerstroke trucks built from 2008 through 2010.

AFE’s Stage 2 Si ( sealed intake) for the 6.4L Powerstroke shows signficant improvements in airflow and real power increases.  Dyno testing of the AFE Stage 2 Intake shows gains of 28 Horsepower and 54 ft. lbs. of Torque at 2000 RPM.  That’s a pretty significant increase in power to a truck that already makes big numbers from just adding a cold air intake system.  The increase in airflow is also improved by 41% over the stock airbox, pushing an additional 65 CFM (stock is about 160 CFM).

The AFE Stage 2 Si intakes also help maintain a factory appearance by utilizing a fully sealed commercial grade air box that replaces the entire OEM air box.  Part of what makes this particular Stage 2 Si unit so effective is the use of a built in ram-air scoop which forces more cold air into the filter area.  And last but not least, like with all true diesel performance intakes, adding a large, conical filter with pleated ridges increases the surface area of the filter, allowing for more air to be filtered more quickly.

S&B Filter – How To Clean Your Diesel Performance Intake

February 6, 2008

Diesel performance intakes are an incredible way to increase horsepower and lower exhaust temperatures.  There are two main concerns that people have with using cotton gauze filters.  First is that they think the oil might mess up the Mass Airflow Sensor. Secondly, that once the oiled filters get dirty, they let dirt in that will affect the turbo and engine in the long run.

As long as you keep your filter clean, and clean it with the precision oiling kit from S&B Filters, you wont have to worry about messing up your Mass Airflow Sensor because it will have the perfect amount of oil on it.  Shop Parley’s Diesel Performance for all your performance diesel part needs.
