APR Presents the 2.0T Intake Manifold Runner Flap Delete system

APR has just released a new product to improve the performance of the 2.0T FSI engine. The new upgrade is an intake manifold Runner Flapper Delete System for the OEM intake manifold.

The APR Runner Flap Delete System (RFD) is a motorsport inspired upgrade designed to eliminate airflow restrictions within the factory intake manifold. This product is for anyone looking to maximize performance on highly tuned engines.

The runner flaps are individual plates, much like a throttle body flap, located within the intake manifold runners. Unfortunately even when opened to the maximum position, the flaps still represent an airflow restriction as illustrated in the graphic below.

The APR RFD System fills the voids in each runner after removing the runner flaps. Each piece is precision CNC machined from billet aluminum on APR’s live tooling in-house lathe.

Simply removing the runner flaps can cause adverse running conditions during cold start. However through proper ECU recalibrations, APR’s able to provide RFD specific software for all APR software stages to eliminate this harsh running condition. This is a free software upgrade for all existing APR ECU Upgrade customers, however an installation fee may apply.

Power Gains: At Stage 3 airflow levels, typical results showed a decrease in turbocharger lag, more than a 10 ft-lbs of torque gain and more than a 10 horsepower gain.

Recommendations: This modification is recommended for APR Stage 2+ and higher modified engines.

Application: For all 2.0T FSI (EA113) factory intake manifolds.

    Is it possible to have the RFD software for the EA113 to be flashed onto the ECU from a EA888 to delete the run flappers on a GTI MK6?

    I have a blown flapper actuator on my Tiguan’s intake. Instead of replacing the manifold, wouldn’t it be better just to put the RDS in and call it an awesome choice?
