Pipercross Launches Golf VII Performance Panel Filter
As iconic hot-hatches go, not much tops the dynasty of excellence that is the VW Golf range. The latest Mk VII version is the greatest example yet and shows VW’s sheer mastery of the art. Doubtless to be one of the great tuner cars of the decade, filtration expert Pipercross has been quick to ensure that enthusiasts and fettlists have a high-performance panel filter option at their disposal to enhance all engine variants.
Owners of any of these cars can improve the breathing of their engine thanks to this new, direct replacement panel filter, which drops straight into the factory airbox. The dry, triple layer foam used draws heavily on Pipercross’ BTCC experience, as the firm has supplied almost every leading team on the grid for the past few season.
Although designed with performance in mind, a useful by-product of this optimised induction is that, in most cases, fuel efficiency is often improved too, adding the VW range’s already excellent reputation for fast frugality.
In addition to the vastly improved surface area, carefully selected multi-layered foam within the unit offers 30% more air-flow than even the most efficient of OEM filters. As well as providing a far better rate of flow, the ingenious multi-layer design also filters down to a far finer rate, protecting the engine against damage. With a comprehensive lifetime warranty it makes huge financial sense, especially when you factor in the most reasonable price tag. Best of all, every one is lovingly hand-crafted in Pipercross’ UK factory.
The Pipercross filter kit provides a subtle induction ‘roar’ combined with a genuine airflow improvement, making it an essential enhancement for anyone running a Golf – no matter which engine it has. Whichever car you run, with over 3,000 models covered in the range, there’s a good chance they have one to enhance and protect your engine.
