Pipercross Performance Air Filters
Performance filtration specialist Pipercross has added yet more core VAG cars to their 3,000-strong model portfolio. The two latest Pipercross designs cover the 1.2 and 1.4 TSI Audi, VW and Skoda platforms.
Many models that run this configuration are covered, including the A1, A3, Golf, Leon, Polo, Ibiza and Fabia. Being small displacement engines, these TSi units really respond well to breathing modifications, with a panel filter and exhaust upgrade often being the first improvements that owners make. The Pipercross filter is designed to be an exact replacement for the rather asthmatic factory paper filter and uses multiple foam layers to allow up to 30% more air flow through to the engine, improving power, torque and drivability over the stock set-up.
As well as increased flow rate, thanks to its unique (and patented) multi-laminated open cell polyurethane foam construction, the Pipercross upgrade can actually filter down to a much finer rate than the OEM part, preventing any foreign particles from entering the induction tract, meaning even greater protection for your engine. This same construction means that the filter can also go longer between service intervals than even leading cotton-gauze filters, before needing to be cleaned.
Best of all, despite these impressive abilities, the Pipercross filter comes with a lifetime warranty and can be easily cleaned again and again for re-use, providing decades of faithful service and paying for themselves many times over.
