Unitronic’s pursuit for perfection is applied even in the most minute areas of product design and in this case, Unitronic identified that allowing for ample tolerance for engine movement on an item that is both affixed to a dynamic engine and a rigid chassis. Rather than using traditional silicone for its hose connections, Unitronic’s Carbon Fiber Intake System uses a high-quality, extremely durable EPDM material for its couplers.
This offers a superior amount of flexibility over traditional silicone, while still offering, with its clever design, the rigidity and strength needed to support high-powered 2.5TFSI’s. Taking the design and engineering one step further, Unitronic’s engineers created a design that allows for smooth, laminar airflow on the inside walls, while maintaining flexibility through the means of a non-collapsing structural rib profile. Unitronic's couplers are designed to perfectly align with the bead rolls on the carbon fiber tubes, to ensure a perfect and seamless connection; hose clamp guides ensure perfect alignment.
