FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How much power will I make with your intake manifold?
Because of the unlimited upgrade combinations available, it is difficult to predict the power gains of each individual application. All Version 2 manifolds provide consistent HP/TQ gains throughout the RPM range, even more evident when installed on cars already equipped with K04 or larger turbo modifications. Tuning will be required to optimize the results.
I already have existing tuning on my car. Will it be compatible with your manifold?
For those enthusiasts already utilizing aftermarket tuning for their 2.0 FSI engines – your current software tuning can be retained. A CNC machined component is provided with the hardware package for code free performance. This component can be removed by simply asking your tuner for an RFD (run flap delete) addition. Custom tuning is available for those who cannot receive local software support for this manifold from their local tuner.
For TSI EA888 engines, refer to the next FAQ.
There is no RFD available for TSI EA888 engines, what do I do?
HPA can provide proprietary software for your vehicle. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with your vehicle information and mod list for more information.
Some tuners are able to create a resistor for the run flap motor to eliminate the check engine light
Does the check engine light for the run flap motor affect my performance?
For EA888 engines, there are no performance and drivability differences while the engine light is on for the run flap motor.
Do I need to modify my stock parts to install your manifold?
No! You do not need to remove, bend, or modify any of your OEM components to install our manifold.
What if I want to utilize direct port water methanol injection?
As one of the unique features of our Version 2 intake manifolds, additional surface material has been added to the bottom of each runner to facilitate direct-port water meth bosses without welding or further modification. Drilling and tapping each runner can be performed by HPA upon request.
How does HPA compare to similar parts on the market?
As the pioneer in the 2.0T intake manifold market, we have a proven track record of quality and performance all over the world.
