The range of VWR High-Flow Panel Air Filters replaces the restrictive factory paper filters with an improved, high flow and reusable lifetime foam filter. The VWR Panel Filter is one of the most cost-effective enhancements you can make to allow the engine to breathe better and operate more efficiently - improving engine efficiency, and hence power and fuel economy. By removing the inevitable restrictions that the standard paper panel filter gives, the VWR Panel Filter allows a significant increase in airflow through to the turbo.
The filter is composed of TriFoam™ triple-layer laminate of open-cell polyurethane foam, which gives an exceptionally high level of filtration to protect the engine from contaminants in the air down to well below 5 microns, giving the highest level of filtration to protect the engine.
With this extra airflow, our tests have shown that the fitment of the VWR Panel Filter can deliver an additional 15NM of torque on a standard 2.0TSI engine, thus making a small but worthwhile difference to the feeling of mid-range power of the car.
