The ELEVATE Volvo C30 T5 Turbo Intake Pipe is engineered to provide maximum power and torque for the Volvo T5 engine. This is achieved by increasing both flow and capacity of the pipe between the MAF (Mass Air Flow) sensor and the turbocharger. The factory plastic intake pipe necks down to just 2.16" (55mm) and integrates a resonator section that creates turbulence and restricts flow just before the turbo inlet. Using mandrel bent, 3" (76mm) aluminum construction, our design allows greater and unrestricted air flow into the turbo, yielding more power and quicker turbo response. Our pipe has an increased internal volume of 41% over the factory pipe. A bright silver thermal coating reflects heat and helps keep the intake charge cool. The black plastic factory pipe absorbs under hood heat, creating a loss in power. All factory vacuum lines are maintained and are fastened to the Turbo Intake Pipe using the factory quick-connect fittings. High quality 4-ply silicone hoses (choice of Black, Blue or Red) and clamps are included to complete the installation. The Turbo Intake Pipe installs in about 30 minutes and includes easy to follow instructions.

The ELEVATE Turbo Intake Pipe works with either the stock air filter box or ELEVATE Air Intake (available separately).  Images of both fitments are shown.

    Follow the instructions and the pipe will slide into place perfectly with no rubbing issues. It’s a beautiful addition to the engine bay coupled with the Elevate air filter. After the install I took it for a drive around the block and I couldn’t believe the improvement in spool up and the sound from my turbo is intoxicating.

    Great quality product. From coating, to fitment, to weld quality on the vacuum bungs. SUPERB. Fast shipping to boot. Easy to read instructions and fairly quick install. Very happy with the product and price. I opted to stay with the factory box and run a high flow reusable filter. Quicker spool times, noticble sound change and more smiles per gallon. 5 star.

    I purchased this pipe and installed it with my new air intake from Elevate. It took me about 45 min to install and it looks great! More importantly it feels like it does increase the power of my C30 T5. I would always recommend this setup as a step to modifying your C30!

    Added the turbo intake pipe with my air intake when I installed the downpipe. Like everything else Don sells, the quality is without equal. Excellent finish, great flow, and a perfect compliment to an intake overhaul.

    If you like what you see/ feel/ hear from your air intake, this pipe is just an extension of that. It opens up the air tract, allowing the engine to breathe just that much better, and also delivers more turbo noises which is always a good thing.

    I did not pay attention at first and allowed the pipe to start rubbing. After some time adjusting it I got it set properly and no issues.

    This was my first modification to my stock C30 R. Absolutely noticeable gains in throttle response and spool up time. Fantastic quality and attention to detailed fitment.

    Great product, easy to install, follow the directions as stated and it goes in smooth. Looks great, nice improvement in looks and function.

    The pipe is good, but you MUST be sure when you install it that the pipe is not hitting on the AC lines or anywhere on top of the passenger side head. If you neglect to ensure the pipe is tight and not hitting, it will rub a hole in the pipe eventually and that means metal shavings in the turbo. Also, check it each time you change your oil just to be sure. I have been running mine for years with no issues.

    First of all, love the look, sound and performance advantages. I noticed the increased kick right away. Ok so install took about 2 hours but im not exactly a handyman. Couldnt figure it out at first but got in contact with somebody from here via email and they helped me sort everything out, amazing service. Gonna do the turbo pipe next, then maybe the upper inlet manifold.

    *side note* getting the old box intake out is the hardest part, it took me and a friend 20 min to pull the damn thing out.

    All in all love the part, love the company
