The ELEVATE Volvo V50 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.

Perfect Fit Review by Corky
We installed the Elevate T5 Performance Turbo Intake Pipe with the Elevate V50 T5 Performance Air Intake filter. You could feel the improvement in the throttle response immediately as you drove the car, Plus when you open the hood everyone will marvel at what a great looking air intake system your vehicle has. With the air box removed and the ECM relocated doing oil changes is a lot easier now the you can get to the oil filter. (Posted on 4/13/2016)
