Mercedes-Benz A45/CLA45/GLA45 AMG Air Filter & CNC Aluminum Adapter by Alpha Performance
The OEM manufacturers spend a lot of time reducing turbo noise at the expense of horsepower. By letting the turbo ingest all of the cold air it needs the Alpha Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG Performance Air Intake boosts power significantly. In addition, it allows you to hear the turbo spool up which is something you as an enthusiast can appreciate.
Our engineering team immediately noticed a considerable level of restriction in the intake system and solved the problem by designing a smooth transition to a much larger filter. By upgrading the size of your 2.6″ factory inlet filter to a robust 4″ design, we drastically reduced the high pressure drop – a sure indicator that your stock intake filter is choking your 2.0L M133 turbocharged engine. By simply installing this Air Intake Upgrade, you’ll be rewarded with a 20+HP increase with just this simple modification alone!
Often, aftermarket intake systems feature an open air filter element which reduces horsepower by drawing hot air from within the engine bay. This may net you some power on the dyno while the hood is open and cooler air is available, but decreases performance when the hood is shut. By taking full advantage of cool outside air provided by the sealed air box, you reap the benefit of maximum power as you fly through the gears of your Speedshift DCT 7-speed transmission.
CNC’d billet aluminum construction and an anodized coating ensure this piece will look and perform great for years to come. The smooth and strong mounting surface for the air filter ensures a tight seal. Couple that with a purpose built, synthetic high-flow dry media filter means you won’t have to buy those cheap factory paper filters down the road. Simply remove and blow off the filter with compressed air periodically or wash out and let it dry. No messy oils or special chemicals needed.
