Power for every budget, and a simple upgrade path when you’re ready

The AWE S-FLO Intake Suite is available as the full kit with carbon cover or piece-by-piece. Start with the S-FLO Filter, later upgrade to an S-FLO Intake (“filter on a stick”), then add the S-FLO Carbon Cover for the full experience. Or, go full S-FLO Carbon Intake from the jump. The decision is yours:

The S-FLO Carbon Intake

For drivers looking for an intake that not only performs but also looks good doing it, the AWE S-FLO Carbon Intake is the one. The S-FLO Carbon Intake is comprised of three primary components: (1) The washable S-FLO Filter and (2) our high-flow, 4-ply Nomex®, fluorosilicone lined, steel wire reinforced silicon air tube, and (3) the 2×2 twill carbon fiber cover.

By deploying the fully enclosed S-FLO Carbon Intake, the ambient ram-air is drawn into the inlet and fed beneath the S-FLO’s carbon cover, keeping it cool compared to an open-element configuration susceptible to engine bay temperatures. Keeping this ambient ram-air cool results in impressive power gains filtered through the AWE S-FLO Intake.

The AWE S-FLO Carbon Intake includes the S-FLO Carbon Cover, S-FLO Intake, S-FLO Filter, and all necessary brackets and mounting hardware.

The S-FLO Intake

The AWE S-FLO Intake packs the same power as the full carbon intake, minus the carbon. The AWE S-FLO Intake is comprised of two key components: (1) The washable S-FLO Filter and (2) our high-flow, 4-ply Nomex®, fluorosilicone lined, steel wire reinforced silicone air tube. Together, it’s a free-flowing match made in heaven, allowing optimal flow geometry through the inlet, center section, and outlet of the tube, keeping things tight with our custom-molded lip for a perfect seal to the airbox.

The AWE S-FLO Intake includes the AWE S-FLO Intake hose, S-FLO Filter, and all required hardware for installation.

The S-FLO Filter

The S-FLO Filter is the largest filter that can fit within the factory air-box, and is also our bespoke filter of choice for all 4.2 S-FLO packages. The AWE S-FLO Filter is a proprietary, washable, dry media, large cylindrical filter that has been tested to allow up to 34% more airflow than the factory paper filter.

The AWE S-FLO Filter includes

The entirety of the 3.0T S-FLO lineup was designed and tested on AWE in-house vehicles, and are cost effective, incredibly attractive upgrades to bring the power!

Please note:  AWE S-FLO Intakes are for racing use only.
