2011-2014 VW Jetta TDI Turbo Diesel Performance Boost with AEM Short Ram Intake

AEM 21-763C air intake system

AEM replaces factory VW Jetta TDI components with a Dryflow reusable air filter, mandrel-bent aluminum intake tube, and an application specific air filter heat shield

The diesel engine’s dated reputation of being slow and dirty has hurt mainstream acceptance in many parts of the world, however Volkswagen has made it a goal to dispel these misconceptions. Volkswagen Turbocharged Direct Injection (TDI) diesel engines have helped sway non-believers over to the diesel side. The use of forced induction, usually with a turbocharger, has helped increase performance and acceleration while the introduction of direct injection has helped to improve diesel efficiency, lower emissions, and improve torque output. Simply because the main benefit of a Volkswagen TDI Diesel is excellent fuel economy doesn’t mean diesel performance should be overlooked.

In addition to quicker acceleration and a factory-like fit and finish, AEM short ram intake 21-763C will help save VW Jetta owners money with a reusable AEM Dryflow air filter

Advanced Engine Management (AEM®) has excelled in improving performance of turbocharged engines and doesn’t feel that small displacement diesel engines should be ignored. AEM Induction Systems offers a performance upgrade for 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014 Volkswagen Jetta 2.0L TDI Diesel models with short ram air intake 21-763C. An AEM short ram intake system is able to improve an engine’s efficiency by reducing the amount of power being spent on drawing air into the engine. Typically, the factory air intake tubing, stock air filter box, and disposable air filter is a significant point of restriction in modern cars and trucks. The stock components are particularly restrictive in cars with turbocharged engines.

The 2014 Volkswagen Jetta 2.0L TDI diesel makes just 140 horsepower but its 236 lb-ft of peak torque comes on at an extremely low 1,750 RPM

By replacing restrictive 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014 Volkswagen Jetta 2.0L TDI Diesel factory components with AEM short ram intake system, number 21-763C, the VW diesel engine is able to breathe easier. Less power spent on drawing air into the engine helps improve performance by boosting horsepower and torque with quicker acceleration as an added benefit. An estimated additional 9 horsepower and 20 lb-ft of torque was observed when AEM short ram intake 21-763C was installed and dyno tested on a 2014 Volkswagen Jetta 2.0L TDI diesel. In addition to quicker acceleration and a factory-like fit and finish, AEM short ram intake 21-763C will help save money with a reusable lifetime non-oiled Dryflow® air filter.
