The 21-2113D-HK air filter features an oil free synthetic media and an offset hole to interface with a variety of devices

AEM is excited to announce a new universal filter option for the performance enthusiast with a unique need. AEM filter 21-2113D-HK (originally designed for use in AEM’s 21-764C performance intake kit for Volkswagen TSI Jetta, Golf, Beetle, and Passat turbocharged 1.8L and 2.0L engines) features a hole in the molded top of the filter to interface with devices on the engine that require clean air. The hole has a 1-1/8” diameter to fit Norma NW27 quick-connect accessories, including AEM part number 088012. The hole is offset to allow increased mounting flexibility.

quick-connect accessories fit perfectly in the hole in 21-2113D-HK’s top opening.

Maybe your custom ride has a crankcase ventilation line that is routed at a difficult angle for your high flow intake, as is the case of AEM’s 21-764C intake for turbocharged Volkswagens. Or maybe you have an air-ride suspension system that could benefit from filtered air. If you have a need for a conical high-performance filter that requires clean air access at both ends, AEM’s 21-2113D-HK has you covered.

AEM Air Filter Cleaner

AEM part number 1-1000 DryFlow Filter Cleaner makes quick work of cleaning AEM DryFlow filters so you can get back on the road.

Like many of AEM’s dependable high-flow filters, 21-2113D-HK uses a washable-and-reusable lofted synthetic media to provide incredibly high filtration efficiency, even immediately after the filter has been cleaned. Speaking of cleaning the filter, this media also does not need to be oiled. No waiting for the oil to spread out evenly to get full filtration efficiency; just wash with AEM’s Dryflow filter cleaner (part number 1-1000), dry (a wet/dry shop vacuum will speed that up), and re-install with the included hose clamp.

AEM’s 21-2113D-HK supports an estimated increase of 12hp and 14lb-ft of torque with the 21-764C performance intake system on a turbocharged 2.0L Jetta GLI. How much better will your application perform?
