The ECS Tuning 2018+ Atlas 3.6L VR6 Luft-Technik (Air Technology) Intake System is a premium in-house designed engine aspiration product that frees up intake restrictions (+32% CFM gain over stock) in order to generate more power (+12 WHP & +16 WTQ), while unleashing an intoxicating intake growl, along with blending automotive engineering into an artistic canvas of underhood beauty. Our system is constructed of premium materials and utilizes the most advanced development methods available to date. Our system is engineered to fit exactly like OEM with simple hand tools and includes all new installation hardware.
Our ECS Luft-Technik Intake System features a large heat shield, which utilizes the factory inlet scoop to direct cool, ambient air to our high flow, reusable air filter. Engine bay heat is kept off the air filter with our precision engineered heat shield and EPDM foam rubber edge trim which seals against the hood liner to maintain repeatable power delivery. Our cotton gauze, reusable air filter features a 3 5/8" bell mouth inlet to smooth incoming air into the factory mass airflow housing, which is then directed to our included Silicone Intake Hose for a direct, smooth flow path into the throttle body.
Designed and engineered in-house using state of the art 3D laser scanning and CAD technology for precision fitment
HEAT SHIELD ASSEMBLY
Precisely engineered to seal off against radiant engine bay heat and to swirl cool air back towards the air filter
Mounts to the OEM airbox mounting posts with new rubber insulating grommets and our sheet metal mounting bracket
Made from heat-resistant, vacuum formed polypropylene
Use of ABS vacuum formed materials chosen to ensure repeatable manufacturing, precision fitment and OE-like finish
Carefully selected textured matte black finish with OEM-like stippling chosen to match other OEM underhood plastics
- AIR FILTER - 3 5/8" conical, cotton gauze, clean-able filter element. Features smooth bell mouth inlet and a conical shape that maximizes filtration surface area. An 8-ply cotton gauze construction provides the best balance between airflow and filtration efficiency.
- SILICONE INTAKE HOSE - Made from 4-ply fiberglass reinforced silicone to prevent collapsing under high vacuum conditions. Features a smooth transition from the mass airflow housing to the throttle body for the least-amount of turbulent airflow. Designed to handle high engine bay temperatures and is resistant to oil / chemical degradation for long term durability. Includes stainless steel, smooth band "German Style" hose clamps.

Dyno-tested on our in-house Mustang AWD 500 SE in ground dyno on a bone stock 2018 Atlas R-Line we recorded significant gains found throughout the mid range to upper RPM power-band
PEAK gains of +12 WHP & 16 WTQ
Stock Intake - 234 WHP at 6,000 RPM & 231 WTQ at 3,600 RPM
ECS Luft-Technik Intake - 246 WHP at 6,000 RPM & 247 WTQ at 4,900 RPM
MAXIMUM gains (measured as largest delta at any point) of +30 WHP at 4,900 RPM and + 32 WTQ at 4,900 RPM
Flow bench tested on our in-house Superflow SF-750 Flowbench we observed +158 CFM (+32%) gain over the stock intake system!
ECS Luft-Technik Intake - 653 CFM @ 10" H²O
Stock Intake - 495 CFM @ 10" H²O
Our ECS Luft-Technik Intake System was designed, engineered, tested and quality inspected by our Research and Development team in our Wadsworth, Ohio facility. We strive for the highest level of precision and quality through leading-edge product development technology including FARO laser scanning for reverse engineering and quality inspection, SolidWorks 3D CAD modeling, rapid prototyping utilizing our in-house 3D printer and rigorous long term product testing. Performance data metrics are collected utilizing our in-house Mustang AWD 500 SE in ground dyno and in-house Superflow SF-750 Flowbench.
