GTV-VAN - elevated engine air intake for MB 447 Vito+V-Class from 2019 with OM654 engine and 9G transmission

It is extremely dangerous when driving through rivers, as water can get into the engine intake and cause engine damage. The bow wave, which pushes the vehicle in front of it, can be significantly higher than the rest of the water level. Our set provides a remedy.

This set provides an elevated engine air intake by moving the air intake from the front area (in the area of the bow wave during river crossings) upwards into the protected area under the windshield wipers. This increases the fording depth.

Suitable for Mercedes model 447 Vito/V-Class from 2019 with 9G transmission and OM654 engine

  • High air intake for greater fording depth
  • Relocation of the intake to the wiper box
  • resulting in less dust and cleaner air
  • cooler air and an additional high-performance air filter ensure a very good and clean air supply
  • original air filter and mass air flow sensor are retained
  • the original air filter can be removed if necessary to increase performance (e.g. in hot countries or in high altitudes)
  • Original intake path after air filter remains unchanged
  • Water drainage at the lowest point of the air filter housing is retained
  • Rather positive effects on the performance and torque of the engine due to better air supply
  • Only suitable for left-hand drive vehicles
  • Slight change to the intake noise: slightly sportier/more powerful sound
  • Only slight modifications are required for installation and a cut-out must be made in the partition wall to the wiper compartment
  • Apart from the cut-out, the installation is reversible and can be retrofitted again
  • No permanent external traces as with a snorkel / discreet installation
  • Weight: approx. 3.8 kg



  • Air duct consisting of high-temperature resistant, tailor-made silicone fittings and aluminum connectors
  • Additional high-performance air filter
