034Motorsport Audi X34 Carbon Fiber Cold Air Intake System (RS3 2.5 TFSI)
ML Performance UK is pleased to present the 034Motorsport X34 Carbon Fiber 8V Audi RS3 2.5 TFSI Cold Air Intake System for the latest Audi RS3 Sportback sold outside of the US! This intake offers horsepower and torque gains throughout the powerband, with peak gains of up to 14 crank horsepower and 10 ft-lbs of torque on stock turbo tunes, and even greater power increases with an upgraded turbocharger.
034Motorsport's engineers spent extensive effort to develop a complete cold air intake solution for the latest RS3 that yields horsepower and torque gains over the well-designed factory airbox, ultimately resulting in this beautifully-manufactured Carbon Fiber Cold Air Intake System.
034Motorsport engineers first created a CFD-optimized carbon fiber intake tube, which is a direct, high-performance replacement for the plastic factory accordion hose. Using CAD software and 3D scanning technology, 034Motorsport was able to maximize the cross-sectional area of the intake tube while being mindful of space constraints, including the factory high-pressure fuel pump and firewall.
The resulting part is a functional work of art - maximizing performance given the factory space constraints and featuring smooth transitions that ensure optimal airflow to the turbo inlet.
MINIMIZING INTAKE AIR TEMPERATURE
To ensure that the 034Motorsport X34 Cold Air Intake System draws in cool, dense air, the system includes a carbon fiber heat shield to replace the upper airbox. Bolting to the factory lower airbox, this heat shield allows the high-flow conical filter to breathe cold air from the factory inlet duct before the radiator.
Both the carbon fiber heat shield and carbon fiber intake tube are designed to aid in isolating cold, dense intake air from the heat of the engine bay.
OEM+ FIT & FINISH
034Motorsport carefully selected the carbon fiber weave on the intake tube and upper airbox heat shield to match the factory carbon fiber engine trim found in the 8V Audi RS3's engine bay.
The X34 Cold Air Intake System for 8V Audi RS3 was designed to fit like a factory part, and mates directly to the turbo inlet pipe and factory lower airbox to provide an OEM+ look.
DYNO-PROVEN HORSEPOWER & TORQUE GAINS
034Motorsport's engineering and development efforts were validated by dyno testing performed on Awesome GTI's Dynojet Dynamometer to ensure that the 034Motorsport Audi RS3 Cold Air Intake System provided substantial increases in horsepower and torque, even on stock turbo vehicles.
