The 034Motorsport X34 Carbon Fiber Audi MQB Cold Air Intake System yields horsepower and torque gains throughout the powerband. 034Motorsport carefully selected the carbon fiber weave to match the factory carbon fiber engine trim found in Audi RS-model engine bays. The 034Motorsport Cold Air Intake System fits like a factory part, and mates directly to the turbo inlet pipe and factory lower airbox to provide an OEM+ look.
034Motorsports engineers invested significant effort in developing a comprehensive OEM+ cold air intake solution for the EA888 1.8T/2.0T Gen 3 engine. Throughout the development process, multiple designs were modeled, prototyped, and tested, culminating in this elegantly engineered Carbon Fiber Cold Air Intake System. 034Motorsport engineers started by identifying the shortcomings of the factory intake system to determine which components restricted airflow to the turbocharger inlet. While the factory lower airbox and fresh air duct to the core support were more than sufficient for increased power levels, the factory air filter, upper airbox, and turbo inlet tube were deemed too restrictive, even with the factory turbocharger. 034Motorsport's mechanical engineers scanned the factory engine bay and modeled a one-piece unit to replace the factory intake tube and upper airbox. By eliminating the multiple couplers, transitions, and jagged features in the factory upper airbox and intake tube, 034Motorsport's engineering team was able to drastically reduce turbulence in the intake tract, and virtually eliminate pressure drop in the intake system before the turbo inlet. Ultimately, the best performing design was this fully enclosed unit featuring a massive 4 inch inlet at the air filter and a large diameter one piece intake tube with smooth transitions all the way back to the factory turbo inlet.
