034Motorsport Carbon Fibre Cold Air Intake System - RS3 8V (Pre-Facelift)

034Motorsport & Awesome are pleased to present our X34 Carbon Fiber Cold Air Intake System for the 8V Audi RS3 Sportback!

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. During the development process, many iterations were designed, prototyped, and tested, which resulted in this beautifully-manufactured Carbon Fiber Cold Air Intake System.

MAXIMIZING AIRFLOW

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.

Peak Wheel Horsepower & Torque with Stage 2:

  • Stock Intake: 440 Crank Horsepower / 543 Crank Foot-Pounds of Torque
  • X34 Carbon Fiber Intake: 454 Crank Horsepower / 547 Crank Foot-Pounds of Torque
