The X34 Carbon Fiber MQB Open-Top Cold Air Intake System for 8V/8S Audi A3/S3/TT/TTS & MkVII Volkswagen Golf/GTI/R equipped with 1.8T/2.0T Gen 3 engines has arrived! We listened to customer feedback and this open-top design allows more intake tract sounds to be heard at a louder volume. Offering dyno-proven peak gains of up to 15 crank horsepower and 12 ft-lbs of torque on a completely stock vehicle, and over 30 crank horsepower and 25 ft-lbs of torque on vehicles equipped with Stage 1/2 Performance Software, the X34 Intake System is the ultimate induction solution for your Audi or Volkswagen.
034Motorsport’s engineers thoroughly evaluated the factory airbox design to create a performance replacement that reduces pressure drop in the intake tract, while offering OEM+ fit and finish. The result is this complete one-piece MQB Carbon Fiber Air Intake Upgrade, which offers 100% bolt-on installation without the need for any additional pieces.
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 Audi RS-model engine bays. The included cnc-machined billet aluminum-secondary air adapter and cap are anodized in black for a beautiful appearance and resistance to the elements. The 034Motorsport MQB Audi/Volkswagen 1.8T/2.0T Open-Top Cold Air Intake System 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.
034Motorsport's engineering and development efforts were validated on multiple vehicles using our Mustang AWD Dynamometer to ensure that the 034Motorsport Audi/Volkswagen MQB Open-Top Cold Air Intake System provided substantial increases in horsepower and torque on both stock vehicles and ones with upgraded tunes alike.
