X34 Carbon Fiber Open-Top Intake Bundle Audi TTRS & RS3 2.5 TFSI Evo



SKU: 034-108-1025

Manufacturer: 034Motorsport

Product Description

034Motorsport is pleased to present our X34 Carbon Fiber Open-Top Intake Bundle for the 2.5 TFSI EVO engine found in the 8S Audi TTRS and 8V.5 Audi RS3!

034Motorsport’s engineers spent extensive effort to develop a complete cold air intake solution for the TTRS and RS3 that yields airflow and pressure drop gains over the well-designed factory airbox, which can lead to higher horsepower and torque gains in applications that require higher airflow, like upgraded turbos. During the development process, many iterations were designed, prototyped, and tested, which resulted in this beautifully-manufactured Carbon Fiber Cold Air Intake System that flows better than no intake at all.

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 optimize the cross-sectional area of the intake tube while being mindful of space constraints. 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 Open-Top Cold Air Intake System draws in cool, dense air, the system includes a carbon fiber heat shield to replace the upper airbox as well as a stainless steel heat shield to block heat from saturating the intake tube. The upper carbon fiber heat shield bolts to the factory lower airbox, allowing the high-flow conical filter to breathe cold air from the factory inlet duct before the radiator. The stainless steel heat shield bolts to the stock intake tube mounting point and to the back of the head, preventing the high temperatures from the exhaust header and turbo from radiating directly at the intake tube. Both heat shields work together to minimize pre-turbo intake air temperature.

Performance Air Filter

The 034Motorsport Carbon Fiber Open-Top Cold Air Intake system houses a high-flow conical air filter with double-layer pleated cotton filtration medium. This air filter design offers increased flow through an enlarged filtration surface, while ensuring superior filtration.

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 Audi TTRS & RS3 2.5 TFSI engine bay. The 034Motorsport Audi TTRS & RS3 X34 Carbon Fiber Open-Top Intake Bundle Cold Air Intake System was designed to fit like a factory part, and mates directly using factory provisions to provide an OEM+ look.

X34 Carbon Fiber Fresh Air Duct and Lower Airbox Pressure Drop Improvements

Pressure Drop is the difference in ambient air pressure and the air pressure measured at the turbo inlet across the engine's rpm range. The higher the pressure drop at any given rpm, the more restrictive the intake system is, reducing airflow.
