If the air cannot flow freely around the filter, it will be restricted from getting into it. Many aftermarket kits fit too large of a filter in an enclosure that cannot accommodate its size, thus choking the filter and reducing its overall flow. This often happens when a product is engineered for one variable at the expense of others. 034Motorsport conducted extensive tests and refined its development of the intake design to allow for maximum airflow surrounding the air filter, allowing for optimal airflow to, and through, the filter.The final result is the right size filter in the right size filter housing, creating maximum airflow and performance with OEM level filtering; the ultimate goal of any intake system. Be cautious of any intake that brags only of air filter size, without taking into account the detrimental effects of shrouding the filter. 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.
