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. Multiple iterations were prototyped in plastic using 034Motorsport's in-house FDM 3D printer and thoroughly tested. Ultimately, the best-performing design was a fully-enclosed unit featuring a massive 4 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. To ensure that the X34 MQB Cold Air Intake System draws in cool, dense air, the system is manufactured entirely from carbon fiber, and completely enclosed to prevent hot air from the engine bay entering the intake tract. By bolting to the factory lower airbox, this design allows the enclosed high-flow conical filter to breathe fresh, cold air from the factory inlet duct before the radiator.
The 034Motorsport Carbon Fiber Cold Air Intake system houses a high-flow conical air filter with a masive 4 inlet and double-layer pleated cotton filtration medium. This air filter design offers increased flow through an enlarged filtration surface, while ensuring superior filtration. 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 034Motorsport MQB Audi/Volkswagen 1.8T/2.0T 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.
