034 Motorsport - Audi RS3 8V 2.5 TFSI X34 Carbon Fibre Cold Air Intake System - for pre-facelift 2015/2016 (CZGA/B).

034 Motorsport is pleased to present our X34 Carbon Fibre Cold Air Intake System for the 8V Audi RS3. 2015 - 2016 Audi RS3 2.5 TFSI (8V) IRON BLOCK CZGB.

034 Motorsport’s engineers spent extensive effort to develop a complete cold air intake solution for the first generation 8V 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 Fibre Cold Air Intake System.


034 Motorsport engineers first created a CFD-optimized carbon fibre 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.

034Motorsport 8V Audi RS3 2.5 TFSI Air Intake Flow Analysis


To ensure that the 034Motorsport X34 Cold Air Intake System draws in cool, dense air, the system includes a carbon fibre 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 fibre heat shield and carbon fibre intake tube are designed to aid in isolating cold, dense intake air from the heat of the engine bay.

034 Motorsport carefully selected the carbon fibre weave on the intake tube and upper airbox heat shield to match the factory carbon fibre 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.

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.
