    034Motorsport Res-X Resonator Delete for Audi & Volkswagen Models

    034Motorsport is pleased to introduce the Res-X Resonator Delete product line for a selection of Audi and Volkswagen Models.

    The 034Motorsport Res-X Resonator Delete unleashes a throaty growl that exudes the sound of performance and warns bystanders that this isn't your average Audi or Volkswagen. The new aggressive exhaust note is accomplished by removing the heavy factory resonator and replacing it with a ready-to-install 034Motorsport Res-X Resonator Delete.

    No welding required! This is a true bolt-in exhaust upgrade that eliminates the quiet factory resonator for a deeper exhaust growl.

    Enjoy a more aggressive exhaust note with no noticeable drone inside the cabin at a fraction of the cost of more expensive cat-back systems.

  • Samuel's Sepang Blue 8V Audi S3 with R460 Turbo Kit

    Sepang Blue 8V Audi S3 with R460 Turbo Kit

    Sepang Blue Pearl has always been an eye catching color, no matter which Audi chassis the color envelopes. It's elegant, yet bold, and can transform from a subdued blue to a vibrant hue depending on the lighting and environment. It's this very characteristic of Sepang that caught Sam's eye while driving along one evening in the east bay of California. Before this moment, he had been reminding himself daily that his next car would be an S3. Since driving one for the first time, he was hooked on the car's performance and knew it was "the one" for him. Close enough in size to his previous MkVI Volkswagen GTI, but with a substantial step up in the speed and handling departments.

    For Sam, even though the core of his being lusted after an S3, he was concerned about its size and utility for everyday life. He was used to a hatchback, with the ability to stuff the belongings of an entire Millennial's studio apartment in the trunk. In fact, he was convinced he would need more space, and had put a B9 A4 on order instead. It may seem all too rare in this day and age, but Sam was just trying to do the responsible thing here. However, on that fateful night in the East Bay where he happened to pass a car lot showcasing a brilliant Sepang Blue S3, reality struck him and he again knew his next car would be the S3.

    With no kids and the only potential for cargo being DJ equipment or his canine friend, there was really no need for a larger car. It was a realization Sam came to after passing by the Sepang S3 and made the decision to go look at the car as soon as possible. What happened next, well that's pretty apparent. Sam ended up snagging his dream car and has never looked back!

    Although the S3 is an incredibly capable and fun car out of the box, we have worked tirelessly at 034Motorsport to develop high-quality upgrades that enhance the driving experience and propel the MQB platform to the next level of performance. Sam knows we mean business when it comes to the 8V Audi S3, and right away opted to replace his existing aftermarket intake with our superior X34 Carbon Fiber MQB Cold Air Intake System. Engineered to be a complete intake solution, the MQB X34 is a one-piece design that has proven gains of 24 WHP and 20 WTQ on a stock S3! Beyond the power alone, Sam was able to experience improved throttle response and enjoy more of those intoxicating induction noises while driving. Not to mention it looks darn good under the hood too.

    As any of us can attest, the search for more power is endless among enthusiasts. After the intake was installed on his S3, Sam turned it up to eleven and opted for the 034Motorsport R460 Hybrid Turbocharger System. The Loba LO462-EA888 turbo features a machined billet aluminum compressor inlet, billet aluminum compressor wheel, re-profiled compressor housing, and clipped turbine wheel all in the name of moving more air with less effort. The complete package is no larger than the factory IS38 turbo dimensionally, which means this LOBA turbo blends in under the hood and fits without any trimming or "massaging." Simply remove the stock turbo, and install the LOBA unit with the provided hardware and gaskets. It's that easy. You'll appreciate the stealth nature of the turbo when the authorities politely ask to see under the hood based on the speeds you were traveling too. Ask us how we know!

    The real genius to the R460 Hybrid Turbocharger System is the tuning however. Fitting new hardware to the motor is the easy part. The hard work comes when calibrating the ECU to operate seamlessly with the new Go-Fast parts. 034Motorsport's Software Engineers took the time to ensure the R460 kit delivers consistent, reliable power in the most grueling conditions while maintaining everyday drivability for the street. Throttle mapping is significantly improved through the new ECU software, creating a smoother driving experience with precise part-throttle control. With all said and done, Sam's 8V Audi S3 is now making 340 WHP and 312 WTQ thanks to proprietary 034Motorsport ECU Performance Software and the LOBA turbo upgrade.

    Sam has been enjoying his R460-equipped S3 every day, and not once thought about the B9 A4 that could have been. Instead, he relishes the fact that he can keep up with cars costing twice the price tag of his Audi. Now that the power is sorted, Sam's next focus is the suspension. He intends to throw the book of 034Motorsport upgrades at his car, including the Adjustable Solid Rear Sway Bar, Billet Aluminum Rear Subframe Mount Inserts, Spherical Rear Trailing Arm Kit, and many others.

    Sam isn't a big car show guy, but he does plan to attend some track days and HPDE events in the near future to safely learn the limits of both the car and himself. When asked if he plans to sell the car at any point, he replied, "No, but if I did I'd buy either an RS3 or TTRS." It sounds like he's hooked on the MQB chassis, and only looking to upgrade from here! Given his appreciation for the 8V, we look forward to seeing what else Sam has in store for his sultry Sepang Blue Audi S3.

  • SummerFest 2017 | 034Motorsport's Dyno Day & Open House with NorCal Audi Club

    034Motorsport SummerFest 2017 Open House and Dyno Day

    Over the past few weeks the sun has been shining and the earth has been scorching. You know what that means, right? We're due for another Open House and Dyno Day! This July marked our 9th Annual SummerFest, hosted at 034Motorsport's headquarters in Fremont, California with the NorCal Audi Club. It's that time of year when we dust off the display shelves and welcome all into our Service, Machining, Manufacturing, and Shipping facilities. Believe it or not, this all fits under one roof too!

    B5 Audi Avant and Mk7 Volkswagens at 034Motorsport SummerFest

    Starting around 9AM on Saturday, July 29th the crowds began rolling in to stake out a good spot in the parking lot. Those who arrived early were rewarded, and as the day went on the spaces near the shop filled up quickly. By mid-afternoon, hundreds of Audis and Volkswagens had flooded the business park and made for the biggest turnout yet at a 034Motorsport event!

    Our in-house DJ, DeeJay JRL, was setting the mood and keeping the music going all day long while attendees flowed through the Service bay and customers brought their cars in for on-site 034Motorsport Performance Software installs.

    Meanwhile Gary Sheehan, 034Motorsport Director of Industrial Operations, was providing facility tours for guests to gain a sneak peek of what goes into building all of our Go-Fast parts for customers worldwide. The Manufacturing Department featured an array of 034Motorsport parts in various stages of assembly including our B9 Audi Front Strut Brace, 8J TTRS Motorsport Motor Mounts, B5/B6/B7 Upper Adjustable Control Arms, Density Line Adjustable Rear Toe Links, and X34 Carbon Fiber MQB Cold Air Intake.

    The 034Motorsport Machining Department had a showcase of their own, displaying freshly CNC-machined components and the tools required to create these precision Go-Fast parts from a single piece of aluminum.

    Outside, the heat got turned up as Javad Shadzi, President and Founder of 034Motorsport, fired up his three charcoal Weber barbecues to feed the masses. Seen here in his natural state, Javad has a certain zen about him when manning the grill and sure knows how to cook some delicious chicken, ribs, and tri-tip! After roughly 200+ lbs of meat passed over the three grills throughout the day, it's likely that nobody left hungry from SummerFest.

    As soon as the intoxicating scent of charcoal filled the air, a line formed almost the entire length of the building to get a sample of the famed BBQ.

    All the while, cars flowed on and off the dyno for a chance to see what kind of power they could put down on 034Motorsport's in-house Mustang Dyno. Here, Rory's 8P Audi A3 lines up for his chance to test the rollers with the 034Motorsport Turbocharged 3.2L VR6 powerplant. The sound alone was enough to contend his car as a crowd favorite.

    Audi Sport Quattro Conversion and B9 Audi S4 at 034Motorsport SummerFest

    Audis new and old made the trip out to SummerFest, ranging from Curt's Sport Quattro conversion to a selection of brand new B9 Audi A4 and S4 models.

    Later in the afternoon, spectators gathered inside the Service bay to escape the heat and await the raffle drawing. A first for 034Motorsport, those who attended the Open House were eligible to win some free shwag bags or a grand prize in the form of a $200 034Motorsport gift certificate!

    034Motorsport SummerFest Dyno Day

    If it weren't for the hardworking employees of 034Motorsport strapping down cars on the dyno, offering tours of the facility, greeting customers inside the shop, spinning music all day long, or braving the heat of the grills, none of this would be possible. I'd like to thank everyone who helps make SummerFest such a success year after year, as you're the driving force to such a fun and quality event.
