034Motorsport is pleased to introduce the P34 Performance Air Intake System for 8V/8S Audi A3/S3/TT/TTS & MkVII Volkswagen Golf/GTI/R!
034Motorsport’s engineers invested significant effort in developing a comprehensive performance intake solution for Audi/Volkswagen EA888 1.8T/2.0T Gen 3 engines, which provides noticeable gains in horsepower and torque over the factory airbox. Throughout the development process, multiple designs were modeled, prototyped, and tested, to ensure that the P34 Air Intake System delivers measurable performance benefits and excellent fitment.
034Motorsport engineers started by identifying the shortcomings of the factory intake system to determine which components restricted airflow to the turbocharger inlet. 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 large-diameter one-piece intake tube with smooth transitions all the way back to the factory turbo inlet.
True Cold Air Intake
To ensure that the P34 Air Intake System draws in cool, dense air, 034Motorsport engineers opted for an enclosed design to prevent hot air from the engine bay entering the intake tract. By bolting to the factory lower airbox, this approach allows the enclosed high-flow panel filter to breathe fresh, cold air from the factory inlet duct before the radiator.
Performance Air Filter
The 034Motorsport P34 Air Intake System houses a high-flow panel filter with double-layer pleated cotton filtration medium. This air filter design offers increased flow and excellent filtration.
OEM+ Fit & Finish
034Motorsport carefully selected the textured finish of the intake tube and upper airbox heat shield to complement the factory plastic trim and engine covers. 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.
Dyno-Verified Wheel Horsepower & Torque Gains
034Motorsport's engineering and development efforts were validated using our Mustang AWD Dynamometer to ensure that the P34 Cold Air Intake System provided substantial, repeatable increases in horsepower and torque.

DIY Install Video for P34 Cold Air Intake on 8V Audi S3
The installation of your Mk7 Volkswagen Golf/GTI/R & 8V/8S Audi A3/S3/TT/TTS P34 Air Intake is a relatively simple process that will take approximately one hour to complete. You can access our detailed installation guide by clicking the icon on the left.
I ordered one of these and I installed it and I can say that this intake is a quality piece. Because the lower air box remains, it only takes about 20 min to install. First of all, it looks great with an OEM+ look under the hood.
For reference I installed this intake on an otherwise stock car. I can tell you with certainty that throttle response was immediately improved and the power band in the mid rpm's was much smoother and power gains could be felt. On a stock engine it didn't really feel like there were any gains at high RPMs. I was not expecting the kick in the pants when I installed this as I installed an Injen intake on my MK7 GTI and really felt no gains at all on a stock engine.
This intake is slightly louder than stock but no where near the volume of the Injen intake on my GTI.
