034Motorsport S34 Carbon Fibre Intake - 1.8T and 2.0T MQB EA888 Gen3
The S34 Carbon Fiber Intake for Volkswagen and Audi 1.8T and 2.0T MQB Vehicles delivers improved power, induction noises, and overall performance to the EA888 Gen 3 Turbocharged Four-Cylinder in an attractive, clean, and cost-effective package.
NOTE: This intake will only fit utilizing the GTI battery. This will not fit on AWD VW/Audi vehicles with the OE larger-sized battery. If your car came equipped with the Larger Group 46/H6 battery, you will need to switch to the GTI Battery as listed below:
- GTI Battery Part Number: 5K0 915 105 C or 000 915 105 DC
- GTI Battery Size: Size H5 / Group 47 61Ah 330A (DIN)
MEASURABLE PERFORMANCE GAINS:
There are several ways to quantify the performance of an engine system's intake, the intake being the air box with a filter that allows ambient air to enter the engine's induction system which ultimately leads to the intake manifold. Ultimately how easily air flows through the intake filter and air box assembly determines how much the engine is restricted as it ingests air to combust it with fuel, and intake that restricts airflow will restrict the amount of air the engine can take in, which limits the power it can produce. Optimally, an intake should pose no restriction to the engine, so that the engine can ingest as much air as possible to produce the power it has the potential to produce. Typically factory intakes do this well, but as power is increased, the factory intakes pose more restrictions and thus limit the power potential of the engine.
At 034Motorsport we express our intake performance in pressure drop, CFM airflow and a Horsepower and TQ test. The most reliable of these 3 are pressure drop and CFM as these can be discreetly quantified for any intake in a very controlled way that allows the comparison of various intake systems' performance potentials. The HP test is the most relative as it relies on many other factors that affect the power output of the engine including ECU tuning, exhaust modifications, turbo system modifications etc. Since the intake doesn't produce power itself, it only supports it, the actual power produced is always going to depend on the engine's performance and also if it has a supercharger or turbocharger system involved.
When you see 034Motorsport's accurately tested and advertised flow data, you can be assured that the intake you are considering has a substantively engineered flow increase to support your future power goals and activities.
CFM stands for "cubic feet per minute" of airflow, the higher the number, the higher the horsepower an intake can support, at 034Motorsport we design our intakes to have substantial flow increases over the factory intake, we test all our intakes at 28" of water (how much vacuum is used to suck air through the intake) on a Superflow airflow bench which gives us very accurate and repeatable test results. A stock intake that flows 200CFM may only freely support about 300HP, an intake that flows 400CFM can support roughly twice that power or 600HP.
- Stock Intake: 553 CFM @ 28” H2O
- S34 Intake: 908 CFM @ 28” H2O
PRESSURE DROP IMPROVEMENTS
Pressure Drop is the difference in ambient air pressure and the air pressure measured at the supercharger inlet across the engine's rpm range. The higher the pressure drop at any given rpm, the more restrictive the intake system is, reducing airflow.
