034Motorsport X34 Carbon Fiber Cold Air Intake - Audi S4/S5 (B9+)
Significant effort went into developing this comprehensive performance intake solution for the turbocharged 3.0 TFSI engine found in the latest generation B9/B9.5 Audi S4/S5. Subsequently, the X34 Cold Air Intake System offers discerning enthusiasts measurable increases in horsepower and torque, sporty induction and turbocharger sounds, and a beautiful carbon fiber airbox and inlet pipe design.
Throughout the development process, multiple designs were modeled, prototyped, and tested - all to ensure that the X34 Cold Air Intake System delivers measurable performance benefits and superb fitment. The result is a partially-enclosed airbox which uses the factory fresh air inlet duct and heat shield, while housing a massive 5" inlet conical air filter, and a matching CFD-optimized carbon fiber filter tube.

Dyno-Proven Performance Gains
The X34 Carbon Fiber Cold Air Intake System for B9/B9.5 Audi S4/S5 was engineered with performance in mind, and is a free-flowing replacement for the factory airbox and turbocharger inlet hose. As the development of this intake progressed, the X34 Cold Air Intake System yielded measurable reduction in pressure drop at the turbo inlet compared to the factory airbox, with a corresponding increase in horsepower and torque throughout the powerband.
Peak Horsepower and Torque
- Stock Intake: 401 Horsepower / 424 Foot-Pounds of Torque
- X34 Intake: 412 Horsepower / 425 Foot-Pounds of Torque
Peak Gains in Horsepower and Torque
- Peak Horsepower Gain: 19 HP @ 4,950 RPM
- Peak Torque Gain: 20 FT-LBS @ 4,950 RPM
Pressure Drop Reduction
- Stock Intake: Peak Pressure Drop of 2.22 PSI at 6,500 RPM
- X34 Intake: Peak Pressure Drop of 1.64 PSI at 6,500 RPM
Test Conditions: Dyno testing was performed on a stock 2018 Audi S4 3.0 TFSI using 91 octane fuel, piggyback, and 034Motorsport High Flow Cat.

Minimizing Unnecessary Filter Shrouding
034Motorsport focuses on optimizing every aspect of the intake system across a broad range of variables and compromises. A critical component of a high-flowing performance intake is the ability for air to flow around and into the filter. If the air cannot flow freely around the filter, it will be restricted from getting into it. Many aftermarket kits fit too large of a filter in an enclosure that cannot accommodate its size, thus choking the filter and reducing its overall flow. This often happens when a product is engineered for one variable at the expense of others. 034Motorsport conducted extensive tests and refined its development of the intake design to allow for maximum airflow surrounding the air filter, allowing for optimal airflow to, and through, the filter. The final result is the right size filter in the right size filter housing, creating maximum airflow and performance with OEM level filtering; the ultimate goal of any intake system. Be cautious of any intake that brags only of air filter size, without taking into account the detrimental effects of shrouding the filter.
