Welcome to really quick product reviews, a new series where members of the FCP Euro staff quickly review various parts and kits in our catalog. This week, our Director of Motorsport Nate Vincent is unboxing and explaining 034Motorsport's carbon fiber air intake.
Let's face it, not all parts are glamorous. Bolts, gaskets, and other relatively mundane products are among the type of things you'd see in our catalog and scroll right on by. The 034Motorsport carbon fiber MQB cold air intake system, however, is not one of those things.
034Motorsport’s engineers thoroughly evaluated the factory airbox design to create a performance replacement that reduces pressure drop in the intake tract and allows for increased airflow. Not to mention, this particular example is entirely carbon-fiber which not only reduces weight, but actually keeps intake temperatures down providing more horsepower. The result is the complete one-piece P34 Air Intake System, which offers 100% bolt-on installation without the need for any additional pieces.
Did we mention it's absolutely gorgeous and complete eye-candy under your hood? Sure, it's functional, but looking this good doesn't hurt either.
