Happy Thursday! While it's not RS5-related, I had the time to post a quick behind-the-scenes look at the development of the Audi TT RS Cold Air Intake System on our blog yesterday. If you're interested in what goes into making your performance parts, it's worth a read! :)

Developing the Audi TT RS Carbon Fiber Intake System



Ever wonder what goes into the design, prototyping, and testing of a performance cold air intake? Take a behind-the-scenes look at the process used by 034Motorsport engineers in this Tech Article: Developing the Audi TT RS Carbon Fiber Intake System

The days of merely replacing the factory airbox with some piping and a generic cone filter and seeing performance improvements are long gone - in fact, many so-called "cold air" intakes are detrimental to performance under actual driving conditions.

While there is often room left to improve on the factory design, it requires a thorough analysis of the factory components, and an OEM+ engineering mindset.
