034Motorsport out of Fremont, CA, develops and manufactures products for Volkswagen and Audi vehicles. 034Motorsport brought a 2012 Audi TT RS to the GP that was equipped with a 2.5L FSI, APR Stage 3 turbo kit, and 034 downpipe and exhaust. 034 stuck to the formula of light weight, small chassis, all-wheel drive and tons of horsepower, as you’ll see below.
Javad Shadzi, founder of 034EFI said, “We originally got this TT RS so we could develop products for it. At this stage, we have partnered with APR and have worked with them to push the tuning of its Stage 3 turbo kit as far as it can go. This is the first time we brought a street car to the GP. We don’t know if we can win all three events with this car but it represents what we can do with a very streetable, livable daily driver.”
Results of the dyno test put the team at the top of the pack with a final horsepower rating of 667.3hp and 567.7 lb-ft of torque. Team 034 packed a lot of power into a small street package.
