Awesome lightweight carbon intake system from Eventuri brand — world known manufacturer of performance intake systems. Not only crazy outside appearance and highest quality carbon, but patented technology of high-flow air filters and air flow distribution. Bolt-on installation, cooler air at intake and improved performance as a result. And stunning look. What else do you need for your M140, M240, 340 or 440, BMW-guy?
Without any reservation and doubts — Eventuri has developed a great technical solution through extensive real world testing and airflow simulation analysis.
The intake system for BMW F-series with B58 3.0l turbo-engine from Eventuri is another example of “Complete System” principal. It demonstrates the perfect balance between allowing for unrestricted airflow with our open filter housing whilst maintaining low IAT by cold air saturation with our scoop and shield combination. Every detail has been meticulously developed from the prepreg carbon pieces to the double layer heat shields. This intake sets a new benchmark in design and craftsmanship for the B58 platform.
In order to maximise volume the airbox is made as large as possible with a recess for potential strut braces. The stock convoluted intake tube is replaced with a smooth carbon tube which is also larger in internal volume with a starting internal diameter of 111mm (4.4″) smoothly tapering down to match the turbo inlet. The tube provides a smooth path from the filter to the turbo inlet. Finally, for filtration performance Eventuri uses custom made high flow dry filter with a larger filtration area than the stock filter.
The filter housing comprises of a high flow filter, aluminium cowl, laser cut bracket, carbon heat shroud and the carbon pod itself, which extends to incorporate the MAF sensor and turbo tube. The carbon pod shrouds the reverse mounted filter and smoothly shapes the airflow down to the integrated MAF intake tube. This smooth reduction in cross sectional area invokes the Venturi effect where the airflow accelerates whilst maintaining laminar conditions. The carbon filter housing and the inlet tube have been integrated to be 1 continuous piece. This reduces the number of internal interfaces and allows for smoother airflow to the turbo. The diameter of the tube smoothly transitions from the required diameter at the MAF sensor end to the larger diameter of the turbo inlet.
The Carbon filter housing is mated to a carbon heat shroud and an additional aluminium shield which stop the convective heat from the exhaust manifold saturating the filter. This coupled with a comprehensive double layered heat shields combine to provide a very effective cold area around the filter opening.
The scoop was designed for maximum efficiency in directing the incoming air to the stock duct openings. It is installed directly behind the front grills to capture as much air as possible and with a continuous curve to the duct opening to ensure this airflow is efficiently channeled.
And finally, a lot of attention was placed on the heat shielding since the intake is located next to the exhaust manifold. For this a double layer main shield with a silver finish on the exhaust side and black on the intake side is used. The silver layer reflects radiant heat from the exhaust and the black layer absorbs and radiant heat on the inlet side. The air gap between the two layers acts as an insulator to stop the conductive heat spreading to the inner layer. The effectiveness of the shield results in low inlet air temperatures whilst on the move.
