Performance intake system for AMG 4.0l V8 M178 from Black Boost brand — world known AMG tuner and manufacturer of performance parts and intake systems in particular. Developed in real practice and on-car testing, product features bolt-on installation, cooler air at intake and improved performance as a result. And stunning look. What else do you need for your AMG GT, Mercedes-guy?
The cooler the air that enters the engine, the higher the power is, because cooler air is more dense, and having more air molecules entering the combustion chamber allows you to add more fuel, ultimately resulting in more power! Higher reliability is achieved also, as an engine running cooler is an engine less prone to knock causing detonation (pinking).
The Black Boost intake is designed with an airbox that fully isolates the filters from every single side and incorporates a compressible rubber gasket on it’s upper edge to seal against the hood, guaranteeing that once the hood is closed absolutely zero hot engine bay air can enter the engine. With many bends and edges formed to match the ultra-tight space available, the engineering that has gone into these assemblies is quite complex and in depth. Even we have gone the extra length to add compound long radius bends into the process of manufacturing the inlet areas, so the factory inlet tubes fit with a tight seal, assuring that no hot engine bay air leaks inside. This airbox is entirely designed in 3D CAD software, laser cut, CNC bent, and professionally TIG welded all by highly skilled craftsmen. Utilizing aircraft grade 6061 Aluminum, and finished with a highly durable and heat resistant black textured powdercoating, it is easy to see that staying lightweight, maintaining the lowest temperatures and also having the highest quality is Black Boost greatest concern.
Our intake tubes are made from aircraft grade and mandrel bent 6061 Aluminum, and are fabricated and TIG welded by our skilled in house craftsmen. They are also powder coated in a beautiful, highly durable, and heat dissipating textured black finish for a classy look. The real advantage to our intake tube over others on the market is the incorporated velocity stack which can be found inside the mouth of the filter. Velocity stacks are and have been used in motorsports for many years, as a means of smoothing out the flow of air entering the tube, resulting in a higher flowing design. With such a smooth and beautiful transition from the filter into the tube, air is accelerated into the turbo at a higher speed than would otherwise be seen, which results in even higher power levels, just because it is easier for the air to enter.
You cannot have the best intake without having the best filters, and the Italian made BMC filter brand is at the top of the filter food chain. They filter an incredible 7 micron size particle, factory paper filters can only achieve 10 microns. The physical size of our filters are the largest available from any company on the market giving you a significantly higher surface area for filtration. The particular BMC filter we choose to use is a twin air design, meaning there is an additional set of filter elements in the front of the filter, giving even more available flow than would otherwise be offered. When you consider that BMC filters are already the best, and additionally we are using larger filters with more surface area than any other company, it is easy to see why greater performance is the obvious outcome in such a scenario, as we achieve higher flow!
Do not forget that a personalized laser cut stainless steel logo plate is available on the product. BlackBoost icorporates company’s name, the information about the product, a serial number, and also the option to write who the intake is hand crafted for! If you do not want to write your name, you can write anything you want within the available space, this is your choice, and if you choose not to write anything this is also ok.
