The E46 M3 intake system is a result of extensive data logging, dyno testing and design optimization. Our aim was to develop an intake system for the S54 engine which worked with the stock ECU map and MAF sensor and produced a genuine improvement in the driving experience.
The Eventuri Difference The E46 M3 Eventuri system uses our Patent Pending Carbon fiber Housing which provides an aerodynamically efficient airflow path from the filter to the MAF tube. Not just another cone filter with a heat shield but a unique design which invokes the Venturi effect.
Performance increase = 10-15hp, 8-12ft-lb
The Eventuri E46 M3 intake system consists of a number of components engineered to perform a specific purpose and fabricated to the highest of standards.
100% Prepreg Carbon Fibre Intake Housing
Anodized Aluminum inlet cowling
High Flow Filter
CNC Machined MAF tube
100% Prepreg Carbon Fiber Air Scoop with CNC machined aluminum collar
3 Aluminum heat shields
High quality Silicon couplers with BMW specification hose clamps
Carbon Intake Housing Assembly Made from 100% prepreg carbon fiber of the highest quality, the workmanship on the housing is second to none. This encapsulates the filter and is mated to an anodized aluminum inlet cowl to ensure a smooth inlet flow path. The filter itself is a deep pleated, high flow double cone configuration which is dry to avoid damaging the MAF sensor. Finally the assembly is then mated to an aluminum heat shield which effectively shrouds the intake from engine bay heat and captures the ambient air being diverted from the scoop. Also notice the rubber spacer on the mount of the heat shield - this is for the headlight module to sit on so that it remains at the right height - small details are important!
Carbon Air Scoop 100% Prepreg carbon fiber with a CNC machined collar - the air scoop forces ambient air directly into the filter opening. This scoop simply clicks into place in the front right hand brake duct and effectively saturates the mouth of the intake with cold air. It has been designed to take up half the height of the duct in order to allow airflow to still continue through the duct for the brakes. The scoop is so effective that even after a hard drive, the aluminum cowl at the mouth of the intake will still feel cold to touch!
Carbon Fiber MAF Tube The MAF tube is CNC machined from aluminum and then anodized. The MAF boss itself is machined from an engineering plastic to minimize the heat soak into the sensor through conduction. We have incorporated a machined recess on one side to allow the OEM rubber gasket from the stock airbox to be used for a perfect seal into the stock elbow.
Heat Shields There are 3 aluminum heat shields. The main shield is part of the intake assembly as above. There is then an extension shield which fits onto the main shield and blocks hot air from the radiator. The last shield secures to the chassis underneath the carbon housing to minimize direct heat soak from the block. We used neoprene on the main shield to insulate it for optimum function in keeping inlet air temperatures as low as possible.
These components come together to improve the efficiency of the engine intake. The result - more power, throttle response and sound.
