Agree wholeheartedly with this review.

What srtuck me straight away when I received the product was the amount of time and thought that has clearly gone into it. Right from the unboxing, you can tell this is a quality product.

Had the intake fitted and remap last week on my 139000 miler track day car.

Unfortunately Evolve weren't able to dyno because of Direzza tyres.

Took it to Brands the following day and car seemed to make noticeably more power , using self imposed rev limit of 7000. My best lap was 56.4 which I was quite happy with especially considering the number of slow cars about. Sounds great too !!

I'm very happy with the package.

Thanks for the feedback Dino - very interesting to read about the improvement you saw at the Ring too.

We have now dyno tested a fair number of m3s with the Eventuri and we have seen solid gains on each one throughout most of the rpm range. This intake is totally different from any other kit out there and as such it has a patent pending on the design. I specifically designed this kit for optimum aerodynamic efficiency in the given space and the theory has now been proven in practice over and over again.

Enjoy!

Hi Dino thanks for the write up. Question, how is the car behaviour and drivability around town? Ie low speed pootling around to the local shops? Any negatives?

No negatives whatsoever, it behaves normally at low speeds

This is one of the advantages of the unique housing design, it keeps airflow smooth and full even at low rpms. One of my biggest gripes with other intake systems was the sacrifice you made at low rpms for a bit of gain at the peak rpm.

Not anymore!

V interesting. The cone filter, is oiled matrix of some sort, wire mesh & cotton? Whatever it is, are there any options, eg paper?

I deffinately have one of these on my wishlist and after reading positive review after review it seems everyone who purchases one is more than happy but my only question is will heatsoak be an issue in the warmer months to come?

Either way having a vert i can only imagine how epic one of these would sound with the roof down

Heatsoak is not a problem as it has been addressed with the neoprene lined heat shields and Carbon air scoop which saturates the filter opening with ambient air.

This kit was developed last year during the summer months and during testing we achieved inlet air temps inline with the stock airbox.

911fiddler : We don't have any other options on the filter - it is a cotton and wire mesh type which is reusable.

Thanks to the guys at Evolve!!All fitted remapped...SMG software (loving the blip) during the work it was found that the MAF sensor was not working as well as it should have!! So as I had the MOT booked later, I gave them a call and a new one was fitted...also it passed no issues... The drive back 80miles roof down was bliss she drives like a different car..lots of noises from the front and the Milltek at the rear..cheers guys

it does not sound anything like a csl airbox, not even close. sound more like the stock setup only slightly louder.

always thought the e46 m3 sounded crap, it does not have the growl of the e36 s50b32 and i am not impressed by the weak eventuri sound either.

if you want a lot more power, torque and an amazing sound go for the csl airbox.

It doesn't sound anything like stock set up, for starters stock has hardly ANY sound to it at all. This DOES sound a bit like CSL just not quite as vocal.
