In my quest for improved induction noise I have been contemplating a Karbonius, but unsure if I want to risk failing MOT emissions.

I have bought a used ECU from CRMTech, so pretty much ready to order a Karbonius, although likely I would delay until the MoT is passed in October.

From what I’ve heard on YouTube, potentially the Eventuri could offer me 75% of the noise of the Karbonius with only 5% of the hassle of fitting a Karbonius.

Has anyone done this?

Is the Eventuri for the e46 different to the s54 z4M? - the z4M version is around £100 cheaper.

Thanks all

Interesting.. do you think it will fit? Would love for a more noisy intake on this car but still wondering which route to go

A previous post here suggested it was a straight fit at the maf end but no additional details. The kit comes with heat shields and reuses existing mounting points, so I think this is where there will be some work needed.

Z4M kit will fit to the MAF, you need to modify the heat shield to fit the different chassis.

E46 M3 kit comes with a carbon scoop, Z4M does not hence the price difference. Wouldn’t be overly useful for the E36 anyway.

Thanks for this

Presumably a straight fit, without the need for a stepped flange/adaptor?

Really hoping you will share a before/after video of this intake installed once you get there

Still contemplating a Karbonius, but will make a video either way

This videos mentions of the z4m kit on the e36 and makes 10bhp over stock. It's a video video about supersprint manifold but maybe there's more about the intake on the channel I didn't look

Thank you

Actually, is that @MattDear’s car in the video?

If so, did the eventuri improve the intake noise? Any feedback would be appreciated
