Eventuri B58 Carbon Intake System - G2x M340i M440i
Eventuri intake systems use a Patent Pending carbon fibre 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 affect.
The BMW G2x B58 Eventuri intake has been developed to provide the turbo with a less restrictive flow path whilst maintaining low inlet temperatures. Heat and volume are the main considerations when designing an intake for turbocharged engines.
In G2x models, the intake system is located next to the exhaust manifold which rapidly heat soaks the engine bay. High temperatures are detrimental for engine performance as the turbo would have to build boost with heated, less dense air and so the only way to ensure IAT’s are kept to a minimum is for a fully sealed intake. This however, results in a restriction with only one stock air feed to draw air in from.
During development Eventuri noticed an additional opening into the wheel arch area and took advantage of this by adding a secondary feed to the airbox. Furthermore the sealed airbox also has a heat shield with gold reflective to minimise the radiative heat transfer from the exhaust manifold.
In order to maximise volume, Eventuri made the airbox 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 a custom made high-flow dry filter is used which is ISO tested for filtration performance and has a larger filtration area than the stock filter.
Fitment for the G20 M340i and G22 M440i (models with B58 engine). The V1 intake system is required for models built before 11/2018 and the V2 system is for model built after 11/2018. Please refer to the information below and contact us if you have any questions.
Dual Feed Carbon Fibre Airbox
Crafted from Prepreg Carbon Fibre, the airbox serves 2 objectives - to seal the filter against engine bay heat and to provide a dual cold air feed. Since the airbox is positioned next to the exhaust manifold it is crucial for the filter to be fully sealed so we designed the airbox to encapsulate the filter and at the same time provide a large internal volume. To seal the intake tube Eventuri have designed a laser cut plate with a rubber sealing strip which secures to the airbox. The intake tube passes through the plate and the rubber seal ensures heated air does not enter the airbox. To further minimise heat soak, there is an additional heat shield with a gold reflective layer on the exhaust manifold side which effectively combats the radiant heat transfer.
Having a fully sealed airbox results in the problem of having a restriction for the cold air feed. The stock airbox draws air from a single duct which extends to the front bumper area. During development Eventuri identified another area to draw cold air from which was a gap between the wheel arch and the chassis on which the airbox sits. To utilise this feed they extended a scoop at the back of the design which protrudes into the wheel arch and can even be seen after installation behind the front wheel. This second feed allows the turbo to draw from a larger area therefore reducing the restriction.
Carbon Inlet Tube
The G2x B58 OEM airbox system was updated in cars built after November 2018 where the airflow sensor was replaced with a temperature sensor in the inlet tube. Prior to this date, all airbox systems had an airflow sensor and for this reason we offer 2 variations. The V1 intake which has an inlet tube to take the MAF (airflow) sensor and the V2 intake for cars built after November 2018 which use a temperature sensor. The difference in the tubes can be see below.
The stock inlet tube has a flexible and convoluted section to provide movement with the engine. This however also adds the possibility of turbulence in the flow path as there are multiple faces which can cause eddies. Eventuri replace this with a carbon tube which is smooth and also has a larger internal volume. Unlike most aftermarket intakes, Eventuri maximised the size of their intake tube. The OEM inlet tube has an internal diameter of 80.8mm or 3.2” at the filter end and the Eventuri tube for cars built after November 2018 has an internal diameter of 109mm or 4.3”. This equates to a massive 82% increase in cross sectional area over stock. The tube smoothly tapers down to the stock turbo inlet to ensure airflow remains as laminar as possible. The tube also has CNC machined fitting for the temperature sensor and the breather adapter.
Bespoke Cone Filter
The Eventuri cone filter is made from a non-woven mesh material which is double layered and is ISO tested to ensure that filtration is in line with OEM standards. The filter is cleanable and very stable at high temperatures with the base material being Urethane. The filter incorporates and internal flow guiding cone to help aid the airflow to converge while reducing the possibility of a stagnation point in the middle of the filter space. The filter medium has a significantly larger surface volume than the stock panel filter.
All the components come together in the engine bay to produce a genuine improvement in the driving experience as well as providing an incredible visual display of form and function in complete harmony.
The Eventuri G2x B58 intake system consists of a number of components engineered to perform a specific purpose and fabricated to the highest of standards.

Sean arranged a Quaife LSD for my 135i and I couldn't be happier. He advised multiple seals and bearings needed replacing unbeknownst to me so these were done as well. Now I have a more reliable car and one with tonnes more mechanical grip!
One of (if not THE most) professional outfits I’ve dealt with - in the auto industry or otherwise. Needless to say, all work was carried out as promised and to an impeccable standard. Thank you Sean and team - you’ve renewed my faith in the auto business!
I have used many mechanics over the years for the many different types of vehicles in our company fleet and southern BM is one of the very few workshops I can highly recommend. Andrew and his team are also really passionate about their work and it shows.
My first dealing with Southern BM was a pleasant one. I had some springs and shocks installed and Sean was a delight to deal with. Knowledgeable, helpful and offered solutions when not everything went to plan. I would happily recommend them.
The guys are great, definitely take your BMW there.
