The Eventuri carbon fibre charge pipe. Made from 100% prepreg carbon fibre of the highest quality and workmanship.

VOLUME – FLOW QUALITY – TEMPERATURE are the 3 main design criteria which Eventuri sought to meet.

 1) VOLUME : Inlet Diameters – Eventuri 78mm : Stock 63mm. By maintaining the MAF section diameter from the intake through to the turbo tube we have increased the cross sectional area by over 53% for the majority of the intake flow path to the turbo. Clearly with significantly larger internal diameter sizes, the Eventuri tube encapsulates a much larger internal volume which de-restricts the flow path to the turbo. This allows the turbo to operate more efficiently and spool up to peak boost levels faster. It also allows the turbo to operate at peak boost with less turbine loading.

 2) FLOW QUALITY : Having just a large internal volume is no good unless the flow path also allows for smooth airflow to the turbo. By using high temperature Prepreg Carbon Fiber we have managed to achieve a smooth internal surface. In contrast, the stock inlet tube is made from cast aluminium which ends up with a rough internal surface. This coupled with the smooth curvature of the elbow results in a flow path which minimises turbulence.

 3) TEMPERATURE : The final criteria was to minimise the conduction of heat into the airflow. The stock inlet is directly connected to the turbo and so immediately conducts heat as the turbo spools. Our system uses a machined flange which connects to the turbo and then a silicon coupler with an integrated thermal spacer to keep the carbon elbow from having direct contact with the turbo. This barrier coupled with the low through-thickness thermal conductivity of carbon fiber results in less heat being transferred to the airflow.

 

This turbo tube has been designed to fit our FK8 intake with the updated V2 MAF tube.

To avoid confusion, we have decided to release the upcoming FK8 turbo tube with 2 options.

OPTION 1: The first option is for Eventuri intake system owners who have the updated V2 MAF tube and this option comes with:

Carbon Turbo Tube

Machined Turbo Flange

Silicon Hoses

OPTION 2: The second option is for Eventuri intake system owners who have the older V1 MAF tube and this option comes with the updated carbon MAF tube:

Carbon Turbo Tube

Carbon V2 MAF Tube

Machined Turbo Flange

Silicon Hoses

The V2 MAF tube does not reduce in diameter after the MAF sensor and therefore matches the diameter of the new carbon turbo tube - this will give the greatest performance benefit. The V1 MAF tube reduces in diameter after the MAF sensor and so does not match the new carbon turbo tube.

Owners who have the older V1 MAF tube will need to buy option 2 otherwise the turbo tube will NOT fit.

The difference between the V1 and V2 MAF tube is attached in the photos. It is very easy to see. The V2 MAF tube was included with all FK8 intakes after June 2019.
