Following Eventuri RS3 8V system, Eventuri have updated the fitment to now include the 8Y. The RS3 8Y intake system caters for all power levels from stock to those exceeding 1000whp. This intake system has been developed to offer the highest possible flow rate whilst maintaining the lowest intake temperatures possible. Each component has been designed to provide the turbo with a smooth and free flowing path. The intake tube has an internal diameter of 103mm or just over 4"and has a smooth curvature from the filter housing all the way to the turbo inlet. The filter itself has been specifically designed for this intake and has a huge outer diameter of 210mm or 8.3"with a filtration surface area of over 130,000mm-2. The patented Venturi housing has been designed to provide the maximum internal volume possible for the RS3 engine bay space available and provides laminar flow to the turbo tube. Finally the duct seals the filter opening to the front slam panel but is not restricted by just the stock entry feed. Eventuri have lifted the front of the duct to now provide an extra opening behind the hood which is equivalent to an extra 7"diameter hole for the intake to draw from. The resulting system has the capability of flowing 840 CFM at 28"H2O while keeping intake temperatures at a minimum with the sealed design.
Performance Gain (RS3 with Stock Turbo): 15-20hp, 13-18ft-lb
Flow Bench Data: Stock Intake 530 CFM : Eventuri Intake 840 CFM
The Eventuri Difference
The RS3 8Y Eventuri system uses Eventuri Patented Carbon fiber Housings which provide an aerodynamically efficient airflow path from the filter to the turbo tubing. Not just another cone filter with a heat shield but a unique design which invokes the Venturi affect.
Flow Bench Testing
Eventuri conducted flow rate tests using a Superflow SF-1020 to measure the maximum flow rate possible at a pressure drop of 28" H2O. Tests were done on the same day in controlled conditions using the same test jig for each system. Eventuri tested Eventuri full intake system against the stock airbox system. The results show just how restrictive the stock airbox is, which Eventuri have managed to improve by up to 58% in maximum possible flow rate. Importantly this has been achieved with a sealed intake system so the intake temperatures will also be maintained at a minimum.
Eventuri RS3 Intake has been tested by various reputable tuners globally who have been building high powered RS3/TTRS projects for road and track use. The first set of results are from MSL Performance who tested Eventuri system on a stock 8Y RS3. Tests were done on the same day back to back. As can be seen, there is a measurable gain throughout the RPM range of up to 22hp. This gain even on a stock car is noticeable on the road with better throttle response and quicker acceleration.
