Performance Increase JCW GP3: 15-18hp, 17-20ft-lb
Fitment: 306hp F56 JCW GP3 and 306hp F54 JCW Clubman
The F5X JCW Eventuri intake system is a perfect example of our “Complete System” principal. It is a sealed system which ensures that the turbo does not draw hot air from the engine bay but enhanced with a functional bonnet scoop which forces ambient air into the intake duct. This duct has a larger internal volume than the stock version and also draws air from the stock location above the radiator. The combination of a sealed system with an air scoop results in lower intake temperatures than the stock airbox and avoids heat soak which is a common issue especially on higher powered MINIs. To ensure the smoothest flow possible we use our Patented Venturi filter housing which has an integrated MAF section for a seamless flow path to the turbo.
The filter housing comprises of our bespoke generation 2 filter, aluminium inlet cowl, stainless steel bracket and the integrated MAF section. The carbon pod shrouds the reverse mounted filter and smoothly shapes the airflow down to the MAF section which then connects to the stock inlet tube. This changes the flow path from the OEM airbox where airflow enters the front of the airbox, changes direction by 90 degrees to travel through the panel filter and then changes direction again by 90 degrees to move through the MAF section. Our system is a lot more direct with airflow entering the front of the filter housing and and moving into the MAF section without any abrupt direction changes. The result is a smoother path from the filter to the turbo inlet tube and therefore the turbo is able to function with less drag.
The OEM intake system draws in air from behind the front grill, above the radiator. The openings for the intake of ambient air are relatively small and therefore can lead to heat soak of the intake especially on a tuned Mini. The OEM bonnet scoop does not provide air directly to the intake and since the bonnet already has 2 cut-outs under the scoop, we decided to utilize this feature and redevelop the scoop. Our scoop is a direct replacement of the OEM part and clicks into place using the same fastening method. It features 2 inlet ramps which guide external air through the existing cut-outs on the bonnet and into the inlet duct (see below). As the car speeds up, more air is forced into the duct keeping inlet temperatures to a minimum and avoiding the heat soak issue. The scoop has a redesigned profile with a longer top surface to cover the openings which also provides a more aggressive look. Crafted from 100% prepreg carbon fibre, the scoop provides an incredible aesthetic to the vehicle. To further enhance the aesthetic feature – we used a V-shaped split weave with the carbon to give a symmetrical profile which works well as the scoop sits in the middle of the bonnet.
The Eventuri Difference
The F5X JCW Eventuri system uses our Patented Carbon fiber Housing which provides an aerodynamically efficient airflow path from the filter to the turbo. Not just another cone filter with a heat shield but a unique design which invokes the Venturi affect and maintains laminar flow conditions to reduce the drag on the turbo. You can read more about the housing design and how it works HERE.
Each intake system consists of:
- Carbon Fibre Venturi Filter Housing with integrated MAF tube
- Bespoke High Flow Dry Filter
- Carbon Fibre inlet Duct
- Carbon Fibre Inlet Scoop
