Airbox V8 Design

BMW M3 E92 inlet manifold’s design included the design of cover and body filter, elbow and its cover  and body of the airbox.

The main objective of the project was to improve the airbox performance by increasing the inlet volume.

Another requirements of the project were looked for, as an attractive aesthetic and the characteristic sound made for the pieces made in carbon fiber.

The result was very positive. The change of the original airbox by the new design increased 8CV the power.

Phases developed in the project

To get the result, technical know-how has been combined with design.

We scan in 3D the original model and we started the design from it. Improving the design and incresing volume of the airbox.

Ingeniacity registered the design in 2018.

As you can see in the video below, we ran CFD  simulations of the airbox’s interior air.

The design of molds was included in the project because our client make all parts designed in composite, mainly in pre-preg carbon fiber.

This is possible thanks to our know- how in composite materials and how they are made.
