I am currently doing the same thing with my K&N intake, but I use their cleaning kit. Wondering if the Eventuri filter requires oil or not.
The filter in the eventuri is dry. I'm not ordering another for probably another month. I'll ask eventuri what I can use to clean the dirty one. They have always responded within a couple hours to my emails.

Installed Eventuri two weeks ago. Love the sound and the performance. I have no idea what HP my car has but since putting on the Eventuri it seems to real get up and go. The excitement gauges both HP and Torque seem to kick up a lot higher than they use to before the Eventuri. Everything else besides the NM Eng Tie-Bar was put on a year ago. So from a seat of the pants review the Eventuri seems to me to have made a big difference.

I agree, it definitely seems to help the car breathe and doesn't heatsoak at all. Car pulls hard with it and the noise is great.

Drove though some pouring rain the other day with no issues again.

And an extra big Thank You to G26okie . When you said you had the Dinan Elite and had not thrown a code that is when I decided to commit to the Eventuri Intake. No codes for me and driven in the rain with no issues. Also a thank you to ESC Tuning for your excellent service on getting me the unit at a great price.

Does anyone see any issues with running the Eventuri with a different scoop like this one? I like the looks of the RSIc6 scoop more but am somewhat cautious about the larger scoop catching more debris.

The one thing that scoop wont have is the channels to direct the air into the intake like the Eventuri scoop does

Hmmm... you're right. That's the same thing Eventuri said in their message this morning. I wonder if you could cut holes in the bottom of the RSI scoop that line up with the holes in the hood. If that wouldn't work I guess I'm just misunderstanding the design on the Eventuri scoop and would need to see it in person as I can't find any pictures of the scoop in any angle other than the top or front.

The bottom shows up in this video:

Looks to have formed areas that protrude down to the rest of the intake, so just chopping holes in a different one likely would work, but isnt Ideal.

Yep, thats the underside of the scoop. Since the hood is hollow, those little channels get the air into the intake or it could get lost in the hood hollows. There are some pretty thick rubber seals around the intake "holes" to make a tight seal for the air to get into.

Thanks, guys. That's exactly what I was trying to find. Seems like I'll just have to make my own carbon fiber scoop... with black jack and hookers.

No change in my exhaust sound....you do hear much more turbo intake noise. Also, I’ve tried several intakes, and this is the only one that has visible, positive effect on heat soak. You can watch AIT drop on acceleration.

Yeah, no exhaust note change but it opens the turbo sound up nicely. A few posts up I have a sounds clip posted

There were no effects to the car while driving, even going into boost, no hiccups.

Supposed to hit some rain after work as well so will update.
I installed mine last night and in good WA fashion it's raining today. So I drove around for an hour on back roads and I-5 where the water gets kicked up by cars and turned into a fine mist. So the scoop gets to suck in a good amount of water on the freeway. I found water in the main channels and expected that. But I also found some small droplets just before the filter. Would you say that's normal? This was on my way to work today so I don't have time or tools to check behind the filter or the tube with the MAF. But it'll probably be raining on my way home tonight and I can check then to see if any water is making its way back to those parts. I doubt there'll be any water in those parts but I'm always a little cautious when a new part get put in.

I think it's just a little fine mist residue. I driven my R55-R61 ECS CF Intake in 2 hurricanes over the years and its fine. Got a fine mist in the back of the box past the drip hole when in the hurricanes. 99% of the time it never even made it past the drip holes.

I have the same thing in my mine when it rains, a little water isn't going to hurt anything.

That's what I hoped. I haven't noticed any issues so far. Kinda bummed about not hearing the intake noise much after swapping downpipes. The car is just so loud now and I love it.

I would go for non CF ,black plastic with all the plastic under the hood would be fine .

I love the setup of this system. Are there any other affordable alternatives with a similar setup, hood scoop, etc?

Arma does not have the scoop but its full CF: https://www.ecstuning.com/b-arma-par...e/pxv1-48~arm/

Other than that you are looking at Gruppe M, no scoop, but they have some other options https://www.ecstuning.com/b-gruppe-m...per-s-b48a20a/

I wish at least one of these companies came out with a regular black plastic version...Don't want to attract so much attention for the inevitable smog checks in CA

Also Duell AG and some others here: https://www.ecstuning.com/Mini-2014-...Engine/Intake/

Also, they are either open or they have a metal box. I dont know if you can get around the non oem look.

ECSTuning, are you going to carry the F60-compatible version of the Eventuri intake that won't have the scoop? Apparently they're going to have a blanking plate of some sort to cover the top holes where the scoop would go.
