The S85 V10 is notoriously sensitive to Intake Air Temperatures (IAT). They will suffer from heat soak with exposed filter designs and reduce power output.
The OEM sealed configuration is critical to these engines performance - yet it left a lot on the table.
Technology has moved on since 2004.
In 2021, Salman went back to the drawing board to design a new set of sealed V10 intakes.

Sealed to OEM standards.
The cone filter at its core.
Pre-preg & autoclave'd carbon construction.
Available in gloss & matte.
My M5 V10 fitted with sealed carbon intakes & optional stage 1 tune was faster from 100 to 200 kph by 0.8s time versus my previously stock times.
This is a simple DIY. Plan for 60 minutes.
4x carbon fiber housings
2x air filters
2x black metal clamps
1x filter for intake breather valve with 2x clamps and bolt
1x bracket for wiper fluid fill with bolt & nut
2x bolts for MAF housings
InfinityDesign's unique product design and engineering is crafted by the grand-daddy of the most popular S85 products and tuners to hundreds of S85s.
As a former Evolve co-owner, he took part in engineering the headers & e-tronic exhaust system, cat deletes, carbon intakes, v8 supercharger kits and tuning maps during the 2000s and early 2010s.
