VF540, VF620, and VF650 custom designs direct from VF-Engineering

We're happy to announce that we offer custom manifolds directly from VF-Engineering. This means once you receive your kit, there's no waiting for your manifold to be shipped, then processed and painted, and then shipped back for assembly/install. You open the box and your custom manifold is pre-assembled and ready to install.

Because all of our E90 and E92 Superchargers use the same manifold, when you upgrade, you can keep your custom manifold with no hassles.
VF540 Upgrade made simple

VFE s65 custom 1-piece intake manifolds: Inside Technical view


We offer 2 options for texture:
1) Normal textured finish
2) Smooth finish

Here are some pics from raw to finished of both options.

These come already assembled and ready for install!

The Raw Manifold Prepped for Smooth Finish is very attractive.

Maybe just put on a Clearcoat, and put on car. I <3 the Stainless Steel Look.

^I was thinking the same thing when I was snapping those pics, and I've gotten a few emails and PM's about this version.

Here's a pic that I've been sending to those interested.

I personally think you guys could have done a better job on the manifold design :

But the paint work looks good

Just playing around haha...Thank you too, m33!
Just some quick insight..Our manifold design was primarily based off the functional ease of upgrading, universal application through all stages of E9x Superchargers we offer, and proper airflow through our slide-in heat exchanger. But yes, the exterior aesthetic design could be left up to personal preference; especially now that we're offering them direct.

Darn it I guess I should of waited..I kid. Another solid solid customer convenience/ service solution by VF!

Team there has been great and like you said function over looks. Although I still think it looks great and is beefy looking.

Still waiting and determining what to do with mine with regards to finish.

How has painting looked on the standard finish and can u do as much with the paint scheme like u can w the prepped finish?

The paint on the standard finish is just as good as the picture of the black standard manifold but in different color. As for customization, we've yet to have a customer do a full custom design on the standard finish.

UPDATE:

All-new Carbon Fiber manifold covers. Only limited quantities available!
If you have any E9x M3 VFE supercharger, you can add this to your manifold in less than 5 minutes. If you have a kit on order, add it today and we'll assemble your manifold with it!

As seen on VividRacing's VF620 E90 M3:
