Eventuri Intake

Iíve been holding off on one of these for a while due to value for $$$$ but Black Friday sales have got them under $1100 delivered from UK

Anyone else in the same. This is your time 🙂

Damn. I saw this post too late. Who in the UK was advertising at this price? Normal price in Australia for a carbon plenum is around $A 3,350.

DBE, did you order one?

IND seems like the best price for the plenum w/ the BF code.

Thanks for reply DBE. ML seems good. Did you have to pay VAT? If exporting to Australia means no VAT, then the plenum is only $A 2,229 for Cyber Monday.

No VAT but you'll be hit with GST once it lands

Yes, 5% import tax; and then 10% GST on top of that for anything over AU$1,000 (or it might even be $900 now).

Ah missed out on this too. Always wanted to go with the complete Eventuri set but might go with just the intake first.

Anyone know what's the next best option now? ML Performance have the intake for $1176 so with import tax and GST comes to $1358. Still a decent saving from $1759 if sourced locally.

in my opinion their intake is a ripoff for the gain/look it offers. I got their plenum (as I was after the sound) and instead opted for much cheaper carbon afe intake from the US to match the carbon look under my bonnet:

it's like a day/night difference, and the best upgrade for the car in my books. plus you forget about the cost of it whenever you drive it

Would you say the plenum has a deep ditch?

Thanks I just wanted a first hand opinion. I found you tube sounds to be deceptive when exhaust shopping

FYI ML Performance have reduced their Eventuri prices by 10% as part of their flash sale. It doesn't show up on Instagram yet but the discounts have been applied to the listed price
