CSF has now brought a state-of-the-art CNC machined, high-performance Charge-Air Cooler Manifold to the B58 platform for Mk5 Supra and BMW models. This product solves what has been commonly known as a weak link of an otherwise impressive new engine platform. 

With the larger and more efficient water-to-air intercooler performance, lower pressure drop across the system, included fuel rail, kit for top feed port injection, and several other industry-leading features, the CSF Super Manifold will allow B58 owners to maximize the performance of their vehicles and push the limits further than what has been previously possible with this new platform.

The newer 2nd gen B58 engine, found in the Mk5 Supra, has already been proven to be an incredible platform for performance enthusiasts – taking the performance and motorsports industry by storm in just a couple of years since its release. In a short amount of time, performance enthusiasts have already started to more than double the stock engine output – now pushing through 700whp, 800whp, and looking into the elusive 4 digit 1,000whp mark.

The OEM water-cooled charge air cooler intake manifold for the B58 engine is adequate in cars with little or no modifications, but starts to really show an apparent weakness in cars that have bolt-on modifications, turbo upgrades, increased fueling (such as port injection), and performance tuning. Also, the OEM intercooler system has been known to suffer from heat soak in demanding racing conditions such as time attack, endurance racing, drag racing, and drifting, as well as spirited driving on the street. This can cause the car to pull timing out of the engine due to high intake air temperatures (IATs), and then can cause “limp mode” once temperatures reach a certain threshold, as the vehicle’s ECU will cut power to protect the engine.

Summary of Testing

  • Faster recovery of intake air temperatures
  • ~30°F reduction of intake air temperatures (IAT’s) compared to OEM
  • Less pressure drop compared to OEM core
    • Puts less stress on the turbo system, allowing more boost to be made at higher targets
  • Avoided going into limp mode after prolonged demanding conditions, simulating motorsports use
  • On a stage 2 car with bolt-on upgrades, making ~400whp, comparing dyno run 19 between CSF and OEM, an increase of ~26whp and 11wtq were achieved
    • The performance increase and delta between CSF and OEM will be bigger as power is increased in the vehicle

Individual Nitrous / Methanol Injector Ports

On the outlet tank, each cylinder runner has a 1/8th NPT port which can be used for nitrous or methanol injection (a popular power modification on the B58 engine). The CSF manifold allows for maximum spray control and even spray distribution throughout the engine.

Top Feed Port Injection with Included Fuel Rail

An extruded fuel rail is included with the CSF manifold. It can be attached to the outlet side of the manifold. The AN-8 fuel rail comes with feed and return -8 internal hex plug fittings from Radium Engineering for a plug and play installation.

  • Fuel rail aperture for each cylinder is an optimized 7mm opening for compatibility with most commonly used high performance injectors
  • CSF recommends using Injector Dynamics (ID) injectors for the best performance – the most commonly used injector for this engine has been ID model # 1050.34.14.14.6 (qty 6)
  • Anodized CNC machined injector hats (qty 6) are included in the supplied hardware kit to accommodate short height injectors aka “shorties”

Vacuum and Parameter Pad

On the side of the manifold inlet, CSF has included a 3 port pad into the machining of the tank. This can be used to measure additional parameters or as an additional vacuum source. These three 1/8th NPT ports can be plugged with the included hardware kit if they are not used.

Easy Access to Spin-Off Oil Filter With Counter Balanced Design

Imagine having to remove your manifold every time you wanted to change your oil, especially if your vehicle is used in motorsports where oil changes occur more often. CSF thought of its customer base during the design phase and have incorporated a recessed design towards the back of the manifold that for allows easy access to the spin-off oil filter. A counter balanced design protrusion above the recess was simulated in SolidWorks CFD software to ensure smooth air delivery into the rear of the core for the best possible cooling effect.

Air Inlet Divider

Another exclusive feature of the CSF manifold is the inclusion of an air divider welded into the inlet side tank of the manifold. With the length of the design, the engineers at VF Engineering wanted to make sure that the volume and velocity of air received to the back of the manifold to cylinder areas four, five, and six would be equal to the airflow passed through the front half of the manifold for cylinders one, two, and three. After extensive simulations in SolidWorks CFD software, an air divider was added to the design to ensure the best possible and equal cooling performance to each cylinder of the engine.

Breather Ports for Inlet/Outlet of Water Tanks

Two 1/8th NPT ports are located on the top of the back water plate. These can be used to measure inlet/outlet water temps as well as used as breather ports to help in the bleeding procedure to ensure all air has been cleared from the water system. 1/8th NPT plugs come included in the supplied hardware kit. Please follow OEM BMW or Toyota bleeding procedure which takes roughly 15 minutes to complete.

Hardware Kit, Well Thought-Out Instruction Manual & The Ability to Install OEM and OEM-Style Engine Covers

Included in the supplied hardware kit is several brackets, bolts, washers, and mounting posts to be able to install the OEM and OEM-style engine covers. This is an industry-exclusive feature to the CSF x VF Engineering design, and was extremely difficult to not only engineer, but to manufacture as well. An array of items come vacuum packaged with corresponding letters listed on an easy to use Bill-of-Materials List (BOM) along with exploded diagrams and a simple order of operation procedure list to follow for installation. Made with racers and DIY enthusiasts in mind.

Note

This product is intended for off-highway and motorsports use only.

Because of how technical and complex this product is to manufacture, improvements and changes to the manifold, hardware, and instructions are to be expected between production runs.
