( CSF #8233/8233B/8233C )

CSF’s industry-leading reputation and deep knowledge of high-performance BMW cooling systems is second to none. CSF is proud to announce its new halo product, the “Level-Up” Charge-Air-Cooler Manifold for the 2021+ G8X M3/M4 platform. CSF set out to create a charge-air manifold that would not only match the S58 engine performance, but take it to a whole other level with its ultra high performance features and durability.

While the official release of the Charge-Air-Cooler Manifold is still about a month away (Oct. 1st, 2022), CSF is offering its first ever Pre-Order option!

Design, Engineering, and Development

CSF worked closely with its strategic manufacturing partner PWR and Local R&D Partner Studio RSR on the development of the “Level-Up” Charge-Air-Cooler Manifold. The relationship with PWR offers CSF access to exclusive cutting edge Formula 1 grade technology, while Studio RSR offers expertise in real world race experience and hands on mechanical knowledge of the G8X platform.

There are many engineering details CSF isn’t ready to divulge prior to the official release. However, there is still a lot of information to share and details to be seen.

Key Features

Billet Construction & PWR Core

The manifold is fully made from the highest grade billet aluminum. Each part is CNC machined with the highest precision and TIG welded to form a single air-to-water charge-air-cooler that is integrated into the intake manifold. The CSF manifold is not only capable of achieving the highest levels of performance of the s58 engine, but it’s all metal design is capable of withstanding extreme boost levels.

The ultra high performance liquid-to-air core is made by PWR. This Bar & Plate core is pressure tested to 120 psi to ensure it will withstand the high boost levels motorsports race teams can throw at it. Feedback from the community has shown the OEM core which is crimped onto plastic end tanks is prone to failure starting at just 27 pounds (psi) of boost pressure.

Fuel And Nitrous

Adding power always requires more fuel. Similar to the industries best selling B58 “Super Manifold” (CSF #8200), the G8X M3/M4 S58 “Level-Up” Manifold features a top feed port injection system. The intake runners have the injector bungs machined directly into them. The kit includes both the Fuel Rail and CNC Machined Block-Off Caps for non-use.

In addition, the manifold also has integrated ports on each runner for Nitrous or Methanol Injection. Individual ports for each runner allows for maximum control and tuning.

Pre-Order from Studio RSR – North America

As a development partner, sponsored race team, and premier local CSF Dealer, it was only fitting that Studio RSR was selected as the Preferred Dealer for the CSF “Level-Up” Charge-Air-Cooler Manifold Pre-Order offering. The manifolds are very complex to machine and manufacture (made in the USA). These complexities lead to limited production runs and CSF projects extremely high demand. From now until the official release, customers can reserve their manifold and avoid extended wait times in the future.

Pre-Orders will be filled on in the order in which they were received.

These orders will begin shipping around October 15th at about 5-10 Kits per week.

An example of extended wait times due to high demand was the launch of the B58 Super Manifold (CSF #8200) in August of 2021. Within the first week of its release, 60 Kits were sold, taking ~3 months fulfill back orders.
