VS Motorsports - Macht Schnell Intake Review

As many of you recall we use to have a well equipped E92 M3 with many different Dinan Parts (Springs, Intake, Pulley, Exhaust) When it came time to build our car to SCCA T2 specs we had to remove and sell all of our Dinan Parts. Once we made the move back to NASA GTS-4 we were again in the search for go parts.

One of the parts that we wanted was a new intake elbow. Even with minimal gains we thought it was a necessary mod to get as much power out of our E92 M3 race car. After a few weeks of looking at different parts, Tom from EAS came to the rescue and supplied us with a Macht Schnell Stage II intake system.

When we received our intake system it was nicely packaged and ready to be installed.




When you take out the parts for the intake system, you can see it is very well made and very durable


And here are the pictures of the install








Overall we were very happy with the fitment and very happy with the product. We recommend purchasing this from Macht Schnell and very happy and thankful to Tom @ EAS.

So it fits, which is a good start... But what does it do?

It adds a couple ponies, which is nice if you're trying to squeeze NA power.
Also it sounds nice!
