awesome. To me the Gruppe M exhaust has the nicest F1 like sound. Instead of the deep rumble of some of the other exhausts.

Wow, that intake sound is wicked!!! Was the install easy or hard? Any hacking (drilling/dremeling) or all bolt-on? Thx!

I want to hear the intake under load, it'll sound sooo much meaner.

thanks for the kind comments. i'll try to get some vids or sound clips when under load.

some pics as requested.

installation details can be seen at this link
http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=136722

they are all-bolt ons. no cutting hacking or welding needed. the CAI took around 2 hours, cos the mech needed to figure his way around the new e92m3, remove the original intake before installing this CAI. I was there throughout and didn't seem that difficult. The exhaust was even easier... bolt off, bolt on...

cheers

ps. sounds much better in real life especially under load at 6k plus revs...

It looks cool but I'm just not seeing how it is going to be better performing than stock.

take a look at my other post...
the comparison chart was between stock and CAI+Exhaust on the dyno.

http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=136729

i'm guessing the CAI contributed maybe 2-4hp increase...?

What am I missing here? Does this thing really do anything for the motor?
i know what you mean but i honestly couldn't tell you, apart from the visual and aural improvement.

i had intended to do a dyno after the CAI was installed and before the exhaust, but we were running a little behind and the dyno mech couldn't fit us in at the appropriate time, plus my guy told me i needed some time for the ecu to "get used" to the new intake (and exhaust) before any change could be seen or felt. so the dyno results could be 100% as a result of the exhaust mod and nothing to do with the CAI... sigh...

a small point to note is that while you're right in that it's a part-for-part replacement of the OEM parts, the GruppeM main box appears slight smaller than the OEM box, and also designed to sit further away from the engine, and therefore further away from the heat. i'm unsure if CF is a better insulator of heat than the OEM plastic, but if it is, together with the design, could cause cooler air to enter the engine thereby allowing better performance...

unfortunate about the dyno, as that would have given us all a better idea of the "usefulness" of this mod...

cheers
