E92 AFE Air Filter and Air Scoop

Just installed AFE's M3 Replacement air filter to get 6-10 more horses out of my M3. I also installed their Dynamic Air Scoop which took all of 30 minutes - would have taken 15 if the front grill would have come out easier. But wow I can hear the air sucking from the intake on the hood. Too bad every time I want to fully test it could involve a police officer. I called them up and the car is going on the dyno next week to see what the dynamic air scoop adds to hp They also have a carbon fibre air box under development that makes use of the other hood vent.

Nice, I too just installed this afe combo and it sounds sweet right up to about 7K RPMS then it just sounds WICKED Nice add and be sure and share the news on afe's upcoming cf intake mod...will be interesting to see how they manage to incorporate the dummy hood vent into the intake tract.

I really do question the value the ram scoops (even though I did install them - can't help it mod junky) because since the functional hood vent is open most of the time - seems to me that the ram effect would be mostly negated and any extra intake air pressure is just flowing through. Now if one was to block off the functional hood vent - that might allow the ram air effect to work better??
