think you're going to love them... the aural improvement is sublime...
and you can feel the increase too...

btw, one of my pals uploaded some vids of the intake and exhaust and posted by Ray33... hope you like a teaser taste... sounds much better from the driver's seat.

cheers

Nice work.

Would have been nice to see dynos with each mod added separately to figure out how much HP was added by the exhaust and how much by the intake.

At 7hp, I suspect most of this was due to the exhaust. The stock airbox looks very efficient and I can't see how the GruppeM design could really improve on it (bar sound)

i know what you mean... that was the original intention (to do 2 separate dynos) but... sigh...

the sound is pretty good though...

BMW-M-Mexico - glad you're enjoying the mods as much as i am. you're going (or gone) in a direction that i'm following closely. really like what you've done with your car.

there was a car show in japan recently (just this weekend i think) and many mods were on show. interesting stuff... i'll post the link if i can find it, cos my shop guy who went got photos that he took only.

of note, a side skirt add-on from 3D is interesting.

cheers

How much is the Gruppe M exhaust? Intake looks great, but I highly doubt that successive dynos would show the 7-18hp increase discussed earlier. I am thinking this increase is likely due to the filter in the GruppeM unit being less restrictive and not the design on the intake. Wait a few months, drop in a BMC or Streamline filter when it comes available, and I bet it would show the same increase as this intake for $2500 less. Very pretty intake, but for $2800 I will pass and much rather spend that money on an exhaust...

Yep, if you don't have the extra cash, I think your probably correct. But I'm pretty certain you wouldn't get that RAM air sound either.

OP or Mexico, do you guys have any drive-by vids of the GruppeM exhaust? The video on their website doesn't really give you an idea of what it would sound like out in the open. I had their titanium exhaust on my E46 M and loved it!
