Race Precision E90/E92 M3 Intake Scoops | Redline Motorworks

These are excellent modifications that add some power without removing too much cash from your wallet.

Air Scoops

RPi's Ram Air Scoops converts your factory intake system into a ram air type. Other aftermarket induction kits mostly suck in hot air causing a loss of performance. Utilizing the stock intake boxes, expect an 8-15whp gain with 70mph airflow.

Are these the M3 specific scoops?
Is the filter a cotton or paper filter? Can it be washed and reused?

The new RPi scoops (the ones we are selling) work on both the M3 and the 335i.
There were some old M3 scoops that do not work on the 335.

The filters are a fabric/gauze type and the original color is white. The red is from the oil.

The BMC filters can be washed and reused. They are good for 40k miles so you don't have to worry about about cleaning them anytime soon.

Any pics of the red scoops installed on an M3? Can you see the scoops through the grill with the hood closed? I have a red M3 and think it may look cool, not sure without any installed pics though...

I thought RPI made new scoops that are specific for just the M3? If these are the ones then I may pick up a set...please pm me.

Here are the instructions from RPi. No real modification needs to be done.

Here is a picture of them installed on an E90 sedan. They will show through the grills when the hood is closed. It would look bad-ass with a red M3.

The new scoops fit both the M3 and the 335i. PM on the way.

Do you have any pic of that but from a further distance?

I have Jet Black and at 1st I thought red scoops would look good. But after seeing that, it looks like a bleeding nose.

hahah that's one way to look at them.

Here is a picture from far away. Keep in mind, the whole picture is in black and white except for the RPi scoops to further accentuate them.



Here is a link to a thread where member UCSBMW posted pictures of the red RPi scoops on his white 3.

I have read some posts about the AFe filters rattling because the plastic on the filter is softer, have you heard anything about these filters rattling?

I have some sort of rattling. Was wondering if other experience it too.

I did the install for the RPI scoops today and the install was pretty shitty. It doesn't attach all the securely and there is a big degree of variance of how it will fit depending on where you exactly screw it in, since they don't have exact dedicated positions. Kinda cheap in my opinion.

Give us a call and we will be happy to take care of the problem or help you with a solution.

The install can be a bit tricky and although we install them the same all the time, it may be confusing to understand. Any feedback from you guys will always help us with making our installation instructions easier to understand.

Thanks for answering.

Personally, I haven't had any customer feedback regarding this experience.

Still available!

There is a little tab that folds off from where the outside/top screw goes in. The area is pretty specific once the scoop is lined up. Anyhow, please give us a call if you have questions. I would be more than happy to help you out. The scoop was made/designed on the dyno first. The shape/design made power but figuring a way to mount it was a bit tricky. We had to come up with a way to fit the scoop on there without changing the actual design of the scoop that made the power on the dyno.

They fit. I have personally installed over 50 of them. You just have to know how they are put on which can be a little tricky. Thats why the feedback we get from you is very important. I can go back and make certain parts of our instructions more clear.

Like a lot of parts, proper installation is crucial to ensure 100% satisfaction.

We will walk you through the installation if you are having any trouble.
