So theoretically, this pipe adds ~10 wheel on top of that, alone?

Sorry for all the questions, thanks for taking the time to respond.

+10HP and +10TQ to the wheels on the roller dyno. I know EAS has my runs on file; perhaps they can post them

I believe the gain in power (IMO) was about 80% from the charge pipe and 20% from the larger and slightly cleaner filter.

I think the BMC gave maybe 2-3 WHP which is negligible but did add a little bit more induction noise. The MS Stage 2 at WOT sounds like it wants to suck in cats and small children.

I don't mind the questions at all; I prefer people actually realize there are more intake options when it comes to the E9x M3 than just drop in filters.
I didn't build it hoping for your approval, I built it because it meets mine
