INTAKE

So I know there are only two intakes for the n20, the ER and the AFE and only one intake for the n26, the ER. Do you guys know if any other companies are gonna come out with intakes for the n26? I'm not too sure about the ER intake as I see no gains.

I was told by aFe a couple months ago that they are working on an intake for the N26, which will be out in approx 8 weeks.

Sometimes I question their dyno graphs, you see the graph for their throttle body spacer? 10hp / 7ft-lb seems a little too good to be true for this sort of mod, but who knows.


Gruppe M has an intake for our car but when it comes down to it, if the OE system is as efficient as can be, no real gains will be had from this mod. These days, manufacturers often do great jobs at OE intakes so only real upsides can be cooler air, a bit more responsiveness, sound, etc. rather than peak gain. There may be a potential system that can gain power but I don't think the intake is the bottle neck in the OE motor system.


I do want to pick up that aFe intake scoop though

I'm about to receive my AFE intake and the Scoop.
As soon as I get it installed I'll post a video of the sound.
The GruppeM intake is absurdly expensive for my taste... Very beautiful and give the engine bay a less empty space, but VERY EXPENSIVE for just an intake...
For now I have the car tuned, with catless downpipe, and with the AFE intake and the AFE or Eisenmann exhaust I'm expecting some more hp's to come...

I couldn't be happier with my aFe exhaust, intake and scoop! Oh and the BMS JB1 tune

Do you have a downpipe installed or just the cat back?!

I have a catless downpipe and was thinking how would it sound with the catback... I don't want the sound to be too loud

^ I only have the cat back. I like the sound that it has now, don't want it to be louder so I didn't get the down pipe.

I had a AFE intake on my E46 M3 and it helped quite a bit. Dropped my 1/4 mile time by .2 sec with the same 60 ft. time. Car went from a 13.16 107mph to 12.95@ 108mph. Both times the 60 ft. time was right around 2.0 seconds. I have one on my E92 M3 the Stg. 2 that uses the OEM airbox and it probably was only worth a few more hp than a drop in filter, but it sounds great.
