BMS N55 intake still have idle issues??

Hello.

I am considering ordering a BMS intake for my all stock 2014 f30 n55. Mainly for an upgrade in sound.

I know there are a few threads about rough idles issues but these are mainly from 2015 and earlier.

Do these issues still exist?? Can I expect the intake to run smoothly with stock ecu and no other mods?

Thanks.

To be 100% honest you will never know until you install it on your car. Each car is different, some run fine others have issues with this intake.

If you have a JB4, it will run fine on your car (with MAF removed).

If you dont have a Jb4 get a closed intake or the CTS intake

My vote is to get the CTS but I'm biased

Oh man I wish I did research before trusting my tuner to put a Dinan cf cold air intake- it works fine. But when I close my window- I don't hear any sound- yuk And it costs 600

Ouch. Yea I was looking mostly for sound. But I'm sure the Dinan is a pretty solid performer.

I haven't really heard of idle issues recently.. Do you have the JB4 installed? With JB4 there is no issue.. Only if stock and running just intake.

since most people who say no issues state they removed the MAF and/or have a JB4, the answer is YES..There are still issues with idle and potential CEL

Well no JB4 installed yet. On the car for 8,000 miles, was the first mod I did. And no problems whatsoever. CTS Turbo intake.

The answer is Yes and the answer is it's hit or miss with no way to tell for sure who will have an issue.
