Just received aFe Intake and Scorcher for 320i

I recently purchased my first BMW, a 2013 320i with the sport package. I was really excited to bump up the horsepower to near 328 levels, so I purchased the aFe intake and scorcher module from Turner Motorsports.

The package together was $699 with free shipping, seemed like a good deal at the time.

I've had the box for a week now in my garage, but am seeing so many threads on here about the BMS stage 1 module and the new Injen intake. I'm sure there is not much difference between all of the combinations, just need the time away from the office to do the install.

I'll take pictures and give my impressions when I get these on over the weekend!

The AFE/Scorcher package works. A buddy has it and the differences were noticeable.

Thanks, I think I'll go ahead with it. For the most part it seems to relatively safe, reliable and cheap power.

The Scorcher is literally a 5 minute install and it makes a very noticeable difference. Do it!

Wow. Just installed. The MAP sensor was seriously difficult to get off. I eventually took off the engine cover so I could get a small flat head screwdriver to lift up the tab. Using my thumb on the bottom of the tab really just did nothing.

Once I got the MAP sensor loose, the TMAP sensor was a snap. Got the module installed and secured no problem.

The car started right up, set the clock from having disconnected the negative terminal.

Took the car out for a spin, incredible difference. I still need to install the aFe intake, but it was like a complete different car. Hopefully will be safe and reliable!

Thanks, Mike. I appreciate it. So far, so good! Going to tackle the intake next. Would like to pick up the aFe intake scoop, do you stock those by chance?
