N55 Carbon Fiber Cold Air Intake
for F22 M235i, F3x 335i and F3x 435i


Available May 8th, 2015. Pre-order yours today!

Due to high demand and production limitations this product is highly susceptible to a back order. We are working as quickly as possible to increase production capabilities and fulfill orders but please be aware there may be delays in shipping.


Efficiency and maximizing the potential of the stock intake design were the keys to development for this N55 intake. Our sealed system delivers as much cold outside air as possible to the engine via an optimized carbon fiber tube that mimics the stock pipe but with less resistance with a straighter freer flowing design. The increased amount of air feeds into a larger volume air box complete with a larger filter that elicits a sporty tone that makes the intake sound as good as it performs. This optimized design yields an incredible 10 HP and 15 lb-ft of torque even without any additional modifications. Simply perform the short bolt-on installation in under an hour and enjoy a more powerful and audibly satisfying driving experience.

View the product page HERE for pricing and ordering information.

Benefits of the Dinan Carbon Fiber High Flow Air Intake for the F22 M235i, F30/34 335i and F32/33/36 435i:
  • More Power: +10 HP & +15 lb-ft of torque without additional modifications
  • Even more power can be achieved when combined with the DINANTRONICS Performance Tuner and exhaust. Consult the applicable DINANTRONICS product page for details.
  • Sportier Sound
  • Larger volume air box that completely seals
  • Optimized carbon fiber intake tube
  • Larger cylindrical air filter
  • Larger MAF
  • Quick and easy installation

Stage 2 DINANTRONICS Performance Tuner
For the F30 335i F32/33 435i F22 M235i


With the release of the cold air intake for select N55 engines stage 2 DINANTRONICS is now possible on those select models. The combination of the tuner, exhaust, and intake provides less restrictive air flow and ultimately unlocks tremendous power that can only be described as "awe inspiring". Capping out at 382 HP and 455 lb-ft of torque on the M235i and certain MPPK (M Performance Power Kit) models the transformation stage 2 can have on your car is overwhelming. After all an increase of ~20 HP and 25 lb-ft of torque over stage 1 is hard to ignore.

Below are a few iterations of the performance graphs but just like their stage 1 counterparts on these models there are a great deal of variation so please consult the appropriate product page to get the exact numbers of the vehicle in question.

Remember that if you already have stage 1 installed you will only be required to pay the difference from stage 1 to stage 2 which is $250.

It is compatible with all MPPK variations. Consult the Dinan website for your particular scenario. There are too many variations on the 335i to include all the graphs considering it differs by MPPK, wastegate and transmission as well. I simply included a sampling of the variations above.

So, you're basically using the OEM lower portion of the air box and the intake is sealed just as it was before? How much more air flow does your intake provide.

So does the Stage 2 Dinantronics get its additional 20 hp and 25 ft-lbs of torque from slightly different software than than what Stage 1 unit has? Or does Stage 2 also require you getting the new CAI to get those numbers?

+1

Also, If I decide to install this on the N55 and later on a B58, What additional charges would that incur?

I doubt it's going to fit a different engine just like this intake won't work on a n54.

Looking at stock F30/32 - Stage 1, CAI and Exhaust add 60HP/92TQ, 10HP/15TQ and 6HP/5TQ, respectively, giving us 376HP/412TQ. Stage 2 lists CAI and Exhaust as required.

Stage 2 numbers are 384HP/417TQ. I assume the Stage 2 graphs and numbers include the boosts from the CAI and Exhaust so the updated software adds 8HP/5TQ. I know the difference is $250, just looking to confirm...

If you want to get the stated 20/25 numbers then yes, you would need to do the stage 2 plus the intake and exhaust. The intake is the important element as the exhaust doesn't contribute that much to the overall freer flow and thus power. The stage 2 by itself though does also provide a power spike in the form of calibration for the differing air/fuel ratio the intake elicits and a small increase in boost pressure as well.

Your assuming it would fit on a B58 engine which the likelihood of that occurring is next to nil. But if it did stage 2 on the B58 engine would be vastly different then tuning on the N55 engine I am sure so a totally new tune would be required. A simple swap transfer of DINANTRONICS + intake from one car to another would not work. Even if it physically fit the car would run very poorly since the tune would be calibrated for a different engine.

You can't stack the power gains and hope to come up with an accurate number as each of those elements makes peak power at different RPM so simply adding them is a fallacy. Software as an example make the most impact in the middle RPM range where the biggest gain on the intake is actually in the lower RPM range. But yes the graphs as indicated include the power as measured with the intake, exhaust, and stage 2 software as described previously.

Yes, you can put an intake on a stock car. Remember, sound + imagination = hp gains

The CAI can be used on a completely stock car and still net the +10 HP +15 lb-ft of torque in addition to some sound improvement as well. Please note we designed the intake for power gains and the extra sound was simply a byproduct.

Would like to hear sound...power gain is nice, but for me, I have to like what I hear as well.

Are you simply suggesting these additional mods to achieve the peak power. I have an exhaust and intake produced by companies other than Dinan. Can i still purchase and install Stage 2 with the same benefit of warranty coverage or should I just go with a different Stage 2 tune at this point? Without the warranty coverage, the cost of Dinan is hard to justify and there are many alternatives hitting the market.

You could install Stage 2 with other brands of aftermarket exhaust and intake and it would run fine. However to caveats should be noted. For one, advertised power gains may be different as we have never tested whatever combination of goods you may be running. And two the warranty will essentially have loopholes built into it when running other brands. We obviously are not going to cover damages or problems caused by another brands product so just by getting a Dinan tune we are not automatically going to cover all claims under the hood. For example, if your car goes into the shop and is running some codes related to the MAF there is a good possibility it may not be covered since it will most likely relate back to a problem with the non-Dinan intake.
