Anyone out there running the AEM intake on their E46 ? I had one prior on an Acura Integra and i noticed a difference in performance right away. I'm wondering if that could be said on a bimmer. :dunno:

I think it depends on what type. If you get the short ram, it's basically a hot air intake b/c of no heat sheild. If you get the benfer or dinan style one, where it sucks the air in through the bumper, then you should notice some of a difference.

I'd recommend it to anyone!!

Thanks for the reply. Did you install it yourself ? If so did you have to remove the front bumper ?

Depends on the intake. Certain intakes are just cone filters stuck onto the tube. Those suck.

Other short ram intakes (like our buddy the GruppeM) use a heat shield. The GruppeM also draws cold air from the air inlet under the headlight and from lower in the bumper.
