Neither. Get a quality filter using your stock airbox for the best results.Hey,I am buying an air intake this week and was wondering what brand I should go with for a little more hp. Should I spend the extra $80 and get the stage 1 afe pro dry or just stick with the $300 K and N?:thanks:
wrong. they do do something, but a very VERY small something, an intake alone will get you negligible HP, but its one of those mods that it doesnt hurt to have, and would actually be beneficial in combination with other mods like headers and exhaust.Air intakes do nothing for hp
Those gains are 100% unrealistic, I hope you didn't think that was the minimum you could hope for. They make intakes because most manufacturers don't/can't make them very well from the factory. Unfortunately for you, BMW is a company that can and does. Sure, you can improve on the stock design, but companies that do don't sell their intakes for 300 odd bucks.Thanks for all the replies ! I went with an AFE intake. I don't understand why it wouldn't do anything for performance. Not even 5-6 HP? Why do they make intakes then?
You know what, i'm not even going to bother getting in an argument about this with you :facepalm:What you said makes no sense to me. Bmw is not the only automotive manufacturer that specifically makes their stock intakes better than any other automotive manufacturer out there. Thousands of hours are spent on engine tests for stock intakes by GM, Ford, Acura, Honda, ect. I am sure that the stock intake on the 2010 Camaro is junk and actually takes away its engine performance. I highly doubt that! :facepalm:
