you can't count it like that..
from dinan's website
Engine Software, Cold Air Intake and Exhaust


stock hp dinan hp
225 238

stock tq dinan tq
215 224

thats w/o the throttle body..but it only gives about 6hp or so..
-----------------------------------------------------------------
now you add up the cost..
software for stage 3~ 500
intake ~400
exhaust ~ 800
throttle body ~ 500

so $500+400+800+500 = $2200..

and with the $2200..you get only around 245hp 229ft tq..

THE ONE DESIGNING FACTOR IF YOU ARE UNDER WARRERTY YOU
AFTER GO WITH DINAN OR ACS IF YOU ARE GOING OFF OF WARRENTY GO WITH RENNSPORTS

i know i got the gruppe m intake but the dinan beats the hp gains by 3-5 hp and the tq by 5 maybe in my case it was better to go dinan for my m3
you see my point of view you after desided for yourself.

hey man..no one is fighting with you:dunno: i'm simply just showing you where i got those numbers from..

i got tired with speaking to dinan reps since they all have attitude problems..

but hey..just showing others what other options they can choose from..:thumbup:

edit:
also..why would dinan post lower hp/tq gain ON their website then what it would actually gain? maybe that guy just gave you a number off the top of his head?

Bob i would bet(wild guess) money on the Dinan intake is not giving more HP than the GruppeM. Dinan provides deceptive numbers. Even so drastic that there are a few M5 owners wanting to present a class action law suit against them due to their inflated claims.

Dinan puts out chips that produce no power for the E46 330, 325, and M3.(however if u read on their site for the chip, it leads you to belive it is making power)... The reason they do this is because they are tied closely with BMW, produce accordingly to the BMW corp, and do not want to exert these motors to the full tuning potential. Why? because if they do...then maintenance and repair bills covered under warranty increases and so does their net loss for the year. Dinan = the shy tuner .. imo


Ya the warranty is great...but that is only thing that appeals to me about Dinan. Their aftermarket parts are a joke in both price and performance outcome(applies to the E46 and the present day company)...puts on flame suit...zip :)

Did you guys ever think of taking a couple dyno results and comparing them? Maybe that makes a difference? :dunno:

Either way, I just got the Dinan exhaust....
