Outflows the stock / factory BMW airbox by 20%!
BMW has to design their air intake box to be whisper quiet, to please the most persnickety future BMW owners and test-drivers. And they only need to flow enough air to make the factory stated engine power and performance figures. This extra baffling and sound deadening is built into the stock design, and really hinders performance -- especially if you plan on adding a few extra pounds of boost later down the road!
Fortunately aFe has used their design and manufacturing talents to "undesign" this restriction out of the N55 engine's air flow and combustion abilities. This sealed housing design is computer designed, bench flowed and dyno tested to maximize air flow. The results speak for themselves, loudly! From the driver's seat you can hear the difference in airflow, as the rush of air volume is audibly triggered with a flick of the throttle. Under load, the elimination of restriction and deadening also allows you to hear the the boost spool on hard acceleration. But the results don't just end at the improved sound.
