Designed to fit the unique shape of the E90/E92 M3 factory air box and use the largest oval filter possible for the space. The large increase in filter surface area increases air flow, decreases restriction, for best flow and maximum power. This kit uses the oiled Pro5R filter.
This intake utilizes the existing factory intake box to seal the intake tube and filter from unwanted underhood heat. This helps reduce intake temperatures while improving air flow and air mass velocity for best combustion.
This intake can be used on any 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 or 2013 model BMW M3 V8, including the E90 M3 sedan, E92 M3 coupe and E93 M3 convertible models. The S65 naturally aspirated V8 benefits greatly from the reduced intake restriction, and this intake pairs nicely with added software, such as our EPIC Motorsports E9X M3 software flash package (available separately).
