The Hardware of this kit consists of the Macht Schnell E9X M3 Stage 2 Intake Charge Kit. It's our favorite choice for E9X M cars because it's designed for power! By replacing the restrictive stock filter with a larger, more free-flowing performance filter, the engine is able to breathe more air - and that means more power.
The disruptive accordion-style stock intake elbow that connects the air box to the intake manifold is also replaced. This Macht Schnell replacement Intake Charge Pipe (ICP) has very smooth and glossy interior walls, and it's also 18% larger by volume, so you get considerably more air while eliminating the turbulence and resistance that the stock elbow produces. The ICP is constructed from super-strong polyethylene and has a textured exterior that perfectly matches the texture of the OEM intake manifold for a stock look. Macht Schnell's own Intake Charge Scoops are part of this cost-effective kit, and they help to create a matched combination that provides maximum air delivery to your S65 engine for noticeable power gains.
Heavy-duty rubber intake couplers and European worm style clamps are included to maintain a tight seal while still allowing engine movement. A 6061-T6 anodized aluminum inlet is embedded into the Macht Schnell Intake Charge Pipe to retain the stock PCV system.Package Includes:
