None that i could find. Our engine cover looks different from the E9X N55's so their intakes won't work on the F10. Last i recall people said there wasn't any gains with intakes with the N55.

On a side note do you still have the JB3 installed on your car? I am assuming you were getting CEL's due to your aftermarket downpipes. The E9x guys would get CEL's every few hundred miles unless they had a tune that surpresses that code. The tune for the F10 doesn't have that ability yet.

I maybe ordering the JB3 for the F10 soon so just want to make sure everything is still working as it should on our cars before I jump in.

The jb3 is going great. I still have a CEL from the downpipe but I removed sensor 3 from the tune and put the stock one in and apparently that's supposed to fix the cel issue caused by the tune. But I'd like to read the codes to check exacty why the cel is for. Whether its for the dp only or if it's something else as well.

Time to invest in the Bavarian Technic scanner. Its invaluable for those adding power mods to any Bmw.

Not sure what the going rate is now but when i bought mine it was around 250. Worth every penny.
