Dinan so far is the only game in town I've seen. Nothing else from anyone including AFe and K&N which is surprising cause there's like a ton of stuff for older and other BMW models such as the e92 M3. The F10 has been out for awhile so I am surprised a bit...

Hey there,

Check AFe Power. You have 2 options on the filter 1. with oil 2. without. I went with choice number 2 without oil. Good luck

i think nobody wants to make them for the n63 engine because they're so damn hard to get to. every other engine is easy.

take a look at the following thread. they start discussing it on page one but on the second page someone actually went for it and they had to disassemble all kinds of stuff.

Reviving an old thread but does anyone know of an aftermarket intake for 550i?......other than the Dinan setup which cost an absurd amount of money.

No other options, its been attempted by a few times and at the end of the day heat soak kills any gains.

Do you mind doing a small "how-to" write up for making them? or maybe a few detailed pictures of the filters?

I'm interested in some higher flowing filters but prefer to use the dry cosworth filters vs K&N.
