From my searching, intake only provides minimal hp gain and turbo sound. Am I missing anything here? is it worth it to get aftermarket intake?
My car: 2008 E90 335i with JB4 and AR downpipe
Intake IAT testing was done and it showed the DCI style intakes don't dramatically increase the IAT, which is due to the air passing the hot turbos and then the FMIC before hitting the engine.
