M57 engine and meth help please from the USA!

Morning all, well it is in the uk! Anyway my question is I have a 08 e90 330d which has a dpf delete, k&n filter, swirl flap blanks with a remap. My car did get a Dyno recently where it made 269hp and about 600nm or 440ft ibs ish of torque! Which the car pulls well and I'm happy with.

My question is about meth because I took the car to Germany (nurburgring) two moths ago, I have a snap on diagnostic machine as I work on hgv's so I use tools and diagnostics equiptment a lot! Well while there my intake temp got to around 100c and coolant temp reached 112c which i think is very hot.

Does meth reduce intake temps a lot? I'm after personal experiences with this. I have found a devils own fit I might buy and fit. Is it easy to fit is it safe? What sort of power increase have you seen?

I'm not new to diesels at all but am new to meth kits so would like as mic advise as possible as the USA seems to use meth more than the uk. I don't get a lot of response from the uk section

Thanks Dan
