Any pics further away from the car with the kidney grilles back on?

Dynos done with hood closed ALWAYS.





Because the car was very low, tilted and our fan being a little higher off the ground, most of the air the fan was pushing was hitting the hood of the car. Bringing the fan downward to simulate air coming straight into the kidney grills showed even better results.

Again, its not for everyone and its just not business wise for us to spend months developing a product to sell it for $6. The price reflects on the numorous amount of prototypes and hours and hours of dyno time over a month period.

Have someone prototype something for you, prove the performance on a dyno, tig weld a set and powder coat it for you for $6. You can be the hero of the forum.

BALLER YO!

My guess would be that you may actually see better gains on an NA car. We wont know until we actually test it though. Im willing to dyno a manual trans 328 if anyone in the area is interested. Please contact Eric at SPP if you are interested. We can arrange a time to meet up and test the ram air.

wow, something for the 335i and non-335i's! cool stuff!

so i'm assuming due to the nature of the product we would probably have to clean out the filter more frequently.

How are these scoops installed?
I'm assuming you need to remove the kidney grills, what else?
Thanks
