Sound Clip | INJEN CAI for the N55

There's finally an option for an intake for the N55.
Picked the intake up from INJEN a couple days ago and been road testing
it.

It's a solution that replaces the OEM intake and pipe'n all the way
down to the 2nd sensor. Relocates the Power steering reservoir with
an included custom bracket and a snorkel to re-direct air flow to the
cone.

First initially thought is wow, i can hear my turbo spooling very clearly from
inside the cabin. Building up boost and hearing the spooling is awesome,
there's a "blow-off valve" sound as well.

Power wise, Injen dyno'd it at 12 whp and 15 ft/lbs - from a butt dyno
stand point I would say feels strong between 1-3 with 3 pulling very strong.

I feel 0-60 there's an improvement in power
And during some spirited freeway runs, I would say in 3 you feel the most
power. Injen did their testing with my bimmer and those dyno numbers
will be posted soon. I will also do an independent dyno as well. Those numbers
will be up in the next couple of weeks.

The polish chrome is bling and personally I kindy like it.
I had concerns that the pipe'n would get extremely hot and
I have to say it is not hot like a skillet - it's luke warm on long runs.
The weather's been cold recently so come summer well see.
The aluminum tubing does help keep it cool. Injen fabricates all their intake here
in the United States.

I respect that Injen took there fabrication
all the way down to the second sensor. The oem tubing is distorted and
has an oval mid section to the intake box. They just went straight
pipe from the 2nd sensor all the way to the cone.
I say 2nd sensor because there is 1 more elbow tubing to the turbo.
and getting access to that elbow would be a bitch if Injen went all the way to
the turbo. Install is very straight foward give yourself 1-2 hour, 30min if ur
quick.

Another thing worth mention'n is the added engine space you'll get with
this intake. Relocation of the Power steering reservoir is awesome. This
custom bracket is clean, looks oem, not janky. You
get direct access to the charge pipe


EDIT:
NO check engine light -

very nicely made video, and that CAI does sound fantastic. I wonder how the aFe will compare?

Any initial comments on performance?

I mention'd that to Injen as well.
Concerns of heat in the engine bay.
And they took time to explain the process of their
fabrication.

Even before their intake goes into Road testing
and fabrication they figure out the factors and tune
the intake through simulations. Entering values and specs
from the 335, running test, and running them again.
Once they get a value that is up to their specs,
then they build a prototype and R&D. And repeat and rinse
as needed.

I've yet to see a check engine light.

At the end of the day, they took that suggestion of
a heat shield and are work'n on an optional add on piece.
I have full confidence in their knowledge of intakes and
customer support.

I'll continue test'n this and romping around town and abuse
it till dyno day.
