I'd just pickup a BMS dual cone setup on in the classifieds personally. If you go new, then the AFE is decent.
What's the "leading" intake. I know there is no "best" because everyone's different

Well I see n55 is a 6 turbo engine. I have a turbo engine, so does this mean I should do this single?

The slight marginal benefit of the Mr.5 Intake is honestly only noticeable on highly tuned rides and for road course tracking where the high temps inside the engine bay become an issue. If you read through his logs and tests comparing these it's really negligible IMO and I had the materials to build his setup at one point.

Ya wish I had a manual trans. It adjusts shifting to take the car to higher rpm like 6500 then shift. Exhaust sounds amazing that high

Just read something crappy today, when I upgrade to the new s4 that is coming out in April instead of my iPhone, my car can't play music through the idrive like my iPhone can with the y cord due to my Bluetooth and that being out of date.
