General Rule up thumb is....if you going to get a exhaust, its best to get a intake at the same time. It doesnt make sense to work on intake but not exhaust. Whats the size of the factory exhaust? Tunning is also a good idea. How is your fuel management?

192whp and you can keep pulling after 130???

The '03 X5 I drive with the same engine as the 330 struggles after 130, did you "upgrade" your 330?

Yeah well I was talking about the intake. That's what shifts the power peak. I think you will be happy with that. Still not gonna' be a ball of fire at high speed tho.

Feedback Appreciated
