If you want more power out of your BMW, you need to let more air in! To keep engine noise at an "acceptable" level, BMW encases the stock air filter in a plastic housing -- a housing which restricts airflow into the engine. Installing an aFe Stage 2 intake kit eliminates that housing, allowing more air to enter the engine so it can breathe as deeply as it wants. You get stepped-up performance you can both feel and hear.
- Large Air Filter: 7" tall conical air filter with a 3-1/2" flange opening provides 47 percent greater airflow over the stock intake system. This washable/reusable 5 layer progressively finer mesh cotton gauze oiled media air filter provides maximum airflow for increased horsepower and torque.
- Mandrel-Bent Tubing: A 3" one-piece mandrel-bent wrinkle-black powder-coated intake tube directs unrestricted airflow from the massive filter to the turbo for more horsepower and torque.
- One-Piece Heat Shield: Sturdy 18 gauge powder-coated one-piece heath shield blocks performance-robbing engine heat. This heat shield requires no assembly and uses factory mounting locations for fast and easy installation.
- Hassle-Free Installation: All clamps, couplings, and hardware are included for hassle-free installation. This is a direct bolt-on kit that requires no cutting or drilling on OEM parts.
