This aFe Stage-2 air intake system for the E90/E92/E93 M3 V8 (2008-2013) produces 12 max horsepower, 9 lbs. x ft. torque and out-flowed the factory intake by 41%. This system is designed to use the factory intake box to seal the intake tube and filter and tube against unwanted underhood temperatures while increasing air flow and velocity for optimum performance. This gives you a best of both worlds solution -- a factory-like appearance with the stock outer airbox, but all the performance of a high-flow filter and optimized intake tube. aFe uses the largest filter possibe, with the most surface area and pleats possible, increasing air flow by 41% over the stock / original BMW filter element. The aFe filter media uses aFe's renowned oiled gauze filter, known for its ability to both filter contaminents like dirt, dust and sand from the intake charge while providing the maximum air flow and least amount of resistance possible. This aFe air intake system is specificially designed for the S65 4.0 V8 found on all 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 model BMW M3, and features a fully washable and reusable Pro 5R air filter. This air filter yields maximum air flow and filter life, and unlike a stock paper filter doesn't need to be thrown away every year.
This system was dyno tuned to insure the best real-world gains, and includes a replacement intake tube, filter, and all the hardware necessary for an easy installation. If you're looking for a more stealthy air intake system, this is the silent killer you've been looking for.
