I purchased a used intake from a forum member and followed the DIY from BQTuning (his post can be seen here: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showpo...00&postcount=1). Instead of using high temperature caulking to seal part of the intake, I used the high temperature insulation tape to seal the entire intake.

I am extremely happy with the way it looks in the engine bay and since the intake does not take as much room as the stock intake I'm now able to access the Burger oil catch can without having to remove the cowl.

I'm unable to comment at this time on a performance gain but I can say it's as quiet as stock. If there is an increase in sound it's negligible.

Pics to follow.

I would say yes there is an increase in performance. I already have the Dinan Stage 2 tune, Maddad mid-pipe and Dinan exhaust so it's hard to say exactly how much more of a gain there is with the AFE.

I bought mine used for under $200 and completely happy for what I got but not sure I would spend $500 for a new one.

There is a completely sealed intake which was modeled after the DIY sealed concept I did. Here are the results on the 1M which should be the same with the DIY version, if any difference it is negligible
