I'm looking for a dci for my car. Will an N54 DCI fit an N55? Someone is selling one to me at a good price so I was wondering.. I searched but didn't find anything.

Thanks man. If I want to get an intake which route can I go? I don't care much for any gains. But I also don't want a loss in power. I am doing this to enhance my sound a little bit.

Not sure about intakes but why not look into some exhausts? I just got the AA Signature.

BMS makes one for the N55 as well....it's just not a "DCI" but an SCI...

I am saving up for an exhaust. I'm just Not looking to spend to much right now. That's why I was looking into intakes. How much did the exhaust run you?

And I'll look into BMS.

I was able to get it on sale for $1150 shipped -- AA Sig Exhaust + AA Catless DP. If you just did the axle back exhaust, depending on your sources (used, new, vendor), it can range from 400-700. And, of course, there are other brands I personally liked AA the best (from what I can tell through videos lol)

Thank you sir .

I'll be sure to write about my impressions of it after I get it on and let you know if it sounds better in video or real life.

I got the exhaust on. It's LOUDDDD. On a cold start in the garage, I couldn't hear my own thoughts. It reminded me of how loud it was when my subaru up pipe broke lol but after 20 seconds it calmed down and was nice, very classy. It's very loud under WOT but cruising on the highway, pretty quiet.

This is with AA catless DP and AA signature exhaust.
