2.8/3.0 intakes will be available about a month after the E39 intakes roll out. The E39 4.4L intakes are being fabbed right now, with the E46 next, E39 2.8/3.0L next, and the E36 last.

Any road test's in wet/rainy weather? Just wondering how much water can get sucked into the engine from there?

Our intakes will include a water jacket just like the Dinan units. While water ingestion is always a possibility, the jacket will severely reduce the chances of this happening.
