: Dual Cone Intake Installation

07-18-2012, 09:10 AM
I am scheduled to receive my Burger Dual Cone Intakes on the 23rd. Seeing that I may have the longest install ever on the JB4, does anyone have any advice/photos/links for installing the intakes? The BMS site has photos from a 3 series for the installation guide.
Thanks in advance.

Nothing to it. The current airbox pulls straight off after you loosen and slide off the hose clamps. It's seated on pins that snap into rubber grommets, so just tug on it and it comes off.
Then install the black pieces of piping that comes with the cones. You can use the existing hose clamps you just loosened. Fit a cone on each and tighten clamp. Done.
Cones will be facing each other and resting against each other's lip which is rubberized. You'll gain some power up top and notice a slight hissing tone at high revs, especially after you let off the gas. That's the sound of the turbos whining. It's very noticable with hood open. Closed it is very muted.
