'99 M3 Engine / Clutch (?) Hesitating

Hi, I have a '99 M3 with almost 80,000 miles, and just today the engine started hesitating, seems to be more pronounced when I'm flooring it. I originally thought it was my clutch slipping, since it seems to gerally be when I'm getting into 1st, but it's sputtered a couple times when I was completely in gear, specifically in low RPMs in 3rd accelerating hard, it jerks as if I had popped the clutch.

I have a Dinan intake (and exhaust), and it kinda seems like the intake isn't sucking in air, could a dirty air filter cause this kind of problem?

Any help is appreciated ... just kinda scared I'm gonna have to come with $1000 for a new clutch.
