Cool story, bro. Apparently you don't know that simply adding "dual rams" means precisely nothing since A) the factory system was not restrictive, B) the factory system was engineered to allow the incoming air to flow correctly through the MAF, and C) even if you have ten ram air intakes, it all has to pass through your MAF and throttle body, and if you don't have the right air pressure inside the intake, the MAF isn't going to work optimally...

Waiting for equally stoopid YouTube video attempts.

ok well I uploaded the video but how do you put it to this forum lol & if you start the video from when you see the needle move to 60 you will see! & that's ridiculous if you looked at your car you will see. I will also put up an old video of my car to 60 with slight mods and it now! you be the judge! it is restrictive to hell. Here take a look at the opening of your airbox they have a small plastic insert that restrics air flow. Just type it in online 323i restrictive ! I removed all that restrictive crap

You have no grasp of flow dynamics...

I guess no answer on how to post a video from youtube to this thread? and dude plain and simple! when I removed the items from my car it went faster. so flow of dynamics I guess didn't work to well on these cars if its doing crap to 60! instead or reprimanding me, how about you take a look at the setup on your intake system

I love how this guy think that nobody else has ever tried this stuff, and is still claiming that his 323ic is as fast as an M3, despite having a power deficit of 72hp and 59ft.lb. and weighing 154lbs more.

Good stuff. Tell me more!

Well I used a stopwatch and got 6.9 seconds, which is a far cry from your initial claim of 5.6.

We could get somewhat close to the actual time by pulling the audio and viewing it on a spectrogram. But yes, my stopwatch probably is a little slow, since it's hard to start the timer exactly when he begins accelerating. It's probably closer to 7.0 or 7.1.

Using my iPhone I got 6.4 seconds twice, but still at 7 seconds that is way faster than it should be for a 323ic with an automatic transmission. What am I missing? Something is not right.

BMW claims that extra grunt will sling the new coupe to 60 mph in just 7.1 seconds, a mere half tick off the pace of a comparable 328is.
