2007 335i injen dual cone intake

The Rookie has More Questions, any help is greatly appreciated:

I think these things sound Awesome. That's why I want one. Increased power is also cool but mainly obssed with the sound. Is the injen my best bet? How hard is the install? Could I do it my self (I am technical)? How much should I pay? Looks like they run from $370 to $450.

Thanks to the both of you,

WOW! That Cost Much Less; I will go with that.

Will it sound just as cool? Why the 300% price difference?

Thanks,

If you dont mind I have yet even more extremly rookie questions to follow up with. When you say AP tune I assume you are referring to the intake upgrade right? If so, why is it called AP tune? From the YouTube videos it appears that the injen sounds far better than the one above from burgertuning. The injen seems to have longer stems and possibly larger cones, why is it so over priced compared to The from burger tuning

Have no idea why it costs way more then Burger......just break down what you are buying - two air filters, some pipe & hose clamps for adaptors - that's all there is; its not rocket science. The filters themselves are 90%+ of the price.

As for the sound have no idea, guess it's a matter of what appeals to you. I would buy an intake unit for power improvement regardless of the sound. Personally I don't think any of these units will do much for any car under 400whp. I am only at 365whp & expect no more then 385/390whp under my mod plan.

That being said if I was to get any system I would get the Burger Twin Cone based on not their tests but independent dyno tests by guys using them & my satisfaction with Burger stuff I do use. I run a JB4 tune & it dynoed on my car +5hp over what they told me to expect. That's way better then claims that are never met by a lot of other venders.

AP = Access Port from Cobb tuning....this device will reprogram your car computer and will increase your turbo boost.....

Thanks Again All,

That settles the intake, I will go as recommended.

Now that we are taking about AP tunes... I have also been interested in that but have not been able to figure out what is best and how much it will cost me. Someone was urging me to go with the Dinan stage 2 but I have been reading that JB is better. Anyone care to explain the difference and give total cost estimates? Forgive me for being so annoying.

When you guys install the DCI what do you do with the factory air box? Is there a second hand market for them?

Would be a good plan to keep it for eventual sale or lease return.

Sense you have these, is there any difference, other than color, for the BMA Dual Cone and the CP-E dual cone from burger?

The Cobb AP is one of the best, if not the best bang for your buck you can add to these cars! I highly recommend looking into adding one of those! In regards to intakes, we do sell a decent amount of the BMS systems because they have a great price point (your just paying for two filters). If i had to chose i would look toward the aFe Stage 2 Intake. It offers more than just two intake cones sitting directly in the engine bay. You not only get two larger intake cones for better air flow but a molded heat shield to prevent the cones from sucking in more hot air (heat soak). In addition it continues to utilize the factory ram air scoops which help channel the air directly to the cones while under speed. I have had numerous customers do data logging and have given me noticeably cooler air temps with the afe vs the open air BMS system. But if your on a budget, the BMS intake is a good option.

"I love it. It sounds great. The throttle response is really nice and with my other mods(Renn Art Exhaust)(SST Chip)(SSK)it has noticeable torque and horspower improvement. I noticed that my engine temp is also 10 to 20 degrees lower. I am super happy and encourage everyone to get this intake."
