There are a few for the 330.

Conforti and ECIS both replace the stock airbox with a cone and heat shield system. Conforti's uses an ITG foam filter and ECIS uses a K&N cone filter.

Dinan uses an Aluminum (or Carbon Fiber, if you're lucky) tube that relocates the fliter into the bumper behind the foglight.

I have the Dinan intake and like it a lot :thumb:

Okay, long in tooth here, but keep me up with the times...We've gone from "Neato" in the 50's, to "Cool" in the 60's, 70's, to "Awesome" in the 80's 90's, now to "Phat"....I don't get it, where'd the "Phat" come from? :)

Nah, should be around $399.00. You don't have to get the Dinan Software (another nice mod - $1,100.00 is still too much though). Whoever you spoke with is just trying to screw you. See if there are other Dinan dealers in your area...

Reply to the first man . . PHAT was actually used in the 50's Example: to call someone a cool guy you would call him a "phat cat" lol

Thats another point! Do some 330 Ci's not come with Govenors? Cuz I swear on the freeway I've been up to 130. I'll take a picture. my engine is Stock too.
Speedometer error... 128 is where the limiter cuts in. You might be able to bounce off the limiter briefly and go a little faster, but that's it.

Do me a favor, do it at the track, you see, I have relatives that drive on the same freeway as you do...I would hate to see a terrible accident happen. Thank you.

PHAT = Pretty Hot And Tempting....shees Rip get with the times!


The Dinan stage I software removes the speed limiter and raises the rev limiter to colse to 7000, I've hit it on the track. This moves your top speed in 5th way up.

It also makes the throttle more responsive. I got it ($600) and feel the car is more balanced and responsive, even though it adds no additional HP.

Dinan stage 2 software $299
2.5-3.0 labor? at about $86-90 an hour labor rate
so that get's you around the $1000 mark and then adding Tax?
