CAI - Noticable difference in performance or not?

I'm attempting to decide if its a mod that's really worth the money on a 330i.

yes, butt dyno gains. Never tested it with a watch or real dyno.

I have DINAN Carbon Fiber, btw.

Dyno day is coming up for the L.A. Chapter again, I'll go and test with/without CAI.

CD-55's 330Ci is THE car testted on the dyno chart posted at ECIS's site. It shows a measurable gain and I have driven his car back-to-back with my former 330i and can attest to a butt dyno gain as well. Plus the sound is sweet (since the 330 is too damn quiet stock).

Yeah. It's probably worth it.

Careful. Or he'll post another pic of his clutch pedal.

Actually, they are the ones with more, er, capacity.

Slow here again. I must have missed this. Did he do a special order for the extra capacity seats?

No. He just prefers the non-sport seats as they are a bit wider.

actually, the side bolsters are NARROWER, there is shoulder support, but the bottoms are close to flat :p

I installed an ECIS CAI on my 325i. I can't really feel a measurable difference... Maybe because I'm used to it now... :dunno:
