What picture, I haven't seen it. Can you post it again Nate? :lmao:

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.

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:
