BMW Performance Air Intake Systems

All BMW models share high-tech equipment, smooth driveability, and distinctive performance. But you can take your car to the next level by replacing your restrictive OEM air intake with a high-flow air intake manufactured by the top names in the aftermarket industry. An important aspect of the engine's performance is a large amount of air. And custom-made air intakes are the excellent products to ensure that engine is getting enough air at the right temperature. Each of these air intakes features a non-restrictive design and contains an advanced air filter that is engineered to provide superior filtration, and at the same time, allow clean air to flow freely into the engine.

The performance air intakes that CARiD offers will boost your BMW's horsepower and torque, increase throttle response, improve engine sound and fuel usage. Cold air intakes, however, can go a step further by sucking cool air from outside the engine compartment. If you desire the coolest possible airflow for your BMW, select an aftermarket cold air intake from manufacturers like Injen, K&N, and Weapon-R. In addition, you won't have any troubles with installation of this component as every custom-made BMW air intake kit includes step-by-step instructions and all necessary mounting hardware.

    An intake manifold is an integrated assembly that sits atop the engine, consisting of a series of tubes which distribute fresh outside air to each and every cylinder. On V-shaped engine blocks, an intake manifold typically sits between the two cylinder banks while inline engines may feature a manifold to the side of the cylinder head. Intake manifolds serve as a...
    Most aftermarket air filters are constructed from multiple layers of cotton gauze, which are sandwiched between wire mesh that is formed into pleats. The layers of oiled cotton fibers are able to trap dirt particles that are even smaller than the holes in the filter media. The airflow stays consistent between cleanings, for optimal combustion.
    The easiest way to improve airflow to your engine is just by changing your stock air filter to an aftermarket performance air filter. There’s an aftermarket air intake system for every budget and every application. Even if you have a hot rod or custom car, or if your car’s just not listed in a catalog, you can still get a quality system. Everyone, regardless of...

    1997 BMW 3-Series | Posted by Lachlan | (Saddle Brook, NJ)

    The silicon boot has added the crown to the top the intake rebuild on my E36, giving substantial throttle response increase and more power through all rpms. Looks excellent in my blue themed engine bay and was so easy to install after the much more difficult work I have been doing it seemed to good to be true. (But it wasn't) Just as a reminder to anyone less familiar with engine work, you have to remove the ACS throttle body but that is very easy.
