Whats the vehicle?

I know that AEM are alot nicer than the offshore crap that is pumped in to North America for $60.

K&N Typhoon & Injen are not that bad too. Well I sell all those at work so send me a PM if your interested and I can tell you what a good price is for the above. So you don't get ripped off.

L8R,
Dave

AEM is a reputable company. Very popular among Honda/acura owners.
I had it for 3 years now.

AEM and Injen are the same. Both are very good that I know of for imports, not sure about euro cars though since there are companies like carbonio, dinan, and gruppe m out there

I would be shocked even if AEM or Injen even made a 15hp difference!

Can you answer the question! If it is for your BMW then the Carbonio intake is the way too go. If it is for an import....then AEM and K&N.

IMO, the best intake for your bmw would have to be Gruppe M. Light, top notch quality, awsome power gains. I honestly wouldn't put that carbonio stuff in your car. K&N isn't really good either, I read lots of stuff on fanatics about them letting more dust into the engine because the only reason it has better flow is the filter's rubbish. I would take Gruppe M over Dinan for sure, but I needed it for my other parts. I'm not sure if they still have for 328 or anything, but check it out! You will NOT regret it.

I have an HKS intake and as soon as I got in the car - very noticeable performance and fuel savings changes. Sounds much beefier too. Cost me 400 I think.
