Do NOT go with the Dinan cold air intake unless you are prepared to buy their OBD2 software upgrade with it. In fact, I don't think they will even sell it w/out the software.<p>They have a resonance problem with the intake that has to be "corrected" with software.<p>You are better off with a K&N Cone, heat shield, and Jim Conforti's code.

I've heard of carbon fibre ones, but that seems kind of overkill/goofy to me..

<i>: I am in the process of making my own heat sheid for my K&N cone filter. My prototype is going to be made from 12 guage aluminum (I work in the printing industry, and this is what we use to make plates for the presses)and I plan to cover it with the the same insulation as the hood, so it will blend somewhat with the rest of the engine compartment. I should have it complete by next weekend. If you are interested, give me your e-mail address and I'll send you jpeg of finished product. If you want a copy of the template, just let me know.<br>KennyB 97 M3/4<br>: : Do NOT go with the Dinan cold air intake unless you are prepared to buy their OBD2 software upgrade with it.

Or better yet, wait until Jim C. comes out with an intake system for the OBDII cars.<p>Rumor is that he is working on an intake that takes care of the problem that the Dinan system has without kludging around the problem with software.<p>Jim C. is also working on a supercharger setup for the M3 too!!<p>Timmy<br>'98 M3/2
