can i replace stock air box with cone filter?>>
I need a new air filter and was thinking about using a cone filter instead of the stock air box. But i have a few questions...
Is this possible?
Is it as easy to do as it seems?
Would it be beneficial?
Would an ITG or K&N filter be a direct fit onto the stock intake?
How much do ITG filters cost?
Thanks to all who lend an opinion..

You can, but I wouldn't advise just sticking a cone filter where the airbox used to be. If you do that without a head-shield you're bound to loose power.
If you want to ditch the air-box, get a ECIS or Conforti intake. Or if you're a cheap bastard like me, there's a guy over on bimmerform that sells a 3.5" CAI that's like Dinan's for like $135 (or close). I got that, and am pretty happy with it, although if I wasn't so thrifty I would have gotten a Conforti.
As for benefits. They are pretty minimal. They do make the engine sound pretty mean though.------------------------------------

exactly, More >>
i've posted this before, but not sure if it was here.
i live in Phoenix, yes, very hot, and i've got an AA CAI on my M. one day i got home at the same time as my roommates friend, who runs a honda type thing with just a cone filter on a shiny intake arm. since both cars were JUST driven, and it was mid summer, we used a laser Thermometor thingy on both air filters. remember, it was 115 plus outside--his car's filter read 135+ degrees, my car's filter read 92 degrees.
do not use just a cone filter :) link below if you're intersted...
