High Flow Intake Systems for E60 and E63
Dinan’s high flow intake system for the 5 series and 6 series dramatically increases intake air-flow volume and velocity as well as ensuring the lowest possible intake air temperatures for maximum power gains, as well as improved throttle response.
The system takes full advantage of the ram-air effect by adding a second air inlet in conjunction with the stock configuration, force feeding more cool oxygen rich air to the enhanced air box. The system includes a complete replacement air box and lid, designed to increase overall volume and accommodate the additional air inlet. A special high flow filter element is included, reducing the restriction presented by the stock filter.
The air box and lid are molded from a composite material that has been chosen specifically for its ability to resist power robbing under-hood heat and the design provides for a completely sealed air box, maximizing pressurization for optimum performance. Air from the secondary inlet passes through custom molded ducting, including a visible section manufactured from carbon fiber, also designed to reject underhood heat and provide maximum flow.
The high flow intake system alone produces a substantial 17 horsepower gain, taking the car to 342 horsepower at 6500 rpm. The intake note takes on a subtly more aggressive tone at wide open throttle that will be music to the driving enthusiasts’ ears.
Features and Benefits
Dual Air Intake Ducts: Secondary Inlet forces more air through the intake system, improving efficiency and performance.
Maximum Efficiency: The system has been designed using CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) and a Digital Manometer for the best possible air flow, as well as effective water separation for maximum performance and reduced engine wear.
Composite Air Box and Lid: The replacement air box and lid increase overall volume and are manufactured using a special plastic composite material that is highly effective as an insulator, reducing the power robbing effects of under-hood heat. The lid completely seals the air box for maximum pressurization and further heat insulation, maximizing performance.
Molded Plastic and Carbon Fiber Inlet Ducting: Custom molded inlet ducting is also manufactured from plastic, providing maximum flow and insulation from under-hood heat. Precision manufacturing ensures a perfect fit and clean appearance. The visible portion of the ducting is manufactured from carbon fiber for an elegant high performance look and effective insulation.
High Flow Filter Element: The system employs a high performance air filter element that flows more air than the stock filter, while maintaining more than adequate filtration properties to protect the engine. Filter replacement is as easy as for the stock unit.
Accommodates High Flow Air Mass Meter: The system has been designed for use with the soon to be released High Flow Air Mass Meter for further increases in power output at minimal cost.
