Well I bought my car way back in August of 06. It came slightly modded, including a K&N cone air filter.
I knew that cones suck, so I began my search for a stock piece. In the meantime, I ghetto rigged the filter by making my own POS heat shield, and "induction" thingy-do do get cold air to the filter and keep it from getting heat soaked. And in the meantime I noticed my intake arm was ripped, which is no good.
Anyways, low and behold I find a guy parting out an entire e34 m5 on ebay for insane prices. So I picked up a new box, arm, and filter for $50 bones and installed them
Anyway, enough with this incredibly dull and lack luster story, and on with the pics.
Stage 2 (notice the filter held up by fishing wire):
Stage 3 (yes thats my heat shield, yes thats my cold air funnel):
Stage 4 (ripped arm spot 1):
Stage 5 (ripped arm spot 2):
Stage 6 (new arm, clean as a whistle)
Stage 7 (done, heat shield is on now, just not pictured)
Anyways, the car sounds less ballsy, but runs a bit better
