Has anyone done the new AFE Intake on the E60 M5?

Has anyone done the AFE Intake on their beast? I'm seriously considering doing this, as I had it on my 2007 530 and loved it. According to AFE, gains are in the range of 28HP and 24TQ. I know, they always exaggerate the numbers, but even half is pretty impressive. Currently, the car has the RPI Scoops and the BMC Filters. I would still keep the RPI Scoops, which hopefully would help even more.

Just curious if anyone else has done this yet?

Yes, couple of people I know have it and they love it. They kept the RPI scoops with it as well. I was thinking about adding it myself. Good luck with your new ride...you enjoying it so far?

Dynojet numbers were an "outstanding" 2HP / 2TQ to the wheels... The fan they used was a regular fan which I bet I "blow" (pun intended) more than it.

Still dont keep your hopes up if your looking at more than 10 HP for $800... And on top of that you still might get the CEL warning... But please post numbers as soon as ur done, the more the better...

AFE Intake

Guys,

We have a few AFE intakes in stock.....

Turner Motorsport - Item# 54-11272 - aFe Cold Air Intake Kit for E60 M5 & E63/E64 M6 V10 - E60 E63 E64

I have not had a chance to dyno a stock M5 or M6 with this set up yet, we have no stock cars in house and I really want to baseline it with a stock car.

If anyone is local , I will give a free before and after dyno if you purchase the kit from us. (I will also do a special price on the first few kits - Like under $500)

-Will

Does anyone know if you can use the RPI Scoops WITH the AFE Intake?

Aside from the gains, I really like how the AFE sounds on the car. It's nice and deep, not ricey.

I'm getting the AFE Intake for $490 shipped with the Blue Filter. Will - Can you beat that price?

Yep, both sides. Not bad, right? And that's with the Blue Oiled Filters. The Dry Filters are a bit cheaper...I think around $470.

Anyone know the number or URL for RPI? I'm going to call them and ask them about this set-up.
