Are Dinan Throttle bodies worth it?

Bascially what the title states. I was wondering if they are really worth the price and offer significant gain for that matter. Any input is appreciated thanks..

Oh boy - M5Ranger and M5Junky please be diplomatic

I see you have a 335... Dinan does not make a throttle body upgrade for your car.

I am planning on upgrading to an M5 in the next months ahead hopefully and I am researching mods and thier affectiveness because I am very familiar with the E46 M3, E92 M3, and E90 335i. Just want to gain some knowlegde and I want people that acctually have the mod to chime in and see if they really do work on the street not just on paper..

I felt bad so I will say the following.

In my situation I could never show any rwhp gain on multiple dyno runs at different times (weeks apart).
I will leave it at that.
Good luck with your plans. You will love the M5.

Cheers,

Ranger
