Sure, I think there are some members in this category.
Thx... looking for confirmation from someone who has done it.

I replied because I noticed you had the Hankook V12's... My fiancee has those on her WRX and I marveled at the quiet and comfortable ride they provided, but they weren't all that grippy, so I was going to go with the Conti DW. In the week between deciding on that and buying, they released the V12 evo 2, and after consulting with a TR representitive, bought those for ~$70 more than the DW's. I couldn't be happier- they're literally everything good about the V12 Evo, but better in every way. Highly recommend when you need to replace the ones you have now.

I mean, I have a Shark tune, but pretty much stock, yeah. Basically what I'm asking is if that kit requires the intakes to be not stock to work. If they work with a completely stock intake, no worries. There just isn't much documentation on it, and so I was hoping there were some members on here that had relocated the IAT sensor without an aftermarket intake.

i've done it on every m5 i've owned all with stock intakes. the point of doing the mod is to relocate the sensor to a spot that will give a more accurate reading and not get heat soaked. its a bit more work but imo the best spot to put it is in the passenger intake snorkel behind the bumper. obviously you have to remove the bumper cover.
