In Reply to: TECHNICAL QUESTIONS** M3 TUNERS**VERY IMPORTANT!! posted by MEGA///M3 on February 12, 2000 at 17:40:45:

: : I have a 1995 M3 and I am wondering what (if anything) would happen if I moved the OEM mass air sensors and HFM further away from the throttle body?
: : : I have a dinan intake and would like to connect the OEM HFM directly to the cone(air filter) then have the DINAN carbon fiber tube from the HFM and connect to the other side to the existing OEM bent rubber tube that connects to the thottle body... Can anyone give me any info on how this would affect the car?

: I already have a Conforti chip. I am asking this odd question because I was hoping someone could give me some useful info. Like exactly why it would or would not work and exactly what would occur. I am asking because it will affect the upgrade I am in the process of doing. ************************************************* I would like to know if I moved the HFM further from the thottle body what would happen. the distance would move the HFM about ten inches to 12" from the throttle body. Any helpful response would be good.

: Thank you ALL!!!!!!

: Shawn, Thanks again...I now see what you are saying. If the cone is down in the front body panel the HFM should be a few inches away from the cone. OK. If I can make a adaptor to move it away from the cone and then make the rest of the modifcations, It stands to reason...It should be ok. However there prob. is no one else who would have done this before....Ok, let's see what happens.
Thanks Again.
