: about a year ago. At the time there wasn't a cone-style ITG filter that would fit well into the small bumper space of the ///M Roadster setup I have. I am not sure if there is more room for the M3, but the best filter the job was going to be over 8" long when you factored in the velocity stack.

: I also question how helpful the velocity stack would be in this case because the Dinan tube is so long it probably will not have as much of focusing effect as it does on the shorter ECIS/Jim C intake tubes.

: In the end I installed a S&B filter which is similar to the K&N cone in that it is a gauze filter, but it is opens from the front as well as from the sides. A 6" S&B filter has more flow then a 9" K&N and the pulling of air from the front of the filter allows for a smoother flow. S&B also has a filter with a velocity stack built in, but I elected not to use it since I don't believe it would provide any benefit and it would require that I used a shorter fileter because of the clearance issues.

: I would prefer the finer filtering the foam ITG offers, so I would like to know what you guys find out... but for now the S&B works great.
: Regular S&B Filter

: "Velocity Stacked" Filter

: : I talked to BPG today about getting an ITG filter to replace the K&N currently on my Dinan CAI, I had heard good things about it and they agreed. However, admittedly to their credit, they wouldn't sell it to me because they weren't sure if it would fit on the Dinan CAI, something to do with the velocity stack design of the filter and some metal part. Anyway, they want to test it out before they sell it to me, which is cool, but they said it would be a while before they got around to doing that ... soooo, is anybody successfully using the ITG filter with their Dinan intake?

: : Thanks,
