In Reply to: 2-3??? A lot more than that.... posted by Sean on June 20, 2000 at 11:50:22:

How can you say that the Euro airbox is very restrictive? The Euro M3's are putting out 321hp breathing through the same airbox. 268hp is pretty far from that.

I currently have a Euro HFM and airbox on my M3. I've considered changing to a CAI, but I have never seen any dyno charts directly comparing the a Euro airbox to a CAI. Comparing a US HFM and airbox to a Euro HFM and CAI is definately not the same test.

What gives? Does any one have the numbers?

: Ken,

: The problem with the kit you guys have is the euro air box. It does not flow any better than the stock air box...complete waste!

: Adding a CAI will make a HUGE improvement to your car. The hfm and chip work well in letting in more air and calibrating it with the correct fuel and air mixtures, but a shielded intake really enhances it. On the dyno you can expect...

: AA has seen about 24hp at the rear wheels
: ECIS has seen 21-23hp at the rear wheels
: Jim C has seen 24-28hp at the rear wheels

: Go with one of these kits, you will be amazed...

: : Mike, I too have an Euro Airbox with snorkel and
: : have thought about switching over to CAI. Do you
: : know how much more HP it would give us? I was
: : talking to the guys at TC Kline and they said it
: : might add 2-3 hp, but weren't sure.
