: I installed both the JC chip and ECIS intake the same night about six weeks ago ('95 M3, 85K miles). Sound at WOT is amazing, the car roars. I felt definite gains in the midrange and a little up top (butt-dyno) but I was disapointed with acceleration from 2000-3500 rpms, it initially felt a little slower off the line (feels normal now -- maybe I got used to it). I'm thinking it's a "perceived" slowdown and not actually happening simply because the chip has made the power curve extremely smooth. Wish I had access to a dyno... anyone in Atlanta know of a place?

Installation was a breeze for both the chip and intake. The heat shield fit well but required a bit of elbow grease to get it to sit right. Intake and cone filter all fit perfectly.

Later,
matt
