$1330 is a great price. Definitely will be interested at that price

Impressive if it stays around this price point. Can't wait to see final results.

What’s their production capacity and time to deliver? It seems like we could have up to 50 people interested when the time comes.

Also 1x1 is definitely the way to go.

Interested to see what their intake runner design will look like. My VAC air box has a drastically different runner design than csl. Makes good power too

I appreciate the effort to give us more options but am i the only soul on this forum who think that's spending 1000$+ US for a g-damn intake is absoutely ridiculous?

Then you have to buy a flappy flap, then you have to get tuned, then might as well get headers, then you've spent 10-12k$ US on your M3...and well, that makes me sad.

I guess it comes with the BMW stereotype.

What's with the 1x1 fascination? Die Wethje original was 2x2 IIRC.

I am interested but I would like the option of using the EO flap so if the flange where the fancy new snorkel meets the airbox is the same as OE I am in. (Pending testing)

I wonder if it's possible to make one of these run with the stock MAF sensor. No MAF on a street car sucks..

No noise would be lost. The human ear probably wouldn't be able to notice any difference in mechanical resonance or acoustical resonance between ABS plastics and carbon fiber so some sort of ABS plastic would certainly be a cheaper option (good thought) but... i don't think most customers/potential buyers are looking for that. Carbon fiber is too sexy (and better for thermal conductivity purposes).

The sound does not get amplified simply the pressure changes.
