The system is a direct replacement for the factory air box lid, employing a hand-crafted carbon fiber unit that also includes a secondary carbon fiber intake tube that captures cool air from the lower grill and includes the shielding for the conical filter to insulate it from power robbing engine compartment heat. With a peak horsepower of 398 at 5700 rpm and the peak torque of 429 lb-ft at 4300 rpm as tested with Dinan High Capacity Oil Cooler System, intercooler and Dinan Free Flow Exhaust is a monumental increase from stock.
As boost is increased through the use of performance software, the single factory intake becomes restrictive and the engine is lacking the air it needs to make maximum power. Our cold air intake force feeds the 3 liter turbocharged inline 6 with greater volumes of cool, oxygen rich air for substantial power gains by utilizing our secondary carbon fiber intake. The system is so effective that the carbon fiber inlet air temperature is a full 40 degrees Fahrenheit cooler than the incoming air from the stock inlet. Due to the increased airflow from our intake, the power-curve is extended into the higher RPM’s for a noticeable change. Stock car gains 5 Hp and 6 ft-lb torque & Dinan Performance Software is highly recommended.
Horsepower is increased by +14 Hp @ 6000 rpm and Torque is increased by +16ft-lbs @ 3400 rpm with Dinan Stage 3 Software, DINAN Intercooler and Free Flow Exhaust.
Stage 2 software, Free Flow Exhaust produces 12 Hp and 13 ft-lb torque Stage 1 software, Free Flow Exhaust produces 9 Hp and 10 ft-lb torque.
Completely Stock car produces 5 Hp and 6 ft-lb torque.
Free Flow Stainless Exhaust (D660-0043 & D660-0043-BLK): An important addition for any enthusiast who wishes their car to sound as good as it performs while also supplying significant power gains itself. These exhausts are dyno tested for maximum exhaust flow with minimum backpressure. The system is designed to provide a more aggressive sound under acceleration, while reducing drone inside the vehicle, thanks to Dinan’s exclusive Helmholtz Chamber and Butterfly Valve technologies.
Performance Engine Software (D900-30TM, D900-30TMC): Dinan® Stage 2 Performance Engine Software safely increases turbo-boost pressure, along with properly retuned fuel mixtures, ignition timing and full map rescaling for your BMW 1M E82. Dinan’s software also removes the top speed governor so the BMW will be capable of achieving its natural top speed. Producing substantial increases in power output while maintaining the civility and reliability expected of a Dinan performance product. In an effort to more effectively control oil and water temperatures, the Dinan software actually increases water pump speeds as boost pressure increases. And as always, Dinan matches the new car warranty coverage for up to 4 years or 50,000 miles, including the possibility of consequential damages. No one offers better performance or backs it up with such comprehensive warranty coverage.
