Dinan Carbon Fiber Cold Air Intake for BMW F85 X5M F86 X6M

Product Description

'Striking' is the first word that comes to mind when you pop the hood of a F8x X5M/X6M with a Dinan carbon fiber cold air intake system. The under hood appearance is completely changed and set off by intricate carbon detailing that make the engine compartment just as flattering as the sleek exterior lines the vehicle possesses. While the aesthetics are the most recognizable change to the system what is more impressive is the functionality that lies beneath the carbon fiber lid.

The increased volume of the air box allows the larger filters to ingest more air at any given moment and elicit a slightly more audible and sporty tone over its stock counterpart. This optimized design yields increased HP/TRQ throughout the power band and shows consistent gains over stage 1 when combined with the stage 2 DINANTRONICS Performance Tuner.

Benefits of the Dinan Carbon Fiber High Flow Air Intake for the F85 X5M and F86 X6M:

+ More Power: Max gains of 23 HP @ 5500 RPM and 25 lb-ft of torque @ 4000 RPM  when combined with the Stage 2 DINANTRONICS Performance Tuner and exhaust over stage 1 tuning. 
+ Sportier Sound
+ Improved throttle response
+ ~15% Larger volume air box via a Carbon Fiber lid that allows for the spacing needed for the larger filters. 
+ 228% increase in filter area (stock: 44.5in² each, Dinan: 146.2in² each)  
+ Dinan filters draw air in from all around versus the stock filters which only draw from the front and back of the filter. 
+ Bolt-on installation


Not legal for sale or use in California.
