try a throttle body spacer, maybe even instead of the ari intake. the throttle body spacer swirls the air going into the intake manifold, making better use of the air already travelling to the engine. you will aslo see an increase in gas mileage as well as a approx. 10% boost in hp.
i have a jeep and have tried both the throttle body spacer and an intake. when in combination with each other they let too much air in tripping my sensors.
i am planning on purchasing an x5 in june but i havent test driven either 3.0 or 4.4. is the 3.0 underpowered? i like a good takeoff
Originally posted by RFredeking@Jan 25 2004, 09:26 PM The 3.0 isn't underpowered at all, im just looking to give it some more action. With the steptronic in 1st gear you get a really good kick off the start. You can definately feel it.
The 2003 i have has the Steptronic Shifting. ANd im guessing all the models have the steptronic i beleive.
S/C as in Supercharger. Yea ive thought about getting one but dont have like 6,000 bucks to spend...........................yet ; )

I personally like the 4.4L X5!! My mom has one and I drove it as my car for a good 4 months before I got my 5 series!! It has nice kick to it and its a 2002 I think or maybe even a 01 but it has trictronic shifting!!
