Endangered Beatz is an unknown quantity at this point
Thumbs up

I'm not new to mods & it might sound like a dumb question........but I don't know & I never heard this.....
When installing a new CAI filter, does it need to be oiled?

Regarding E39's, does software need to be installed?
I know it will perform better but when running a straight CAI, could it damage anything?

Thank you.

if you use reusable K&N filters then you will need to oil them after each cleaning.

there is a big controversy on e34 intakes because aftermarket ones let in too much dust/dirt, which is probably the same for other cars as well. Some think that more dirt = bad, but it doesnt necessarily have to be that way.

about the software part, it would help... it even adds hp/torque when using stock intake.
