So I'm posting this in this arena as I'm curious of other's inputs...

Here is an intake system from Active Autowerke for an M5...M5 intake

Now that's cool and all, and I know I'm going to sound like a real Noob, more so than usual, but is there a way to have this done to an E46... or any other BMW besides the M5?

The GruppeM intake is supposedly Ram Air... to me, it looks like it's sucking in warm air (i know that this has been discused before). Other's have said that it would be best to leave the intake stock as it would be more like a ram air design.

Well, what if you actually created a Ram Air design just like that on the M5, ducting the twin tubbing into each other then into the intake adapting a GruppeM or conforti intake or something in that realm. It would seem to be more "forced" air and pretty much guaranteed to be cold all the time.

Then again, I'm no mechanic...just pondering.

There are endless ways to do it... But there is only so much frontal air to grab.. and only so much space in the engine bay to run pipping to the intake compartment.

The Jim C. Pretty much gains its air from up under the car... some have routed or modified their brake ducts up to the intake compartment... its all on what you think works best... but for your interest.. YES.. it is possible to rout that stuff to the intake compartment.. or a Jim C. intake.. to simulate forced induction to the air filter.
