I was told that these won't help your car any? I really need to gain about 20 hp in my car and i was told to get a shark injector, has anyone here actually had a power gain from one?

here is what you need

shark injector
CAI
M3 Exhaust

if you want to go a step further get M3 cams.

i have a reason just to embarassed to say. i want an exhuast but there are outside reasons affecting that decision. lets just say it has to do with gay parents. but i know there is another way to get 210 hp without exhaust

I have shark injector. Somewhere, I've seen their claimed HP. It's not much, something like 5-8hp. Every little bit helps. Add a CAI. And if you don't want an exhaust but want to add performance, start chunking unneeded parts (Spare tire, trim?) Where is that sawsall thread? :ph34r:

the shark is the best for ur money/gains by way of chips. but even with exhaust and CAI u may not reach 210hp, certainly not at the wheels. why do u need the 20hp so bad? if its for a race then take out the spare and try to free up some weight

I have the shark yes it works...

Go to a performance driving school before you start sticking these mods in your car. I guarantee you it will give you the best bang for your buck, as compared to buying mods first. Power is nothing without control...

does anyone know if the shark injector will void the warranty on a bimmer, and are there options outside of Dinan that will not void the warranty?

I believe that you can drop the original configuration back into the system with the Shark injector. So if you were to take it into the dealer you would simply connect the Shark, drop the OEM config back on, and keep going like nothing happened. I'm not sure if they would be able to tell that you had done that or not. I could be wrong.

i dont need 20hp, its just a number i picked cuz i wanted above 200 and that would bring me to 210, so if cai and shark injector wont bring me to 210 and i can't get exhaust. then what would another mod be that i could do? thats not expensive (800+)

Its not aftermarket exhaust, it comes from a factory M3, just let your parents know, tell them it's nice...not rice.

You may also want to look into pullies, they are pretty cheap and will add about 8hp.

Pullies sound good, first good advice i've got from this forum, except for the drivin school thing that was pretty good
