Post pics/videos of your BMS S55 intake/car
 
Hey guys,

We have been thinking of making an intake system for the M3/4s and finally it's time to say we are getting close to releasing the product in the next 4-6 weeks. This is going to be affordable for everyone and won't have the M tax on it.
I am not going to say much now, just enjoy the sound clip (intake in the video is prototype, released version will look different)

Will update as we go from here.

Looks nice

Taimur 06-09-2015 03:54 PM

Can't see it but sounds nice!

Terry @ BMS 06-09-2015 04:23 PM

It's a work in progress but looks promising. We're evaluating the filter options currently and will post some updated photos once those are finalized.

Yes!!!!! Please advise when we can pre-order. :)

We've done some fairly extensive testing now with various prototypes and I'm pretty confident saying that on OEM turbos at least, gains are minimal. Around 5-8whp at very high rpm. The OEM intake flows very well up to around 525whp. For larger turbos we may see a little more.

Any intake company claiming significant gains on OEM turbos are just gaming the dyno runs to make it appear their intake added power. Dinan offering an intake and claiming "software changes" are required for it is outright ridiculous. I suspect they just change their tune from 3psi over stock to 4psi over stock and then attribute that gain from higher boost to their intake.

This is exactly why I like Terry and crew. He tells the truth about real gains. On past cars (n54, n55, n63), he has been quite truthful and correct about what I might see and what is the best bang for the buck.

Having said, that, as soon as it is out I will take a look, although I literally just ordered the K/N. I am usually late to the party

The sound this intake makes is addictive. This intake has completely changed the way I drive the car. I enjoy the car way more now.

Perfect... i cant wait for that. Hope it brings some whp more :clap:

It definitely sounds amazing. I really want to join you and Terry with the M3/4.

Sounds like the first time I added DCI to my N54 :)

Come on board!! You won't regret.

Any updates on the drop of these intakes yet?

Terry @ BMS 06-18-2015 10:08 AM

The first production batch is being made now. When we have them ready to ship, we'll let you guys know. :)

Taimur 06-18-2015 03:04 PM

Good to know. How involved is the install?

I would assume it wouldn't take more then 30 minutes to install.
Should be fairly easy. We will have a install video made when intake is released.

nrvous 06-27-2015 10:56 PM

all I hear are crickets ;) some of us have nothing better to do than stare at this thread all day. .... any news? timelines? better pictures or video? dyno numbers (if it does help with HP)

Terry @ BMS 06-28-2015 09:49 AM

They are still under production. When we have them we'll throw up some photos.

We'll see. I know a few shops are working on it as well. The intake is the first S55 hard part priority. :drinking:
