Thanks!

Can't wait to see results from this.

Question: Any reason BMS DCI wouldn't work as the filters?

Update: picture of full kit below. This picture shows red silicone but supplier also sells blue and black. Black is default, it just so happened the elbow was back ordered in black so customer choose red instead to not wait.

Took apart my kit on my car and found a better routing for the rear turbo which is better flowing, easier to install and saves a little money too by requiring only a straight coupler instead of 45 deg between down tube and up tube for rear turbo. Because of that I added a couple extra parts to the kit. Added a 2" cable organize to organize all the cables near the intake manifold that can be seen now that stock intake or DCIs are removed, also added a line to replace the brake vacume line that is a big eye soar for anyone that does not have an OEM intake (stock looks like a hard black line that clips in near oil filter and snaps to stock intake box). I also added a black cover for the windshield washer tank tube/neck to get rid of eyesoar of nasty white tube usually stained by washer fluid. This kit really makes under the hood look VERY clean. Update pic under the hood below. You can see the parts added to the kit. The parts are also shown in the complete kit picture above.

Well if you guys can send me pics of the front turbo and rear turbo areas and also exhaust side of motor I can see if it's possible. Also if someone is in Houston to swing by for me to check out and then we can try to do something for you e60 guys.

Very clean looking setup, great work. Nice to see you are local too!

Do you have an Installation document you can share? I'm sure one could figure it out, but it's always nice to have someone share their technique to make the process quicker.

Also curious about how easy it is to remove the stock piping that snakes around the motor.

Hey everyone, quick update. Two kits are ready to go to tomorrow TJ and Spain (well TJ is local). They will be the first two users of the kit besides me. Also I started working with Sean in the Uk trying a couple things to see if we can make this fit for a RHD 335i for all my 335i friends over the pond

Also worked out shipping costs. Will be $25 anywhere in the US. Did a quick quote for shipment to the UK, and it's around $70. Package is 12"x12"X11" and weighs 12 lbs.

In the pic below one kit doesn't have filters because Spain opted to forgo the filters for a custom filter setup he is doing.

One last note, the K&N filters are backordered from K&N until March 5 ship out so will keep the group buy open until March 3rd and also will help fill the 10 group buy spots and give me time to get on the dyno with these bad boys. Get new O2 sensors and NGK plugs early this week and looks like also will be getting new injectors this week. All my coils and vanos solenoids are new also. If this doesn't solve my misfire problems, I don't know what will! Hopefully dyno late this week or early next but depends when car is ready to go and logging well on the street. I am already making a 3rd kit for a local friend who is helping me out for a trade for new injectors he has.

EDIT: made a mistake on shipping costs, its actually $30 in the US. 1st post updated with shipping cost.

Im going to make it this weekend. Was thinking more of an edited video with tips and tricks would be better and more user friendly.

E6x platform has the disc unit in the right front of engine compartment. That will be the biggest obstacle. I think it will be easiest for us 5er's to use the vvt ***** and eom filter location. I'm just waiting on more dyno results before purchasing or another vender making ***** and elbow kit to follow the same routing location.

By one of the vvt kits and reverse engineer it and I'd think Someone would have a winner.

Sorry you have to cut out and remove the rear inlet, otherwise the tubes on the rear turbo wont fit.

I think its possible on an E60 but wont know for sure until I see one in person. Hopefully someone in Houston with E60 can swing by for me to check out. LOL, I may just go by a BMW dealership and see if I can check under the hood of one

Would love details on this with or without stock intake it's still fugly!!

If you don't mind sharing that piece to help the community, i don't think its going to impact your intake sales
