In the quest to be all things to all people at an attractive price point the 330i has been reduced to a mundane, albeit pragmatic, core with elements devoid of any character both outwardly and inwardly. For example, in stock trim, the 330i comes with a utilitarian and lifeless airbox housing a basic panel filter accompanied by an intake resonator whose job is to eliminate turbo/intake noises. The same noises that those in the performance world relish. Essentially, BMW has seen fit to give 330i owners an airbox that looks uninspiring, flows adequately but not ideally, and emits no noise. The Dinan carbon fiber intake for the platform rights these wrongs and delivers a semi-open intake capable of flowing 58% more air than the stock system resulting in improved throttle response and the elimination of a potential roadblock when opting to pursue a high-powered build (upgraded turbo, fueling, etc). At the same time, the Dinan kit unveils a more aggressive, sporty carbon fiber appearance, and an increase in sound courtesy of the removal of the intake resonator and implementation of the semi-open design. To accomplish the feat inflow that sets the Dinan intake system apart the entire lower box of the system, and not just the lid, has been reworked and enlarged to make use of as much of the available real estate as possible within the engine bay. In turn, this allows a 40% larger, custom, free-flowing filter to be housed within and maximum flow to be realized. However, a secondary inlet has always been desired by Dinan to effectively fill the volume of the enlarged airbox and increased the filter surface area. This desire led to a multitude of experiments being conducted on the effectiveness of a possible open-air inlet in the system. With different shapes, locations, and sizes of openings being tested, the goal was to ensure that the added secondary inlet did not cause any unwarranted side effects such as an increase in air temps in the system. This is commonplace with open-air intake systems where overheated engine bay air is employed in the intake tract. The results of these tests showed that the patterned openings present in the final iteration of the box on the opposite side from the engine provided a perfect balance of additional volume to assist the factory snorkel all the while not causing an increase in turbo inlet temperatures. This was the case regardless of testing conditions (single/multiple gear pulls, constant speed, 0-100mph runs, etc.). While the additional flow does not translate to any noteworthy rise in power output for stock or basic bolt-on-equipped vehicles, the Dinan intake system does expand the potential of the platform's power ceiling. Put simply, those striving to build a more potent and robust solution, complete with turbo and fueling upgrades, will be allowed to maximize the results without the worry of the intake system is a limiting factor. Regardless of the level of build, the secondary air inlets allow the intake system to be more audible so the turbo spool and BOV can be appreciated. A stark difference from Dinan's traditional fully sealed systems where induction noise is not nearly as recognizable. The outwardly visible system is made of immaculate carbon fiber not to be outdone by the increased flow and sound, so the under the hood appeal is vastly improved over its drab and utilitarian beginnings. In and of itself, making it worth the price of admission.

Features:

  • Outflows factory intake by 58% or more.
  • Enjoyably louder, sportier sound.
  • Beautifully crafted carbon fiber construction (lid and tube).
  • Improved throttle response
  • Larger volume airbox (60% larger than stock).
  • 40% increase in filter area (stock: 82 in², Dinan: 115 in²) for optimum flow.
  • Quick and easy installation

Flow Bench Testing

The Dinan Intake System dramatically outperforms the factory intake and improves upon the stock closed box design with our own semi-open one. The Dinan Intake System is at least 58% less restrictive compared to the factory intake.. By allowing the engine to breathe, the intake system lowers the intake air temperature and allows a potential bottleneck to be mitigated on higher horsepower builds.
