    Intake on M157

    Im surprised that nobody has developed a new intake system for the new biturbo engine. The stock air boxes are somewhat restrictive, especially for a tuned engine. I believe a bigger intake should help the engine breathe better and pick up good power !

    Turbo setups do not benefit from intake mods the same way NA motors do since the turbo(s) are forcing the compressed air. The only real benefit is to get a cooler intake charge to the turbos since they create hot air. But that is what the intercooler is for. DUH.

    So far your option is the filters from Weistec. I believe Renntech is working on an airbox.
