Dinan releases F10 550i N63 and N63TU carbon fiber intake - $2,699, +10 horsepower
Finally, an intake option for F10 550i owners. Dinan released their carbon fiber intake which is designed to funnel cold air as a "ram air" style intake positioned at the front grille opening. Performance gains are claimed to be 10 horsepower and 8 pound-feet of torque but in typical Dinan fashion you are expected to take their word for it as no dynograph is presented to support their claims. Additionally, Dinan says software is required for the intake.
At $2,699 this is not a value product. And at that price point support for the performance gains is expected. Just because the name is Dinan does not mean they are somehow above showing performance parts actually give you an increase in performance. Still, people will likely be buying this due to a lack of alternatives on the market.
For now this is only available for the F10 550i but BimmerBoost does not see a reason why all N63 and N63TU BMW's can not have this applied. Pictures below.
