I Have a Dinan Cold Air Intake

I have a Dinan cold air intake and I think it is pretty good. My fuel consumption is lower, now it's at 8.8L/100km city driving. There is a noticeable engine sound. Once the computer adapts to the intake, there is better throttle reponse. Feels like a 2Hp gain. I got it for $260 cash at a local Dinan dealer.

Exclamation Hearsay!

A guy at the dealership (heavily biased, of course!) told me that the Dinan and the OEM are less likely to inhale water if the driving conditions get bad.

The best intake is FREE - you can find it underneath the hood of your stock 330. Intakes aren't worth the money...in fact, with many you actually lose power. If I was going to buy one, however, I'd go for a Conforti unit with an ITG filter.

Dinan is far superior built, the filter is huge! plus you get the extra air duct. The sound is the same as OEM, which is good for me. I pay for hp not for sound
