ECIS Intake Installation


Is the ECIS intake installation that easy? Honestly I am terrible with any tools aside from a spoon or fork.

How long to install on a 330i?

all tools you will need can be found in your trunk.... the 10mm wrench.

it's a very easy install. like others have said, about 15-20 minutes. you definitely don't want to pay someone to do it (unless you wanna pay me ... )

go for it!

It is easy to install, it comes with color illustrated pictures. Just be careful when you install the heatshield and try not to be too rough. Also, for me, it was a PITA getting the rubber connector in the intake tube.

Other than that, I like it! I find myself redlining more often now
