Dear OP, did you ever hold a set of OEM boots in your hands? Did you see how they merged the two boots with the seamless connection? Why didn't you try to duplicate that? The only downside to OEM boots is the material, they wear out. The OEM boots out perform anything on the market, replace often.

These particular boots are only applicable for 323/325/328 models. The 330i uses a larger MAF housing and a slightly altered boot kit. We are working on a 330-specific silicone boot kit as well, it is just behind the one noted in this thread. We will be a launching a discounted pre-sale for this particular kit within the next couple of weeks.

Thanks for the interest!

Yes, we did evaluate the factory boots during development.

The stock boots use a very similar connection point in the form of a plastic connector. This is shown below.



We've basically emulated this connection point in the form of a CNC machined aluminum component, which will also be more durable than the stock plastic piece. I would agree that the stock boots provide ample airflow and their primary issue with the OEM boots is in regards to degradation over time and eventual splitting. This is the reasoning for designing our kit with a silicone boot. The silicone material is far more robust and will provide an extended lifespan compared to the OEM counterpart.

Let me know if you have any additional questions!

Thanks for the inquiry!
