Will simota intake for 325 fit on a 330??

I'm thinkning about buying a simota intake from a guy that had it on his 325ci. I have a 330ci and i'm wondering if i can get it to fit. Thanks

They will work but you may need to modify the intake inlet as the 330 has a larger inlet than the 325.

Is the only thing that is smaller the inlet or is the entire intake in general smaller than the one that is made for the 330?

Because the intake was made for a 325, the hose will be narrower and won't let in as much air as the 330 model, even with an adapter at the end. Stick with the factory intake for now.

The difference is in the outlet from the back of the intake, otherwise it is the same.

I'm goin to buy a silicone reducer and install it tomorrow. There won't be a huge difference in the amount of power i get from the 325 model compared to the 330 model right?
