I'd like to take this moment to clarify why I list user names, and forum locations. I figured that there would be moments where people had questions about specific modifications that I couldn't answer, and it only made sense to give direction for the source.

In this instance, a quick search under this user name said this car started out as a 323 with Dinan software. He then swapped in a M54B30, but used the M52 running gear, disabled the vanos and added Shrick Cams. You're welcome to message him for further clarification.

Thanks! No it's not an SULEV. but it is a California car but it's actually from Germany, then Ohio, then here. The 1st owner (only previous owner) lived in Germany for a year. For all intents and purposes, it's an Ohio car.

Why are those numbers extremely low for a M52TUB28?

You'd have to check the dynos and see, there are a few automatics listed. But I think 15-20whp is a safe bet?

Dyno is before/after Dinan intake. Before was with a cone filter inside stock airbox.

Very solid gain! Does the Dinan long tube CAI incorporate the velocity stack-type tip before the cone filter?

Nope, not as-is from Dinan. I'm going to try to work on that, though.

Yeah I think I'm going to get the Cosmos Racing V2...and with the regular AmsOil filter it should allow the B30 manifold to draw in more air than the aFe drop-in filter my stock box. Can't wait to see the results from the stack tip.

Cosmo racing (no 's' ) have a intake tube that they sell, and it's pretty cheap too.

Oh awesome, i didnt see the cosmo intake gain in here, must have skimmed over it, but 7whp is pretty impressive with just a $200 intake
