Filter intake for ESS TwinScrew Supercharger.


Wondering if anyone of you guys running a TwinScrew supercharger for ESS have any advice on a Airbox or filter kit that will fit the supercharger.
The original box is boring, and does not give a nice sound like the BMW Performance airbox I had before (Changed out due to it not fitting with M3 bonet and normal Coupe fenders).
I've tried AFE's Stage 2 kit, but the hole on the heatshield is to far down.

Must be someting like an airbox or something with a good heatshield.

You say you want a box, but the only box styles would be OEM, BMW Performance, or Dinan. No idea if Dinan will fit. And I have a KN. Love it.
