Want to open up the engine in your F30 BMW 335 or 435? CTS Turbo's intake system is the perfect option for your F30 N55. Many intakes on the market cause poor running conditions as a result of incorrect shaped MAF housings.
Your factory MAF housing is shaped like a hexagon, when you use a circular housing in place of the hexagon bad side effects happen incorrect MAF readings, erratic idling, and downshifting (particularly noticeable on the ZF automatic-equipped cars), and last but not least POOR FUEL MILEAGE. The reason for this is "DME" (computer) is not getting the correct airflow readings due to the incorrect shape of the MAF Housing. How did CTS Turbo accomplish a proper intake for the N55? They developed a proprietary aluminum MAF housing in a hexagon shape.
The OEM air scoop works in conjunction with our airbox to seamlessly force cold air into our air intake system. Air then flows through their 3.5″ high flow air filter, which utilizes an inverted cone design for maximum engine breathing. CTS's ″ CNC mandrel-bent aluminum intake pipe allows for smooth entry of cold air directly into the engine, minimizing turbulence from unnecessary connections. All of the components included in the CTS air intake system work flawlessly together to provide increased horsepower and torque throughout the entire power band and an aggressive race-inspired sound.
NOTE: This intake can fit both Manual and Automatic transmission-equipped cars.
Peak power gains range from 10-15HP on an otherwise stock vehicle.

Hadn’t seen anyone have any issues with this one so i purchased it! Heard it was the loudest sounding Intake so i went for it. I received package yesterday, 1 week free shipping, not bad. But quality control is terrible. Expect to sand down, or have some areas were it doesn’t exactly “Fit”. MAF housing is made of ceramic or some kind, and is clearly a mold. Mine came with an extra piece of ceramic at the entrance of the MAF sensor. Breather tube entrance was sub par as well. Otherwise, fine install. My take is that i shouldn’t be modifying a $300 part to fit my car. Intake cone is also not the same design as advertised in the CTS website. Maybe that is why this is the lowest price??
Amazing quality, fitment and sound!
Although this specific example of intake is a bit pricey compared to other models, it is worth the money. Fitment was spot on and bolted right up to my already existing braces and brackets. Overall it probably took me 20 minutes to install it myself. And it didn’t throw any codes on my dash when I started it up. The sound is fantastic, while still being refined and not too crazy. Hp and torque gains are decent top end.
Easy install sounds way better than I Expected it would u can really hear turbo spool now and bov sounds awesome !
