    Dinan N54 intake... any good?

    Click here to enlarge

    CARBON FIBER COLD AIR INTAKE
    As boost is increased through the use of performance software, the single factory intake becomes restrictive and the engine is lacking the air it needs to make maximum power. Our cold air intake force feeds the 3 liter turbocharged inline 6 with greater volumes of cool, oxygen rich air for substantial power gains by utilizing our secondary carbon fiber intake. The system is so effective that the carbon fiber inlet air temperature is a full 40 degrees Fahrenheit cooler than the incoming air from the stock inlet. Due to the increased airflow from our intake, the power-curve is extended into the higher RPM’s for a noticeable change. The system is a direct replacement for the factory air box lid, employing a hand-crafted carbon fiber unit that also includes a secondary carbon fiber intake tube that captures cool air from the lower grill and includes the shielding for the conical filter to insulate it from power robbing engine compartment heat.

    PLEASE NOTE: As these intakes are made of hand-crafted carbon fiber, it is going to take a few months to get production ramped up. So please expect back orders for the first couple of months.

    Horsepower is increased by +14 Hp @ 6000 rpm and Torque is increased by +16ft-lbs @ 3400 rpm with Dinan Stage 3 Software, DINAN Intercooler and Free Flow Exhaust.*

    Stage 2 software, Free Flow Exhaust produces 12 Hp and 13 ft-lb torque

    Stage 1 software, Free Flow Exhaust produces 9 Hp and 10 ft-lb torque

    As far as function goes, it looks like the best intake out there, but the price makes it not worth it.

    Looks like something that could easily be replicated.

    No need for it to be carbon fiber. Someone needs to make an injected molded plastic version for 1/4 the price, they would make a killing.

    New lid and secondary intake tube/filter. Not rocket science.

    I gave them a call on Friday and they said they have a shipment coming in next week and they would "move me to the top of the list". I will give them another week & then I'm out.
