      Those look like motorcycle filters.

      It's might be a good idea to move the filtration further away from the air horns by using an airbox to smooth out the flow and reduce turbulence at the air horn opening. Years ago a bunch of us noticed this while tuning our e30 M3s on the DTM CF airboxes.

      may have a plenum like a true race car has.

      example

      wouldnt that hinder performance...? i mean, usually on plenums with side entrances, cylinder one gets lean (too much air in) and cylinder 5(in our case) gets rich (too little air)

      with individual filters, then all of them get the right ammount of air. Unless of course that the plenum was for the dd...

      anyways, just wondering.

      It depends on the shape of the airbox and volume of the plenum. You have to consider the flow of air into each trumpet. Having filtration that close to the trumpets may slow down flow and create turbulence - though it will sound fantastic. Keep in mind every modern race car with ITBs that you see runs some form of airbox.

      BTW, that airbox looks really nice. TWM has some great components, but I don't see anything for the 5cyl. yet - the roller throttles, if modular would be great.

      Incorrect. Here's what an M63 engine looks like with the cover off. 8 cylinders, 8 throttle bodies, 8 nasty looking runners.

      My neighbor has 202,000 miles on his '01 M5 without any problems, if you don't count a lot of tires worn to the cords.

      All of the M cars have had ITBs with the exception of the US Spec. e36 M3 and the recent 1 series M.

      so....the tehITB's i paid huge money to get custom built, waited 2 month longer then told...didn't fit at FIRST. i gave them 20+ pictures. measurements of everything even hood and rad clearance. EVEN gave them a oem manifold....ARGH!! oh well... with some machining and fitting...they NOW fit and fit well. plenty of room for a plentum if needed working on them more all this week. more to come.
