Panel Filter

Post by chinskee » Thu Nov 23, 2017 9:53 am

Hello there, just out of curiosity would a Pipecross or K&N filter make much difference at all to my 116i?
Something like this?:

iv just fitted a pipecross, with an mpe m135i exhaust on my 116i, before id only get a nice sound from the rear and the engine would sound like a sewing machine because it being a direct injection engine the injectors are so load it almost sounds like a diesel, now with the pipecross filter it sounds even all the way around, nice low frequency engine and a slight rasp from the exhaust because of imporve air flow when you let off the accelerator

im really pleased tbh

Ahh cheers man! Yeah stock the engine does sound a bit off imo. I'll give it a try, not bad for £35 i guess. You got any ics of your build on instagram? If so follow me if you want: f21charlie.

So fitting a different air filter changed the tone of the engine?
