Subject: [E36M3] JC Intake System (the final word)
It seems that agent provacateurs want to try and
have people believe that our intake is "a myth"
Well, it isn't... it exists, it's been tested
and all the details will be released very soon.
It uses a filter made by ITG. We are the only
suppliers of this filter technology for the BMW
aftermarket in North America by agreement with
the folks at ITG. The technology is a multi-layer
reticulated opencell foam. It WORKS!!
Which means our intake ALSO works.. we got a
peak "gain" of over 30 HP.. YES THIRTY!.. by
replacing the K&N filter on Tim Gergens turbo
system with one of ours. On norm. aspirated
BMW's we saw from 8 to 14 repeatable HP *at the
wheels* from just the intake system alone.
As to "Turner denying it's existance" once again
more intentional misinformation by "others"
What was said was along the lines of "We have no
information at this time".. which is true, as NO
sales information is being released to them until
the day before it's released to you later this week
(Monday at the latest)
Will Turner has SEEN and TOUCHED the prototypes
as well as witnessed some of the dyno runs in
Suffice to say that all of the "naysayers" are
going to be sad that they bought intakes from the
competition.. or overpriced OBD-II intake/HFM
systems.. because our intake ALONE beats their system
for about 2.5 times less price. Better filtration
where it counts, better HP, less cost, no chance
of water induction into the motor unless you become
a submarine ;)
There have been no real "delays" in this system...
My biggest mistake was letting ANYONE know it was in
development.. because I won't release anything.. nor
will Josh MacMurray who has busted his butt on this..
until it is 101% perfect. Which it now is.. and it
is in production as of this week.
Please feel free to quote this letter on other
mail lists and Bulletin Boards as the level of
disinformation being passed around has gone beyond
annoying and thru comical to the level of insane.

a "Jim C. Intake" is me.. Jim C.
