Paul.. "general consensus" won't help you here...
We've tested larger (Euro) HFM's on OBD-II vehicles and they do nothing
but separate you from your money.. Because the meter is designed for
a different "mounting position" and when placed in the std. place in
an OBD-II BMW 6 cylinder they become position sensitive.. Simply rotating
the meter around it's longitudinal axis changes the transfer curve.
I believe Suzy (or her mechanic) found this out while reinstalling the
turbo with a Euro HFM installed.. (Suzy??)
We modified the software live in Sacramento.. once finished, it did no
better than intake system alone.
Save your money and stick with the intake you have... buy your friend(s_
a steak and a beer instead (OK.. a weeks worth, for what it costs)
