    I will hopefully be recieving my new dave f induction kit tomorrow, and looking forward to fitting it.
    My 328i coupe has the m50 manifold and throttle body, and has a carbon simota induction kit fitted (all by a previous owner). I hear the simota kits have a very good reputation, but then again so do the dave f kits.
    Does anyone have any knowledge of both kits ?
    I suppose I am asking: will I lose much if any performance by replacing my simota kit (which looks about 5 years old) with a new dave f kit. My guess is they wont really be much difference in performance between the two, but any advice & knowledge gained by past experience from forum members would be very helpful

    If the filter is regulary cleaned then you won't see any degrerdation. Very little gains are to be had from airfilters anyway unless its a turbo charged lump or the factory airbox is very restrictive which in the BM's they arent.

    we have done a lot of testing with both of these filters on the e36 328i with m50 manifold mods and bbtb

    it all depends on what amount you adjust the remap by

    they both work well with this mod the dave f will help a bit more if fitted correctly

    you need to have the car remapped for the mods to get the most out of it

    Thankyou for the advice,
    My car has been remapped by the previous owner, and im guessing with the simota fitted, so I shouldnt expect to lose any bhp by fitting the dave f kit by the sounds of things.

    Devil318is : I got the kit through this forum there was a thread advertising 20 for sale, which got snapped up pretty quickly. I'm not sure the kits are suitable for a 318is though sorry, I think its only for 6 cylinder blocks.
