    The general consensus is the standard filter box is about as good as it gets, fancy filters just add a feel good factor.

    The place to spend money is the exhaust and a remap

    itg panel filters are the best to actually make you power.

    As you have a fairly large engine a heat shielded large K&N Cone would actually make a difference. Alternatively you could use the front snorkel of the 3.0L E36 M3, this has an additional air feed that sits in the top of the brake duct, it means you will have to cut a hole in the top of your duct though, nothing major, pop your headlight out and its quite easy. Also use a good panel filter like ITG / K&N and take out the baffle inside the airbox, it's there to reduce noise but also restricts airflow a little.

    You could also try and find another palce to fit an additional airfeed into the existing airbox, take the ducting from the front bottom grille to the new made hole.

    Simota is a good induction kit as well but try to avoid the fake carbon ones as they don't have the venturi/trumpet inside the housing, only the simota and gruppe M have this, but Gruppe M is mega wexpensive, Simota is just the same but a lot cheaper.

    Exhuast - Supersprint, Blueflame, Milltek are all good. Sueprsprint being the best imho.
