So I am now almost finished installing the M5 intakes along with the Ramair dry filters. everything is bolt on except obviously I've removed the airbox filter from the original M5 parts.My plan is to fabricate a channel to direct the air around the radiator (similar to the M5) and onwards to a heat shield to avoid heat soak.

The map sensors are also plug and play between applications, I've fitted new gasket seals and bolts just about everywhere for best practise. I can confirm that X6M PCV lines reach the the M5 intakes on the turbos perfectly except the short one on the left side of the manifold cover. A little fabrication of a smaller vacuum line is required... (nothing major) see pictures below

The biggest PITA at the minute is that I am trying to re-route all lines and wiring harnesses as much as possible to get a cleaner look ...

Yep sorry for the lack of pictures, I've moved most of the accessories to where the Cabin air filter is located behind the windshield panel. longer vacuum lines have been ran through and under the left fender. Since this picture I have moved some more stuff. My aim is to get the engine bay as clean as possible before I start to fabricate some custom pieces around the engine bay to hide empty voids and give the bay a more curved appearance, either welded aluminium panels painted along with the strut bars or maybe carbon fibre panels.

ATM we are making custom air channels which will channel air from around the radiator up to the Ramair filters which requires a custom heat shield trap / box. PITA as on both sides of the engines slightly different ares to build solutions around, one side houses the ABS box and the other side the coolant tank etc etc. am getting there though. pictures to follow soon.

Ramair filters installed today, next to start the front air scoops and build some boxes around the filters to avoid heat soak ..

Nice, I had that same setup before I made some cold air ones, but heat soak was so bad. I ended up making my own...

They would burn my hand before, so I added the gold tape, made a huge difference!

Good job, yep I followed your build a while back.

I致e found myself using the lower parts of the M5 air boxes with modification just to retain the tray and shape so that I can make a template from each side before I either cast them in carbon fibre or send them to my friend to make a copy from aluminium
