aFe Power MagnumFORCE Stage-2 PRO 5R Cold Air Intake System for our BMW E92 M3


Look what UPS brought us today….. an aFe Power MagnumFORCE Stage-2 PRO 5R Cold Air Intake System for our BMW E92 M3 project car.

This kit was provided to us by our good friends at JleviSW.  Thanks guys!

This Stage 2 air intake system produces 18 max horsepower, 15lbs. x ft. torque and out-flowed the factory intake by 41%. This unique intake system is designed to use the factory intake box to seal the intake tube and filter and tube against unwanted underhood temperatures while increasing air flow and velocity for optimum performance.  This air intake system features a washable/reusable conical Pro 5R air filter for maximum flow and filter life, a dyno tuned intake tube and all the hardware necessary for an easy installation. This system is truly a silent killer.

As you can see, we’ve unboxed the kit and put it on display in the engine bay…. I’m eager to test this thing out, lets get started.


We have to disconnect the connector from the air duct.

Then use a screwdriver to remove the clamp holding the duct to the intake manifold.

Remove the screws holding the air box cover on.

Gross.  Good thing we are changing this filter.

Remove the filter, and vacuum out the inside of the air intake box.

Our new filter is assembled and ready to be installed.

Put the intake into position, and reinstall using the clamps.

Reattach the connector to the aFe air duct.

Reinstall the air box cover.

I’m really excited to get this installed.   Ill post back to this thread after I take the car for a drive.
