BMW Z3 2.8, M Roadster/Coupe Conforti Cold-Air Intake Kit. Part #: JCINTAKEROADSTER. forti Cold-Air Intake Kit. Part #: JCINTAKEROADSTER. Applications: 1997 - 2000 Z3 2.8 97-98, 97-00 M Roadster/Coupe (Z3). This kit simply replaces the very restrictive factory air box with a free flowing, reusable ITG foam air filter and mandrel bent intake tube which provides smooth cool air flow to the engine. Unlike similar styled “cone filter” kits the Conforti intake features a custom molded heat shield. This shield provides protection from the engine's power-robbing hot air and is a perfect fit to your engine bay. The hood acts as the intake’s cover – completely sealing the filter off. Intake air is drawn in from the factory inlet between the radiator and the headlight. Metric hardware and rubber stripping is also included to give the kit a factory installed appearance. A 12-page instruction book with photos makes installation a breeze for weekend mechanics or professionals. No cutting or modifying of stock components is required. There is not a better Cold Air Intake Kit on the market. Why do we use an ITG Foam filter? Because it’s the best-performing and safest low-restriction performance air filter you can buy. With the Shark Injector and this intake, gains were as much as 17 hp / +8 ft-lbs torque at peak (with a big torque gain in the mid-range). Testing has shown these filters to remove all particles above 10 microns in size. The particles between 10 and 20 are most harmful to your engine. Compare this to cotton gauze, which cannot filter below 20 microns. The ITG has a much higher tolerance for dust penetration than other filters on the market, maintaining up to 80% of its flow capacity when dirty. Lower maintenance than other filters, it simply needs to be wiped off or the occasional wash. This kit fits Z3 2.8 single Vanos (97-98) and the 97-00 M Roadster/Coupe.
