Air Intake E55 for 2005

Has anyone had or know any W211 E55 owners that have installed, or used Fabtech-Performance's Aluminum Cold Air Induction Intakes on their W211 E55? is it worth the HP gain? Is it a good DIY? Or should install be handled by professionals with shop?

Considering the same as much for the aesthetics as the HP gain. The Fabtech looks great and would I imagine be a boost for resale.

The spectre canisters used in the intakes being discussed in this thread are good for stock m113k motors and lightly modified m113k motors. The cone filters in the canisters are good for @250 hp per side. they are tiny filters......even the 5" option. Looks and sounds good, though.....


*On the dyno, I gained @4 rwhp with the Fabtech intake (only mod was a supercharger pulley by Eurocharged). You need to tell the company making the intake if you have a factory throttle body or larger 82mm+ for the y-pipe. Another thing to consider is that you have to install a nipple in your intake for your crankcase ventilation hose. When I was putting more than 500hp to the wheels, the dyno showed the engine was starving for air with this type of intake. Then again, that is getting crazy with the modifications.
