Gruppe M Ram Air System

Looking for that perfect intake for your E46, but don't want what everyone else has? The Gruppe M Air Ram Intake System is for you, revel in the finest that Gruppe M's engineers has to offer, the top of the range ""High-End Intake Systems"" is made without compromise to maximize the overall performance of all air intake systems as one complete unit. A conical air filter, placed within the inner and outer of the center cone, this controls air turbulences that in turn increases the speed of airflow to accelerate. Each carbon intake is custom made specially to meet the specification of each individual car and other mechanisms within the systems, such as heat insulation and air-cooling are also carefully designed to work in unison to produce the optimum performance as the whole unit.

Airflow is a significant ingredient to the combustion cycle of a high performance engine. Therefore, the intake system cannot be ignored and must stand up to the task of supplying the engine with not only clean air (free of any residue or particle matter), but also maintain ample cooling to provide the highest density possible, in addition to properly utilizing the ram effect at high speeds, to effectively increase the volume of the intake charge. These are key ingredients to bring out the full potential of your engine. Gruppe M's engineers take all of this into account when designing our special Ram Air Systems. The finest materials are used from the start with only the finest carbon fiber or carbon Kevlar materials, hand crafted to ensure proper fit and finish. Gruppe M's technology partnership with K&N, means only the finest four-layer cotton filters are used, custom designed and manufactured to Gruppe M's strict standards. Together, K&N’s long history of air filter design combined with Gruppe M track proven technology means we can offer you the finest ram air induction systems available.

Carbon intake duct
Isolating the engine steam and delivering cool air to the filter.
It performs the function of an air chamber, and giving priority to intake efficiency, the shape is specially designed for each model, taking into consideration the engine characteristics and the character of the vehicle. We also accept orders for the production of carbon cablers.


Quick release center clamp
To improve maintenance performance, quick-release clamps are being used.

Center cone
In order to achieve even better air-intake rectification, center cones have been installed in the filter tops and inners.
High-dimensional four-layer cotton filter
The filter has multiple layers of natural cotton, strengthened using stainless steel mesh. It is a wet type using special oil. It is accordion-shaped, maintaining an enlarged air-intake area with control of any deformation due to the negative pressure. With a grid structure, the filter rectifies the air-intake while filtering.

Funnel ring
Extreme priority has been given to intake performance, and a funneling ring has also been installed on the adapter (except for some models).

Each vehicle Fitting Adaptor
Because the adaptors are specially designed for each model, they can be bolted on.
