Power Gain Chart for BMW M5 with K&N Air Intake
K&N dynamometer test show an estimated 20.7 horsepower gain at 5700 rpm. The M5 is a dual
throttle body car, so the K&N Air Intake System is also dual to match the stock
system. There are two short ram intake systems that include two flat black aluminum
tubes, two K&N High-Flow Air Filters (RU-5147) and two powder coated steel heat
In addition to power gains, K&N Air Intake Systems are also designed to
increase filtering capacity and improve throttle response.
The heat shields are engineered to isolate the oversized K&N High-Flow Air
Filters from engine bay heat. This intake also makes use of the M5's
factory fresh air ducts which provide cooler outside air to the individual K&N Air
Filters translating into more power.
The 69-2003TFK comes with two air intake units placed in opposite corners near the fender wells behind the
headlights of the M5. The Mass Air Sensor adaptors are precision CNC machined,
6061 billet aluminum for accurate Mass Air Flow sensor readings.
It takes about 90 minutes to
install this K&N Air Intake. It does not remove the
stock intake plenums which keep a clean look under the hood. This K&N Air Intake
System, like all other K&N Air Intake Systems is backed by the famous K&N
Million Mile Limited Warranty.
