The BMW 650i and 550i have a powerful 4.8L V8 under the hood, but the OEM intake leaves a lot of be desired and leaves many left wanting for power. Elliott’s a V8 guy and so working out how to get more out of the BMW V8 under the hood of the E60/E63 was a challenge Senior Mod Expert Elliott was definitely up to. This customer reached out to Mod Expert Elliott, who suggested an aFe Power Intake for E60 550i/E63 65oi, which is one of the few ways you can unlock more power from the 4.8L under the 6’ers long hood.

The aFe Power intake for the BMW 650i outflows the OEM intake by more than 45%, and smooths airflow going into the transition for the intake tract. Featuring a molded intake tube, this intake’s plastic construction means it has excellent heat insulation properties, meaning your air charge will stay nice and cool.

The heat shielded design helps ensure that the intake is drawing in only cool fresh air, and the aFe Power 5-1/2” in Conical Filter with inverted top ensures maximum airflow and lets you hear the roar of that V8 under the hood. 54-11142ais2
