NEW RELEASE: Dinan Stage 2 Tune & Carbon Fiber Cold Air Intake

Dinan F85 X5M / F86 X6M Carbon Fiber Cold Air Intake

Part Number: D760-0047
Applications: 2015+ F85 X5M SAV, 2015+ F85 X5M SAV
Release Date: Today, December 29th, 2016. Please see note below for details.

Description: 'Striking' is the first word that comes to mind when you pop the hood of a F8x X5M/X6M with a Dinan carbon fiber cold air intake system. The under hood appearance is completely changed and set off by intricate carbon detailing that make the engine compartment just as flattering as the sleek exterior lines the vehicle possesses. While the aesthetics are the most recognizable change to the system what is more impressive is the functionality that lies beneath the carbon fiber lid.

The care that went into the filter design is what makes the system function as well as it does. The stock filters are restrictive with only a minuscule 89inē in total filter area. The stock filters also only allow air to be drawn in from the front and rear instead of around the entire surface area. Dinan's custom filters on the other hand eliminate this wasted area and allow air to be drawn in from all around and increase the total filter area to 292.4inē. That's an unheard of 228% increase in filter area over the stock setup. In order to accommodate these massive filters the stock lid needed to be enlarged as much as the hood clearance would allow. This gave us the opportunity to implement it's signature carbon fiber look and appeal while also increasing the overall volume of the air box by ~15%. The increased volume of the air box allows the larger filters to ingest more air at any given moment and elicit a slightly more audible and sporty tone over its stock counterpart. This optimized design yields increased HP/TRQ throughout the power band and shows consistent gains over stage 1 when combined with the stage 2 DINANTRONICS Performance Tuner.

Benefits of the Dinan Carbon Fiber High Flow Air Intake for the BMW F85 X5M and F86 X6M:
  • More Power: Max gains of 23 HP @ 5500 RPM and 25 lb-ft of torque @ 4000 RPM when combined with the Stage 2 DINANTRONICS Performance Tuner and exhaust over stage 1 tuning.
  • Sportier Sound
  • Improved throttle response
  • ~15% Larger volume air box via a Carbon Fiber lid that allows for the spacing needed for the larger filters.
  • 228% increase in filter area (stock: 44.5inē each, Dinan: 146.2inē each)
  • Dinan filters draw air in from all around versus the stock filters which only draw from the front and back of the filter.
  • Bolt-on installation

Please Note: Due to limited production capacity the F85/F86 X5M/X6M carbon fiber cold air intake is highly susceptible to back orders.

After months of production issues instead of delaying launch any further waiting for stock to build up we are releasing the product knowing full well we be in an instant back-order situation. Our estimated back order timeline is 4-6 weeks shortly after launch.

Dinan F85 X5M / F86 X6M DINANTRONICS Stage 2

Part Number: D440-0047-ST2
Applications: 2015+ F85 X5M SAV, 2015+ F85 X5M SAV
Release Date: Today, December 29th, 2016.
Product Page - Details /Additional Photos / Pricing: http://www.dinancars.com/product/d44...ries&mid=1241/

Description:The baddest SAV on the market is about to set the bar even higher!

With the release of the cold air intake for the F85/F86 X5M/X6M platform the engine can realize more power by virtue of greater air flow. Particularly effective in the upper RPM range where horsepower and torque typically fall off, stage 2 with the Dinan carbon fiber cold air intake holds the power much more effectively for longer lasting enjoyment. With a bump in power of up to 23 HP and 25 lb-ft of torque over stage 1, the combination sets this versatile vehicle further ahead of its competitors.

Difference in cost between the stages + the associated hardware.

Forgive my ignorance but what's the difference in numbers?

Stage 1 reaches 702 hp without any other mods
Stage 2 requires exhaust + intake for 716 hp

Wouldn't you just be better off doing S1?

Technically, stage 2 doesn't require either hard part but you will not be garnering the advertised gains without them. In reality the exhaust only contributes a slight bit of power at the top end of the power but nothing that is really noteworthy. The exhaust for all intents and purposes is a sound only upgrade. The intake and stage 2 are where you are getting the power from although again you could run stage 2 without the intake and you would still get a minimal gain from over stage 1 due to a slight boost increase in the stage. You will be running slightly richer however as the stage 2 tune is expecting more air from the revised intake that isnt there. The intake also helps with drivability as the throttle response is improved.

Since it will be the next question....Without the intake and just stage 2 you may get another ~5-7 HP over stage 1 (peak).

Stage 1 tune only = 702 peak hp.

Stage 2 tune plus intake plus exhaust = 716 peak hp.

14 peak hp increase plus better sound and drivability. Kudos to Dinan for developing products for the X5M !

Maybe I'm missing something here...

Stage 1 is just the Tune without Intake and Exhaust, which yields 702 hp max?

The Intake can offer a max hp increase of 23 hp.

In theory, these 2 combined, would offer 725 hp max?

Does Stage 2 require the Exhaust due to it's programming or can it utilize just the Intake?

How about if you decide to go with a different Full Cat Back Exhaust (i.e. GT Haus, RPi, Eisenmann, Akrapovic) - will Stage 2 be compatible or does it require some additional programming?

Thank You!

PEOPLE HOW WOULD THIS COMPARE TO RACECHIP

There were several reviews of multiple piggybacks but not a single comparison in power, feel and speed. I wish if both RC and Dinan Stg.2 could go head to head to understand the ability of each companies!! Please help out

If you increase the total boost by 3 psi with any aftermarket controller, you'll get the same hp increase. Drivability is a different story. Boost is boost, doesn't matter which name is on the box.

If you go beyond a typical boost adder and alter the factory boost curve, (hold it linear at higher rpm instead of a curve) you will make more average hp and go quicker.

Does Dinan use the curve or linear boost hold?

Its not as easy as just adding the numbers together. Peak gains and max gains don't always occur at the same RPM. In this case Peak numbers occurs at ~6000 RPM. Max HP gain over stock is also at that location. However the max HP gain over stage 1 (whats quoted) occurs in the 4000-4250 RPM range.

Stage 2 does not require the intake or the exhaust technically but if you want to get the quoted power gains you would want the intake and tune. The exahust for all practical purposes is just a sound improvement. The power gained from it is all at the upper part of the RPM register. Would work for all exhausts as well, no matter the brand, and not need any specific adjustments. The exception would be if the exhaust removed the CAT's in which case it would result in a CEL which the system does not correct for (emissions legality) nor optimize for.

The aim with the turbo engines with all successive stages is to "flip the tip" of the upper HP curve so that instead of falling off at peak it continues to pull all the way to redline. This usually means having varying amounts at boost at the various loads in order to achieve that.

First batch shipped late last week (day of release). Get a handful of CF lids every week (the slow part of the process) so we will be shipping some every week going forward. Hopefully the backlog won't grow faster then what we ship. Fingers crossed.

Dear Respected Dinan Engineering,
You have not commented on Onfirex5. I have RC installed and I got a call from your rep. in AbuDhabi about the stage 2 before it was publicly announced here. It will take some track numbers to convince me of the performance and a Vbox too

Onfirex5 didn't have a question. At least none that I saw.

The Abu Dhabi guys had the first 2 in existence and were part of some BMW event they had going on at the track there with Abu Dhabi Motors. Whether Abu Dhabi Motors did any real testing with them I couldn't say, but they usually do. From what has been relayed back here though everyone that partook in that event and drove those 2 cars had a blast... I believe the exact quote was "couldnt get the guys out of the car". Seeing as they are in your climate and conditions you may be best to inquire with Abu Dhabi Motors directly as they would be the guys that would have the information at hand if they took any.

We have very little direct interaction to be honest and it goes mostly through that one agent you know. We just supply parts and commentary and requests get sent back.

I assume you guys rectified the issues with the CF cover not sealing tightly over the factory box?

That was resolved awhile ago. The CF lids not being damaged coming out of the molds were the last issue that took seemingly months to resolve. Lots of different molds were thrown away battling that. =/
