    Cosmos Racing Long Tube CAI with M3 Ballast Relocation- NC - $200 SHIPPED

    Copy and pasted from my E46F ad so it's more general to all E46 330. Let's get ZHP specific here for a minute.

    **Most likely will not fit facelift coupes without trimming and creativity. Facelift sedan either must have AL headlights, Halogens, or if ZKW you will have to extend your ballast harness wires. I didn't realize this until after I bought it. I also don't want to remove my brake duct. You could maybe get around removing the brake duct by running a very short filter but I haven't tested that idea so no guarantees. Now, onto the rest of the ad...**

    Selling a now discontinued Cosmos Racing (not Cosmo) long tube CAI for the E46 330 Coupe and Sedan. Excellent condition. Will fit other E46s (323i, 325i, 328i) with an adapter for the smaller MAF. Will not fit Facelift Coupes. Requires HID ballast to be relocated. Facelift Sedans with ZKW headlights may have to extend ballast wires. Pre-facelift cars, and cars with AL or Bosch headlights, or halogens, should be plug and play. If you're not sure, just message me.

    Recently cleaned and re-oiled the K&N filter and am including the M3 ballast relocation bracket kit with cover. This intake is a molded silicone piece by Cosmos Racing. This is a replica of the Dinan long tube intake. Puts the filter right beside where the fog lamp is so you don't have to worry about heat soak.

    No issues. Asking $200 Shipped. Local pickup will be cheaper. Located near High Point, NC

    Fyi to potential buyers this long tube setup is without a doubt the best intake you can put on the car for power. I ran something similar for a while and it performed great and was only noisy when you got on it, which sounded awesome.

    I eventually went back to a short ram and traded some power and cabin noise for throttle response, but a long tube would be great for someone with an automatic that doesn't need to rev match downshifts.

    Not on hand. There was a thread either here or on e46f with a guy that did a decent write up with pics for either this or the Dinan Long Tube which shows him extending his ballast wires.
