Here is something I knocked together because I don't have a CSL bumper. But it worked really well.

Used OEM CSL pipe connected to some pipe I found and drilled a hole into the air duct inside the bumpe.






View from the front, you can see the main drain pipe mod followed in behind by the new pipe to feed the airbox when flap is closed.

Thanks Mike , I'm very happy with it actually. Was lucky I found the pipe I found because I bet if I went looking for that exact type of pipe I'd never find it. I think it's a stove flu or something. Will make changing the air filter a little bit more of an effort

I recieved my oem map sensor today, apparently they have changed designs.....? Anyone confirm this.

Also, for guys who experience the horrid high pitch whistle after install...

I went months trying to figure this out, it is caused by the large drain hole on the bottom of the box, venturi like effect causes a god awful noise under cruising acceleration.

I fixed this by placing a pvc T in the hole with a bit of black rtv. Noise is gone. Some guys enlarge the hole, but i didnt feel comfortable doing this.

No link, but it has been documented on the m3forum.
