I don't know of any stock automotive engine that doesn't benefit from less exhaust restriction if correctly done. While no longer available, Dinan exhaust designed exclusively for a stock 3.0 to deliver the best performance and great sound with no drone printed a gain of 5hp and 4ft/lbs torque. From my experience Dinan is always conservative. Lower restriction will become more and more important to maximize gains from other mods you are looking into. More air in means more exhaust has to get out to achieve max benefit. It's not a bad plan to buy something now that gets you the sound you want without knowing if it helps performance, you can always do more later such as electric cutouts that you can open a little or a lot depending on you mood. I have had great success with the QTP brand.

Your listing says it is for 4.4 or 4.6 so I just want to be sure that it will also work with the 3.0. I figure itís the same exhaust at the end but just want to make sure Iím right

I know that others have put factory 4.4 and 4.8 mufflers on their 3.0i, so I believe you would have no problem with fitment. The rear apron on 3.0i even has a removable ring for moving to quad tips. Any exhaust shop would be able to make these work, regardless. I listed them for v8ís because Iíve not seen 3.0i trucks get the investment of typical v8 owners. If my 3.0 were the manual Iíve always wanted, I would probably save them for that application, but have an itch to get into a 135i before BMW starts churning out stupid FWD 1ers...and such an adventure will not be cheap!

Something about the purr of an in-line has always made me happy, and while V8s have more power I think Iíd stick with this. Speaking of manual, is it possible just to drop a manual trans into an automatic x5 without extreme modification?

Also, would you mind if I message you directly to talk about the eBay listing and other upgrades that could be done on the X since you seem to have pretty in depth knowledge?

It has been done (there are threads on it here - look for WilliamX5) but it IS a lot of work, with quite a bit of fabrication and coding. And in most cases, the swap has lost the 4WD, moving to RWD. Mainly because 2WD manual transmission are more common. Can be done as 4WD though, by sourcing a manual transmission from an E53 X5.

depending on your application, there are a few Dinan MAF/TB goodies for sale on ebay.com right now. There is a Dinan MAF for sale with other Dinan goodies that would probably fit most E53s (flat connection) then there is a single sale for the older MAF with round connector...
