    K&N Engineering creates a one-off custom air box to feed the dual side draft Webers bolted to our freshly built M10 engine in our Clarion Builds 1974 BMW 2002

    The team at K&N Engineering were originally planning to fabricate a conventional cold air intake with piping bolted to the carburetors and a cone filter tucked neatly behind the driver side headlight. After the Clarion Builds BMW 2002 arrived at their facility and they got a good look at the attention to detail and tradition elements that went into the restoration they decided to change gears and go with a more classic approach to the air box. To keep the factory anesthetics their engineers designed a custom top and bottom plate to house an oval filter spanning the width of both of our newly installed side draft Webbers. The bottom plate looked at home nestled among the carburetors and Ireland Engineering intake manifold so it retained it brushed aluminum finished. To match the engine's valve cover, the top plate was powder coated in black and then a K&N logo was machined into the aluminum, but not just any logo would do. In order to give the final product a period correct vintage look a throwback K&N logo was used to adorn the top plate. Behind all the classic good looks is a modern High-Flow air filter that will not only protect our BMW's engine for years to come but will also feed its ravenous hunger for oxygen so that it can deliver maximum performance.
