I am a big believer in leaving Bimmer engines stock. If you boost the intake, many cranks and main bearings are not made for the extra stress. Just my 2 cents

do what ever you want to do man, it's your ride.

If you are going with the forced induction you are going the right way with AA. They have the experience and knowledge to do it right. Just make sure you ask a lot of questions and get good answers, you don't want to mess up your baby.
