M7 Strut Tower and BMC OTA together ?

Hey guys
I'm having a little problem here.
I have MCS N18 with M7 Strut Tower "J Brace" and want to buy BMC OTA(OVAL TRUMPET AIRBOX) but not sure if those two will fit together.

So, Could anyone enlighten me with this matter ?

Thanks in advance guys

you are pretty specific man, you should be good, the engine may be different but the body isn't so much.. at least in the front.

Hey joey.k did you ever try the BMC filter with your M7 brace? I have the brace and am considering the bmc oval filter.
Thanks!

His last activity on the forum was the post above in 2014. I hope someone else can answer your question.

Thanks dmath. I searched the forum and could't find much on installing the BMC air boxes at all. They seem interesting, less complicated install but might rattle for the same reason?

My guess is it should work, being that the BMC does sit far back.

CDA with JCW brace



No brace OTA



OTA turned on the N18

Thanks ECS, the oval trumpet with the option to turn on its side looks like the way to go. I have oil catch can lines to squeeze in there too.
