One fellow posted here about his own lightly customized B MW (Z4 IIRC) intake and airbox mods that got him up to around and I think over 110% VE. He even built his own simple but accurate test system.
Hmmm, I think I worked out VE of an S65 at around 91% @ 8000rpm, which is very good in today's CAT filled society. Always open to see a more scientific calculation.
