    Hi, I'm new to this site. I have just bought myself a 'BMW 328i M Sport Coupe E36 Model'. I have been talking to a few people and they say that i can change the manifold on it to increase the power. Not sure which 1. Please can you help?

    Cheers, Griff

    get i off an 325 or 525 called an m50 mate, you can get them on ebay for £115.00 and you will need fitting kit £45 and gasket set £25 should give you around 20bhp +

    A Bbtb, US M3 cams, remap. All these will help things along nicely.

    A good investment might be a good diagnostic check. If you have any dodgy sensors you might be losing 20bhp.

    That's interesting... Not wanting to hijack the OP's thread but why might you be losing 20bhp?

    Surely there would be some diagnostic / service indicator?

    Forgive my ignorance, I have only had mine for 2 weeks Genuine question.

    There's no warning/check engine light on the E36.

    If the ECU repeatedly gets out of range values from a sensor it may run poorly or even ignore all feedback sensors and run off a base map.
