    Hi guys, I posted these images in the newbie thread but haven't had any responses so I thought I would try posting them here where they are more likely to be read:

    Below is a picture of my engine bay, which I believe is not standard looking at other pictures on the net.

    As you can see there is a small Hartge badge that looks like this, I have tried contacting them but have had no response, so I'm thinking that it is just stuck on?

    Would really appreciate any advice that can be given as I want to install an induction kit and exhaust but don't want upset what is already on there!

    Wow thats not standard

    didn't know Hartge did manifolds for the M52

    looks more like a schrick - http://www.turnermotorsport.com/html...261.16.017.00C
    have a look at the price! breaths a lot more than a M52 manifold but a little less than M50 but can be modified to breath more

    Ok I've made some progress, as the parts have been fitted by a tuner called Birds. Apparently it has had the intake manifold and performance in/ex cams fitted and a replacement engine fitted in 99 (presumably due to Nikasil?).

    Would a decent intake and exhaust add much to this setup?

    Did you get any specs of the cams?

    looks like a dave F filter or groupe m rep could help a bit

    what exhaust is on there?

    Good detective work, that does look very similar to the one I have on my car! Damm that's almost as much as I paid for the vehicle on just the manifold, but if the M50 one is better, I can't see anyone paying that much for it

    No specs for the cams, to be honest they really helped me out saying what work had been completed as it was for a previous customer! Exhaust is standard but has had the golf tea mod done to it. Seems a little strange to splash out so much on cams in manifold then leave the cheaper bits standard . .

    yes but it can be made to flow more than the m50 and the injector angle is closer to the M52 also
    and its different

    Aha, my initial suspicions were correct, just had this response from Hartge:

    "Somebody bought a HARTGE emblem for steering wheels which we normally put over the original BMW steering wheel emblem,
    and embadded it somehow in your air intake. "

    Gave a load of people in their factory a laugh I imagine, right I'm going out with a screw driver, back in a minute!

    UPDATE: Chipped it off with a single hit, whatever logo was under there previously has been filed/scaped off.

    The badge could well have been added at Birds to be honest mate - they're the UK distributor and fitter for Hartge

    Wow, it's nice to see something a bit different.

    Here's some info from the Birds website. http://www.birdsauto.com/content/col...3611366328.pdf

    You could always give them a bell and say you are trying to trace your cars history especially as you are interested in future work/ modifications. I have spoke to them in the past and they were helpful.
