    Hey peeps.

    I have heard rumours that a full 3.2 Evo exhaust (Inc manifolds) is a direct fit onto said car and this increases power to the same sort of levels as the M50 inlet manifold swap.

    Is this true and is it worth buying a whole Evo exhaust or will i be as well off to buy an aftermarket performance exhaust specifically for my car??

    Cheers.
    Dale.

    It sound like swaynies has been fabricated to fit as the cats and rear box are not a direct fit to the 328i...
    The bore of the evo pipe is about half inch bigger than the 328 pipe. A complete evo system will fit onto the M52 with the evo manifold and cats. A rear box needs modification to fit on its own....

    Cool. Thanks for the info guys Im after a full manifold to back box set any way. Full manifold backs are fairly easy to find for about £200 but the manifolds are proving to be a bit more difficult to come across :(

    Yeah, the manifolds are getting hard to come by. You will need an evo one because the lambda sensors are mounted in them the same as yours.

    Search out a seller on ebay called D4CJR, he breaks a lot of them and usually has a couple for sale....

    They are a bit like that on there. They just seem to flame each other all the time...
    We try to help on here and keep it constructive. Keep us posted how you get on with the exhaust and throttle body....

    Hey iv just noticed i already have D4CJR as a saved member on my ebay lol. Was speaking to him a few weeks ago about this very subject.

    Yeah will do. Exhaust is going to be a few weeks. Shes booked into the body shop next week so my pocket needs a while to recover from that lol.
