    I wish-not mine-its pics of an E46(Should've kept quiet there but can't take the credit)

    With panel filters I have heard that the OEM from BMW actually worked a lot better than these upmarket ones and is a lot cheaper too

    I have a dave f myself and would definitely recommend it. Gives proven gains compared to other kits. Sounds evil from 4k on aswell. Puts a smile on my face everytime. Simota gruppe m replica's do the same job but are a bit more blingy with a carbon fibre heat shield, and are a bit dearer too iirc.

    same as me...
    I cant stop flooring it to hear the noise. My mpg has gone down loads since i have fitted it. Cant stop opening the throttle for the noise...

    Its a great mod alright!

    I've the manifold done aswell, and the 2 work great together. You could also fit a 328 exhaust system, its supposed to give a few gains, and a e36 m3 3.0 lsd will give quicker acceleration due to the gearing. You only have to fit the drive shaft flanges from your current diff and it will fit no problem. Piece of piss!

    Ive got the M3 Lsd sat in my boot at the moment..
    I have a 325 so the ratio is the same, but it will mean more sideways action for me..
    Excellent mod for the 328 and 323 as well, like you said it will give better acceleration as the standard 328 and 323 have a 2.93 diff and the 3.0m3 is a 3.15...

    i also have a K&N air filter, in the OEM box, but didn't know about the restriction thing.. i'll defo look it up and remove if possible this afternoon. but why is it there, in the first place?

    also, i've seen a dave f induction kit for sale, but the seller said it was for a 323i. i need it for a 325i. are they model specific? or it's the same kit for all straight 6 engines? 10x!

    I wanted to do my 323i manifold change and i found a cheaper guy than that of ALPINA guy. he charges around 390 pounds for the conversion as for me i was quoted by one company in HARTFORD they would do it for 240 pounds.If you look online you will find them but i just think this guy is a bit expensive seeing as he does not remap and only changes the manifold.
    My BMW history= E36 318IS, 323I,Mini Cooper, E46 320 D SE and now E39 530D. awesome

    God im so excited about this manifold conversion for mine, its gonna take me 7 months to save for it to include a full sports stainless exhaust too. So ill put it all on at the same time and see what happens hehe.

    Oh, do i need a remap on ECU?

    Yes but does that include a big bore throttle body and bigger asc body?

    The price to just convert the manifold is only £175 not £390
