    The price to just convert the manifold is only £175 not £390
    To be frank with you i called them asking how could i get the remaining 22 bhp from the engine knowing that it was limited by the BMW.
    They quoted me 240 pounds fitted by them and they told me that there was something in the manifold limiting the power and i was told that not only i would get more power also would get more MPG without any other performance enhancing kits because i did not like messing around with the car to much.So thats the story i only noticed your price at 390 pounds and i made the comment. No personal interest in it what so ever only trying to be helpful to fellow members.

    are you sure that the intake manifold is the only diff between 323i and 325i? i mean, it's a bit too much (22bhp) for a manifold..

    Yes mate its the same engine its only de-tuned. 323-325 its the same engine different manifold. If you change it u get more power and more MPG i was told.

    There's other differences, one's the M50 iron block the others the alloy M52, the twin exit exhaust, one's OBD1 the others OBD2 etc.

    The manifold replacement is a proven mod, knowing of all the positive reviews and of Alpina527's knowledge I know who I would use.

    if you've put it this way, then i think you could ask them for a dyno test before and after, and see what they say.
