    Hi all, I'm wanting to do the M50 inlet manifold upgrade on my 328.

    I'm guessing it is not as simple as just swapping the manifold,what other parts and work are involved?

    What sort of power improvements will I be getting?

    Many thanks

    From memory you get 220-230hp from manifold and mapping.

    Do a search mate, iv seen loads of threads in the past couple of months

    I'll be doing it to mine soon.

    Hi Buddy,

    PM Alpina527 he's your man for the m50/bbtb conversion.
    He will have ready to fit or can re-work your existing ones.

    on a 323 with a m50 manifold and remap you can hit 200bhp so ide imagine a 30bhp for the 328 too but unsure researching it at the mo as ive got hold of a 328 just want to spruce it up befor the lump goes in the 323
