    Hi, please excuse my ignorance here, but if I were only to change the inlet manifold, and nothing else, on my 328 sport for one from a 325, I would see a power increase?
    If so, what are the usual figures acheived from doing this mod?
    Cheers

    Yes you would mate, say around 20bhp as a rule, however you will need a steel gasket if you use your 328 throttle body

    That sounds good, where would I be able to get a manifold and steel gasket from?

    should be able to pick both up from ebay mate, they do a manifold conversion kit and gasket set, i think the firms called bmconversions, have a look, they are loads of threads showing how to do this on here to help you

    You can get a properly re machined M50 manifold and bigger throttle body from me. These will bolt straight on in exactly the same way as your M52 manifold with no leaks.

    Drop me a pm if you want any info.
