    ditto because the stock zaust is pretty good and will handle the extra power you will get from the manifold

    All day long, do the M50 conversion then have it mapped to take into account the higher flowing manifold. It won't be fuelling quite right otherwise.

    A guy I work with recently did an M50 manifold conversion on his 96 323 coupe and he's well happy with it, still waiting to have it mapped so not even getting the full capability yet either..

    Think he has a 328(?) exhaust aswell though... would have to check that though

    I think its defo the direction im going 1st. Although ive heard a dyno test and set up is better than a remap (got told this by a 323 owner that does remaps?) is this the case ??
