    Fitted The M50 Manifold today and its really good, pulls all the way through the revs,didnt take long to fit theres just not much space to play with,i only think you can prepare your self to a point and then you just have to throw your self in and get on with it, really glad i spent the time to do it tho,got a few more things to fit before i hope look into having a remap! but for now i will be enjoying the extra power! i am really impressed

    Speak to Simon at Emaps or AP tuning who are both forum vendors. I think they both can do remaps for yours.....

    is the m50 manifold upgrade just a straight swap? i drive an e39 528, which i assume has the same engine as the 328 of the same year? (1999) so by putting a 325 or 525 manifold on mine would increase bhp, or have a got this all mixed up ??? lol, help :-)
