    How/where can the blower be mounted on the M43TUB19 engine? Adaptor plates?

    And what about pipework? Does it have to be custom made or is there something else that will fit?

    I am intrigued, I'd definitely be interested in trying this if it isn't going to cost a fortune!

    EDIT: Nevermind, I just found the relevant forum.

    I think he means steering rack.

    I don't like the polyurethane bushes (as used by powerflex), I had them on my old e36. Although they were ok on the trailing arm bushes, on the frt suspension amrs they gave quite bad vibration through the steering wheel when you went on coarse grained tarmac & rough surfaces, as well being a bit noisey. The noise I could live with but the vibration pissed me off, I ditched them & fitted solid rubber M3 bushes instead. The extra castor it gave (offset hole) finally made it self-center properly & made the steering feel more solid , noise was barely any better than the polys but the vibration was gone.

    Question is, for the e46s, can the M3 bushes be made to fit a normal e46?
    I've got a spare M3 bush+brkt at work & the brkt is certainly different, when I remember I'll offer it up to my car, but in the meantime does anyone know if they can be adapted to fit? Or could the M3 bushes be pressed out & fitted to standard e46 brkts?

    do you find you get the vibrations a lot when pulling up to junctions under braking etc? i have just got a 330i e46 coupe and i get vibration, the guy i bought it off said it had just had poly bushes, i don't get anywhere near said vibrations on my 318i touring which i assume is running standard bushes.

    If it's vibrating under braking then it's most probably the brakes at fault, probably warped &/or rusted discs.
    If it were the susp bushes it would vibrate regardless of the brakes.

    As I alluded to earlier, it was vibrating anytime I drove on rough surfaces & course grained tarmac.
    I guess polys could make distorted discs feel even worse.

    i have a vibration when braking and sometimes on steering, this is on my e46 330ci vert, i suspect the steering coupling though as brakes aren't old or warped as the vibration is pretty much the same regardless of speed.

    If it's the steering coupling then it will vibrate regardless of whether your braking or not.

    Can anyone reccomend a decent decat exhaust for a 2001 E46 320 Ci? I have a Pipercross panel air filter on its way and thought a decat would be a nice next step?
