    I have a 323i, looking to add my first engine mods to it. Currently has the M3 body kit on it, and a de-cat

    I see people saying to get the 325 manifold, where others say the M50. Are these both the same or are they different. And how can I tell?

    EDIT:
    Just doing some looking around, the manifold is plasic? I was thinking it would be metal?

    Also, all I need to do is buy the M50 inlet manifold which is off any 325i (regardless of age) and it will replace my 323i one without an issue of any extra parts?

    Or I can supply a fully machined manifold that fits straight on with no T pieces, tye wraps, etc. This utilises everything in it's original positions as it would be on the M52.


    Here is a pic of the standard M52 manifold items.



    Here is my converted M50 manifold with everything in exactly the same place.
