    Hi All,

    ive read a lot on here about the 323 M50 inlet manifold conversion and a friend of mine (who races these beasts) has offered me a M50 mainfold for free (woop) but when i bought the car the person who sold it to me said that 'his mechanic friend' told him that it has already had the conversion done.

    Without sounding stupid, how do i tell? i dont wanna be spending a day taking me engine apart if someone has already had the pleaseure,

    what should i look for etc?

    Many thanks!

    If you stand on the passages side of the car and look at the engine
    if you have a m50 manifold fitted the intake pipes will look like they are straight
    If you have a m52 manifold the intake pipes with look like a bunch of bananas starting from the middle spreading out to the cylinders

    You can always post a pics to comfirm what you have or do a google search
