    Hello, i have just brought a e36 328i, i needs a bit of work for a MOT but thought i would sort the important things first. will a M3 exhaust manifold fit on to my engine and what sort of extra power will i get (is it worth changing). I have the M50 inlet manifold coming tomorrow which i have heard you get a extra 10 - 15 bhp from, is this true???

    thanks, Rob

    a m3 system will fit from the manifolds back and shoudl give a few HP gain and same with the M50manifold you will gain a better top end above 4k revs and the 15hp gains are achievable with a TheEnd remap check the forum vendor section

    Exhaust manifold will fit, but it will need the rest of the M3 exhaust to match up with it.
    Try and get a 3.2 evo version as that has lambda holes in the manifold (like the 328s) as the 3.0 has no lambda holes in it.

    Intake manifold and Bbtb will give around 23 bhp on their own. The exhaust mods will give much less

    thanks for the advice, i have the intake maifold in the back of my van (£30 for that) and the exhaust manifold is the one with the O2 sensors in, which is something i hadn't thought about (£50 for that).
