    Hi bud,

    Don't think it's possible on the M52TU engine but pm Alpina527 he's your man to advise better.

    Basically, you need a 330i intake manifold & DISA valve (the 330i Disa is bigger than the 328i), and a remap afterwards (optional).

    The gains are allegedly mostly at the top end.

    I have a manifold, Disa etc all ready for my brother's conversion - must hassle him about doing it soon
