    Hi I have read that it may be possible to fit a e36 throttle bodies and manifold on a e46 alpina b3 3.3. if so would it bolt on or is there mods needed. Also i read that the m3 cams would make a different to.
    Any help would be great
    Cheers rob

    was thinking of small mods.
    i have only changed the air filter to a pipercross.
    is there any little mods like this.
    maybe underdrive pulleys do these make any differents, remove the viscous fan and put a 330i electric fan? would this help the engine rev easier. stuff like this any idea's would be helpiful

    cheers rob

    You already have the cams, so as already stated, leave this superb engine as it is. It really is a peach straight out of the box.

    From what I have read Alpina have done a very good job on the 3.3. They changed the intake,crank,pistons, and headers. I've read that the cams are also different but never seen any proof of this.
    It is based on an m52 engine so you should be able to swap the cams from a US e36 m3. I'm unsure if your current cams will be better or not. Will require a tune afterwards to get the most out of it.
    Do the 3.3's have an LSD?
    I've only ever looked into these engines as I want the crank,pistons,and intake.
    Out of interest is it an iron block or an alloy one?
    Getting more power without forced induction might be a bit of task
    Under drive pulleys and removing the viscous fan are hardly noticeable.

    Obviously the chap doesnt think its powerful enough. So instead of just say leave it, give the guy some ideas.

    Water/Methanol injection normally releases between 8-14bhp and thats relatively cheap.

    underdrive pulleys, and fan delete are hardly noticeable.
    You could ditch the dual mass flywheel as well if you were to do them.(assuming you have a manual)

    I've never heard of NA cars using water/meth injection. Do you have a link to anyone getting benefits from this? Sorry to go off topic OP
    There are better ways of cooling the intake
