    Hello,
    First of all, idd like to say sorry for making a topic on the M50 again, but since im Russian, im having trouble fully understanding the manuals, so a few advices would be nice. :oops:

    Well first of all ive bought a M50 intake - part number ending 730 2.5 from a nice forum member for 60£
    Ive recieved this:

    So i have a 328 1997, planning to use the original 2.8 TB , would like to keep the ASC until i get a M3 LSD.
    Questions:
    The parts needed for this conversion dont seem to be that special, i dont need all the plastic covers to sit 200% accurate and i dont mind using cable ties.
    What parts i should keep from the part ive recieved?
    As i read on the internet parts marked as 2 can be covered with a wheel bolt?!? (what exactly is that for?) and since i have some sensor in it i can just leave it as it is...
    Part numbered 3 - have no idea what should be used from there ,and what are those for(vacum pipes?)...
    and last: To fit the TB every one says 2 gaskets need to be used. - so that means i keep the gasket from the M50 where it is now, and remove my gasket from the M52 and use it there too?

    Im really sorry about stupid questions , but i never playied with the intake manifold, so first time is always quite hard.
    Regards!
    Dimitry
