    Okay so I know that manifolds are pretty expensive but I had a thought, did BMW ever make a turbo diesel M52? And if so, would the manifold for that fit onto a petrol M52 inlet? Just thinking this could be a cheaper option for turboers, any help appreciated

    There isn't a M52 diesel but there is a BMW M51 diesel engine. I'm not sure if this will fit or not but it looks like the M52 manifold.

    Sorry if i'm sounding stupid but whats stopping you from using the factory manifold?
