  5. Oil Catch Can Alternative

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Hello - I'm considering to skip the oil catch can install I did 20.000km ago (drawn in red on the picture below), and instead just cap off the intake boot and let the crankcase breather vapors exit, maybe through a hose away from the engine compartment (drawn in green on the picture below)...

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Hi i am wondering the 323 has the same m52 engine as a 325 but has a smaller inlet manifold. Can you fit a e46 325 inlet manifold to a e46 323??? If so how difficult is it. Also id like to know if there is anyway to increase the power whilst keeping it naturally asperated. Many thanks

It also has some smoke coming from the engine compartment, when cold. When warm everything was fine and performance was normal. I took it to the dealer and...
