Hi guys,

Praying for some help on this topic which has no doubt been covered extensively somewhere so apologies.

After some questions I've discovered my engine is the M42B18 engine (I thought it was the M44).

My questions now are;

1) Is the M42 a twim cam engine?

2) I can only find M44 exhaust manifolds - Can this fit a M42 engine ?

3) Other than some online places Ebay are there any places that people in the South East know where there are BMW breakers/stockists that may have the part I need (assuming the m44 manifold won't fit)

Many thanks in advance!

(if I put this in the wrong place please let me know)

Hi mate,

yes , both the m42/m44 engines were twin cam, also i believe the internals were slightly different and the intake manifold was different but nothing was changed on the exhaust side ( as i believe ) I almost certain that it will fit as i used to have a 318is M42 and I replaced the exhaust manifold off a newer car and did not have any issues at the time.

hope this helps.
