I highly recommend it. I put it in this summer using Eric's kit from m50manifold.com

It was pretty easy to install, just time consuming.

You can expect a deeper sound, around 20-30rwhp with an intake. Proven with dynos.
Most noticeable difference is the car doesn't run out of breath past 4000rpm. It just keeps pulling and pulling.

Yup as long as its from an OBDI car, it'll work. Again, highly recommend this mod.

^^^ this info is WRONG. The "M50" manifold off the e36 320 is NOT the same part as the one off the the 325 and S50 M3. You'll end up with a major vac leak, I can guarantee it... Source one from somewhere else...

Edit... this mod doesn't work on the 318... unless you've got an OBDii 323, 328, or M3, you c annot swap on the m50 manifold.

Wow my bad. Whats the difference between the two? I noticed the ribs on the side are a little different. Thought being an M50 motor, it would of been the same manifold.

Good mod. However I would purchase the hole kit. You might save $100 if you look for parts. Do it properly don't take short cuts.
