Anyone successfully running ACS w/ M50 manifold on OBDII M3

I have heard that people have disconnected their motor for ACS due to the larger Manifold and the way it sits in the engine results no way to connect ACS. Could anyone verify this and can your ABS work without the ACS connection?

Reason I ask, I am having continuous ABS issues and difficult to trace the actual cause.

When I switched to M50 manifold I did not have to remove the ASC. Everything worked fine. I did have to remove it when I installed a supercharger since there is no room for it. So to answer your question, ABS works fine without the ASC

If you reuse the throttle body and buy the kit with the adapter to use the OBDII throttle body then you can retain ASC.

If you switch to an OBDI trottle body then you've essentially removed it.

I had ASC for a while after I did the swap until I removed it.
