M50 Kit Question

So is this kit everything i need to install the m50 on my car, like the bolts, gaskets and everything to have an OEM like fit. Not a bad price then eh?

i think he is talking about the M50 Intake Manifolds. didnt know they sell a kit. watever it is dont buy the kit buy the manifold and grab the little gaskets from the dealer. it will prolly works out cheaper @ the end.

the big part about the M50 manifold swap is not just getting the manifold itself, but having your car programmed to utilize the manifold to its proper potential. you should really talk to thinair, hes the man to talk to , he has done this mod and has done it right.

I bought the kit and it not just a bunch of hoses and gaskets.
Kit includes an adapter that makes an installition much, much easier.
If you wanna save money and not worried about running to home depot for various parts to finish it, do not get the kit.

If you dont want any hassles and easy install, get the kit.

I've also done some research on this modification, and personally I think the best route to go would be source your own M50 manifold, and If you have to just get the install kit (200$ish).. That would ultimately be the best route because here they are charging you a good 200+ US for that manifold not to mention shipping etc....I'm sure you could get a good M50 from a wrecker.

Thats just what I'm thinking...But If we get a few of us maybe Group Buy??
I'm interested in the mod but I've heard Eurospeed or something has a good M50 kit which comes with software..there sites down from what i gather tho.

I think mark has software for the m50 manifold. You should PM him to be sure, but when i asked him, i think he said something to the effect of "the MAF can automatically adjust itself based on the amount of air on the intake"

once again. PM him. Im not mark
