Check out the Korman-Stahl Headers @ www.kormanfastbmw.com. There are no prices listed so you will have to call them....probably expensive.

thanks. is there any benefit with them . or should i stay with stock and just have it opened up for more flow . also if you do not mind . if you know ,does it have 4/2/1 system or straight 4/1 and would you still need a cat if you have headers . legally in the US . iv seen and checked the forums about motor swaps and i would love to keep the m10 and see how far i can push it with normal power ups .thanks

supersprint also makes headers for the e30......the odd time you can find a set of racing dynamics headers on e-bay, so check there too...

If you gain even 8hp I'll eat my boxers.

Don't keep the M10. I'm telling you, you'll regret the money you throw at it.

why if honda has these 4 bangers with all this power . is the m10 to week . i know that the 6 has a lot of torque but is that much difference . the m10 from what i read has 105 hpw and 135 tpw the m50 is about 125 hpw and 170 tpw . your telling that you cant change cams and springs injectors etc on the m10 to do this ? im sure with some work it can put up at least 200 hpw and 200 tpw ? i read somewhere that they rebuild an m10 to about 160 hpw . you can buy it for 4000 i think . no one here has a m10 build up . i cant believe that all swaped them out . if so thats fine i like to be different anyway the car still needs alot of work . still havent fix the gas tank yet . so all you speed guys who live a 1/4 mile at a time i live 1-4 of a tank at a time . also my battery died again . and i notice now that my seat belt buzzer sounds . so now i need to find the fuse that gives it power to disconnect . but for now i just plug in the seat belt so that it will stop . if im wrong about the m10 i guess i would look in to the m50 swap .

Its cause the M10 is ancient.. it just ain't worth the work. Unless a nice high boost application is coming in. It really is a dog. Mine is around 37 kW at the wheels.. *shudder*. Glad I got a new car hah.

edit: The m10 .. JUST has 100 hp at the FLYWHEEL lol.

you can run the front suspension. you need the complete engine, tranny, driveshaft and rear end.As for cost your best to find a wrecked car. if you cant find one it will bea better investment to go with a m50 than the m20.there is a big cost difference between the engines. I have a few wiring diagrams that will help you switch the 1,8 harness to the 2.5 . look for some parts here
