I always heard 15-25hp to the crank depending on the car.

Call Chucks auto
416-740-9211 or 416-749-0711.
He sells the for $200, if in stock. Slightly more if not. I've gotten or sent 5 people there now and he's filled the order every time.
Can it be installed without software- yes. No problem.
I'll install it for you for $240.00 including all required adaptors and custom vaccum lines.
I've done 3 installs so far and not one problem.
20hp would be a good estimation of the gains.
PM me if interested

Bill

Ammmm,
You're an M50, this upgrade doesn't apply to you.
The M50 manifold flows more air than the M52/S52 manifold, that's where the power is made. If you've got a 96 or newer car this upgrade applies to you.

Sorry dude,

Bill

You never know, didn't want you to go buy a manifold you already have! Although someone who's spend as much time on the boards as you "likely" knew- I didn't want to see that happen.

If you're buddy needs the installation looked after let me know.

Hmmm, so this applies to my e36 then? (M52, 2.5L inline 6 168bhp) (98 323is)?
Whats involved anything else that has to be swapped in order for this to work?
Thanks
Jay

Sorry guys. Owned by the T.U.

What this means is that you're double vanos. This manifold only works with single vanos.

Trade in your cars for 97 328's. Then I can do wonders for you.

Bill

BTW- Actually I can still do fan delete's, and pullies for you.

323's don't have vanos! And E46 Lover, Mark can reprogram a Dinan equiped car? That would be amazing. Someone shed some more light on this as I want to do this very soon..............

They don't have vanos?

News to me,
I can't say I have alot of experience poking aorund 98 323's. Most of my experience is with Z3's, MCoupe's, 328's, 635's, E30 M3's and E34 M5's.
Late 98 was the start of the M52 TU's that had double vanos and a differnet intake manifold design than the M52 single vanos. I thought 323's fell into the TU catagory.

Bill
