  1. [MOD] 323i -> 330i Intake Manifold + Tune-ish

    General E46 Forum
    Hi everyone, long time lurker but I now have something to post so here goes. I own a 2000 323i E46 (some 246,000kms) with an engine that's in tip-top shape, no oil consumption whatsoever, no nothing. I had the classic misfire issues caused by vacuum leaks and a broken PCV system, but other...
  2. Bunch of engine problems after removing manifold, ideas?

    General E46 Forum
    Hi gentlemen, I did a starter replacement job a while back. Have an xi AWD so it was easier for me to get to it from the engine by removing the intake manifold than to go from the bottom due to the diff and other extras down there. I took off the manifold, replaced the starter, while I'm there...
  3. M54B22 intake manifold swap?

    General E46 Forum
    Hey guys. New to the forum, not new to BMW's. I have a 320i Touring with the 2.2L motor. I have the opportunity to grab the full intake off of a 325ci. So I'm wondering if there are any sizes differences in the 2 manifolds and/or throttle bodies? If there are, i'm definitely not expecting...
  4. PSA: Removing the cylinder head with exhaust manifold on

    General E46 Forum
    I needed to remove the cylinder head and was having trouble removing the exhaust manifold the way the Bentley manual described, so I was able to remove the head with the exhaust manifold still bolted on. You need to be pretty strong to lift the whole thing out at the awkward position you're...
  5. M52 Intake Manifold Removal?

    General E46 Forum
    Hey guys, would it be worth it to remove my intake manifold during the winter? I have a coolant leak right under it, and Im pretty certain its coming from the heater hoses. I already have the o rings for the hoses, but I still need to order the manifold gasket. How many hours approx. did it take...

    Before anything, I did try searching for a bit before posting this. Car is a 2002 325xi sedan I had my headgasket let go on me yesterday, and the car is currently in the shop. As long as the head bolts don't strip in the block and the head is not cracked we will just resurface the head and be...

  12. P0171 P0174 Lean Codes

    Driveline, Engine & DME Tuning
    The car runs fine so I have ignored these codes for a while now but smog is due so it is time to fix. These codes indicate a lean condition which is usually attributed to a leak in the intake system. The usual suspect is the DISA valve or the intake boots. I used this opportunity to build a...

    DIY: Do It Yourself
    Hey Guys, So I'm in the proccess of putting in my new headers. I wanted to it right so I got all new gaskets. However all threads tell you to buy more studs for the new headers, but my gaskets stagger the holes for the original manifolds. Should I drill the extra holes. If the orignal manifold...

  19. Intake Manifold Rattling

    General E46 Forum
    I noticed the rattle sound while sitting at stop lights. It sounded like a loose heat shield but I popped the hood and noticed it was coming from the intake manifold. It only happens after the car has warmed up for a few minutes and while its in drive. No noise at all in park or neutral. I've...
