    Juggs, intake mani looks good! Awesome to know you did it yourself and had fun doing it. If it makes more power, even better!

    Thanks man! Yeah exactly, I'm not hurting for power but I think it'll do well. The throttle body alone should be worth a lot, it's hilarious looking at the stock BMW TB in retrospect. It's frankly amazing the M50 manifold with the M50 TB works as well as it does.

    I have thought the TB is pretty undersized as well. It will be interesting to see if you have some better response with the larger throttle body.

    As usual I'm too stupid to make one change at a time so it'll be impossible to really say what affected what (in addition to the intake, I deleted the BOV and using the EFR bypass valve, and changing my downpipe to be a true 4", flanging out right off the housing. Also while taking my car apart I found a blue paper towel inside one of the chambers of my segregated Treadstone end tank, another gift from my engine builder who left the oil squirters out. So hopefully all that will add up to significant improvements :P
