The stock down pipes cause a major restriction in the exhaust flow. More of a personal preference, this just allows for even further exhaust customization. Remove the nut from the motor mount. The full M54B30 swap would work but would be a bit of leg work. My friend bought me one for my birthday, but I'm going to have to put it on my girl friends 328i. These performance downpipes produce more power than the stock exhaust pipes and add a sporty exotic tone to your exhaust note. Figure 2 Open all six-ignition coil electrical connectors by rotating the connector red arrow up 90°.
September 3, 2016 Followup from the Pelican Staff: I answer tech questions. Figure 72 Remove the crankshaft locking pin and the camshaft locking tools. Always catch fluids in appropriate containers and properly dispose of any fluid waste. Even at a premium price Supersprint is an unbeatable exhaust system because every aspect is done to such a high level. So the question is; has anyones swapped them over and what were the results? Two coating options are available: Silver and Black. Article edits and corrections I pass onto the web team. The solution was a single mid pipe which eliminated much of the annoying sound.
Next, remove the camshaft and crankshaft locking tools. If working with the electrical system, disconnect the battery before beginning. Special software or stand-alone engine management may be required to prevent fault codes and other conditions. Figure 5 Remove the exhaust manifold fasteners green arrows. The factory downpipe, while excellent for maintaining strict emission regulations, does nothing to unlock the performance of a turbocharged engine.
October 7, 2018 Followup from the Pelican Staff: Totally different engine, totally different. When the internal honeycomb structure is removed in favor of a straight and hollow piece, these issues are alleviated. These are perfect to add power, performance, and stunningly good looks. This header system features an X-pipe after the headers to improve exhaust flow and scavenging. The compression ratio is 11. It is simple science but feel free to go and bang your head against something, Fitting decent headers m3 to my 328 released another 12 kW and 10Nm of torque - making comparisons to poorly engineered 2 valve? Stainless steel construction retains heat much better than the mild steel often found in cheaper copies of our header.
However, most times it is better to go with a used lower mileage engine. These performance downpipes produce more power than the stock exhaust pipes and add a sporty exotic tone to your exhaust note. Power gains with a cat section depend on the type of cat. To address the problems with the factory manifolds without compromising durability, the stock exhaust catalysts are removed when the Active Autowerke 3-series sports header is installed. Supersprint exhausts generally run at a premium over other systems but no other system on the market can match their quality, performance, or reputation! Most Supersprint systems are built with larger diameter piping to improve exhaust flow which helps the engine do less work and make more horsepower! After much research and testing we discovered the synchronization of the Turbos as the main factor in the sound. The design of the Supersprint down pipes takes advantage of even the smallest space available and frees the exhaust gas flow dramatically. Alternatively you can weld westgate pipe in other place.
This photo shows the manifolds with the engine removed for clarity.

Slowly rotate the engine until the pin drops in about 12mm further. This makes them a direct swap from the stock manifolds and downpipes and an easy fitment for E30s with the stock exhaust. The cylinder head gasket is responsible for sealing the cylinders and the oil and coolant that pass from the top to the bottom of the engine.
No sense in spending money on 'go fast' parts when you would gain more from a good valve job, piston rings, etc. The S52 has a redline of 7,000 rpm while the M52 has a 6,500 rpm redline. The 330 head should work with no problems and give a bit of a performance gain due to deeper breathing. When installing the tool, push it in until it bottoms out. June 24, 2018 Followup from the Pelican Staff: I will reach out to the web team again. Due to an internal honeycomb structure that the exhaust gasses must pass through, flow is massively reduced.
Bump sticks and everything else seem to cross over between the two. No, I didn't miss the point. Support the engine from below using a jack or jack stand. Looking for even more power? Hopefully it's 2012 or beyond, because that will mean I've had 2+ years of racing out of it. All components are supplied for a hassle-free installation with no modifications necessary. The 325 head is a slam-dunk-gonna-work path. Just saw that it's an M54.
