|Get your M50 Manifold Conversion Adapter
for your BMW E36 M52 or S52!
ModBargains.com now offers
M50 Manifold Conversion Adapter Kits to convert any 1996-99 M52 or S52
engine to an M50 intake manifold.
This kit includes everything to fit an OBDI M50 manifold
to an OBDII M52 or S52 engine (1996-1999). It takes the guesswork out of
adding the M50 manifold to your engine. The kit includes a CNC machined
adapter, with all hardware and gaskets, that allows the freer flowing
M50 manifold to be installed while maintaining full function of M52/S52
components including factory PCV cyclone / oil seperator valve. No
vacuum leaks, no check engine lights. And
the entire kit is completely reversible. Turner Motorsport has dealt
with the problems from other kits and this adapter block is – by far –
the best solution.
The base price of this kit does not include the M50 manifold, but is
available for purchase.
You can pick up a used manifold from a 1992-1995 E36 325i or a 1995 M3
3.0 liter. You can find them in local junk or scrap yards, online at
Craigslist or eBay, or from various forums. If you would rather not deal
with the potential pitfalls of a used part, we can offer a new Original
BMW manifold to go with the adapter. While expensive, the new manifold
is guaranteed to be in perfect condition with no cracks, warping, or
foreign objects hidden inside. A new factory BMW manifold can be added
to your order by selecting the option below.
With the introduction of the 1996 model year came the
OBDII emissions compliant engine. Among the many changes the OBDII
engines received was a more restrictive air intake manifold. Where the
older M50/S50 engines continued to make power up in the higher RPMs, the
newer M52/S52 ran out of breath, limiting high-end horsepower, but
boosting low-end torque. Converting the OBDII cars to the 1995 and
earlier OBDI manifold is a popular modification to remove this high-rpm
Optional fuel rail cover. The
standard M52/S52 fuel rail cover is too tall for the M50 manifold and
does not have the proper brackets for securing it in place over the fuel
rail. We can correctly modify the stock M52 fuel rail cover for you to
complete the factory appearance.
To best maximize the horsepower gains of this
modification, you should be using the M50 manifold with bigger cams, HFM,
injectors, and software. We have found this combination of upgrades and
software to yield the best results for producing top-end power. Note:
using the M50 manifold shifts the power band higher in the RPM range.
This is GREAT for track cars but not well-suited for street cars where
the OBDII manifold works best to produce torque at lower RPM. Presently,
we do not have software tuned for only the
M50 manifold without cams or the HFM upgrade. Check our website again
for future product releases. We currently offer custom mapped Shark
Injectors for these packages:
E36 M3 - 3.5" HFM/24lb injectors/Schrick cams/stock OBDII
