I remember the thread, but I cant find it. What I did find was a 328i race car using supersprint headers.

You're going to have to show me the matching part numbers...Im not finding it. The pic you used is a generic one from BMW. Check realoem and you'll see it is reused on every n51/2/3 diagram euro or us spec...even on my 9/05 325i which I know doesnt have that manifold.
