It seems possible, just needing to figure out where to place the TB out of sight & other sensors so that no lights show up.
Can you, I'm sure it's possible. You'd need to create some type of velocity stack set up similar to the s50 euro or s54. Honestly though without deleting the valvetronic and vanos then running custom cams there is no point other than aesthetics. The stock "throttle body" has enough area for the amount of flow anything the n52b30 needs in a stock former (no internal changes, only bolt ons)
