Otherwise, it's pretty much "unbolt what you need to get at it, unbolt it, don't force anything, installation is the reverse of removal".

I have pictures of mine somewhere. I can probably get the up early next week, since I'll be hitting ACBF in Boston this weekend. Keep an eye out for a red 325 with Vermont plates.
Are you talking about the green arrow in this pic? http://www.pelicanparts.com/BMW/tech...arge/pic22.jpg

I recently did the intake manifold swap but I didn't pay attention to the order of those connectors. I just connected them randomly.

Are you sure there must be an order? Since I can't find related info elsewhere and the car drives without problem.

If you do know the order could you share with us?

Thanks!

I dont remember needing anything else. I have a couple of pics, but I stopped taking them after a while.

The hardest part I found was the crank case hoses. I broke both installing. The next hardest is to unhook the crank case plugs that hook into the back of the manifold near the firewall. You will also need to mark them so you dont get them backwards. Another issue I ran into was the

Part #14 is the power plug Im talking about for the vent hoses. Another issue I ran into was the #9 bracket that has a distro block clipped to it. You almost have to break the tabs to remove it.


You can see the plugs for the vent hoses in this pic
Are you sure there's an order for the connectors?
