328 vs. 330 exhaust

Hello, I was wondering if there is anything really different between these two exhausts. I may be uninstalling my PE and will need a replacement. The 328 exhuast is alot more common and much easier to come by. Just wondering if there would be any real different in putting the 328 exhuast on the 330. Thanks!

There is a vacuum activated flap on the 330i that isn't on the 328i. It helps with a bit of lower end torque. The 328i will work just fine. Get which ever you can find.

^that is correct. the only thing would be you might have a vacuum line that has nothing to attach to. that shouldnt be a problem though.

More like, he could have found one of the numerous threads answering his question through a search. I took the time to answer for him, but it wasn't good enough apparently.

Why are you getting rid of PE?
