Three stage manifold

I went to look at a intake manifold from a 01' 330, and was expecting a 3 stage with disa valves and saw this instead. The guy mentioned if I was expecting a cast manifold or a plastic one? what's up with this???

That's for the M54, not for the N52. The M54 engines were only 2 stage intakes, so only one DISA unit. And you can see the inlets for the ICV - the N52 intake just has simpler round intake gaskets since the throttle is managed by the Valvetronic system and there is not ICV.

01 330i is an M54 - wrong engine.

You are looking for the N52 part from 2006 onwards. Over here we got the E90 in 2005 already, but in other areas from 2006.

Edit: not sure till which year though...

I think maybe the E60 530i had as early as 2005?

If you are looking for E90 330i its only one year - 2006. But any n52 3stage manifold will work. They also came in z4s, the x3, and i think the x5.

E60 starts in 2004 (prod date 07/2004).
And according to realOEM, E90 330i (and xi) were produced between 2004 and 2008.

Filtering for P/N 11617559523 on real OEM will provide multiple matches for 1 Series (128 with N51), 3 Series (328i with N51, 330i), 5 Series (E60, E61), X3 (2006-2010), X5 (2006-2010), Z4 (E85, E86, E89).

One other small complication, Look out for the number of small ports on the bottom. These are used for the crank case ventilation and oil recovery. I believe early models had one port while late models had two. Oil recovery internal to the valve cover vs. an external oil recovery. Makes the install/swap easier if you have a manifold that matches your original.

yeah but those would have been early production euro market cars - I don't think we got them until the 2005 production year (2006 model year), and we didn't get them after the 2006 production year. 2006 MY is the only 330i we have.
