Can't really find the exact answer I'm looking for to this simple question:

Is it even worth it to install the 3IM without the tune?

I have the IM, just waiting to acquire a tune, MPE and intake. Funds are what's in my way...

So should I just put it on or wait??

Thank you to all who have posted on this thread!!!

Install the manifold and get the 330 tune from Bimmerlabs for free. get a full featured tune from BPC or AA later when you can. You will enjoy the Bimmerlabs 330 tune until then.

How do you guys find these intakes?

Hey guys. First poster here. I am a ebay-test-pilot and I most recently installed the MERTOP ebay-specials supersprint headers.

My question is this, how do you guys get these the intake? calling junk dealers constantly and hopefully beating the next guy to it seems like the best option.

Also, does the 538i Have the DISA style intake?

Thanks in advance

I got mine from an auto parts yard as you mention. I specifically asked for the intake manifold for a SULEV N51 engine. They looked it up, found a nearby yard with a 2009 328i SULEV, ordered it up with "all accessories attached", and a few days later it arrived with both DISA valves.
528i SULEV will have the same 3IM as a 328i SULEV.

538i doesn't exist, so I'm guessing you meant 528i

How did the headers install? Did they fit?
I thought there was some problems with fitting?
