Thanks for sharing, it looks like a fun drive. Iíve had my 335 for three years and have had no issues but wouldnít hesitate to doing something similar with a 328.

Looks like you beat the snot out of it and Brandon was babying it. I love it! I want to get my exhaust to sound like that too. what else do you have planned for it?

I think you are right, Brandon was babying it a bit lol

CobraMarty was working on an exhaust cam for the n52 so Iím waiting to see how that pans out. The MILVís only act on the intake valves so thereís probably 8-10 more whp on the table if the exhaust cams can get done.

And I want to do something for a rear diffuser.

Thatís all I have left on my mind for this car.

Are these cams you're talking about "lobier"? Cause that's the only way any cam should sound in my opinion lol

Canít say what they would sound like because they donít exist yet. It seems like the project kind of stalled out also... so not even sure if they will ever exist lol

Saw the video and went to find your thread! Great stuff!

An M-Tech rear would be the perfect finishing piece

Thank you! I appreciate the feedback and I’m glad you enjoyed the video. Brandon did a great job with it!

How much trouble was the n54 intake manifold, what did you have to do to make it fit? Also, I love the stock intake, gives a very nice OEM look to the car 👍

Thank you!

N54 manifold is not a direct fit you will have to modify the manifold mounts. I posted a how to on the forum with the details of how I did it. You can find all the info in this thread I started...

https://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1582915

Also you will need to get a custom tune for it. Bob Bishop who tuned my set up for Bimmer Performance Center now has his own shop located here:

How long/difficult was it to replace the differential?

Not bad. I did it twice, the first time I swapped to a 3.73 diff from a 328i Auto rwd. That was a direct bolt up.

The second time I changed to a 3.91 diff from an Auto Xdrive model. That diff had a shaft sticking out of the pinion that needed to be trimmed and the flange had to be swapped to the rwd flange to mate to my driveshaft.

Both times I did the swap on jackstands as shown in my pic. Took about 2 hours to actually do the swap.

I'm sure it's been stated some where before, but what's the advantages of going with the N54 intake over the 3SIM?

N54 = More peak power, makes power all the way to 7500 rpms.

3IM = More torque down low, direct bolt on.

The N54 makes the motor feel and behave like the S54 from the e46m3. Iíve run both manifolds and liked the n54 better. If you have a manual the n54 with a rear diff swap (3.73 or 3.91) is tits. You can take advantage of a raised redline and it makes the car a beast.

If you have an automatic then you canít take advantage of the rear diff swap or the power above 7000rpms so the low end torque of the 3IM is better.

Nice, I might look into this intake setup, sounds like the better alternative for a manual
