Lol! Yeah I hear ya. I guess they are trying a different harness now. He's had 3 different people look at the wiring and nothing looks off... Something obviously is... But who knows.

Will M50tu manifolds work? I have the E36 exhaust up past the cats.

[EDIT] Nevermind - it looks like they're the same as M50 manifolds. They just look different in person.

New question: I know I need a E34 525i oil pan, but does it matter automatic or manual? I know sometimes they do weird things like bolt up to the transmission bellhousing.

Only difference should be in the wiring harness as far as the engine is concerned, there isn't a difference in housing mating area on the engine from what I remember.

If I found one of those I'd throw it on ebay and start shopping for small islands to buy and retire on, lol. I'm still convinced there is one out there somewhere lurking under the hood of some rusted out rat nest sitting in a field.

Exactly how much do you guesstimate one would sell for?

Interesting, I never noticed in that catalog pic that it's mounted on a 2.7e engine. Seems like a waste on a car with a 5k redline...

I would assume slapping that head on it would allow for a higher redline, am I wrong?
