has discovered a number of Genuine BMW parts and accessories which can make outstanding upgrades to your BMW as direct replacement parts or OEM quality upgrades accross BMW models. The OEM E36 OBDI M50 Manifold is one of such kind of parts.

As always, changes were made to the E36 platform when cars went from OBDI to OBDII in 1996. In many cases, some of these changes resulted in the 1995 OBDI M3 possessing a performance advantage over the newer OBDII E36 M3s from 1996-1999 mostly due to emmissions restriction laws.

One of the changes toward the lower power side of the spectrum involved the E36 OBDII M3 manifold being airflow restrictive compared to the OBDI manifold, which, in a performance M3, or BMW tuning application, at some point becomes a limiting factor.

This restricted air flow problem can be corrected, and opened up by installing an OBDI M50 M3 manifold onto an OBDII M3, resulting in approximatey twice the runners capactiy, increasing airflow and fuel mixture capabilities.

To accomplish this conversion from OBDI to OBDII a number of differences between the two manifolds and their linkups and mechanics must be accounted for.

The KO Perfromance M50 Manifold Conversion kit includes all of the components required to covert your OBDII M3 over to an OBDI M50 Manifold, requiring some mechanical ability, but an upgrade which can be installed successfully by a very knowledgable home mechanic. Another alternative is available to complete the conversion to M50 manifold, the Eurosport M50 Manifold Conversion kit.

Either way you decide to go, the KO M50 Manifold Conversion kit includes the M50 manifold, sold in the kit, or sold separately as well, which is required for the Eurosport Conversion kit as well. You can't go wrong!
