just got done cutting the air filter box up all thats left is half of a side... with 2 holes , one to screw it into the car the other is to screw into the AMF I just put it in

well i hope i did everything alright... kinda scared.. it was hard to hear the hissingn sound since there is a lound bad exhaust in back, clicking noise and some kinda broken fan noise in the engine but i still heard the hissing... what will happend if i did it wrong like will the engine blow up!?!? ahh im scared the AMF dosnt really have that much support and thats also scary

ekk has anyone ever put this damn cone filter in an 87 before!?

noo I did all that cutting for nothing! lol

edit: ok i found this heat shield.. now it looks like it will hold up the AMF if u look at the pictures cause it has a little base at the bottom eh?

lol schneider... calm down. Nothings going to happen. Just technically break down the engine into its components. And you need to rehook that sensor up btw.

Whens the last time u had ur Oxygen sensor replaced. MOst of the time last can cause random idling. That is somewhat normal also, the engine just runs at higher rpm's to get the oil circulating then it will drop down, I would still get a new oxygen if you haven't already.

No I believe there is only one Oxygen Sensor. You can see it right on the down pipes coming down from the headers, thats the way it is on the 325i, mine cost about 75 dollars
