I have a 735i sitting in my driveway, figured why not throw the air flow meter into my 325es. It even has the famous "027" part number that everyone says you dont have to change the internals on. So i did a little clever tubing and starter her up (no vacuum leaks). Ran ok for about a second, than ran like shit. It was spewing out black smoke so it must have been running super rich. Anyone know why that is? If anything it should be running lean right?

that particular swap is for "i" engines and also the new AFM may be stuffed.
