I've been looking for headers and camshafts for my car at couple of sites such as AATuning, Turnermotorsports, and UUCMotorwerks. They say they have them for E36 but then i look at the years and it is for 1995 M3 and up. I have a 1992 325i and i don't know if it will work. Because i ordered a lightweight flywheel from AA and they said it will work so when i got it, i took it to my mechanic and he said it wouldn't fit because it was for a M3. I don't want to make the same mistake again and go through the hassle of ordering MORE parts and spending MORE money to just make it fit, if you know what I mean. So if you guys know anything that could help me it would help out a lot. Thanks.

The AA flywheel should work, but you will need a M3 clutch and M3 throw out bearing.

BMP design has headers and camshafts as well. I think they have some for your car (ie will fit). But its been a while since I looked.

camshafts in a non vanos....I know it isnt recommened because the vanos picks up the slack in the lower RPM's. My assumption is that your car will be a dog until 3500 RPM when the cams start to kick into the power band. This is why I think your having a hell of a time finding them
