Is it true you can 15hp with a new intake manifold? I was looking at Tuners Schrick Intake Manifold:

I asked Doug about a DIY installation....he said it would invalidate the parts warranty...any comments?

If you're an OBD-II then you will make a horsepower gain, but lose low end torque. The OBD-II M3 manifold has shorter plenums to improve low end torque, but at the cost of high end horsepower. the best option is to simply switch to an S50 manifold (your engine is an S52) because I doubt the turner manifold makes much more power than that.

No, don't worry. It's cool. I'm taking it back for us.

So what are the advantages of an m50 manifold? And where can I pick one up?

I put the Schrick Intake Manifold about 6 or so months ago.. and to tell you the truth... I didnt lose all that much low end torque.... I still pull through first and second.... the M never had a problem with that any ways.... I did notice a jump in performance from around 50-75mph...

To tell you the truth.. I think it just moved my power band up maybe at the most 250-500rmps...

Well, obviously I'd like a high-end gain, but not if it means sacraficing low end torque. These cars don't have enough low end power as it is. Is the m50 intake manifold just the one used on the e36 m3 or what?

m50 is the one used on the m50 engine of the 325s.

Why would I want a 325 intake manifold on a 328?

P.S. - Alpine, you joined this forum on my bday =P

The 325s manifold isn't restrictive, it's the freest flowing manifold on any 6 cylinder 3 series (euros excluded) because it doesn't have to comply with OBD II.
