Gday from down under

Greetings to all you can call me Dazza I have just joined your forum, I own a 1996 E36 323I auto also a 1985 E30 323I manual fully option with factory lowered suspension. I have joined your forum for some assistance and also to be of assistance if I can. I am a mechanic and have done all my own repairs on my 2 BMW's as well as others. I have just completed the M50 manifold swap and am very happy with the extra horses up top, but have noticed quite a drop in torque in the lower RPM range. I have done a lot of research on this and found not a lot of help in regards to the E36 323I for software options to remap the ECU without spending a couple of grand I have a friend in Adelaide who is willing to dyno my BMW if I can find the software to do-it and this is where I need some assistance if I can ask. I know this may appear to be rude at such a time being a new guy to your forum I hope you will forgive me I look forward to any help.

regards Dazza

A drop in torque output may be associated with a decrease in intake manifold velocity, best of luck!

Welcome to the Werkz. Its always good to have another fellow Aussie on board. Hopefully someone can help you with this issue (not me though, I don't know the answer) Enjoy your time here, and where are you from?

Just round the corner.

I have driven to Yamba just to get a hamburger when I was younger, and used to love the playground at Monash, before it ws made politically correct, not much good in a thunderstorm though.

The Riverland is not a bad part of the world, definitely more water than Coober Pedy, a couple of hours to Adelaide, and some decent fishining within a stones throw.

I live here, but work in Ivanhoe. Mt Waverley & Glen Waverley are both nice established "green" suburbs, plenty of parks, trees etc

I would say that the manifold maybe accepting MORE air without the extra fuel to burn it... Maybe get "Hotter" spark plugs too !!

If it was running too lean wouldn't it throw an error code from the O2 sensors?
