    Group Buy - RHD Equal Length Manifold

    absolutely, I always forget the E24!

    Group Buy - RHD Equal Length Manifold

    yes. there is one person I know with an E9 that is keen to trial fit it so that may open up another chassis in time. if a full redesign / retool isn’t needed then it would be great. A different down pipe will be the obvious part needed but that’s the easy bit once the manifold is in place.

    Group Buy - RHD Equal Length Manifold

    yes, as much of this has been considered - within reason - as there are some models with A/C too as you can see from the attached. There is no denying it’s USP is performance so having the exhaust cerakote finished to keep heat down may be required but anyone still running a stock AFM Truly isn’t getting the full benefit from this. My 530 MLE is on triple 45’s and my E28 is on ITBs so the manifold temp (intake and exhaust) aren’t a primary concern.
  4. Hi Guys, firstly, admin please delete this if not allowed but as some of you know I have been co-developing a RHD equal length exhaust manifold for those E12/E28 owners that truly want a performance manifold for their cars. I will have one installed to my E28 that is currently at Hack Engineering where my M30B36.5 ;) is being built. I will also have the same manifold fitted to my E12 530 MLE they will be rolling road tuned at Northampton Motorsport with the stock cast OE manifold first, then the equal length tubular manifold fitted afterwards for direct back-to-back comparisons. if anyone is interested in a group buy, minimum 10 required but further price drop if we can get 20+. Don’t even ask how much a one-off is as it’s just not even worth mentioning! the manifold is 6-2 and there is an option to buy it with a 2><2 downpipe too. here are some pictures of the prototype from approx 4 weeks ago. Car used for trail figment was a E28 ALPINA B9 - RHD of course.

    All four corners off the 530 MLE for a full suspension and brake refurb and refresh. New dampers, roll bars and bushings all round and had the paintwork professionally detailed before new decals get applied. Once the struts and trailing arms get back from powder coating the reassembly can commence. Video:

    Been a while since I posted a picture! I’ve been told assembly is well underway at Hack Engineering so here’s hoping to some engine (or engine bay!) shots on the next video.

    The next part of the E28 build is up from Hack Engineering. Not much to see but a tech piece as the engine build gets underway. Episode 4: https://youtu.be/0-w8qbCOjA4

    1976 E12 530 MLE

    Sticker kit comes off this week to have paintwork professionally corrected before a genuine MLE sticker kit get applied. Next update will include the “relatively low offset” BBS MAHLE 15x8 fitted and exterior professionally finished.

    hi Ivor, I actually think I do. If you can get the part number from RealOEM I can double check when I get a chance at the weekend.

    Postman came today bearing gifts! Most of these parts are to tighten up the wooly shifter, if you know you know! Just waiting for the UUC DSSR to arrive and the BMW rubber shift boot - thanks @Collective-friction for the E21 part number 25111209868, i think this genuine item will be a much better option than the Wallothnesch one - https://www.wallothnesch.com/en/rubber-boot-for-gearshift-lever-13346.html I will post pics of both when they arrive and fingers crossed one of them fits the E12.

    No. Is the pump actually different (pressure wise) or just connections? I’ve had new lines made up so I predict the box -> pump unions were matched during reassembly.
